*** THIS GUY IS A CON ARTIST ***
He played the sympathy card on my wife while she cared for him as his nurse in the hospital. He manipulated her in her vulnerablability and she cheated on me with him. Support this guys health and recover sure, but I wouldn't give him a cent!!! AND WHATEVER YOU DO DONT LEAVE YOUR WIFE ALONE WITH HIM!!!

I had the privilege of seeing Amos Lee in November of 2o16 in Seattle. Its true, its not an intellectual experience, but an emotional one. There were times of laughter, pondering and I sat in my seat and literally wept during some songs. Anticipating his next visit to Seattle /Tacoma area.
AYO!!!!! Ms. Kia Moore's writing here portrays Jason exactly as he is!! It's the most spot on depiction of Jason's mannerisms! I love her writing style. My college sophomore English 2 Honors teach Mrs. "I didn't like her very much" would have loved this article. 10/10
I hope Kia does more articles on Jason's highlights and career. I hope Kia could write something this flattering on quite a few other Charlotte artist (not trying to steal Jason's shine).
Write ups and coverage like this are exactly what the city needs to warm up the musical atmosphere!
I started listening to MxPx in 1993 and they were my favorite band until I found Switchfoot a few years and then they were my second favorite band. From what I recall, even back then people were tearing them down and calling them sellouts and not real Christians, so it's not like they were setting themselves up as a band whose main goal was to make little punk rock disciples. They just made great punk rock that I loved and still love. I'm a very devout Christian, grew up in church, still go to church, and then and now MxPx didn't determine my faith in Christ. if anything, hearing all the talk about whether or not they were "really" Christian, while listening and moshing to their music, gave me freedom to examine my own faith, make it my own and not one based on someone else's life. Artists express themselves, if they are true artists, and don't just put up an accepted message as a front, whether it's punk rock, painting, or pottery. His personal search for truth is his own, and he has no responsibility to do more than express that honestly through his music. And make great punk rock, of course.
Nice job Ryan. My partners and I captured more than 80 hours of original footage from The Double Door Inn over the past 6 months. These performances and interviews include Bob Margolin, Tinsley Ellis, Mark Wenner of the Nighthawks, Gigi Dover, Gina Stewart of Doubting Thomas, Jim Brock, Bill Noonan, Ziad Rabie, Bill Hanna, and more. Of course we also interviewed staff, patrons, promoters and the owners, Nick and Matt Karres.
We've edited this remarkable new video content, along with vintage performance video, photos and music, into a Blu-Ray that will be available in limited numbers via Amazon in February. The title is "Live From The Double Door Inn: A Documentary." In addition to the documentary, we included some bonus footage.
Hope you'll check it out. Thanks to everyone who helped make it happen.
You keep doing you Mike.
Here I came for what seemed like a background article on one of my favorite groups, only to read your use of them as a standard for female comedy. I listen to them for their raw expression and beautifully honest absurdity. I agree that women are finding more of their own voices and, I find, are really struggling against what has always been considered "manhood"-- but I also don't feel like you "get" their music at all. And clearly that bothered me enough to write all this.
Not to mention your clear miss on the Modest Proposal parallels, sadly adding to the argument of "not getting it" while placing artists in a comedic category. If I earnestly expressed myself and you thought it was funny, I'd take your money but I'd write you off as a person.
I just saw delta Rae at Riverhawk music festival this weekend and while they sang a couple Fleetwood Mac songs ( which they rocked) they mostly sang a lot of original work that was ligitimently excellent. Not sure who these reviewers are but a crowd of over 1,000 LOVED them and where in there feet dancing and applauding! Even my teenage granddaughter loved them and her favorite songs were there original work. Can't wait to see them again

I love Lisa De Novo!!
Love this. Lisa is a great musician and teacher!
Well, Peter Gerstenzang, I don't think Bill Payne was into the session, Hayward and Lowell were for sure and they played great as could have been suspected. The only problem I have with this great collection of songs is that they are to far back in the mix, the orchestral parts too overbearing, in keeping with those decadent days, and the whole to sweetly produced. i don't mind the adding of orchestral backgrounds, and sometimes they take care of the doomladen atmosphere very effective, but they lack grit and fill in the spaces too much, where some breath of silence could have worked better, but those were the dreamy seventies, clouds of smoke taking us right into the horror of the eighties, which in its lyrics seem predicted by Paris 1919.
So, how were they?
It really sucks. The article states that he didn't preach when he was a teenager, but that simply isn't true. Pokinatcha was very straightforward Christian album. As a teenager growing up listening to mxpx in the 90s, I was heavily inspired by the way a band like that could walk the fine line between not being legalistic and still being Christian. It's a total bummer that he's moved past his faith, as that is something that's going to catch up with him in the end unfortunately. Also, he has such a high influence with the youth and most of what I've heard from him in interviews, on stage, and on his radio show isn't even middle-ground secularism, but sometimes very vulgar. I'm not trying to judge, but it's an absolute shame that he has so much potential to positively influence a younger audience and can't do anything with it. I honestly feel like he should retire mxpx and start something new. The band was formed and marketed end brought through the ranks of the Christian music Market - if the band is no longer reflecting any of that, the sensible thing to do would be to put it to rest.
Manhandlin/ Dickey Betts is a fabulous guitarist! I'm sure you aren't a tenth as good as he.
Simon Kirke is not the only original member of Bad Company coming to the PNC tomorrow. Paul Rodgers, the original, and only true, Bad Company vocalist is very much a part of the band. Nor did I ever say that the RRHOF had no place for Bad Company. What I said was that SO FAR they have not been inducted, but that it is inevitable that they will be.
