    More a Legend Than a Band - The Flatlanders were a supergroup before anyone knew

    Did you ever see Dallas from a DC-9 at night? Or West Texas from the air-conditioned cushiness of your vehicle as it zips along Interstate 10, the surrounding plains so flat that you can make out the curvature of the earth, the terrain so lonely and...

    Grease-Punk Orgy - The Hootenanny revs up one more time

    Old people (anyone over 40, I mean) know that a hootenanny is what went down at the local coffeehouse during the folkie '60s. These days, that's called an "open-mic night." Hipper, indie rock-raised young'uns (that would be me and all who are graced...

    Mugs Away

    The Pattern Koo's Art Cafe Friday, May 11 The past is collapsing in on itself, you know. The kids are strip-mining the graveyard of rock & roll, and the freshest corpses yet belong to the long-haired rebel rockers of 1968--and hence, the Pattern...

    Heavy! - Farside dont float away on a frat boys burps

    There's a pendulum in rock music that swings between the sacred and the profane, between earnest, political rock almost crushed beneath its own seriousness and mindless party anthems that could float away on a frat boy's burps. And for a long time, ...

    Joan of Dark - Joan Jett can do whatever she wants

    Nobody thought Joan Jett would make it in a Broadway musical. But then, nobody thought Joan Jett would make it anywhere. When she told everyone as a kid that she was going to be a famous rock star one day, they all said, "Yeah, sure." When she took ...

    Oy! - Picking on the Doheny Blues Fest headliners

    It displeases me to report that this year's DOHENY BLUES FESTIVAL--Saturday and Sunday at Doheny State Beach in Dana Point--is a relatively weak and predictable affair following a couple of years of glorious and surprising lineups. Among the treats ...

    Jazz Porn - Joey DeFrancesco slides his big organ inside you

    Beyond Fats Waller's earliest experiments, the organ would seem too brash for emotionally cool post-bop jazz. But Jimmy Smith blew such notions off the map in the mid-'50s with his still-startling work on the Hammond; he remains to this day--and pro...

    The King of Rock - There is none higher

    If you read my essay on the Weekly Arts page in last week's issue, then you know I have grown weary of contemporary jazz and all its pretensions/ limitations/stalemations (and, yeah, I just made that word up, but it's a good one). However, one guy w...

    Club of a Thousand Dances - Choosing between metal and merengue at JC Fandango
