Relix -The Magazine For Music - Wilco, Keyspan Park, Brooklyn, NY 7/13/09

Relix -The Magazine For Music - Wilco, Keyspan Park, Brooklyn, NY 7/13/09

I was in attendance, front and center, it was one of the sweetest concert nights ever, ever, ever...

Jeff Tweedy and his band of magical musicians on a summer night in Coney Island, Brooklyn, surrounded by mellow, fellow Wilco

lovers was like being in a dream. Nels Cline's leads always so intricate, with the rest of the band keeping up, the crowd eating

it up. I hope that I never forget this night.

P.S. Mr. Tweedy was hanging off the monitors singing straight to me that night, I'll post the pic I took to prove it! Blogs - Rhett Miller MySpace Blog Blogs - Rhett Miller MySpace Blog click on Rhett's face, that will bring you to his myspace and you can listen to some of his solo work.

For the past 10 years or so, Rhett Miller, and the rest of the Old 97's have been my go to band; when I wanted to sing at the top of my lungs, or when I danced around the room (like in the ipod ads),or walked around the room and kicked things, the Old 97's have been in the background.
With that in my mind this is my first blog about the band. I cannot say everything I feel about their music in one blog...
The above link features Rhett Miller singing his latest single from his current Cd entitled, Rhett Miller.
The band's newest Cd is entitled, Blame it on Gravity, it's excellent, more about that later.

This blog entry focuses on Allie Moss.
Instead of struggling to write about what a wonderful musician Allie is, I decided to copy and paste a few of her tunes. I will add this,
her voice and her harmonies are unparalleled by anyone around these days.
Her original songs and guitar playing are accomplished. I like that at such a young age
Allie writes and sings about age old sentiments. Her song, "Days I Regret" always makes me cry (in a good way).
Seeing Allie perform her own material live is a special thing.
She is a perfectionist, and is always working toward improving her craft. A true artist, and a humanitarian...hard to top
a talent that is Allie Moss.

Ingrid Michaelson, if you don't know her name, you should.
This lady writes, plays and performs tunes that make you think. Some of her lyrics can bring tears to one's eyes. However, some of her tunes are hilariously funny, and her stage presence will make you want to attend every one of her shows.
Ingrid has over a million and a half hits on my space, so she doesn't need my rave review, but yes, she does, cause she's assembled a band of musicians who all have wonderful songs and Cd's that you should lend an ear to! So today is Ingrid day. Click on her many wonderful performances. The one that I've chosen is her tongue in cheek version of her tune..."Take Me the Way I Am."
Oh, the fine folks in LA are hip to her, and have used some of her serious songs on Grey's Anatomy; so you may have heard her songs, but didn't know who was making such heavenly sounds.
She was raised on Staten Island. Yes folks, genius can flourish on "the rock."

Musical Intentions

I intend to introduce new and exciting music and musicians, but you have to do your part.
This just means that I may suggest you click on YouTube link.
Let's start with Roger Ridley. This video will help explain what I would ultimately love this blog to do...transform lives by exposing you to new art and artists.

Is It Just Me

or has anyone else noticed a plethora of young musicians who write, sing, play and perform their own awesome creations.
Through this blog, I would like to introduce some of the musicians that are baring their souls day after day, night after night.

Follow me, we'll find the music that you can't hear on the radio.
