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

Wakarusa 2011: Café Con Leche’s take

9:12 pm by

W A K A

Remember Wakarusa, you guys?! No? Oh, my bad. It’s been almost three months since this year’s Wakarusa hit the Natural State and you still haven’t seen our photos. Let me correct that. But seriously, who stole Summer? It’s gone by so fast.

Wakarusa was fabulous this year. The line-up was great, and it made it really hard to catch everything on the must-see list. Next year, I’m taking my bike to get me from one stage to the next.

I knew I’d have a blast seeing Ben Harper & Relentless7, Mumford & Sons, Ozomatli, and Michael Franti & Spearhead; but I also came home with new favorites, like Mat McHugh of The Beautiful Girls, Here Come The Mummies, Kinetix, Ha Ha Tonka, Hugo, Grace Potter & The Nocturnals, and MarchFourth Marching Band.

Keep reading for photos and top fave sets from Waka 2011.
