But the singer-guitarist's solo material reveals a much wider range, both musically and emotionally. "Pipe Dreams are fun and careless and exciting," she tells the Weekly, "but ... these [new] songs are coming from that uncertain place — after death but before the next life begins, when everything is still unknown and you can either be totally overwhelmed or you can just take the next step." "Trouble" is saturated with thick layers of fuzz guitar that shroud Dee's vocals in a shoegazer hypnosis, while "Satellite" is a more jangling, indie-rock reverie filled with restless longing and yearning pop melodies. —Falling James EXPAND The Meat Puppets Joseph Cultice sat 4/6Meat PuppetsTHE TROUBADOURMeat Puppets have been through many changes since they tumbled out of … [Read more...] about 12 Best Music Shows This Week in L.A.

Photo: David SwansonJack White is sitting amid stacks of packages that are piled around his office inside Nashville’s Third Man Records. They tend to accumulate while he’s out on tour, he explains, and he’s only recently returned from a string of European dates. One of his first orders of business will be sorting through it all now that he’s back home.On this particular Thursday morning in October, White is clad in all black, filling the air with the smell of the cigarillos he’s known for smoking, with the disembodied head of a taxidermied giraffe looking on from nearby. White is all restless energy as he delves into topics like the record he’s currently working on with his recently reunited supergroup The Raconteurs, or a fellow industrious Michigander from the previous century, Henry Ford.“Probably about five years in with Third Man,” explains White, “I said, ‘It would be nice now to model this place on Ford Motor Company in … [Read more...] about Jack White on Vinyl, Nashville and 10 Years of Third Man Records
State Rep. Amber Mariano, R-Hudson, won her first election to the Florida House of Representatives two years ago in a squeaker over then-incumbent Amanda Murphy. On Tuesday, she was heading toward re-election in a no-doubt fashion over Democrat Linda Jack. "Have had great responses all day," Mariano said via text message from outside the Asbury United Methodist Church on Thys Road, New Port Richey. Mariano, 23, the daughter of Pasco County Commissioner Jack Mariano, said during the campaign her top legislative priority for 2019 would be a local bill allowing Pasco to finance canal dredging through higher boat registration fees. Jack, a veterinarian and former professional musician and music teacher, focused on a platform of better funding for public education, improved coastal quality and expanding health care coverage. The boat fee issues, Jack said, showed Mariano to be out of touch with more imperative issues confronting the west Paso district. During the campaign, she … [Read more...] about Florida House 36: Incumbent Amber Mariano takes big early lead over Linda Jack

The line-up includes artists that ruled in the ’90s and continued to flourish in the ’00s such as Stone Temple Pilots, 311, Everclear and Third Eye Blind. The show will also feature Riverside’s own Alien Ant Farm, which rose to fame in the early ’00s with a rockin’ cover of Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal,” and Neon Trees, a pop rock band that came up earlier this decade with the inescapable hit, “Animal.” Neon Trees hail from Provo, Utah, but actually got its start when childhood friends vocalist Tyler Glenn and guitarist Chris Allen … [Read more...] about Neon Trees talk new music, ’90s bands and ‘Kinky Boots’ ahead of playing Jack’s 13th Show in Irvine
