September 21-24 Nashville, TN Soundland Nashville has taken over the town with great new upcoming bands. I hope you got a chance to go out and hear some new music. I started out my day on Thursday by visiting a panel discussion at the Belcourt Theatre on the success of the band The Civil Wars. If you are not familiar with the group yet, please click on the link. They are on tour in Europe with Adele, who was quoted saying this is her favorite group live. The speakers included people from their record label, …tagsBeta 27Beta 57ACultsFoster The PeopleGroovesharkKSM353KSM42PSM 900SM57Soundland NashvilleThe Civil WarsUR2/KSM9

August 25, 2011 Chicago Theatre I had not received a copy of the new record yet, nor had I heard a song off of it. Sometimes, that is the best way to see a show – when you don’t know what is coming next. I am familiar with Susan’s and Derek’s work separately so I had a good feeling it would be a stellar project. From the first note till the end of their encore, I was carried back to a time before LED walls, before laser lights and pyro, when all that was on …

With less than 2 weeks away from the Modern Drummer Festival in New Jersey, I thought it would be great to open up a discussion on the various techniques people use to capture their drum sounds using Shure mics. I think this will also help to educate some people as to what choices are available (i.e. mics, drums, drum heads, etc) and what sounds they will get in making those choices. So here we go: I play drums and my drum kit of choice is Pearl. I have a Reference series kit with a 22 …tagsBeta 181/CBeta 27Beta 52ABeta 91ABeta 98AMPKSMKSM137microphone techniquesmiking drumsModern Drummer FestivalSM57

Part of my job that makes me giddy? Testing microphones before they go out. Every different model has its own individual tweak. I got a call from veteran studio engineer, Jef Moll, the week prior. Jef is someone I met here in Chicago years ago and he’s been moving ever onward and upward, finding himself in increasing demand as time marches forward. He’s also had an association with one of Chicago’s more successful bands of the past decade, Chevelle. They were working together again, this time to produce a live album and DVD: a ten-year …

Matt & Kim were coming to Chicago again, and this time I had no prior plans or obligations to stand in the way of finally meeting the dynamic duo from Brooklyn and partaking in the madness that is their live show. When I arrived to the Metro via the Shure mobile (of course), the line had already begun to take shape… it was an hour before the doors would even open. With the help of my trusty communication module, I made contact with Will People, front-of-house engineer, who came out to the front of the …

Last Saturday I ventured out to the Pitchfork Festival at the invite of someone I admire greatly, Jon Spencer. My admiration stems from his work ethic. He seems to constantly be working on something. He’s often his own tour manager. He’s often the driver. And if you’ve ever seen him in concert you probably know that he’s been infused with the most raw parts of the Spirit of Rock & Roll.
