The Parov Stelar tour movie

The Parov Stelar tour movie

I know Parov Stelar doesn’t really “fit the profile” or whatever, but his/their music is different and great, and I just know many fans of trippy electronica swing that way (pun intended) when they want something upbeat. And fuck “profiles” anyway! This tour documentary looks really fun, and it’s free from Parov Stelar website.

Yuna live @ Flavorpill HQ in NYC

Haven’t done this in a while and isn’t this the best occasion to return to posting live performances – Yuna doing a live set + interview at Flavorpill HQ in SoHo. Isn’t she freakin’ adorable? I somehow missed her show here in Chicago (she’ll be back for Lollapalooza, but I don’t really do outdoor events),...

Scarlet Monk, The Atomica Project @ Darkroom (Chicago) 01.13.2012

Well, what can I say. Things like this make me fall in love with trip-hop all over again. Just a couple of hours and a dozen songs in the middle of Chicago winter, and just like that – no more “whys” , no more “who even cares” and no more “I getting tired of this...

RJD2 @ Metro (Chicago) 12.03.2010

Between getting a ticket from a cop on my way to work, slicing my thumb open at work and my photographer not being able to make it the show I didn’t expect that day to end in any better way. I was childishly naive thinking that I would be able to find parking in Wrigleyville...

DJ Shadow @ Park West (Chicago) 11.19.2010

Yep, he was inside of a giant fuckin’ sphere! Park West was packed out. I’m not a big fan of the place with its yuppie booths, but if DJ Shadow is playing, I’m there, booths or not. The sphere was already on stage, evoking whispers along the lines of “is he gonna be in that...

DJ Shadow Live from the Shadowsphere – North American tour 2010

Usually, when I say that I like trip-hop or my blog is about trip-hop, the reaction is “What? What -hop? What is it?” Then I drop a couple of names and people go “Oh, yeah! I like him/her/them/it!” One of those names is always DJ Shadow. A list of epithets should follow, including “influential” and “legendary”, but...

Massive Attack @ Riviera Theatre (Chicago) 10.15.2010

And this is why they call themselves Massive Attack. Because they do attack. And they sure as hell are massive. By the end of this two-and-a-half-plus-hours-long show there wasn’t a single soul in the old building of the Riviera Theatre (or “the Riv”, how locals call it) that wasn’t captured and disarmed. As intense as...
