Moby Grape was one of the most versatile San Francisco rock bands to emerge out of the summer of love.  While they were rooted in psychedelia, they injected elements of folk, blues and country. Unlike the jam bands of the time, Grape possessed a meticulously unique sound by way of

One of the endearing things about the Tacoma music scene is the longevity of the musicians and the love the town still has for them. The band that now sports the name of The Fucking Eagles is a prime example. Their live show reminds one of a '50s sock hop

"Only Lovers Left Alive" resurrects the good vampire movie

For the better part of the past decade, the prevailing image of the vampire in the public consciousness was a defanged, emo pantywaist who couldn't go out in the sun, not because it would burn him to ashes, but because it would make him sparkle. I thought my fervent prayers

Singer-Songwriter Brock Ginther explodes with restless ideas

Robert Pollard isn't just a hilarious drunk, he's also one of the most prolific recording artists in popular music.

Music Critics' Picks: Steel Cranes, The Fucking Eagles, Ex-Gods, LAKE

[POST PUNK] + FRI, MAY 16 Hailing from Oakland, Steel Cranes are a no-nonsense duo composed of Tracy Shapiro and Amanda Shuckle. Their brand of wiry, nervy post-punk recalls badasses such as PJ Harvey and Patti Smith. The assault of guitar and drums is dialed in to a degree that would

When I brought it up to Spud Goodman that his talk show has existed, in one way or another, for almost 30 years, he seemed genuinely shocked. In February of 1985, The Spud Goodman Show premiered on local public access television. "Gosh, I'm not joking, here, but nobody's ever said a
