R.I.P. John Hughes, 1950-2009

Friday, August 7th, 2009

In addition to directing many classic 1980s films, John Hughes was also a brilliant writer.

A scene (set in St. Louis) from the 1983 National Lampoon’s Vacation, which he single-handedly wrote:

STACK SESSIONS: JEFF THE BROTHERHOOD

Wednesday, August 5th, 2009

Nashville’s JEFF The Brotherhood dominated Open Lot last Tuesday, alongside St. Louis’ very own Spelling Bee and Radical Sons. It was one of the best shows I’ve seen all summer, and I’m hoping they roll through town again soon (seriously, check out their myspace – I can’t quite place their sound but I’m pretty sure my co-MD would dig it. Thoughts, Dan?) Anyway, I sat down with bros Jake and Jamin after their set for a very entertaining, fairly drunken conversation about the Nashville scene, running a record label, and things we love and hate.

Check the interview HERE. Also, check out their label, Infinity Cat, for a taste of the Nashville sound.

STACK SESSIONS: LANGHORNE SLIM

Saturday, August 1st, 2009

Aaaand we’re back. Langhorne Slim played a sold-out show with Josh Ritter at Off Broadway this week, but before he took the stage he dropped by our humble station to lay down a few tracks. They’re all cuts from his new album “Be Set Free” – out September 29th on Kemado – and they’re acoustic. This, in itself, is pretty cool; Mr. Slim has filled out his sound with more instrumentation throughout the past few releases, and when you hear these songs on the album, they won’t sound quite like this (as is, they sound great). So whether you’re a fan of the newer stuff or the older stuff, you’ll probably dig these. Thanks again to Langhorne and crew for hanging out!
