Nicki Bluhm And The Gramblers

Nobody ever said that life on the road was easy.  And even when you travel the country in a van (that is the studio of the now infamous YouTube recordings), sometimes things happen.  What do you do when your vehicle has brake problems?  Leave the drummer behind and do an all acoustic, late night set at Stickyz!  While some bands might have skipped the show, not these guys.  The folks that stuck it out were treated to a version of a show not many get to see.

Rob Zombie at Barton

Shock Rocker Rob Zombie performs for fans at Barton Coliseum in Little Rock.  Headlining a show with Marilyn Manson, Zombie brought the stage props, pyrotechnics and gruesomeness his fans are used to seeing.

“From photographer Tim Vahsholtz, here are some photos from the Twins of Evil Tour, featuring Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson, which stopped off at Barton Coliseum Monday. There are no photos of Marilyn Manson available.”

Silversun Pickups revisted

Sometimes, it’s nice to go back and revisit photos from a show a while back.  This time, it’s the “triple bill” Silversun Pickups show from September, 2009.  Cage The Elephant and Manchester Orchestra opened for the band, in a 500 seat venue that, I don’t think, was completely sold out.  What a difference a couple of years makes, as all three bands have gained popularity. Anytime you can see an up-and-coming group in a venue that holds only a few hundred, you should definitely do it.

Silversun Pickups releases their new album, “Neck Of The Woods,” on May 8th.

A few more pics of the show, here.
