    The maitre d' of R&B - Elvis T. Busboy drives his soul train into the future

    Up on stage, sliding coolly in a juke joint pas de deux, Elvis T. Busboy is decidedly not your average R&B crooner. With his linebacker's physique, slicked-back Bobby Darin hair and a Mephistophelean goatee that predates slacker fashion, Busboy looks...

    Dream state - Comatheatre lets the audience connect the dots

    The sound is as flowing and wide-open as the tail of a comet, whooshing through a pastiche of found sounds and percussion--some electronic, some organic--sounding for all the world like elevator music from a lift somewhere past Pluto. It's hard ...

    Electric blue - Jim Suhler talks about life and the local bluesman

    Looking at Jim Suhler, it's hard not to be reminded of renegades from high school: the stoners and gearheads had his long brown hair and aquiline nose, their slender frames no guarantee that they wouldn't slap the crap outta you if you crossed them. ...

    In search of the perfect melody - The outer-space roots of Transona Five

    The five members of Transona Five sit comfortably in the living room of the Lower Greenville house that bass player Greg Morgan and drummer G.P. Cole share. Although still in their early 20s, the two have spent the last 10 years playing together in p...

    Billy Bigelow revisited - There's still more to John Raitt than being Bonnie's dad

    John Raitt never wore roller skates on stage; he never wore a cat suit or a silly half-face mask, but then again, he was a star on Broadway when Broadway stars were people, not productions. A leading man who's survived to see an age in which there ar...

    Who? - Radish comes out of nowhere to grab at the gold ring

    In the media-intensive, market-savvy world we live in today, the growth cycle of pop bands has been steadily accelerated in the name of commercial return: Like the foresters who oversee the genetically altered pulpwood trees of East Texas, music exec...

    In state by the lake? - Is a Bible Belt freakout threatening Solstice shindig?

    Desperately seeking Tori - Mooncalf? Genius? Tori Amos pushes past the labels

    His work is never done - Robert Earl Keen would like nothing better than to save country music

    Robert Earl Keen was country when country didn't want him. It still doesn't, as a matter of fact, but that's OK: Nashville wouldn't know a country singer if one crawled out of Hank Williams' coffin. But pockets of rabid Robert Earl fans, multipl...
