Re: “Hospital Ships are on the move — literally and figuratively

Great interview. Jordan's a great guy. I wish HS all the success they can handle.

Re: “Nineties KC-Lawrence club fixture DJ Ray Velasquez returns home for a few shows

Maybe he and Robert Moore can have a turntable duel.

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?

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

@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: “A sonic boom from Salina: the LP

Very cool article. I wish I had the funds to have something pressed here. Perhaps a kickstarter deal, or a winning lottery ticket would help, haha.
Seriously though, I will keep them in mind, see what it takes, and hopefully find a way to make it happen someday :)
Would be way more worth it than a batch of compact discs.
As a fellow fan of good vinyl, this is a great article. Sounds like some very good folks doing something really great.

Re: “Mike Doughty's Soul Coughing demons still haunt him

Now a year later, Mike is re-recording Soul Coughing tunes in a crowd-funding campaign...
http://www.artistdirect.com/entertainment-…
...and received 118% of the desired pledge amount in less than 24 hours!
Nice to see him reconnecting with his past instead of repudiating it. Maybe he can start healing instead of hurting - and make some money!

(It sure will be interesting to see what the writer credits look like.)

Re: “A sonic boom from Salina: the LP

KC's own Hearts of Darkness pressed their second album "Shelf Life" on 200g vinyl from Quality Record Pressing last year. Gary Salstrom did the plating. Copies are available at Zebedees and Vinyl Renaissance.
