Five From the Archive: Smashing Pumpkins in 2011

Rolling Stone recently ran a Readers’ Poll of The Best Smashing Pumpkins Songs, as selected by their readers. The response was so large and varied that they decided to make it a Top 20 list instead of the regular Top 10 with Rolling Stone Readers’ Polls. I had been planning on running a Five From the Archive piece … Continue reading Five From the Archive: Smashing Pumpkins in 2011

Five From the Archive: Grace Potter & The Nocturnals Play Songs From Their New Album

Grace Potter & The Nocturnals released a new record earlier this year, The Lion The Beast The Beat. I was a big fan of the first single, “Never Go Back” when it came out, and what I’ve heard of the new record is also great. Her songwriting continues to mature, and I swear I notice some … Continue reading Five From the Archive: Grace Potter & The Nocturnals Play Songs From Their New Album

Summer Camp Music Festival 2012: Musical Highlights

This was our first year at Summer Camp, and there were a bunch of bands I was excited to see. So my expectations were high. I got to see most of the bands on my list, and all that I did see were as good or better than I was expecting. But, Christ… the heat? … Continue reading Summer Camp Music Festival 2012: Musical Highlights

Five From the Archive: Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe Presents Sticky Fingers

I don’t remember exactly when it was, but sometime early in 2011, Karl Denson asked his Facebook fans a pressing question: What album should Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe (KDTU) perform in its entirety on its next tour? I remember I submitted a suggestion. I think it was Bill Wither‘s Just As I Am, but don’t quote … Continue reading Five From the Archive: Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe Presents Sticky Fingers

Five From the Archive: Alabama Shakes in 2012

While I was doing some research on Alabama Shakes, I came across their stuff on the Live Music Archive. What a surprise! They are a young band, and it was a brilliant decision to let people record them and upload those recordings to the Live Music Archive. Free marketing. Here’s a sampling of what you’ll … Continue reading Five From the Archive: Alabama Shakes in 2012

Summer Camp Music Festival: MP3 Sampler

This summer, we’re sending a GLONO crew to camp out and cover at least three music festivals. The first will be the 12th annual Summer Camp Music Festival, in Chillicothe, IL over Memorial Day Weekend (All Good and Hoxeyville are also on the list). The line up for Summer Camp is really exciting. Over 100 bands … Continue reading Summer Camp Music Festival: MP3 Sampler

Five From the Archive: Ween in 2011

We’ve covered Ween on Glorious Noise before, back when they played the Royal Oak Music Theater in 2010… 1. Ween – “Roses Are Free”. A great song in its own right, but also noteworthy as the Ween cover Phish rolls out pretty regularly. It’s from the classic 1994 album Chocolate and Cheese. Full show: April … Continue reading Five From the Archive: Ween in 2011

Five From the Archive: Warren Zevon in 1976

Well, it’s that time again. Time for another Five From the Archive post featuring the legendary Warren Zevon. We’ve looked at his work before, first a batch of songs from 1978, then a batch from his 2000 solo acoustic tour. This time around, we are looking at selections from 1976, the year his first record, … Continue reading Five From the Archive: Warren Zevon in 1976

Five From the Archive: Umphrey’s McGee in 2012

About two and a half years ago, we ran our first “Five From the Archive” piece. We called it “Top Five Covers by Umphrey’s McGee”, predating the official series name, since we only decided to make it a more regular item after we saw how much interest the Umphrey’s McGee covers generated. Since we’ll be … Continue reading Five From the Archive: Umphrey’s McGee in 2012

Five From the Archive: Greensky Bluegrass

Greensky Bluegrass is a local Michigan band done good. Coming out of Kalamazoo, they hit a soft spot for me right away, since that’s where I (and some other GLONO folks) went to college. And they have done a lot of shows at a place I know well: Bell’s Brewery. I was drinking their beer … Continue reading Five From the Archive: Greensky Bluegrass
