Radiohead has found a unique balance between the bizarre and the entertaining with their last few albums.
Avey Tare's first solo album isn't quite what you would expect out from a crucial member of Animal Collective. Then again, you never get what you'd expect from the genre-defying experimental group. For Tare's first album from the late 1990's, he recruited friend Noah Lennox (Panda Bear) to beat the drums. Nine albums later, they are still creating music. Panda has gone on to record three solo albums with a fourth coming soon, including the highly acclaimed (and 2007's best) "Person Pitch." It's no wonder Tare finally decided to try it himself, and the final product is the challenging "Down There."
Smoke and heat loomed over an energetic crowd Friday night at Sokol Underground where Tech N9ne was set to take the stage for the first of his two-day concert series here in Omaha.
The lofty auditorium of the Holland Performing Arts Center stirred with folks excited to take a trip down memory lane on Jan. 12. The audience was excited to take a trip through their glory days, back to the 80's as world-class guitarist Daryl Stuermer prepared to take the stage for the second consecutive night.
The crowd gathered to listen to the stylings of the former guitarist for Phil Collins, best known for his 1979 chart topper "In the air tonight" and his Disney movie classic "You'll be in my heart." Stuermer's musical career has been an evolution of life-changing and career-catapulting experiences, all of which led him to where he is today.
