Nugs.net Add The Hold Steady, Ziggy Marley and More

RtBE can remember downloading random fun shows from nugs.net Free Stash back in the day. There were some killer Grateful Dead and Phish shows, plus a random sampling of Black Crowes, Robert Randolph and others. Now it has evolved into one of the best live streaming sites and more. 

Recently they announced the addition of three new acts who RtBE enjoys, The Hold Steady, Ziggy Marley and King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard

The site already has some amazing artists on it and is only growing larger and better with time and new artists. To celebrate, here are tunes from each of the new additions. 


Don Giovanni Records to Release Winterhawk Out of Print Discography

One of RtBE's favorite record labels Don Giovanni is releasing the 1970's Indigenous hard rock band Winterhawk's two album discography in a month. 

The band drew comparisons to KISS and Thin Lizzy back in the day and you can check out their tune "Custers Dyin" below.

Album Review: Ali Awan - Moon Mode

Ali Awan
Moon Mode
***and1/2 out of *****

The newest release from the Philadelphia, PA based Ali Awan falls between an EP and full length at six songs and while describing the length can be tricky, describing the musical goodness presented on Moon Mode is not. Awan delivers the slick rock goods with cool grooves, expressive experimentation and loads of indie pop flair. 

Opening with the title track Awan's relaxed vocals become breathy around a hip beat and laid back yet  pulsing low end supported in fairly straight ahead fashion before tape loops and a large expansive outro push the song into cosmic orbit. The hits keep coming as the percussion and bass driven "Dogs of Fire" has a light Beck flair while the hypnotic flowing "Sticky Sneakers" brings a Beatlesque feeling from the background to the swirling forefront. 

The best of the bunch just may be "Climb" which pushes indie pop to catchy heights with a great guitar riff and beat that could be used in multiple commercials with ease while getting stuck in your head for days. Less successful is the warbling "Run With You" which never breaks out into the jam hinted at dragging over the five minute run time. 

The brief record (or long EP) wraps up on a poppy stroll with "Cherry Pits", skipping and shuffling along with breezy ease to close. Ali Awan's knack for catchy sounds, relaxed delivery and odd flourishes make Moon Mode seem elegant and simple, a fun trick indeed.

Live Streams: Hurricane Ida Relief - Mashed Potato Records

For the last year live music was on lock down (like everything else in New York City). Live streams and old concerts have become essential for live music junkies like RtBE. Things are improving on the pandemic front in this city, but live streams will be an option for the foreseeable future. We will highlight various shows/streams/virtual events for your viewing and listening pleasure and as a way to help out the artists. You can always check out or weekly Full Show Friday series for concerts from the past and as always please support the artists any which way you can.

Today we highlight: Hurricane Ida Relief - Mashed Potato Records

Hurricane Ida wrecked major damage in Louisiana and help is still needed.  Mashed Potato Records is hosting a benefit tonight.  Even if you can't watch tonight you can donate to Feed the Second Line or any group doing vital work in the region. 


To get in the mood for the benefit tonight, here is some music from Dr. Kinsey, who will be performing.
