Live Review: The Hold Steady at Revolution Music Room, September 23

Live Review: The Hold Steady at Revolution Music Room, September 23

By Lizzie Burnham

In June of 2007, The Hold Steady made their way to Sticky Fingerz Rock ‘n’ Roll Chicken Shack.  A little over three years later, they graced the stage of Revolution Music Room.  Even though there have been some line-up changes, most notably with their keyboardist extraordinaire Franz Nicolay leaving the group, the same awe-inspiring principle and hard work ethic remained very true to this show.

Frightened Rabbit isn’t afraid of Eyjafjallajökull – Performing at Revolution Music Room, April 23 and Black Cat, April 27

Fact: Frightened Rabbit was one of our (and probably everyone’s) favorite band at SXSW this year. The Scottish indie rock band are both refreshing and talented. On the “up-and-coming” side of things, Frightened Rabbit are definitely on the up and we predict it’s only going to get better. Thanks to Eyjafjallajökull, the band had to […]

Live Review & Picture Book: G. Love and Special Sauce @ Revolution Music Room, April 1

Article and photos by Sarah Spencer

On April 1, 2010, the day G. Love and Special Sauce hit Little Rock, I decided to make arrangements to catch the show and, boy, am I glad I did! Although I was flying solo (some of my friends can’t be as spontaneous as yours truly) the nearly 500 strong at the Rev Room made my imaginations of a lonely night disappear. It was one, big, diverse, group of fans at a groove thumping, intimate jam session. Read more about Live Review & Picture Book: G. Love and Special Sauce @ Revolution Music Room, April 1

Live Review: Paul Thorn @ Revolution Music Room in Little Rock, Ark., January 27

Live Review: Paul Thorn @ Revolution Music Room in Little Rock, Ark., January 27

By Sarah Spencer

I must admit, I may be a little biased when it comes to reviewing this concert. Blues, alternative country singer/songwriter and folk artist Paul Thorn has the ability of putting voodoo love spells on women, both young and old, and I have fallen victim to his charms. With that being said, the concert was the best I’ve ever been to in my entire life and I am determined to see him again as soon as possible. Texas in July, here I come! Excuse me, I digress.

The mild January night began at Little Rock’s The Revolution Music Room with me meeting up with a girlfriend of mine whom I hadn’t seen in over three years. A Paul Thorn concert would be perfect to mark the auspicious occasion. She had never heard of him before, which was not surprising – most haven’t, but I had seen him in concert once prior and I knew it would be an unforgettable show. I call him a blues/alt-country artist but it’s hard to describe Paul Thorn’s music accurately. Known for his sometimes amusing, always entertaining stories woven between and throughout songs, his music has elements of many genres including rock, soul, funk, gospel and R&B.

For an artist you’ve probably never heard of, he has had a long successful career working with musical giants like Sting, Bonnie Raitt, John Prine and Huey Lewis just to name a few. Many artists, such as Tanya Tucker, Toby Keith and Sawyer Brown, have covered his songs. But, no one sounds like Paul. He has one distinctive set of vocal chords while his Mississippian accent oozes masculine sexuality and roughness. He makes me want to hang from his lips. But he don’t just talk the talk, he walks the walk. When he came out to the stage, Mandy asked me, “Why didn’t you tell me he was so hot?” However, his enticing good looks and alluring voice are only part of his appeal. A gifted songwriter and rhythm guitarist, he is backed up by an exceptionally talented band consisting of Billy Maddox, songwriter/producer, Bill Hinds on acoustic, electric and slide guitars as well as background vocals, Doug Kahan on bass guitar and background vocals, Michael Graham, aka Dr. Love, on keys and last, but certainly not least, Jeffery Perkins on drums.
