Earth, Wolves in the Throne Room, and Lori Goldsten at the Echoplex, 4/20/10

Lori Goldsten

Cello challenger
Painted ominous forests
With each stroke of bow.

Wolves In The Throne Room

If they're poseurs, I
Fear legitimacy. Those
Wolves amply shook me.


Like a wakeful dream,
SO precise, SO elegant
Subconscious seduced.

Young Hunting at the Echo Curio, 4/17/10

The line up shuffle
Served to underscore their vast
Vocal improvements!

Author and Punisher at Vacation Records, 4/16/10

An industrial
Revolutionary both
Rare and impressive

Ramona (Nite Jewel) and Stellar Om Source at The Show Cave, 4/10/2010

Ramona (Nite Jewel)

Surprisingly and
Delightfully Enya-esque,
but with fangs, of course.

Stellar Om Source

Lots of "Look what my
Machines can do!" Less "Look what
I can do with them!"

The Wedding Present at the Troubadour, 4/2/10

With so much grace and
Dignity, he ripped the strings
Off that brave guitar

Bill Orcutt, Peter Kolovos and Nevai/Wolcott at Synchronicity Space, 3/27/10


Sparks of sheer genius
Intermingled with playful
Self-aware banter.

Peter Kolovos

Climactic without
Melody, the sheer force of
Sound purged our tear ducts.

Bill Orcutt

Constructed brambles
Inside our ears and then drew
Us through them, gently.
