This Summer, Take A Pop Culture Road Trip!

July 8th, 2009 10:00am EDT
Field Of Dreams
During these hot summer months, nothing is quite as fun as jumping in your car, winding the windows down, turning the radio up, and hitting the blacktop in search of new adventures. Who's up for a road trip?

Now, before you fill up your tank, we should tell you that we're not talking about any old road trip. We're not talking about heading for the beach or the Grand Canyon. We're not talking about following the same itinerary that your parents did when you were just a kid sitting in the back of the family station wagon with no say in the matter.

Sure, the typical tourist spots are gr...

Laura Veirs With Liam Finn At The Earl, Atlanta, GA 5/18/08

May 28th, 2008 2:47pm EDT
Laura Veirs
For the passerby, Seattle's Laura Veirs may have sounded like an old Suzanne Vega cd spinning inside The Earl…or maybe one of a number of 80s female singer/songwriters accompanied only by a guitar. But this is 2008, and Laura Veirs is here and now. Her sound is fresh and original, and her guitar playing is marvelous. She does have a band - the Saltbreakers - which is also the name of her latest release (Nonesuch). For this stripped-down tour, though, she's going solo. And it fits her music. It's simple and melodic with discerning lyrics. Producer Tucker Martine (Decemberists, Bill Fr...

Suzanne Vega To Release 'Beauty & Crime' July 17

June 9th, 2007 4:00pm EDT
Suzanne Vega
Over 20 years into her storied career, singer Suzanne Vega shows that she remains one of the freshest voices in popular music today with the release of Beauty & Crime, her seventh album.

Revolving around the theme of New York, the city where Vega was raised and still lives, the 11 original songs on Beauty & Crime remind those of us who are old enough to remember "Tom's Diner" (complete with its myriad remixes) why we fell in love with Suzanne in the first place. For a younger generation, this new collection of songs fits in nicely among a the latest crop of artists (Feist, Sufjan Stev...
