TALLEST MAN ON EARTH

Psst!  That’s not his real name…and he’s not even all that tall, but “Tallest Man On Earth” sure looks great on a concert poster!  Musicians love to get creative with their stage names, and there are a TON of great ones out there.  How many can you think of? Post your list in the comments and we’ll pick one lucky contestant to be added to the guest list for the show!

Matsson’s melodies are remarkably pliant, and while it’s understandable to be skeptical of another skinny dude with a mustache, a guitar, and a worn-out copy of The Anthology of American Folk Music, the more time you invest in Shallow Grave, the more you’ll realize how unusually memorable it is. Ultimately, Shallow Grave transcends comparison– which is saying an awful lot, given the popularity of its prototype– and Matsson is a natural-born folksinger, earnest, clever, and comforting.

Good Old War

There’s a line in Good Old War’s ‘We’ve Come A Long Way” that goes “I thought I’d learn to behave, but I don’t feel I’m acting my age.”  Is that supposed to be a bad thing?!  For those of you who refuse to grow up, let us know how you manage to stay young at heart.  Your response might just land you and a friend a spot on the guest list for the show!
