MUSIC REVIEW | Love over Gold, The Icicles, Erik Koskinen and the Real Phonic Radio Band at the Hill Library

Mayor Chris Coleman welcomed the crowd to Real Phonic Radio at the James J Hill Reference Library Thursday, October 16. And I have to say, our Mayor is a good sport, reading in the usual iireverant appraoch of regular spokesman, Thom MIddlebrook. He astutely observed that while we had enough entertainment for three shows in Minneapolis, it was all hitting one stage in St Paul—as it does every third Thursday.

When I arrived at Myth in Maplewood on October 16, I was completely worn out. I was dead tired from a long day, feeling the first symptoms of a cold coming on, and finding myself more or less in a state of mind that was probably completely the opposite of what I should have had heading into The Glitch Mob show. I was sick and tired of being sick and tired, slightly grumpy, and more than a little ready to be annoyed.

Mayda to play New Century Theatre

Home grown phenom, funk rocking vocalist-songsmith par excellence Mayda (www.imaydasong.com) has star power stamped all over her in block letters. She has, in fact, ever since her debut Stereotype was released in 2008, continuing to consistently impress with The Interrogation, Tusks 'N' Fur and, now, Busy Signals. Her upcoming performance at the New Century Sessions series, smack dab in the middle of downtown Minneapolis, should go a respectable way toward sustaining momentum and establishing just the sort of next-step, high-profile traction she deserves around these parts.

If you listen closely enough, you can still hear Pixies fans referring to performances by the Boston four-piece as, “reunion shows,” or describing the band as, “reunited.” And, technically, these fans are correct. After a string of weird and wildly dynamic, near-perfect albums in the late-80s and early-90s, Pixies famously broke up via fax in 1993 before being able to truly benefit commercially from the alt-rock revolution their music had helped inspire.

SOUNDING OFF ON SOUNDS | New Primitives at NYE's

Pick a Thursday, any Thursday, and go over to NYE's Polonaise Room for some New Primitives. The band that Stanley Kipper and Chico Perez built is there every week, keeping the world safe for kick-ass Afro-Cuban Rock. They get out every now and again to big-time, high profile spots like Minnesota Zoo, Fine Line and The Cabooze. But, you can catch them bar-hall up close and personal and, trust me, it's one hell of a good time.
