THE ITALIAN JOB

posted November 8th, 2011

Fresh off multiple hometown shows celebrating the September release of her newest batch of jams, Disturbing The Air, AZITA's set to ditch Chicago for a little southern comfort - of the Italian variety! Yes, taking care of business is what AZITA does best (piano and LPs in tote), but rarely does she get to do it in other towns, let alone other hemispheres. Disturbing The Air is a slow burning pop record replete with choice experimentation; but fear not, amici, AZITA's... (read more)

FALL BACK 200 YEARS

posted November 7th, 2011

Time's changed, brother, so Drag City's turned its clock back accordingly. Of course, in doing so we've only come to realize the dark days of winter are truly creeping up the ol' behind, a deep freeze near the back door. Alas, 200 Years provides an antidote to conquer (or enhance, given your preference) these early grey days both aurally and visually! 200 Years officially grace each-and-every-one of us with their debut, self-titled album tomorrow, November 8. In celebration, they've delivered a cake-like present in... (read more)

LIKE THE PLAGUE

posted November 2nd, 2011

Ah, sweet, sweet Bill Callahan. If at first you don't succeed... try, try again, non? Yes, our Apocalyptic troubadour may have returned home from his springtime trip to Europe having convinced all that saw him of his masterful performance skills, but was anyone convinced of their impending doom? Not likely. Undeterred, Bill has fasted and will spend this week polishing his soapbox and re-stringing his guitar before embarking on a second run through the olde worlde with strengthened rhetoric. A consistent touring schedule and... (read more)

NEW CAVE VID! NEVERENDLESS TOUR CONTINUES!

posted November 1st, 2011

NEVERENDLESS flames on and on - and not by definition, either! CAVE continues to run olympic-style across this green Earth with a blazing torch, racing for victory and the light of spirit, knowledge, and life. Heavy shit, doode! Well, heavy music at least. Heavy, but lean, too - no fat, no flab, just a muscular slab replete with sinewy hypnotics of the rhythmic and sonic varieties. This tour is a massive continuation of the tour that's already been underway all fall, seemingly NEVERENDLESSly. Anyway,... (read more)

FROM THE JUNGLE COME BLACK BANANAS

posted October 25th, 2011

Shit, Drag City's finally up and running in its new digs, and what'd we find creeping out from our kitchen? Nothing but BLACK BANANAS! No, not your rotting, starchy, potassium-filled fruit - Black Bananas is Jennifer Herrema & Co.'s new band, excavated from molted peel of RTX. Why the name-change? Well, who other than Jennifer is the queen of Banana songs? And after three albums under the name RTX, Herrema and her bunch- Mckinley, Midness, Welch, and... (read more)

posted October 7th, 2011

Young Man Blues

posted October 6th, 2011

Neil Young and his wife Pegi have sent us this message, to add their voices to the chorus of all who were touched by Bert Jansch over the years:

"With deep regret Pegi and I acknowledge the passing of Bert Jansch. Pegi and I were lucky to play with him on all of our shows for the last couple of years. He is a hero of mine, one of my greatest influences. Bert was one of the all time great acoustic guitarists and singer songwriters.... (read more)
