New Bishop Allen album coming...

Bishop Allen

Bishop Allen's The Broken String, as well as their show at the Grog Shop made them one of my favorite bands of 2007. It's very exciting to see a new album is in theworks, but unfortunately they're not coming to NEOhio (yet)...

As Brooklyn pop combo Bishop Allen happily report in their latest e-newsletter, they're almost done with their new disc and follow-up to last year's Bishop Allen & the Broken String. They've tentatively titled the thing Grrr..., and are looking to release it in mid-February on Dead Oceans.


Amy Ray at the Grog Shop tomorrow

amyray.jpgI will be seeing Amy Ray tomorrow night! My cousins are coming into town and it should be a great night out. I can't believe it's been just over 3 years since I've seen her (Amy Ray, not my cousin).

Here's a recent article:

The Cleveland Free Times :: Music :: Soundcheck :: Amy Ray
Amy RaySinger-songwriterBy Jeff NieselAs half of the folk duo the Indigo Girls, singer-guitarist Amy Ray has pretty much done and seen everything a pop star can imagine. She was on a major label for a good chunk of her career and had a couple of hits that charted. So perhaps that's what fuels her punk-inspired solo career, which took yet another turn with the release of the new, garage-soul CD, Didn't It Feel Kinder, out on the indie Daemon Records label that she runs. Calling via phone from an Omaha tour stop, Ray talked about her new disc and the writing approach she took this time around.

If you haven't had a chance to check out the new album, do so.

Photo by Janet Macoska.At first it seemed like any other Wednesday night at Luxe, the trendy anchor of Detroit Shoreway’s restoration efforts. Guests, who included local political leaders, such as Peter Lawson Jones; artists, like local singer Robin Stone; and movers and shakers in Cleveland’s nonprofit elite were sipping housemade wines, chatting about current issues and raving about the rich goat cheese and caramelized onion pizza.
