Overexposed & All Shook Down: Th' Legendary Shack Shakers Meat-Flash Ankle-Biters, Big Daddies and Holy Rollers at Rcktwn

Posted By on Mon, Jun 30, 2008 at 10:55 PM


OK cats, here's the word from the bird that could have warranted 100+ comments. As pointed out in the overheated turd that has become the comments section on our review of the Rancid show, singer J.D. Wilkes of Th' Legendary Shack Shakers did indeed apparently drop trou and reveal a single ball (or maybe it was the whole package) at well-known all-ages Christian youth center Rcktwn during Friday night's show. How's that for a diddly-dong dangler of a dickwave, Daddy-O?

Supposedly, Rcktwn staff caught a salty whiff of the action and called the heat, and a warrant has been issued for Wilkes' arrest. Big tickle or a royal shaft?


According to an arrest warrant, the band's lead singer, Joshua D. Wilkes, was performing when one of the security guards saw him open up his pants and pull out his genitals.

Organizers said a few hundred teens and adults were in the audience.

"As soon as it happened, I think three of our security staff ran upstairs and said, 'This just happened. We have to call the authorities and get this taken care of,'" said Cissell.

Police have issued an arrest warrant but have not taken Wilkes into custody.

Tonight at Springwater: RTX w/Imaad Wasif

Posted By on Mon, Jun 30, 2008 at 3:41 PM

RTX W/IMAAD WASIF After dissolving Royal Trux, frontwoman Jennifer Herrema eventually formed RTX—a heavy, Camaro-rock version of the Trux. Grittier than her former band, RTX possess all the swagger and snarl of rock ’n’ roll excess but deliver straightforward bar-room jams. Opening is Los Angeles-based Imaad Wasif, formerly the touring second guitarist for Yeah Yeah Yeahs. His plaintive psychedelic-tinged folk serves as a nice counterpoint to RTX’s adrenaline-drenched joyride. 9 p.m. at Springwater —MATT SULLIVAN

Some Kind of Download

Posted By on Mon, Jun 30, 2008 at 10:25 AM

The new album by The Features, Some Kind of Salvation, is now available for download. Go to Amazon or Lala.

You can stream the whole thing at Lala, too.

Those who would rather play such a thing with the speed at 33 and one-third will have to wait, but nobody seems to know for how long.

See Out the Other for more info—it's Janet's post that tipped us off. (Same goes for We Own This Town.)

Update: Whoa there, kiddies. Looks like you're not supposed to download the album yet. Janet over at Out the Other explains why her post went missing yesterday: "I spoke to Rollum from The Features and apparently someone SERIOUSLY jumped the gun when this was released digitally, and it's going to be taken down ASAP (if it hasn't already)." As of this update, it hadn't been taken down at Lala, but I removed the links just the same. Mystery solved.

The Spin: Rancid @ Rcktwn

Posted By on Sat, Jun 28, 2008 at 1:43 AM

Apparently nothing bridges the generation gap quite like a good old-fashioned punk-rock show. ‘90s MTV punk-revival faves Rancid put in an appearance at Music City’s premiere all-ages club Rcktwn to a packed crowd that was, oddly enough, all ages. We considered having our moms drop us off just to get the full RCKTWN experience—and had we remembered how hellish it can be to try and park downtown on a weekend, we sure as hell would have.

NPR Hearts DND: De Novo Dahl on 'Second Stage'

Posted By on Fri, Jun 27, 2008 at 12:09 PM


And our music scene is "booming."

The outfits worn in De Novo Dahl's band photos are ridiculous, cartoonish, and over-the-top, matching the group's music perfectly. The rock quintet plays powerful, energetic songs that are fun and catchy as well as quirky and tongue-in-cheek. De Novo Dahl's second full-length album, Move Every Muscle, Make Every Sound, is anthemic and larger-than-life while maintaining a level of irony that keeps it from sounding trite.

The Spin is getting restless in our old age. We enjoy shows that start and finish on time with little deviation from standard live performance norms. Thursday night’s bill showed a 9 p.m. start time, which any avid concertgoer should interpret as 9:35 p.m. or later.

Inside sources are giving us stories of alleged on-tour fist fights and rumors of a potential break-up of local major-label teen punks Be Your Own Pet.

Their publicist says it isn't true, but did confirm that the band has just canceled their upcoming Warped Tour dates.

Anybody know anything we don't?
