Wilco (The Photos & The Videos)

Wilco has played Madison on numerous occasions, but by most accounts the show Saturday night at the Overture Center was their best: the band played flawlessly, the stage lighting was incredible, the house packed-in to capacity, and the crowd was fired up!

Tuesday’s Live Concert Photos – They Might Be Giants

They Might Be Giants put on a Family Show at the Barrymore Theatre on Sunday evening that had everyone, young and old, dancing in the aisles. The sold out crowd ranged in age from less than 6 months to over 60 years old, and everyone seemed to have a great time. See more photos from the first few songs of the night after the jump…

Live Music Photo Tuesdays – Flight of the Conchords

Flight of the Conchords’ Rhymenoceros (Bret McKenzie) & Hiphopopotamus (Jemaine Clement) brought their music and comedy act to the Overture Center Sunday night. Fans were eagerly awaiting the show that sold out in roughly 30 minutes, and Bret and Jemaine did not disappoint. The songs come straight from their hit HBO show (Flight of the Conchords) and were very funny, but the duo’s ad-libbing between songs and interaction with the audience was probably my favorite part of the show. While people were shouting out requests during one of the several band/audience interactions, a rowdy fan made the ubiquitous request for “Freebird!!” and Bret and Jemaine paused for only a second before they broke into a hilarious version of the classic Lynyrd Skynyrd song.  
 
Here are some shots from the show (click the link below to see all the photos)…

Live Music Photos – The Long Weekend

Those of you that work the typical Monday through Friday schedule know that the long weekend is a rare treat. This past weekend was especially sweet with three great shows on Thursday, Friday and Saturday night. After not making it to a single show in January, I was ready for some great music, and I definitely got my fill.

 

012-long-weekend

 

It all started at the High Noon Saloon with Pieta Brown (accompanied by Bo Ramsey) opening for a semi-acoustic version of Cracker; David Lowery on acoustic guitar and Johnny Hickman on the electric. Friday night at the Majestic, the North Mississipi Allstars got the crowd moving with their blues-rock jams. The opening act was a rocking side project featuring members of the Allstars called Hill Country Revue which featured some crazy electric washboard from Allstars’s drummer, Cody Dickinson. The long weekend of shows ended with two great acoustic solo performances. Chicago’s Joe Pug opened for The Old 97’s Rhett Miller. Rhett worked the crowd, and himself, into a frenzy playing both solo and Old 97’s tunes.

 

 

Here are a few photos from each of these fine performances…

Photographing Fever Marlene

When Fever Marlene opened for Tapes N Tapes on August 15th at the Majestic Theatre, many people in attendance had no idea what to expect from this Milwaukee based duo. After a quick rockin’ sound check/prologue “All I want is my picture in a Magazine”, they had everyone’s attention. Scott Starr (Vocals, Guitar, Bass Synth…played using foot pedals) and Kevin Dunphy (Drums, Vocals) then pulled a reverse-encore, retiring backstage for several minutes before returning to play the rest of their high energy set. We might not be able to help them get their picture in a magazine, but we can post some here…
