    Chainbreaker

    CHAINBREAKER WHITE IPA // FLORAL AND CITRUS HOPS Alabama seems to be the last place to distribute great beer. Deschutes is one of those breweries that doesn’t distribute here, and it makes me terribly sad. For so long I sat and read reviews of beers like the Black Butte Porter (a brilliant porter, really beyond […]

    SPY // LAUGHTER’S FIRST LADY “Unaccompanied Minors” director Paul Feig has been grooming plus-sized actress Melissa McCarthy for the big time since he cast her as the loquacious, scene-stealing, puppy-napper in “Bridesmaids.” Meanwhile, when she isn’t co-starring in her prime-time CBS-TV series “Mike and Molly,” McCarthy has been landing bigger roles in “Identity Thief” and […]

    VINTAGE VIBE New shows are always being invented and created for networks. Audiences need to be kept entertained, and that gets increasingly hard with each plot idea, or character that gets created. There are only so many plots that one can do. Netflix, however, has the right idea. Along with creating new content, they’ve also […]

    HotDamnScandal

    HOT DAMN SCANDAL // FLAWED PERFECTION Last week on Pearl Street in downtown Boulder, Colorado, I stumbled onto something beautiful. Four scruffy guys stood playing folk music on the sidewalk, crowded around a beat-up old suitcase with a hand-written sign: “10 Bucks For A CD.” One guy had a washboard around his neck and a […]

  • BANDITOS // RIP-ROARING DEBUT

    0004648111_10

    BANDITOS // RIP-ROARING DEBUT Banditos’ self-titled debut is a rowdy, rollicking good time, a totally uninhibited collision course of Appalachian twang, rock ‘n’ roll swagger, blues throb, punk snarl and youthful inertia. And they’re some of Alabama’s own: the band’s six members came together on the street corners and in the open-mike dives of Birmingham […]

  • ICELANDIC FOLK-ROCK BAND KALEO // COMING TO SLOSS FEST

    IMG_7472

    ICELANDIC FOLK-ROCK BAND KALEO // COMING TO SLOSS FEST Even though the international appeal of the blues was never in doubt—not since the British Invasion, at least—the recent successes of the blues-folk-rock quartet Kaleo, and their path to performing at Sloss Fest in Birmingham in July, remain curious. Iceland, the band’s home, is a beautiful […]
