Brit Pop is 20 years old

Brit Pop is 20 years old . Well not exactly, but Blur’s Parklife was released this month in 1994 changing the musical landscape from grungy to poppy.  It wasn’t exactly the British Invasion but instead of The Beatles vs.  The Stones, we had Oasis vs. Blur.  Instead of John and Yoko we had Damon Alborn […]

Non traditional country acts from the 50s, 60s, 70s & 80s are represented at Stagecoach.  Get ready to hear Lynyrd Skynyrd,  Don McLean, Michael Nesmith, Wanda Jackson, Duane Eddy and Susanna Hoffs (it’ll be fun to hear her twang “Eternal Flame”). Since I’m lazy, I’ll let other people create playlists to get you pumped for […]

Stagecoach

Strip away the ironic facial hair, tattoos and knit caps of the Coachella male and replace it with sincere facial hair, baseball caps and denim and you’ve got the Stagecoach fan.  Girls still wear whatever they want.  I will never figure them out. The thing I can figure out is that the most interesting bands are always […]

Look who’s bringing the old school vibe?  It’s new music from Australian Iggy Azalea  showcasing her 90s skills with this spot on Clueless inspired video for “Fancy”. Ten years after Clueless became a hit Kelis started bringing all the boys to the yard with her “Milkshake“. In 2014, Kelis is still talking about Food as that is the name of […]

Record Store Day

Record Store Day 2014 is here!  Frankly, like Coachella it’s gotten a little out of control.  Much like I’d prefer to see bands in a club instead of with 50,000 people, I’d prefer to shop on my own time instead of waiting for a couple hours to get my purchase. However, I am all for […]
