Foreign Fields has just finished their second album and is trying out new tunes on a short Midwest tour that will bring them to the East Side Club in Madison on Thursday as part of the Sunset Music Series.
Brian Holl of Foreign Fields talked to us about the new album, his days slumming with Matt from PHOX and what the Nashville music scene has to offer. The East Side Club is a great space to enjoy some good music, beer and that primo lake view. Boom Forest and Dietrich Gosser will also join the fun. See you there!
Comedians Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, better known as Tim and Eric, are hitting the road to give us mortal souls a taste of their uncanny, bizarre personalities in person. If you're a fan of Tim & Eric's Billion Dollar Movie or the duo's series on Adult Swim, this will be a show you won't want to miss.
To make things even more insane, all-around goofball Dr. Steve Brule (aka John C. Reilly) will be tagging along with ungodly entertaining DJ Douggpound opening up. Tim & Eric take the art of comedy provocation to a whole new level straddling the fine line between ethereal and juvenile humor. The duo have definitely carved out their own path.
Some of the best songs we receive are from bands with no music industry connections at all, as evidenced by this recent message:
Hi Rick & Katie,
Johnny, Tommy, Joey & Dee Dee
They're all gone now. Tommy Ramone, original drummer of the archetypal punk band the Ramones, passed away on Saturday from cancer. The last of the surviving original members, Tommy (born Tamás Erdélyireal) played on the first three Ramones albums and went on to produce the Replacements and Red Kross while keeping a hand in production of subsequent Ramones records.
Peter Matthew Bauer and company
Peter Matthew Bauer, founding member of seminal New York band The Walkmen, is on tour in support of his debut solo album Liberation!. After 13 years with The Walkmen he's venturing out on his own and discovering new territory along the way.
