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

The Weepies The High Noon Saloon, October 28th, 8pm, $18 in advance, $20 day of show, must be 18 years of age or older, more info at trueendeavors.com Who are The Weepies? The Weepies are an American band that could be described as indie-pop or folk-pop.  The two members, Steve Tannen and Deb Talan, both began their careers as solo sing-songwriters and met during one of Tannen's shows in Cambridge, Massachusetts.  The pair quickly discovered their musical chemistry and began playing together.  Soon after they realized that chemistry extended to more than just music and Steve and Deb were eventually married.  They now reside in California with their son.  The Weepies career has experienced a lot of success.  Their work has been featured in a list of TV shows including; Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill, Scrubs, The Riches, How I Met Your Mother, and Greek.  Not to mention a performance on Dirty Sexy Money.  They have also been a part of a JC Penny and Old Navy commercial, Sex and the City 2, and one of Barack Obama's presidential campaign ads.  There's no doubt this group has been busy. What do they sound like? The Weepies is one big give and take relationship.  Steve and Deb switch off lead and backing vocals while they match subtle acoustic guitar with caressing electric leads.  Their past albums have had more of a feeling of longing and a little bit of frustration.  This was no doubt due to the couple's attempts to get pregnant.  Their new album Be My Thrillwhich was released this past August is a whole different story.  This album is a bit more chipper with obvious contentment in their family life with their son.  Their tunes now have a sunnier but still gentle, wistful appeal.  I could compare them to a more upbeat Ray Lamontagne or William Fitzsimmons.  A lot of sweetness and sugary melodies. Want to sample The Weepies a little more?  Click here to stream their newly released album Be My Thrill in full! Best Tracks: World Spins Madly On Somebody Loved Why should you go see them? This will be the first time The Weepies have toured since 2006.  It will be great to see them back on the road and see how they've progressed during their baby break.  So tonight grab a date and head over to the High Noon Saloon to check them out tonight!

We still miss you Stevie Ray Vaughan
It's hard to believe it's been 24 years since we lost Stevie Ray Vaughan in that helicopter crash after a show at Alpine Valley. I've talked to lots of people who were at that concert, which also featured Eric Clapton, Buddy Guy, and...

World's Worst iPod: Exile "Kiss You All Over"
Kitty thought this song was an example of country disco and was not a fan...but just about everybody else was. "Kiss You All Over" was #1 for four weeks in 1978, and was probably one of the year's best songs. Exile rocks out with the...

The next Jonny Lang? Quinn Sullivan is the real deal
I was up in Wausau for the Big Bull Falls Blues Fest, and had a great time watching all the great live music. The big surprise of the day was the guy who played at 3pm. He's just 15 years old and is a good friend of Buddy Guy, and even got to play...

World's Worst iPod: Young MC "Bust a Move"
Kitty apppeared to be all alone on her dislike of this song, which made it to #7 on the charts in 1989. Rolling Stone described the song this way: "a G-rated funk-bomb integral to hip-hop's eventual mainstream acceptance." The...
