[Concert Review] The Weepies, High Noon Saloon, Oct. 28th

The Weepies The High Noon Saloon, Oct 28th, special thanks to trueendeavors.com The Weepies are back and better than ever! While on their latest tour, they stopped by the High Noon Saloon and played for a sold out crowd.  I have never seen the High Noon this packed and it was an enjoyable experience. Although the crowd was large and the High Noon is a pretty big place, the show felt amazingly intimate.  Everyone was laid back and loving the mellow feel of the show.  The stage was set like someone’s living room with subtle lights and candles lit everywhere.    The band’s personal life definitely comes through with their performance.  The happily married couple has great chemistry on stage and they only enhance each other's talent.  Steve and Deb have that quirky indie vibe that just emanates from them and you can’t help but be totally fascinated.  They are exactly what you would think Juno and Pauly Bleeker would grow up to be.  The two frequently sing simultaneously and their combined efforts make for haunting melodies.  Even more so in person I think.  I was happy to hear my very favorite song  World Spins Madly On which was done perfectly.  I also was impressed by their show closer This Is Not A Lullaby.  That tune is off their new album Be My Thrill and while I wouldn’t say it’s my favorite from the record, I was overwhelmed by the extra emotion and passion Deb seemed to put into it.  The Weepies played Little Bird for their encore, a song I had never heard before but immediately took to.  I found it an incredibly written song both musically and lyrically and immediately went home to find it.      The only objection I can give about the performance was its length.  They played a great show but a little short.  I heard many people in the crowd express the same feeling and wishing they would have stayed on a little longer, even after the one song encore.

U2 Unplugged
Rolling Stone Magazine got U2 to perform their new song "The Miracle (of Joey Ramone)" acoustically--and it's pretty great! Maybe we should invite them to come in and play for us in Studio M!
World's Worst iPod: LeBlanc & Carr "Falling"
LeBlanc and Carr were Lenny LeBlanc and Pete Carr, two Muscle Shoals studio musicians who hit the top 40 in 1978 with their hit "Falling." It made it up to #13 on the charts and was perfect for clumsy teenage slow dancing! Musically, these guys were...

Kitty's night in a haunted house
Before Friday, my only experience with a haunted house, commercial or otherwise, was at the Recreation Department in Stevens Point when I was a teenager, and as I remember I was FREAKED out. So I was a little nervous when Jonathan and I were asked to...

World's Worst iPod: El DeBarge "Who's Johnny"
A lot of people seemed to have fond memories of this questionable song from 1986. "Who's Johnny" was the first solo hit for the guy named El DeBarge, and it went to number 3 on the charts. Some of you might remember it from the movie "Short...

Finally, recognition of Stevie Ray Vaughan by the Rock Hall
The new list of nomines for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is out, and finally they give a nod to Stevie Ray Vaughan. The Rock Hall has passed Stevie by for the more than ten years that he's been eligible, causing me and other blues fans much...

You might want to see "Once" twice
I had the opportunity to go see "Once" at Overture Hall last night, and I guess the two word summary of my review could be "weirdly awesome." The story isn't too complicated, which is good because I sometimes had a hard time understanding the...

World's Worst iPod: Stonebolt "I Will Still Love You"
It seems Kitty was all alone in the Canadian wilderness with her love for the 1978 hit "I Will Still Love You" by Stonebolt. It only made it up to #29, so it seems a lot of folks didn't have the fond memories of the song that she did. With amazing...

World's Worst iPod: Neil Diamond "Yesterday's Songs"
Even Neil Diamond fans didn't seem to want to throw their support behind this one. "Yesterday's Songs" with its cheesy backup singers may be the most cliche song the guy does! It made it up to #11 on the charts in 1981/82 and was #1 on the...
