Matt Cartsonis Live at Boulevard Music

Whether he’s pickin’ Pete Seeger’s banjo, singing with Emmylou Harris or rescuing a boatload of Cuban refugees, Matt Cartsonis always manages to fly under the radar. Quite possibly the music industry’s equivalent to Dean Moriarty (the unlikely hero and exceptionally cool sidekick in Jack Kerouac’s On the Road), Matt Cartsonis is a character whose legendary tales are so far from the realm of normal experience, one hell of a book could be written about his adventures and misadventures across the vast landscape of American music.

Mark W. Lennon Home of the Wheel

What is perhaps most unique about Lennon, is his ability to write sentimental songs that maintain a hopeful innocence, which is something that is rare to find in an artist.

LA can be a tough town, but this has been a good year. It feels like there is a great nucleus of new bands that are coming together. It is fun to go out and see a friend’s band play and come out thinking, ‘damn they’re good.”

 Damngivers Damngivers

Offering up everything from twang-tinged melodic pop to full-fledged country rock, Long Beach based Damngivers have delivered one damngood EP.  With vocals somewhere between Elvis Costello and Bob Dylan, front-man Gerry Gomez has created a solid debut that’s as catchy as the finer moments of Wilco, yet captures the raw energy and power of  70s songwriters like Lou Reed or Neil Young.

 Paladino Paladino

“Lonely Mountain” kicks off the debut self-titled offering by Los Angeles based, Paladino or rather, more appropriately rattles the dust off it.  The up-tempo bar-room style country rock is a Love meets Knitters meets Tito LaRiva with a Lou Reed tinge that comes out sounding like something in a Mexican desert bar that paints a real earthy, hyped up borracho ballad, somewhat adjacent to a Spaghetti Western with a lot of tequila thrown in.

Gal Holiday and the Honky Tonk Revue Set Two

A few years ago, no one in New Orleans thought that country music would again thrive alongside jazz, zydeco and funk, but Vanessa Niemann and David Brouillette of award winning band Gal Holiday and the Honky Tonk Revue have proven the naysayers wrong. Having self-released their second studio album, “Set Two” in May of 2010 they spent 2011 traveling back and forth between the Left Coast and the Gulf Coast.

Gal Holiday and the Honky Tonk Revue will be performing December 23, 2011 at Harvelle’s Holiday Hullabaloo in Long Beach. The show is sponsored by Turnstyled Junkpiled. [Click for show information and tickets]
