The pride of Tennessee brought a three-hour plus set of country, punk and metal on Sunday at Pappy and Harriet’s.

As the show ended you could almost sense the ghost of Pappy looking down on this old Honky Tonk nodding his head in appreciation that Hank 3 lived up to his pedigree at Pappy and Harriet’s. Click on the link for a complete review written for the Coachella Valley Independent:

Last night the Pixies began their 2nd leg of their North American Tour at Humphreys in San Diego. The Pixies have new material from EP1, EP2, EP3, which combined, represents the Pixies fifth studio album Indy Cindy that has been self released under Pixiesmusic.

Humphreys is located in the San Diego bay and you could actually hear the show for free if you paddle board, kayak, or push your home made raft up against the venue’s waters edge as did a few dozen people who could not get tickets for this sold out show. 

The entire band appeared in a great mood with the stoical Joey Santiago looking very serious. Black Francis sparked up everyone and the exhilaration of the crowd was endless only muffled by the very polite security staff that kept dancing to a minimum during this nearly ninety minute set. The Pixies included “Isla de Encanta,” “Broken Face,” “U-Mass,” “Hey, “and “Caribou.”  The Pixies integrated newer material including “Magdalena,” “Greens and Blues,” and “Indy Cindy” from their newest album Indy Cindy which was well received by their fans.

Black’s howls, and squawks were faultless for this unconventional vocalist who showed his vocal range that has stood up with Pixies heavy tour schedule over the last few years.

 

David Lovering crooned the very popular “La La Love You” which was a delight. Paz Lenchantin the touring bassist appeared at ease and Paz’s backing vocals were pitch perfect. Lenchantin has been touring with the band since January with no decision being made if Kim Deal will be permanently replaced.

Joey Santiago exhibited his ability to play his guitar without touching the strings with his fingers during most of “Vamos.” David Lovering helped by tossing his drumstick that Joey used as a bow to showcase his guitar skills at one point unplugging his guitar and only relying on the guitar jack’s distortion during his guitar solo that he hit against the palm of his hand. The Pixies left the stage after “Vamos” and returned shortly to end the concert with their mega hit “Where is My Mind?”

The Pixies will be at Hollywood Bowl today and touring in a town near you.

Nostalghia the Los Angeles based group returned home on Sunday at the Sunset Strip Music Festival.

In contrast to other acts at this festival Nostalghia brought a new era of dark wave to the Sunset Strip in support of their album Chrysalis during their afternoon set on the West stage.

Fronted by Ciscandra Nostalghia a tall goth princess stood out as she took the stage accompanied by touring cellist Adele Stein and percussionist/ keyboardist Roy Gnan.

Ciscandra appeared not of this world in both beauty and song with exquisite vocals and melancholy lyrics about love and the consequences of misplaced desire.

Ghan and Stein supported wonderfully with elaborate arrangements. Ciscandra shocks you as she pulls you in with her delicate voice as she screams in “Cool for Chaos.” You feel for the protagonist of “I am Robot hear me glitch,” as she connects with the Sunset Strip audience as Ciscandra sings about wanting to love.

Ciscandra Nostalghia ended her set with “I’d still kill you,” which included the haunting lyrics “Told me he knew a place
 where water was golden
 and love could be mummified
 I shouldn’t have sold him
 I shouldn’t have let him cry I still love you I still want you I’d still kill you.”

Nostalghia had the best performance that day on the Sunset Strip.
