Sound Tribe Sector 9 will be here in Madison on March 12. (Got your tickets yet?) They’ve most commonly been described as an “electronic jam band”– a genre that might need a bit more explanation.  Thankfully PopMatters.com took the time to elaborate on the band’s sound.

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…

Check out the Isthmus interview with tonight’s True Endeavors performer Rhett Miller:

“Isthmus spoke with Miller, appearing Saturday at the Majestic Theatre, about his forthcoming solo album, his inner cowboy and why he might be confused with a silent-movie bandit who ties damsels to railroad tracks..”
