Live Review: The Faint at Roseland Theater, 5/31

faint_13

Music
How does a band occupy its time in the decade following the release of a synth-rock milestone? In the case of Omaha’s the Faint, the answer involves mediocrity and laserbeams. Shitloads of laserbeams. I expected to be amongst a mass of shaking booties and spilled cocktails, but the light show had the crowd at the Roseland on Saturday in a near-epileptic state. No ambulances were dispatched ...   More

Live Review: Danny Brown at Roseland Theater, 5/11

erb_dannybrownweb5

Music
It’s been a while since I’ve seen a crowd so hyped to see an artist perform, but I’m guessing that’s the type of devotion that Detroit’s Danny Brown is used to these days. The kids packing the Roseland Theater this past Mother's Day were straight rowdy from the opening tip, pogoing in unison and shouting “Danny! Danny!” before the house lights turned low. Brown’s crew ...   More

Photo Review: Little Dragon & Unknown Mortal Orchestra at Roseland Theater, 4/10

erb-littledragon01

Music
Little Dragon is one of the most well put-together live bands out there, and the Swedish electro-soul quartet proved it last Thursday night at Roseland Theater. Overcoming a sound system that tragically consumed opener Unknown Mortal Orchestra whole, the band kicked off the 2014 Soul'd Out Music Festival with set of meticulously arranged, precisely played futurist R&B, drawn primarily from ...   More

Live Review: A$AP Rocky at Roseland Theater, Oct. 22

img_8444

Music
The sea of canvas bucket hats, military camo jackets and gold everything gathered at the Roseland Monday night was not for the Colombian cartel’s annual conference but for A$AP Rocky’s fourth West Coast stop on his LIVELOVEA$AP tour. The concert at the Roseland was as raucous as a hip-hop show should be, and the sold-out crowd was ecstatic to see three of 2012’s most explosive acts.  Openers ...   More

LIVE REVIEW (Updated): LCD Soundsystem, Saturday, May 29 @ Roseland Theater


Music
This weekend, LCD Soundsystem graced the stage twice in the Northwest—first at the Roseland on Saturday and then on the mainstage of the Sasquatch! festival on Sunday night. I was there for the Sasquatch! show, and the band sounded incredible: Seven musicians onstage, totally locked in sync, taking songs ostensibly created solely by leader James Murphy and turning them into living, breathing ...   More
