Check it out: Swear and Shake, “These White Walls”

5:06 pm by

Yo! It’s been a while, but I wanted to share this here with you guys. Last week I went to a G. Love & Special Sauce show at George’s here in Fayetteville. I was running late and was only able to catch the last song of the opening band, Swear And Shake. It was awesome. I totally regretted not getting there to catch their whole set.

Shout out to G. Love, who usually has really great new bands opening for him on the road. Last year he introduced me to The Belle Brigade.

Well, check them out. These guys and gal are pretty awesome:

Jimmy Fallon, Mariah Carey & The Roots: “All I Want For Christmas Is You”

8:12 am by

I’m guilty of being a Christmas music hater. Apart from the sound of Love Actually, I can’t stand any other holiday melodies. Having said that, when a friend of mine shared this video on facebook yesterday I didn’t look at it. But at night, I saw several of my friends had shared it. So I clicked. SWOON. What a fun version of the song! Check it out. Who can hate on Questlove using a wooden clacker with an afro pick or Mark Kelly with a toy xylophone?!

The Giving Tree Band @ George’s Majestic Lounge

The Giving Tree Band @ George's Majestic

This is a late post, but I promise you it’s worth the wait. At the end of April, one of my favorite Bluegrass/Americana band made a stop in Fayetteville, AR at George’s Majestic Lounge. It had been close to two years since I first experienced The Giving Tree Band live. It had been way too long.

They opened for Dirtfoot at George’s the night of April 27th. There was a small crowd, but the set was still so magical. Their charisma on stage was what drew me in on the first place, and an album and a few new band members later, I can tell you they just keep getting better. I got a bunch of photos for your entertainment. There’s also a video of their new single and more info on their upcoming projects, so continue reading after the jump
