Music to Your Ears

By Laura Marrich

The Kids are All Right--An article in last week's Journal confirmed that the city is purchasing the Ice House building for use as an all-ages, teen-run music center, similar to Warehouse 21 in Santa Fe. The 30,000-square-foot space sits at 506 First Street NW. It's within spitting distance of the Cell Theatre, Wool Warehouse and MLK/Roma bridge, making it an ideal hub for all-ages music events in the Downtown area.

Tony Gilkyson

Show Up!

Tony Gilkyson

with The Shine Cherries and The Inner Parlor

By Captain America

It's no easy task to follow Billy Zoom (original guitarist for the premier Los Angeles punk band X), but that’s just what Tony Gilkyson did from 1987 to 1996. His outstanding work was always on the twangier numbers (read: the John Doe material) so it’s no surprise that his solo work is deep country, whether a gentle prairie breeze or barreling down a prairie highway.

Sleep Till North

Musical insanity with method to its madness

By Simon McCormack

It’s not that prog-rock outfit Sleep Till North doesn’t have a plan. It’s that deviating from that plan is a necessity for each of the band’s four members.

Sonic Reducer

Oscar Castro-Neves All One · Gonzalo Rubalcaba Solo · Ben Allison Cowboy Justice

By Mel Minter

All One, the latest from Brazilian guitarist/arranger/composer Oscar Castro-Neves, includes a “grooming” credit, and OCN sure looks good. Nor is there a hair out of place in the 14 tracks that take us on a musical tour of OCN’s diverse influences—from the predictable Jobim to Chopin and Monk. His bossa-inflected guitar conjures a good-natured vibe and adds a pop sheen over a tight, jazzy ensemble, with stellar performances from violinist Charlie Bisharat and guest vocalist Luciana Souza. Overall, however, the music feels overcareful and lightweight, though the Chopin prelude and Jobim’s “Double Rainbow” are exceptionally rendered.

Looney for Rooney

Rooney • indie • Run River North • folk rock

By Adam Wood
There is a striking absence of good rock music on the airwaves today. We have passed the glory days when kids and adults alike bonded over a couple of guitars and a drumset, as new heads try their hand at the more accessible sounds of electronic music and rap. There are those of us, however, who have not forgotten the thrill of playing air guitar and belting along to your favorite song. In his efforts to re-access this primal energy, Robert Schwartzman—the mastermind behind the once-upon-a-time inescapable worm of a tune “Where Did Your Heart Go Missing”—has re-formed his band Rooney. Armed with the upbeat verve of power pop and teeming with inspiration from British Invasion rock, Rooney will be bringing their revival efforts to Launchpad this Tuesday, Aug. 1. The opening performance at this 13+ show will be provided by the somehow simultaneously buoyant and melancholy indie jams of Run River North. The cost to share in the spirit and enthusiasm of revitalized musicians will be a mere $17, so don’t miss out!
