Rearview Mirror – Postcard Elba

Rearview Mirror is our annual look back at the year in music from our friends in and around the business.  Musicians, managers, roadies, superfans, bloggers etc..

This year we’re upping the vanity aspect of it by sprinkling in our favorite posts of the past year, which you may have missed the first time around.  Our pick for May was one of our random trips outside of the Elba bunker to appreciate live music, and oh what a great trip it was when we caught a stripped down set from Samantha Crain at The Bishop.  Let’s enjoy it once more together.

Where the Bus Pass Took Us

While homebodies by nature, we do regularly muster the single malt courage to go out into the world and experience music in the flesh, and we document these excursions in Where the Bus Pass Took Us.

Last Thursday we were able to pop in to the Bishop to catch the Flannelgraph Records release party for The Holidays Don’t Have To Be So Rotten (Volume 2) and were able to capture one song by the FR all-star band on video before we got too eggnogged up.  Check the video and info on how to get the full album below.

Where the Internet Took Us

PE favorites, and the instigators of the greatest marquee advertisement for a show ever (see above), Throwing Stars are sadly calling it quits, but not before giving us two beautiful parting gifts.  The first is the Declaration EP, which you can preview in it’s streaming entirety here, and then a farewell show at which you will probably see us crying.  The waterworks happen October 29th at the Bishop.  More details here, and you can witness all of our previous TS love here.

Where the Bus Pass Took Us

Last night we made our way, as we often do, to The Bishop for libations and the best in live music.  Last night was special though as it was a live broadcast of the radio show Lazersaurus, with musical guests Community Currency, Ziona Riley and The Delicious.  We were able to capture a couple of vids before our camera died, which you can check out below.

Where the Bus Pass Took Us

While homebodies by nature, we do regularly muster the single malt courage to go out into the world and experience music in the flesh, and we document these excursions in Where the Bus Pass Took Us.

Last night we journeyed out to our favorite music venue in town, The Bishop, to catch Elba favorites Ha Ha Tonka, and as we were taught to share, we captured a few songs on video for your enjoyment.  Speaking of enjoyment, we enjoyed last night’s $3 pints special a little bit, and it shows in our camera work.  Our apologies.  For being so awesome.

Last night we found ourselves catching up with A Hawk and A Hacksaw as they played the Bishop with Dark Dark Dark and Pillars & Tongues.  A very minor emergency arose that caused us to leave before DDD took the stage, but we did manage to get three songs from AHAAHS for your enjoyment.

Last night we found ourselves back at Bloomington’s best venue, The Bishop, for another night of rock and roll via the Panic Strikes a Chord album release party – with Throwing Stars and Hard Candy Hearts.  We grabbed video of all three bands for your enjoyment, check them out below.

Where the Bus Pass Took Us

While homebodies by nature, we do regularly muster the single malt courage to go out into the world and experience music in the flesh, and we document these excursions in Where the Bus Pass Took Us.

Last night we caught Brooklyn’s The Woes, along with local stalwart Sam Lowry, as they came through town to The Bishop. Our camera was not as charged as we thought it was and so after shooting a couple of songs from the Lowry set we were only able to get one from The Woes, but we still wanted to share. Check them out below.
