The Jayhawks @ The Barrymore 2/16/12

The Jayhawks, who's most recent album Mockingbird Time was released in September, will be making their way to Madison later this week. The Minneapolis natives began making music in 1985 with the original members Mark Olson, Gary Louris, Marc Perlman, and Norm Rogers. In 1992, after multiple line-up changes, The Jayhawks released their first major label album Hollywood Town Hall. The album reached #11 on Billboard's Heat Seakers chart, powered by the single "Waiting for the Sun", which rose to #20 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock chart. The band continued to tour and record while adding and losing members, until 2005 when they went on hiatus. The Jayhawks' members continued to make music with various side and solo projects and in 2008, reunited for a concert in Spain. This eventually led to a report in 2009 that they had decided to reunite. In 2010, they entered the recording studio and finally in September 2011,  the long awaited Mockingbird Time was released.

The Jayhawks will be bringing their alt-country rock styling to the Barrymore Theater this Thursday, Feb. 16. Line-up will include original members Mark Olson, Marc Perlman, and Gary Louris as well as Karen Grotberg and Tim O'Reagan. Tickets are $32 in advance and the show begins at 7:30pm. Special guest Kaiser Cartel will also be performing.

Mayflies: faschinating, or horrifying? You decide.
The mayflies were out in full force over the past couple days. Now I've heard about these insects over the years, but have never experienced a mayfly swarm. I think I'm pretty happy about that. Apparently the mayflies were so thick they...

Free downloads: The Bayonets
If you were listening to Triple M on the morning of Thursday July 17th, you may have thought somehow we slipped back to 1965. But it wasn't an old song we were playing--it was a brand new one from the Los Angeles band the Bayonets, called "Crash...

World's Worst iPod: Information Society "What's On Your Mind (Pure Energy)"
There's something about the allure of Star Trek that made this song by Information Society extra special. It went all the way to #9 on the charts in 1988 for the band based in St. Paul, Minnesota. According to wikipedia, the band got the...

It's not *that* kind of pool party! ~ Stevi
Pool party's are the best! ...Until someone decides to drive a vehicle in for a swim. Someone should have told her Jeeps don't make good pool toys, and aren't boyant. Check it out, it'll make you feel better about that time you walked out...

World's Worst iPod: Alice Cooper "You and Me"
Can a song be so horrible that it's actually awesome? Well, if that is possible, here is an example: Alice Cooper's emotional ballad "You and Me" from 1977. I'm not sure we could think up a more hideous lyric than "we shared a bed, some...
