Let’s Get Lost

It's late in the day; the sun barely blinks over the horizon. The familiar bleached light bounces off the pavement and through the dirty windshield while white stripes flicker below like a busy signal on the highway. The man behind the wheel is lost. That man is Pete Yorn, his trademark Prince Valiant mane tossing in the wind blowing through an open window. He wears the same T-shirt and jeans he...

Large and Live

Colorado-based two-piece Big Gigantic plays a bombastic mixture of jazz rhythms and electronic dance beats. Featuring saxophonist/producer Dominic Lalli and drummer Jeremy Salken, Big G’s music was made for dancing and the duo have been ably ripping up clubs from coast to coast. They made a big wave on the festival circuit last summer, including much-talked-about sets at both Rothbury and...

World of ‘Wonder’

The title came first for the latest Plain White T’s album, The Wonders of the Younger. T’s songwriter and singer Tom Higgenson had just watched Cirque du Soleil’s “O” in Las Vegas when the phrase popped into his head.

Sticks and ’Bones

Before you start questioning the source of the band name here, I offer one word to clarify: Trombone. The brass family instrument is usually found in Big Band Jazz, Dixieland Jazz, Ska and occasionally in other genres as a token or backing sound.
