Re: “Hot Club of Cowtown singer and violinist — and KC native — Elana James on her band's latest, Rendezvous in Rhythm

What makes me cringe is this quote. "I think this creepy obsession with new, new, new, personal 'I wrote it' stuff is a kind of plague on American traditional music". Huh? This is disrespectful to those who write original roots music. There's nothing wrong with doing standards but does she have to insult those who are forging their own path and choosing to write their own music?

@William

Delta blues? ...no. Pokey Lafarge mostly plays western swing, with elements of hot jazz and blues, and is infatuated with Steinbeck. I thought it was analagous to this interview because Elana said that "Our music basically sounds like if you were out driving in Texas during the late 1930s" which would be right in LaFarge's wheelhouse. His band also dresses up in the style of that time period

Re: “The Grisly Hand returns with Country Singles

I saw em open for Black Oak Arkansas at the Riot Room last summer. Both bands were great.

Great interview. You don't describe "Hot Club's" music, you experience it. We can't wait to travel to Texas from New York, each year, to "experience" Hot Club @ The Continental. The first time I heard them, I closed my eyes and tried to figure out who they sounded like. After the 4th tune, I gave up. Elana isn't Nataile Mc McMaster, Whit isn't Tony Matola and Jake has no equal, period. Now put them together and the chemistry is pure fun and musical heaven. Can you tell, I'm a true fan?

Re: “The Grisly Hand returns with Country Singles

I highly recommend seeing the Grisly Hand live. I got to see them on my birthday this year in Chicago and they were great. Hopefully, our paths cross again some day.

Re: “Dolewite sells it on the weekend

I don't understand what is "very depressing". They have fun, it's nostalgic and the people in the crowd have fun. They're upfront about being a cover band, they aren't trying to "make it" in music. It's just giving people what they want. The people are happy, it's fun and the bars that hire them make money. I don't really see a down side.

Re: “Dolewite sells it on the weekend

I saw them a few years ago at the record bar for new years... one of the best performances i have ever seen. My wife, then my girlfriend, who listens to either indie or mellow music really enjoyed it. Seriously, give them a chance.

Re: “What's good and what sucks among recent local releases

At last a local music journalist who doesnt fawn all over local acts because he feels like he has to. There are local bands that actually suck live and put out shitty recordings.
