If you’ve spent much time around the DC music scene for the past five years, you’ve heard of Paperhaus. They’re a band founded by long time musical partners Alex Tebeleff and Eduardo Rivera, and over the course of two EPs and multiple national tours, they’ve worked their way up as one of the most well-known live bands in the city. Danny Bentley joined the band in 2014, adding a new edge and energy to the band with his relentless and powerful drumming.

SHOW PREVIEW: Big Star’s Third
Boy, oh boy, are we in for a big treat this Saturday at the Club!
Most music buffs are by now familiar with Big Star’s delayed success story, but here’s a quick recap. The Memphis power poppers were initially active from 1971 to 1974, during which time they recorded three albums: #1 Record, Radio City, and Third/Sister Lovers. None of the albums achieved commercial success upon their releases, and Big Star soon disbanded. It wasn’t until 1978, when Third had a proper, widespread release through PVC Records, that Big Star’s genius was finally noticed. 
Although Big Star was at that point inactive, Third became a cult classic and eventually landed a spot on Rolling Stone's “500 Greatest Albums of All Time" list. Numerous bands formed in the early 1980s, including R.E.M., The Replacements, and The Jesus and Mary Chain, were inspired in part by Big Star’s newfound eminence. Now deemed "Memphis’ answer to The Beatles,” Big Star’s legacy is undeniable, as depicted in Nothing Can Hurt Me. 
To further the legacy, as well as commemorate Big Star mastermind Alex Chilton, founding drummer Jody Stephens, along with Chilton-collaborator Chris Stamey (of The dB’s), hatched “Big Star’s Third” tour. Stephens and Stamey called upon friends, including Mike Mills of R.E.M. and Pat Sansone of Wilco, to embark on a four-day stint of performing Big Star’s two most celebrate albums, Third and #1 Record, in their entireties. 
This Saturday’s Club stop on the once-in-a-lifetime tour features, in addition to the above star-studded list of musicians, special guest Lesa Aldridge (Chilton’s muse for much of Third) and a twelve-piece chamber orchestra. Bring tissues, because the experience just might make you misty-eyed.

article: The Loudest Word in Rock and Roll

Fascinating article over at The Atlantic about the history of the word “The” in terms of musical acts:

The band’s right to think about the grammatical implications of “the.” “There’s a distinction between count nouns, which can be enumerated—hives or, sometimes, so so glos—and a mass noun, which is something that, like electricity or freedom, simply cannot,” the OED’s Shiedlower explained. “There are contexts where you can make peace or love or freedom plural, but usually that isn’t the case.  Water is a good example. Whether you have a puddle or an ocean, you just have water.

So the lack of an article has literal implications for the meaning of a band’s name: “Cults” vs. “The Cults,”  “Foals” vs. “The Foals,” “Creem” vs. “The Creem.” But what about as a linguistic phenomenon?

It will fascinate you - check it out here.

Thrilling news for VU heads — apparently a portion of the Velvet Underground’s fabled Matrix Tapes will be part of a deluxe reissue of the band’s self-titled third album, slated for release later this year. The Holy Grail! You can still go check out my write-up and the sampler of tantalizing snippets over on Aquarium Drunkard. Cannot wait to hear this stuff in full.

My Bloody Valentine’s cover of MAP REF 41ºN 93ºW by Wire is a song I can listen to over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over

Bolstered by the runaway popularity of his “Lucy Sings” video, Philip Collins returns with a midlife-crisis anthem and a video that, this time around, required more than driving around the block with an out-of-focus camera. An all-star band and a cast of dozens join him for this months-in-the-making filmed entertainment.
