[Recommended + Free Download] Brandi Carlile, Sept. 18th, Barrymore Theatre

Brandi Carlile w/ Katie Herzig 8pm, Saturday, September 18 - SOLD OUT Barrymore Theatre, more info @ trueendeavorsblog.com Once in awhile you find a song that strikes you instantaneously and you know that you're hearing something special.  This is exactly what happened to me when I was introduced to Brandi Carlile’s single The Story.  It hit me like a wrecking ball.  Hear her powerhouse vocals for yourself in her single Dying Day, which perfectly epitomizes Brandi’s kick ass attitude and tender soul: Download "Dying Day" I thought to myself, this girl has raw talent, no question.  I’ve wanted to see her perform live ever since and luckily Carlile and her band will be appearing at the Barrymore Theater in Madison this Saturday night! The singer/songwriter is a native of Ravensdale, WA and like most Washingtonian musicians, she began her career by showcasing her songs at local Seattle hang outs.  Then in 2003 Carlile caught the attention of music heavyweights Dave Matthews Band which intensified her popularity.  She grabbed a record deal with Columbia Records and released her first self-titled album to general approval.   However, it was her second album The Story that skyrocketed her to star status and  garnered her acclaim from critics and fans alike.  Ever since, her work has been enjoying the praises of the musical community and has been featured in a number of prominent television shows and ads. To me, it’s not really a mystery what makes Carlile so special.  In a world of bubble gum and fake electronics, her music has a refreshingly natural sound.  It’s a mash up of a number of different basic backgrounds;  a little blues, a little folk, a little country all with a rock twist.  It’s sort of a mix of Ray Lamontagne and John Mayer with a dash of the Dixie Chicks.  It all works. The only thing to pair with such a unique sound is, of course, killer vocals which is undoubtedly Carlile’s best selling point.  No matter if it’s a sweet caress or a forcefull authority that will knock you sideways, it never fails to impress.  The girl can scale octaves back and forth without breaking a sweat and it gives her songs a unique quality. Feeling it?  Then make sure you check out the rest of Brandi’s latest album Give up the Ghost.  If you don’t want to miss an incredible event, be sure to hit up the Barrymore this weekend and see her live show (tickets are now sold out.) And don’t be surprised if you leave in total amazement. -Emily Cartwright

World's Worst iPod: Jump 'N The Saddle Band "The Curly Shuffle"
A silly novelty tune with a jump swing beat took the country by storm--at least parts of it--in early 1984. A Chicago band called Jump 'N The Saddle scored a #15 with the Curly Shuffle...and it seems a lot of people have some pretty awesome...

World's Worst iPod:The Human League "(Keep Feeling) Fascination
It was almost a clean-sweep this morning for the synthesizer heavy "(Keep Feeling) Fascination") by the Human League. Everybody was in the mood for a little 80s fun! It made it up to #8 on the charts in 1983, a couple of years after the British pop...

World's Worst iPod:Dr. Hook "When You're in Love With a Beautiful Woman"
Here's a song that inspired high-schoolers to act like 12-year-olds back in the late 1970's. The lyric "when you're in love with a beautiful woman, it's hard," was just so darn hilarious!! Dr. Hook had a lot of hits in the 70s, and...

Day 4: The Final Day of Bonnaroo

Day 3: Saturday

Day 2: Friday - Variety, the Spice of Life
Day 2 is upon us! Despite being up fairly late and not sleeping super well (first time camping...I'll get used to it I'm sure), I was hoping to sleep in just a little bit, but my body had other plans. It woke me up at 5:45am for the hell of it. I...
