Selena Garcia At Paradise

Paradise hosted sultry songstress Selena Garcia this afternoon at 4:00 pm.  It’s a shame there weren’t more people packed into the venue because this girl is amazing!  As pop princesses go she may be the most down to earth, real girl—she even shared a story about how she got in a bar fight (it wasn’t […]

Selena Garcia Performing At Paradise

Paradise hosted sultry songstress Selena Garcia this afternoon at 4:00 pm.  It’s a shame there weren’t more people packed into the venue because this girl is amazing!  As pop princesses go she may be the most down to earth, real girl—she even shared a story about how she got in a bar fight (it wasn’t her doing) the night before.  This girl has one of the most original, radio ready voices I’ve heard in a long time.  She favors Sara Bareilles, with an Amy Winehouse flare that really hooks you in and keeps you wanting more.  Her tunes are sweet, but not too sugary and she seems completely organic and comfortable on stage.  This must be the day for female singer/songwriters (see our Jessica Campbell post from earlier) because Selena kept things going even when the bar was empty.  About three songs in, people started to flow into the venue, inquiring about her set and watching intently.  Highlights of her set include the performance of “Don’t Worry It’s Not Love,” the title track off her new EP, which just hit streets in December.  It reminds me of Sara Bareilles’ “Come Round Soon” with heavy moody keys and a bass line that will have you tapping your toes right away.  She finished her set with an song titled “Highway,” laced with bluesy inflections and driven by delicate keys.

There’s absolutely nothing negative I can say about Selena.  Her voice is magnificent, and her set brought a much-needed energy to Paradise.  If you missed Selena’s set Thursday check out her MySpace for a preview of tunes, a full list of upcoming shows and complete contact information.

Cage Virgin Seeks Reason to Dance and Finds Just What She's Looking For…

One sunny afternoon just north of Nashville, TN, the grit of southern rock fell in love with the energy of funk and the very essence of rock n’ roll.  Their love grew and multiplied and a short time later, out of Bowling Green, Kentucky, was born Cage The Elephant. Brothers Matt and Brad Schultz joined […]

Guitarist Brad Schultz Greeted The Crowd With A Fiery Intensity

One sunny afternoon just north of Nashville, TN, the grit of southern rock fell in love with the energy of funk and the very essence of rock n’ roll.  Their love grew and multiplied and a short time later, out of Bowling Green, Kentucky, was born Cage The Elephant.

Brothers Matt and Brad Schultz joined up with a high school friend Jared Champion, and family friend Danielle Tichenor.  A few months later Lincoln Parish, an eager young musician, e-mailed the group several times asking to join.  Subsequent jam sessions proved successful and Parish joined the group at the ripe old age of fifteen.  Cage The Elephant began to conquer the local tour circuit, and after word spread of their high-energy, high-chaos live shows, they signed with Relentless Records.  Since then, they’ve been working hard to release their debut album “Cage The Elephant” which dropped in the US June 23, 2008

Since 2007 Cage The Elephant has been touring and living in the UK where their first single, “In One Ear” debuted at number 26 on the Top 40 charts, and their intense live shows have earned them opening spots on tour with Kings of Leon and Queens of The Stone Age.  Cage’s organic melodies channel the likes of The Chili Peppers and their outspoken lyrics mock their critics with a raw poignancy reminiscent of Dylan himself.  On the opening track of their record the band claims, “They say that we ain’t got the style/we ain’t got the class/we ain’t got the tunes that’s gonna’ put us on the map” but subsequent tracks like “Back Stabbin’ Betty” and their second single “Ain’t No Rest For The Wicked” speak volumes to the band’s talent and creativity which few artists today possess.

Matt Schultz Gets Down And Dirty At RedGorilla

Having lived in Nashville for four years, I’ve heard a great deal about this little band from Bowling Green.  However, I have yet to have the pleasure of experiencing a live Cage The Elephant show, so this week’s performance at RedGorilla seemed like the perfect opportunity to get my feet wet.
I got to The Thirsty Nickel about twenty minutes before their set, and the venue was already packed.  There were people pouring out the doors, up the stairs and around the bar waiting for Cage to take the stage.  Once everything was set, Cage turned up the energy with their opener, “Lotus” and then proceeded to blow everyone’s mind with their unique sound and intense energy.

Matt Schultz Jumps From Balcony At Thirsty Nickel

Front man, Matt Schultz is an amazing performer.  At one point he even jumped down off the stage, rolled around on the ground, and then ran up the stairs and catapulted off the balcony back into the crowd.  It was quite a sight to see, and the fact that their music is amazing didn’t hurt the performance one bit.

Cage The Elephant Showed The Crowd What It Means To Rock

The set list was packed with new tunes, and a few from their UK release like the hit single, “In One Ear.”  This was probably one of my favorite performances of the entire festival!  It was high-energy, great music, at a great venue…what more could you ask for?!

Special thanks to Cage The Elephant for heading down to Austin for RedGorilla.  You guys rock!

Wednesday At The Blind Pig…

Alright, so we had some technical difficulties that prevented me from posting live today.  (Don’t worry it’ll all be worked out tomorrow)  If you got a chance to stop by the Blind Pig tonight you heard the smooth musical styling’s of The Rocketboys, and the pure classic rock that is The Effects.        […]

I got the chance to catch the tail end of The Rocketboys’ set, which was pure indie-rock with a shiny pop-edged blade and a propensity towards intricate lyrics.  The last few songs were really great, and everyone in the audience was totally vibin’ on it.

Forty minutes later when The Effects took the stage, the atmosphere of the entire venue switched gears, and everyone rocked out HARD.  If you’re not already familiar with The Effects, or if you’ve heard any of their recordings on MySpace the only thing I can tell you is to check out a live show of theirs.  Unfortunately, the music they have up on the Web right now does not do them justice at all.  The Effects know how to bring classic rock back to the present, and the do it so effortlessly, I found myself wishing I could jump up on stage and rock out with them.  Without a doubt, the rest of the audience would completely back me up on this.  There were at least 20 people standing up front dancing like the drunken fools I’m sure they were, and the energy these boys projected was being quickly absorbed and then re-emitted by everyone in the house tonight.

Being that this is my first RedGorilla experience, I really don’t have anything to compare it to, but let me just say that this was one of the best days of music I’ve experienced in a long time.  Thank you RedGorilla for introducing me to Austin the right way!
