Live Last Night: The Coathangers

The Coathangers, probably not coming back to D.C. anytime soon. Sometimes I feel this weird obligation to go to certain shows. Last night was one of those instances. The Coathangers, a fun, all-girl punk band from Atlanta, were at the Red & the Black. There was no local support...

The Two-Minute Man, Episodes 16 and 17: Supersize Edition

It's a mega-edition of the Two-Minute Man as we go 20 deep after missing last week. I think we'll probably wrap up this grand experiment after another three weeks. [How about two? -- Ed.] I just don't know how many more Tom Petty anecdotes I can come up with. Perhaps...

Dan Tyminski's Well-Timed Encore

'Of everything that stands, the end.' Saturday night at the Birchmere. The Dan Tyminski Band is kinda-sorta closing out a red-hot set of bluegrass by blazing through "Freeborn Man," the Paul Revere and the Raiders song that's become something like a modern bluegrass staple. It's an absolutely explosive finger-picking...

The Return Of 'No Rain'

David Segal has a story in today's Post about Blind Melon's return from the grave. Lead singer Shannon Hoon died 13 years ago, but the band has revived itself by replacing Hoon with ... a guy who has a Shannon Hoon tattoo. Huh. Blind Melon 2.0 plays tonight at the...
