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.  In March we did a little series called SXSWland Tales, where we had friends in the biz who had gone to SXSW to send us a recap of their personal experiences.  There were a lot of great ones, but this one from Will Pepple (Tour Manager/Sound Guy for Matt & Kim, Mr. Heavenly, Diplo, Lucero, Murder by Death and about a thousand other bands) was our favorite.  Just a series of photos with minimal explanation gives a good feel for the blur that is SXSW.

This Austin recap comes from Will Pepple, tour manager, sound guy and all around party starter for bands such as Matt and Kim, Mr. Heavenly, Man Man, Diplo, Lucero and many others.  Will sent us a photo recap.  Check it out below.

2011 seems to be our year to keep thinking up awesome new segments, or at least hacky titles for fairly obvious segments we should have had all along.  This one falls in the latter, but you’ll still enjoy it.

Our new weekly segment is Talk Thursday To Me and it’s where we sit down and chat with one of our rock and roll friends.  Launching the series is the always entertaining Matt Armstrong from Murder by Death, as we discuss playing grabass with your bandmates, exploding vans and their upcoming tour.

Rearview Mirror – Will Pepple

He makes one of these faces when he makes love to a woman and the other face when he kills a man. We'll let you decide which.

The musical year in reviews keep trickling in from our rock and roll friends, and being the super laid back types who have never been completely sold on this whole “calendar year” thing we are happy to keep passing them on to you, the reader.

Today’s comes from Will Pepple, tour manager and sound-man for Mr. Heavenly, Matt and Kim, Amanda Blank, Murder by Death, Lucero, Deer Tick, Spank Rock, Diplo and for one magical week that surely changed the way Will thinks about life, love and music – Sam Lowry.

Will has created an amazing interactive list where you click the link and watch the words come to life with images.  Magic!
