SPEAKEASY TIGER @ MARQUIS THEATER | SAT, 4/27/13
Half a decade ago, Speakeasy Tiger seemed to be in the right place at the right time, with a kind of electro-rock that was equal parts Yeah Yeah Yeahs and the Gossip, only gone in a more pop direction. The group got its start as an expansion of origin ... More >>
There is a place somewhere in the pacific ocean that is essentially a cesspool for plastic waste and various other bits of debris and man-made trash. The rudimentary physics and science behind this collection is that all ocean currents from all over the world eventually whirlpool and cycle through t ... More >>
There's been quite a bit of movement in the local scene over the past month or so. We've caught wind of some personnel changes and a few new band to let you know about.

A couple quick notes about today's UMS lineup -- but first a post-script to the travelogues we've already posted from Jef Otte and Tom Murphy: Heard bits of Papa Bear from the sidewalk outside the Rover, and it was quite lovely. Very eager to hear more. Caught part of the debut set from the ... More >>
Remember the whole Speakeasy Tiger saga this past May, when the act parted ways with Kyle Simmons? What are we saying? Of course you remember. You're still commenting on that blog. Well, it not only did the outfit name a new lead singer, Katrina Stone (see photo after the jump), but they were road ... More >>
Well, that didn't last too long. Remember a few weeks ago, when we posted a video featuring the members of Speakeasy Tiger talking about how everything was fine in their camp, and that, despite rampant rumors, Kyle Simmons was still very much in the band? That, as th ... More >>

As those who've spent any amount of time on the road can attest, touring can be either exhilarating or exhausting. Like anything else, there's high points and low points. Most of the time, though, it falls somewhere in the middle. Days are spent in constant motion it seems on long, mundane drives ... More >>

It's been said that the mark of a truly great band is the ability to deliver the same caliber performance in front of virtually nobody as you would for a crowd of thousands. Gared O'Donnell from Planes Mistaken for Stars didn't just subscribe to this notion, he lived it. Emily Francis, who managed P ... More >>
