Show Review: Lucero at the Handlebar 3/20/14

Written by on 2014/03/26 in Show Reviews with 0 Comments

“I heard that when we wake up tomorrow, it will be Friday.”  This was not only an accurate statement by Lucero bassist, John C. Stubblefield, but it was kind of the summation of the sentiment in the room at the Handlebar last Thursday night.  There was this feeling that something awesome was happening and we should […]

Last week, The Fighting Jamesons opened for Lucero at Greenville’s Handlebar.  I pulled frontman Michael Powers off to the side for a short 5 minute conversation on the band, opening for Lucero, and what it’s like being an ‘Irish Band’ post March 17. “First and foremost, it’s an honor to open for Lucero.  We flew […]

This time last year, I awoke from a nap, stumbled down from my hotel room and found myself smack in the middle of Memphis trying to acquire some grub. I ended up with a rib meat sandwich (pretty sure that’s its government name) from Johnny G’s and a happy little walk around burning off calories listening to […]

What up, what up, what up?! I hope you all have had a smashing week. It’s #famouslyhot across the state right now and I am practicing the fratto of “Sky’s out, Thighs out” until the sun decides to go back and hide underground with Punxsutawney Phil or whatever that’s about. Thinking about good weather and […]

What’s up chickens?  I know you’re all a buzz hoping that the cute guy/girl in class puts a cool Michael Jordan valentine card in that brown paper sack you decorated, but some of us have better things to do.

Elwood Kuddles is my twitter friend and considering that I only have 473 of those, that makes him pretty special.  Additionally, Kuddles has expanded his role in the world outside of the twittersphere to include forming the 3 piece folky punk band Killing Kuddles.  Killing Kuddles, of Atlanta, Georgia, recently joined Autumn + Colour and […]

“We’re here.  Gray Pathfinder.  See you soon,” said the text I received from Eric Delgado of Lakelands based band, Bless Yer Heart.  I was set to meet and interview the band at a remote lake house in Waterloo, South Carolina and I had no idea how to get there.  Eric and lead singer Brad Dixon […]

Sometimes I feel like I’m the only person who cares about South Carolina’s finest treasure, DMX.  One time, at Prom at my high school, a DMX CD got stuck in the changer and we had to listen to “Party Up” on repeat for a good portion of the evening.  I danced the entire time and […]

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gvqsr-Qs_F8 Cassie Posey of Signs of Iris is a cool ass chick.  She has pink ombre hair and I want to be her bestie.  None of this has any bearing or relevance on the matter at hand, I just needed to get that off my chest before I proceed.  What we are here to discuss […]

Do you remember Halloween Specials on family sitcoms when you were younger?  My favorite was always Growing Pains.  One time they had one where the urban legend of the girl ghost on the side of the road situation REALLY happened to Mike.  Oh man, that was the best.  If you were born after 1992, you […]

My brain is on one thing only right now: TheWeeksTheWeeksTheWeeksTheWeeksTheWeeksTheWeeksTheWeeksTheWeeksTheWeeksTheWeeksTheWeeksTheWeeksTheWeeksTheWeeksTheWeeksTheWeeksTheWeeksTheWeeks.  When I found out that I would not be able to make their Saturday show at Fall for Greenville, I might’ve cried and done some shameful snapchatting to feel better, BUT HUZZAH!

Since last we spoke I’ve begun playing adult kickball, I refreshed my Twitter bio, and someone broke the Guinness world record for twerking without me.  Things are pretty exciting in these times we’re a-livin’ in, yanawmean? It might be better if I lived in Tuscaloosa and could cash in on that free waffle jazz, or […]
