      Those that enjoy more traditional country music/singer songwriter stuff should check out The Next Waltz on Facebook tonight. See more...

        Bruce Robision started The Next Waltz last year. Tonight they are streaming an event from Steamboat Springs, CO. Guests include Robison, his wife Kelly Willis, Reckless Kelly, Dalton Domino & Jack Ingram.

        Started at 7:00 CST. Not sure how long it will run, or what the format is. They're all sitting around in a circle right now. Dalton Domino is playing first, but Kelly Willis is singing harmony. First song was a cover of Waylon's 'Wurlitzer Prize'.

        There are flashier performers out there...greater entertainers, but I honestly don't think there is a better, purer country voice than Kelly Willis'. It has that natural ache to it that can't be faked.

      Watching the Golden Globes and the energy level gap between Jeff Bridges and Harrison Ford is vast.

        Understatement of the year. I’m getting a little worried with how Bill Murray and Harrison looked/sounded. Friggin Carol Burnett didnt miss a beat and she’s got 10-15 years on em.

        It was interesting in that you had all of this guitar power rotating on stage, but then Joe Ely comes out and brings down the house with a solo performance of The Flatlanders' 'Borderless Love', which is a perfect song for the times. Power comes in various forms.

        Right on. In my book power is produced via total emotional commitment to the music. Sometimes it's bone shaking. Sometimes it's heart breaking. I just posted a good example of the latter over in What's Spinning.

        This was also my first time seeing Alejandro play with Don Antonio. They are an excellent pairing, and it is clear that Al loves those guys. That's one of my favorite things about him. He assembles killer bands to present whatever style music he is focused on in that moment. This one seems a bit more collaborative overall tho.

        So far we've heard a French language cover version of "Life On Mars" that totally worked, and a French language version of "Heroes" by Bowie himself that didn't really translate all that well.

        This was one of the more interesting surprise tracks he played last night. A reggae dub version of 'Ziggy Stardust'. Not better than the original by any stretch, but kind of cool in its own way. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U41FXp466Xc

      Blue Bell has a new limited time Mardi Gras King Cake ice cream flavor out now. So, 2019 has that going for it.

      Not sure that TV On The Radio's 'Wolf Like Me' works for a Star Trek game ad, but I sure love hearing it again whenever those spots run.

        Which reminds me, I have to get all my stuff in for cookie sales for my girl scout. What kills me is that you tend to take orders pre-Mardi Gras, but you don't get the orders until Lent when everyone has given up sweets.

        I usually cave to the scouts that set up camp outside the grocery stores, drugstores and local eateries. So I spend money inside the establishments, and then spend more outside the establishments. Honestly, I don't mind.

      I realize Mitski's "Be The Cowboy" is around 30 long, but, man, this thing flies by. I feel like I just put it on & I'm already on track 12.

      Kind of indifferent about the new Raconteurs tracks. I like 'Now That You're Gone' more than 'Sunday Driver', but neither stood out much.

        I remember watching that one when I was a kid and not knowing who Tom Waits was, but definitely thinking that he was a pretty good looking/sounding guy.

        PBS started airing it around this time of year annually due to the inclusion of 'Silent Night/Christmas Card From A Hooker In Minneapolis'. I actually caught a screening at the Alamo Drafthouse a few years back, which was kind of cool. The quality is far from HD, but the performance is so theatrical it worked well on the big screen.

        I remember seeing the Alamo Drafthouse's Master Pancake Theater (think Mystery Science Theater 3000 but live) version of "Pretty In Pink" many years back. Every time Andrew McCarthy did that creepy thing with his eyes we were supposed to take a drink and yell "Crazy Eyes".
