who the fuck is old crow medicine show. when i hear that band name i just immediately think "music a phd student living in cambridge listens to while they shop at whole foods and thinking about their next rock climbing get together with their other phd students"

thumbnail already tells me everything i need to know. it's bluegrass, isn't it

yeah but it's mainly that song, "wagon wheel" is almost like "free bird"

 

old crow medicine show was at shaky knees the year i went and i was there at first with some friends being like hm it might be nice to hear wagon wheel with some friends who i have listened to wagon wheel with before, but it just went on and on and i got tired of waiting around... i think i just went to go see ride instead or something, which ended up being really good, i had forgotten that i liked them!

I mentioned that I knew you to our mutual fb friend today and she told me "oh yeah he used to come over and play 'wagon wheel' a lot"

 

Is this the right thread

wtf where the fuck is this? what is labadee?
What is 'the iron maidens"?
I have never heard of anything on this line up. This is a joke right?

 

Edit: nevermind I've heard of Queensrÿche. Just nothing good.

well there's the la guns, the precursor to guns n roses

and lita ford, who can forget that hair

One of our artists,  SM,  wants to call his new album "LA Guns",
spelled exactly like the 80's glam metal band of the same name.
 
Do you see this as a problem?

Our initial reaction is that this is a manageable risk but Paralegal is going to look at an old case where Aerosmith got into a  fight over the same issue involving the PUMP title/ group name. Also these people do still have a registration of their mark in a  logo form for recordings and live music:
 
We want to look at that.

It looks like I'm gonna have to back off the la guns title. Might not be worth the headache . I said what about LAGunz(UK) and even that seems like it might get a letter.

I don't want anybody to get hurt.
I can just see the two factions healing their schism
and coming after you with both barrels blazin.
These headbangers are angry and vindictive. 
They've been looking for revenge since '92
and let's face it--
you weren't far from the scene of the crime.

lot of Good Stuff on here

 

How the hell did The National start to weazle their way on top the first couple lines?

Didn't know they were that big.. but then again, didn't really pay that much attention to them.

Nice to see Courtney Barnett get up there. But next to CAKE! I guess they have a good 6 massive singalong hits...

 

Had to google The voids to find out who they were. oh that voidz! great career move mate lol

ya gotta be happy being The Brian Jonestown Massacre. They are always a guaranteed a mid poster slot on these sorta things. they don't seem to gain new fans tho. ditto BRMC & The Black Angels.. although I do hear BA in tv shows when the scene needs that droney Velvet underground vibe.

 

Don't know anything after Andew W.K. newer rock bands? anygood?

lol yeah i saw brian jonestown massacre at atp ny but while they put on a spectacle they didn't really make me wanna listen to their records 

 

seen the black angels in what i think was their heyday as well as when they were exactly to my taste, at bonnaroo. more recently i put them on when i was driving my friend and her bf on a trip similar to the length of passover and he was like whoa this takes me back haven't heard it in years
