Why the Reverend Horton Heat is living a whole new musical life

This reverend has been preaching the rockabilly gospel for more than 30 years. The Reverend Horton Heat, the stage name adopted by singer and guitarist Jim Heath, is feeling better than ever about his long music career. The band, which also uses the moniker, just added two new young members, Texas drummer Arjuna “RJ” Contreras and rock pianist Matt Jordan from West Virginia, who are joining Heath and longtime slap-bass player Jimbo Wallace on the 51-stop national tour and bringing along a new vi...

Styx kicks off City National Grove of Anaheim’s 20th anniversary celebration

On Sept. 4, 1999, rock band Styx became the first group to grace the stage at City National Grove of Anaheim, then known as The Sun Theatre. The yellow and tan-colored, multi-use entertainment venue, located off Katella Avenue in between Disneyland and Honda Center, is easy to spot with its giant branded water tower. The building along the northern edge of the Angel Stadium parking lot had briefly served as an awards show-themed restaurant, Tinseltown Studios, in 1998 but the concept failed to t...

Travel: No ship of fools for these cruise performers

Garry Carson has heard it thousands of times from cruise passengers before showtime: “I don’t like magic, but let’s see if the guy is any good.” Some entertainers would have bruised egos overhearing such comments, especially on a crowded elevator ride to the deck of the theater. But after 500-plus cruises over 22 years, the seafaring magician knows the life of taking an act on the road where there are no roads. “These people aren’t there because they love or even like magic,” said Carson, pointi...

The 10 Best Albums Of 2018 All Have One Thing In Common: They're Made By Women

Commercially speaking, 2018 wasn’t a great year for the representation of women in music. Once again, the top 10s – Spotify, Billboard and the like – are dominated by men. But some of the most interesting, most boundary-pushing, and best music of this year came from women. In our opinion, women made all the best albums this year; from Ariana Grande, who made the best album of her career thus far, to Cardi B, whose star shone brighter than any man in rap, to Camila Cabello, whose solo debut surp...

Aretha Franklin: Context, Intersectionality, and the Rock Canon

None Let's face it, the established canon of popular music, especially from the mid-20th century on, is dominated by rock and white male artists: the Beatles, Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan, and the Rolling Stones. How does Aretha Franklin fit into this canon, and what challenges can she pose to it, as one of the few women of color whom it has unequivocally embraced? Franklin fits within a prescribed framework of artists of color and female artists, as tied to specific contexts, including social mov...

Composers Collaborate!

In the beginning of August 2018, I was in Montpelier, Vermont, preparing to give a talk to the students enrolled in the Vermont College of Fine Arts MFA in Music Composition Program. My talk was titled, “How Many Hats Can a Composer Wear Successfully?”. I looked out at my colleagues in the room. I knew what the response would be: one of beleaguered pride, the pride of a warrior who knows the score and has survived despite the odds against him or her. In that moment, I realized that I didn’t real...
