Famous Dave’s was pushing capacity limits Friday night for Alex Crankshaft Larson’s CD release party. The band is rocking and fun. The sort of band that gets people on the dancefloor – lots of people, some of whom look like they might be more accustomed to being on a Harley than tripping the light. It’s a party atmosphere, a very welcoming party. Continue reading

This is their first full length album, called “Better Days”. The release show is tonight – 12/14 at the 7th St. Entry.

The release show for their new album VHS, I am sure will be off the hook.

Deleter keeps tearing it up, with it’s post punk, indie rock slant. A release show not to be missed, and a new album that should be listened to, again and again.

After the unimaginably tragic loss of his son Daniel to suicide in 2012, Levy managed to carry on by becoming a beacon of support and guidance for families experiencing similar tragedies. As stated by Bill Grey of People Incorporated earlier in the evening, Levy has helped countless others cope by speaking out with his own story, and by writing music to help us all connect with each other. Last night, Adam and friends treated the Cedar to the entirety of the record, all translated beautifully from studio to stage. Continue reading
