Akron/Family @ Backbooth, Orlando, Fl 1/12

Every closed door is an opening for another…or something. Last week I tried to get an interview with Dinosaur Jr. but that didn’t work out. What did work out was their press guy’s offer: cover Akron/Family in Orlando instead. So I did and threw together a few words for the Dropp (along with photos by new addition Chris Ward.)

Interview with Evan Patterson of Young Widows

Way back in April I had a chance to interview Evan Patterson, leader of the post-hardcore band Young Widows. I had no idea who they were and my only frame of reference for the band was the awesome label it’s on, Temporary Residence (Pinback, Explosions in the Sky, Eluvium, etc). So I did my “research” and checked out a few of their albums and read a few other interviews.

Radiohead Kicking of 2012 U.S. Tour in Florida

Radiohead will kick off their 2012 U.S. tour in Florida – Miami to be exact. Why Florida first? Heck, why the South first? Who cares (besides those living in major U.S. cities further north such as Philadelphia or Chicago or New York City). All that matters is that Florida gets to experience the fidgeting-spacey-electronic-rock madness that is Radiohead. Of course, as with their other tours, tickets will most likely be gone in less than a minute. Hopefully, the fact that the Florida dates are at big arenas will extend the window by a half minute. Either way, don’t buy a ticket until I get mine. You hear me!?
