    By Chuck Cox Special Contributor There is nothing quite like the intimacy of a solo acoustic show at a smaller venue. Those types of concerts typically involve hearing stripped-down versions of songs you know and love, performed by an artist you know and love, who also happens to be in […]

    By Chuck Cox Special Contributor It’s pretty safe to say The Avett Brothers is officially one of my favorite bands. In a couple of weeks, I’m heading to Denver for the second straight year to see the Avetts play at my absolute favorite venue, Red Rocks. This time around, I’m […]

    By Chuck Cox Special Contributor It’s not very often you get to hear songwriters who helped write monster hits get to show off their chops as live performers. One of those opportunities came up for me last Thursday at Poor David’s Pub, as Liz Rose, Lori McKenna, Stephony Smith and […]

    Mike Tramp’s Arlington Gig Quite the Adventure

    Tramp played a 14-song set consisting mostly of White Lion songs. He played acoustic guitar with a backing track for almost all of the songs. He also changed up some arrangements on some of the band’s bigger tunes, like “Little Fighter,” “Wait” and “Tell Me.” Although the backing track was a tad distracting, it worked well with the setting.

    It was my second time to see Kinky, but this time was a real treat because he played an acoustic set, starting with his sublime cover of Woody Guthrie’s “Pretty Boy Floyd.” In between cracking wise, peddling his own brand of whiskey and pushing for the legalization of pot in the Lone Star State, he ran through most of most well-known tunes.
