Hannah Thomas Launches Kickstarter

Hannah Thomas Described by Amy Ray of the Indigo Girls as having “the soul of old country [but a] die hard rocker with some punk thrown in the mix,” Georgia-based Hannah Thomas isn’t afraid to play around with genres. Having released her latest album over a year ago, Thomas has been busy traveling the country, playing shows, and writing new material— but in order to help that last one come to fruition, she’ll need your help. Thomas has launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund her latest album, and is seeking $10,500. Though the album title is still in the works, she hopes to record the album in late spring/early summer for a fall release. You can pledge here and watch her video below. You can also catch Thomas on tour this March and April across the U.S.  Continue reading ‘Hannah Thomas Launches Kickstarter’

Yellowcard Part Ways With Drummer

Yellowcard2After nearly 17 years, Longineu Parsons has decided to part ways with Yellowcard. The band announced their drummer’s departure on Thursday, saying, “It has been announced that long-time drummer Longineu ‘LP’ Parsons III has left YELLOWCARD. Longineu has decided to pursue other musical interests. We wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors.” A replacement has not been announced. Parsons’ exit leaves Sean Mackin as the sole original member. It is unclear what this means for the band’s upcoming tour dates, including their slot on this summer’s Warped Tour.

Beck Performs On ‘The Tonight Show’

beck_hansen_0100Right after his recent North American tour announcement, Beck took to the stage of Jimmy Fallon‘s Tonight Show to perform “Waking Light” and “Say Goodbye,” which appeared as an online exclusive. Both tracks come off Beck’s recent album, Morning Phase, which we’ve raved about in one way or another over the past few months. I wasn’t sure those haunting melodies would necessarily translate well live, but this performance speaks for itself. Catch Beck on tour this spring, and watch both videos below.  Continue reading ‘Beck Performs On ‘The Tonight Show’’

Keith Richards Writing Children’s Book

Keith RichardsI don’t know why I’m surprised. In this day and age, it seems musicians are doing just about everything, and as much as Keith Richards is probably one of the last people I’d peg to write a children’s book, it seems I’d be wrong. Billboard reports that Richards’ story, Gus & Me: The Story Of My Granddad and My First Guitar, details Richards’ own relationship with his grandfather, Gus Dupree. Illustrations will come from his daughter, Theodora Richards (ok, so that’s kind of sweet), and the book will be released this fall. Barnaby Harris and Bill Shapiro will assist in the writing, so I guess we don’t have to worry about any of that drug abuse and debauchery that appeared in his memoir, Life, popping up. Keep an eye out for Richards’ book, released on Little Brown Books For Young Readers this fall.

Tragedy At SXSW 2014

Credit: Matt Olsen / KVUE

Many of us have woken up to the terrible news out of Austin, TX that a driver fleeing a DUI stop at around 12:30 a.m. local time broke through the barriers near The Mowhawk, near Red River and 10th, and plowed into a crowd waiting outside the club for one of the many official showcases of the annual South By Southwest music festival and conference. At this time, two are confirmed dead with reportedly 23 injured.

Names of victims and the driver have not been released. Police say the driver continued down the street a bit after hitting the people outside The Mowhawk and at that point struck two people on a moped, who are reportedly the two fatalities. The driver attempted to flee on foot but was hit with a stun gun and apprehended by Austin police. He faces two counts of capital murder and 23 counts of aggravated assault with a motor vehicle.

It’s hard to believe this could have been worse, but anyone who has been to the festival in recent years has seen how completely packed the streets can be. Only minutes before the incident, police had cleared the waiting crowd from the street onto a sidewalk.

Our thoughts are with the victims and our hearts go out to the families of those injured and killed.
