Be Good Or Be Gone

Since the previous There Stands the Glass post seven days ago, I’ve taken in 30 sets of live music.  My ten favorites:
  • Four Fists
  • Sufjan Stevens
  • Ebony Tusks
  • Duncan Burnett and the Ministry
  • Jorge Arana Trio
  • Sleater-Kinney
  • The Phantastics
  • Sie Lieben Maschinen
  • Anna Cole and the Other Lovers
  • Peter Hook and the Light

I reviewed a concert by Sleater-Kinney and Theesatisfaction on Sunday.

I reviewed Ink’s Middle of the Map Fest on Friday and Saturday.

I reviewed Death Cab For Cutie’s concert at the Midland theater on Thursday.

I reviewed Sufjan Stevens’ concert at the Midland theater on Tuesday.

I contributed a Local Listen segment about La Guerre to KCUR.

Here’s a ten-minute documentary about the obscure Kansas City musician Michael Angelo.  His 1977 debut album will be reissued on April 28.

“Yoga” indicates that Janelle Monáe is intent on expanding her audience.

Live at Monterey Jazz Festival, the debut release of a band co-led by Dave Douglas and Joe Lovano, is every bit as impressive as you’d think.  RIYL: Dave Holland, present-day Wayne Shorter, Tim Berne.
