Tori Amos at 50
May I be frank? Tori Amos said my name out loud at least thrice during this interview, and hearing that from my feminist fairy godmother made me want to vomit rainbows all day long. Preceding Wednesday’s show at the Long Center, the two of us talked about turning 50, feminism, and the music industry. Somehow I survived without openly weeping.

Wheezing Spools: Cassettes in Electronic Music – Part II
Cassettes occupy a reclusive distance from the whims of the masses. Since tapes aren’t enslaved by prescribed pop expectations, a history of idiosyncratically edgy music endures. The following music is separated from the popularity contest vomiting forth from dogmatic dance formulae layered amid the babble of social media.

Bob Log III Q&A
Bob Log III’s best gimmick isn’t his flamboyant getup of sequenced jumpsuits and telephone helmets. Nor is it his extreme showmanship of rafting over the audience in a rubber dinghy and enlisting the breasts of female fans to make “Boob scotch.” Rather, it remains his lightening fast, highly percussive, slide guitar fingerpicking.

Sacred & Profane: Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds
Shaking the ACL Live at the Moody Theater temple Saturday and Sunday, three-and-a-half hours and 31 gut shots all total, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds alternately caressed and flayed its flock. At the former main event, a sold-out concert prior to the band’s Austin City Limits taping, Cave reached down and rubbed both ears of a man in the front row.

Johnny Winter (1944-2014)
Baby bands take note: You don’t want a feature about your act in the Chronicle. Used to be bands simply broke up after landing on our cover (looking at you Ed Hall, playing this Saturday at the North Door). Now, the curse is worse. Two weeks to the day after our Johnny Winter story comes the news that the Beaumont blues great died in Zurich yesterday.

Wheezing Spools: Cassettes in Electronic Music - Part I
How does a puny plastic cuboid subject to decay and fluttering live up to a stylus on a bible black plane traveling 45 revolutions per minute? No tape revival or aging critic (ahem) with a cassette label can circumvent a doomed format that whorls and whines in a comic fugue.

Danzig at Housecore Horror
The Housecore Horror Film Festival remains a place for evil and unique fusions, so it makes perfect sense that the master of horror metal, Glenn Danzig, and metal’s favorite comedian, Brian Posehn, have both been added to the Oct. 23-26 lineup.
