Blood, Sweat, and Tacos: Hanging with hardcore band In Defence
By David Hansen
"There's so many bands talking about sexism and racism and antiwar," says guitarist Tom Burt. "You can say that stuff and no one bats an eye. But try talking shit about pizza. It gets them out of their seat."
Nellie McKay on A Prairie Home Companion, politics, Doris Day
By Andrea Swensson
McKay will return to the Twin Cities to play the Dakota Jazz Club for two nights this week, where she will be backed by musicians from A Prairie Home Companion. We caught up with McKay a few weeks ago to get her take on working with Prairie Home, her history as a comedian, and combining politics with her art.
CD Review: Blackcloud Stallionheart, 2009
By Loren Green
"There are solo artists whose names appears on album covers even though a full band plays, and there are solo artists who make the songs their own, taking center stage and leaning on their own instrumentation and vocals to represent their work. Blackcloud Stallionheart, also known as Adam Burt (STNNNG, Total Fucking Blood, the Vets) is among the latter group."
