Though a coincidence – a tour date in Columbus a day after their 7th album is released – you can pretend like Mice Parade’s show at The Tree Bar on Wednesday night is a CD release party.
Candela‘s a great late-night listen – layers of sounds filling each song leading some to label Mice Parade as a shoegazer band. The hypnotic sway of the first single, “This River Has a Tide”, doesn’t prove contrary to this idea.
Fidlar and Wavves are touring together. They are also fun punk bands that are on Mom & Pop Records.
Fidlar has a video for “Wait for the Man” below. It is on their self-titled album which has song titles like “Max Don’t Surf”. “Cheap Beer”, and “Wake Bake Skate”.
This is a great snapshot of the 30-day fall tour Phil Cogley (The Saturday Giant) went on a few months ago. Admittedly, as the 17-minute clip came to an end, I was hoping to find out that this was just a trailer for a much longer film. Sadly, it’s not. But it’s an entertaining video and one that flies by.
I had the chance to ask Phil about the tour and the documentary. Check it out over at ColumbusCalling.com.
Rolling Stone announced tour dates for another Fleetwood Mac reunion tour “built around Fleetwood Mac’s large catalog of hits,” though Nicks told RS, “We actually have two new Fleetwood Mac songs that I cut with Lindsey two weeks ago we might play.” Not sure if that’s good news or bad news…
The band kicks off the tour in Columbus at Nationwide Arena on April 4.

Can’t believe a week ago at this time we were hopping into the car and headed to Cincinnati for the Bunbury Festival. Over the course of 3 days we saw a lot of really great acts; it seemed like whichever band we saw most recently was the one we tagged with “best set at Bunbury” tag. When I think back about the act that truly stood out for me, without a doubt it was Austin, Texas trio Ume.
While I had heard the band’s 2011 release Phantoms on Spotify, I was unprepared for the HEAVINESS that was unleashed on a steamy Sunday afternoon. Describing Ume’s sound to fellow festivalgoers, before seeing the band, I said, “It’s like The Joy Formidable if they were influenced by Black Sabbath instead of ’80s and ’90s British rock.” That description was right on the mark. Singer/guitarist Lauren Larson was the fiercest guitar player I witnessed over the course of the festival, playing heavy riffs and bouncing around the stage as if possessed by a demon. This type of performance will serve the band well on the tour they are kicking off with The Toadies and Helmet (dates after the jump). Before seeing them, I wondered if they would be able to hold their own with those two bands. After seeing them, I have little doubt.
Connie and Olivia, our two 11-year-old budding rock journalists, were able to snag a few minutes with the trio following their blistering performance.
