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. We came back strong in October, with Editor’s temp job wrapped up and ChaCha on the mend, but it was still easy to pick our favorite post for that month. A bittersweet pick, this post, is full of video we shot from the final show of PE favorites Throwing Stars. A great band, pay your respects by checking out their tasty goodness one more time won’t you?

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.

This past Saturday we attended Throwing Stars final show/debut of their new music video.  We shot video of the show, snagged a copy of the music video for your enjoyment and scored a sweet deal for you.  All of which is 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

Rearview Mirror – Christian Rutledge

Cruelly mocking the peanut allergic.

The 2010 year in musical reviews continue to trickle in, and never let it be said that we don’t share our trickles.  Far from it.  Take our trickles, we insist.

Throwing Stars @ The Bluebird

Greater than our bitterness.

“Battle of the Bands” is a concept we do not care for.  We don’t like the idea that a wide array of wildly different styles of music can be judged against one another in any kind of logical manner.  Elliott Smith vs. Iron Maiden vs. Tom Waits vs. Public Enemy vs. Muddy Waters vs. The Clash.  Which one is the best?  Which one is better than all of the others?  Please be descriptive in your answer, and of course, show your work.
