City Paper is missing a gear...several open mic events in our area, and a growing trend for performers--like myself--who sing at several venues each week...I sing at 5 or 6 venues each week, typically, and see the excitement growing regularly. The events are getting regular YouTube coverage (see "Open mic at Parson Jack's--YouTube"), and Kinetic Hi Fi Internet radio has been broadcasting live from Home Team Barbecue on Monday nights at the Susie Summers Songwriters all original events...City Paper needs a columnist to visit all of the events and interview the performers each week! --Thanks for the opportunity to comment!
They will be happy....... Good looking out you guys!!!! Great article btw!!!!
I remember seeing these guys as "Bell Harmony" and then "Bell" at several now-defunct places downtown and being completely skeptical when I heard they were changing their name to Crowfield and going for it as an original act. But then I actually heard "Jesus In My Pocket" on The Bridge and the rest of "Goodbye, Goodnight, So Long Midwestern" since and being really impressed. I thought that it had real potential to be the rocket booster they wanted.
I'm sad to hear of their imminent end. Damn... just like Leslie.
The change has been made.
Joel what a great article, thank you. Crowfield will be missed and I think many friends and fans will share your feelings and emotions that night. It has been a pleasure to watch their journey.
Savage souls is a trio..... Notice three dudes in the pic!!! HIPHOPISBACK!!!
Joel, great article. And to me what's special about Crowfield is that so many people feel similar to you as they review their 'relationship" to Crowfield. Obviously most do not share your unique camaraderie with the boys in the band but those guys made it their job to reach out to their friends and fans and bring them into the fold that was, is, and will forever be Crowfield.
I'm sorry, WE'VE been considering relocating to Atlanta. If the KFB now moves there it will seem as though all the cool and trendy people are headed that way and hordes of wanna-bes will flood the area.
Couldn't you pick somewhere else? I hear Red Bank is LOVELY this time of year.
It says Saturday, April 4th for the CJO website has it as the 23 of March. Am I misreading it?
bullocksonU, go back to being an old fart riding around in your "Cumaro", listening to .38 Special with your loser drinking buddies wondering what could have been if you worked half as hard as MJKFB. Just because an artist doesn't sell out large theatres, arenas, ect, doesn't mean they are irrelevant. Megan Jean and Byrne have worked very hard for several years now and they are gaining national indie music attention. I predict that before the end of this decade, they will have an audience at least 10 times it's current size. I look at them as a source of inspiration and as mentors. They may not have a platnum album yet and they might not ever. However, they will almost definitely make a decent living off of it for quite sometime. Besides, I have had my "rock n' roll fantasy" notions destroyed by the not-so-glamorous day-to-day operations of running a project and I haven't done 5% of the work they have so far. In spite of this, I still want to do it. This isn't a glamorous job, I've talked to several artists that have had followings from being loved in their hometown only all the way up to selling out large arenas and everyone says that the glamour people see is just an image. It's not always party central, often, it's tedious and frustrating, even after you're world famous. I've already experienced some of this and I still want to put the songs out there. Please stop with your simpleton comments.
Better than being a sad old fart, reading about someone else's glory days, wishing they were your own.
Ha. I guess u r really busy meg, glad u could make time to read the story about ur self and comment a couple times. Go back to being irrelevant and playing the likes of the Crab shack and the oasis.....no offense crab shack, y'all have good fried shrimp.
we were too busy selling the show out to care. yeah that's right, I'm a real person who isn't famous, driving from town to town playing music, and not some lame-ass idiot hiding behind a computer. bet your most rock and roll story is that time you got drunk alone (again) and pissed yourself.
OMG SORRY I'M NOT ROCK AND ROLL ENOUGH FOR YOU BULLOCKSONU. twat.
Saw Fuller Condon in the crowd a few nights ago at the Royal American. He was NOT wearing jeans. Later he smoozed with bassist Tim Peacock of the band Woody Pines. (http://chuckography.blogspot.com)
Possibly some of the lamest rock & roll stories I've ever heard. Shame on u Bowers for writing this drivel. Groupies, Zeppelin and a mud shark. That's a good rock & roll story! It's worth a google kids.
Can't wait for tomorrow night's show!
I really like listening to this music. Ironically, it makes me feel quite lively.
Grace you are.. She kicks open the swinging saloon doors to the City of Charleston, S.C. She then stacks a Duracell battery upon her left shoulder with the look of dare to knock it from it's perch, then she curses with confidence... Oops! La grâce que vous êtes au naturel! Je t'aime.
