Rearview Mirror – Jeremy Brightbill

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 2011 recap comes to us from Jeremy Brightbill of Panic Strikes a Chord, and reminds us of how the real value of the arts is that it can help us trudge through slog that is our daily lives.  Also kittens.  Kittens help too.

Rearview Mirror – Jared Thompson

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..

Jared Thompson is perhaps best known for being, along with his wife Dayna and their son Max, owner of The Comedy Attic. But before becoming a comedy empresario, Jared fronted the hardcore band The Witchcraft Season and was an independent promoter of rock & roll shows.  He remains an impassioned music supporter and as seen above, occasional Live Band Karaoke contestant.  Check out his picks for the best of 2011 below.

Once again we found ourselves at the Comedy Attic for their music and comedy variety show It Still Bleeds, where we caught performances by Buffalojump, Emily Brown and Chilly Cheel for your enjoyment.

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.

As we’ve mentioned before, we’re not posting much, and we apologize for that.  Editor got a new job that’s sucking up all of his time and ChaCha underwent major surgery (she’s fine, thanks for asking) and the combination of the two has put PE in the slow lane of late.  But we’ll keep bringing you the good stuff when we can, and this is no exception.  Editor attended the comedy and music variety show known as It Still Bleeds last night at The Comedy Attic and caught video of all the musical performers:  Heinous Orca rocking out as the house band, and Jason Evans Groth and EA Strother each playing two brand new never before heard songs.  All of which is below the jump.

This Day in Music History – Jon Hancuff on Ian Curtis
