World of Winter

I recently met Jes Winter (officially) while working at Urban Outfitters. I'd seen a few photos, but heard many of her hauntingly beautiful songs. I had been exchanging e-mails with the driving force behind local favorite, the Jes Winter Band. She smiled and told me: “This is so funny, but it’s kind of magical. We were meant to meet.”

Warped Tour Memories

* Between torrential downpours Thursday, I caught two distinctly different live music events. The day started early at Westfair Amphitheater in Council Bluffs for the 2011 Vans Warped Tour.

Classic Rock: Guided By Voices Highlights MAHA Music Festival

by Tim McMahan

When the Guided By Voices reunion tour was announced in June 2010, Matador Records deemed the band's configuration "the Classic Lineup." Even the GBV logo was reworked in the same colors and font as Coca-Cola, another American classic.

It was the perfect moniker for a lineup that drove GBV's mid-'90s golden era -- frontman/singer/songwriter Robert Pollard, guitarist Mitch...
