We want YOUR blog!

So if you have a blog and would like for our blog to link to your blog, let us know, and we'll forge some kind of crazy blog community. Yep. Blog.

March has been a fine month for concerts in Atlanta. Beth Orton was the first one, and she was just as good, if not better, than usual. Ray Davies was next. He played most of the new solo album (his first!)and threw in plenty of Kinks classics, though, sadly, no "Waterloo Sunset."
Next show was the very charming Jenny Lewis, about whom I knew little, having only heard one Rilo Kiley album. I'll fix that omission immediately.
Later the same night, the Whigs played at Smith's. Powerful three-piece from Athens, Ga., with great vocals and melodies and no-nonsense rock. The sheer number of attractive women at the show was very distracting, alas. I emerged from the venue smelling like an old ashtray due to the alarming amount of cigarette smoke in the air. The sooner all these places switch to a strict no-smoking policy, the better for everyone.

I also saw some great shows in March! [url=]
Like CX-1[/url] opening for the Drew Emmit Band (featuring Mark van Allen on pedal steel -- so sweet and perfectly enhancing!) at Smith's.

Then [url=]Larry Keel and Natural Bridge[/url] at the Red Light Cafe. Larry and Jenny Keel & co. have been playing the Red Light for years, and they played to a full house of appreciative fans and friends. Authentic acoustic virtuosity at its finest!

Caught the tail end of a fun dunch set by Asheville's[url=]Mad Tea Party[/url] at the Earl one fine Sunday. My 18 month old daughter is a huge fan of their uplifting hokum (as am I), but the Earl is not kid-friendly, so here's hoping they play someplace else next time. Graveyard in EAV?

Then, whoa: at the last minute, I was treated by a friend to an early birthday present. I went to the second (demand-added) midnight show of Prince featuring Tamar at the Tabernacle. I'm still not over it... what a high! And the fulfillment of a lifetime wish to see Prince in concert (Mom wouldn't let me go to the Purple Rain tour). I can't believe I got to see him at such a cool, small venue. His guitar playing was incredible (mostly on Telecaster, my personal favorite), and Tamar was excellent -- very old-school-Tina-meets-Aretha-meets... well, Prince! Beautiful light show and plenty of funk theatrics, too. Wow.

Warren & Decatur CD, thank you for being. I'm really enjoying the Elbow and Judee Sill re-issues I picked up last time I was in. And the Wood Brothers! Whose show I ended up missing because of Prince. Damn. But, yaknow. Prince!
