The Dandy Warhols are 25? For serious? If you would have asked me back in mid-’90s, I would have said no chance. And how wrong I would have been. The Dandys have carved out a nice career for themselves, being smart about song placements for ads and video games, making friends in right places (they opened for David Bowie!), investing back into a home studio and most importantly, making a steady stream of their wonderful brand of oddball pop.

Flashback to more than 10 years ago, you could’ve caught me singing “L.E.S Artistes” by Santigold on repeat on my iPod — but that song came to life recently at The Fillmore Silver Spring. Santigold: 10 Years Golder Tour featured the full self-titled debut album for an eager crowd, ready to soak up the nostalgia feels of her album and other songs too.

As part of the first wave of Southern rock, Little Feat, which, ironically, formed in Los Angeles, made all-time classic music in the early ’70s. They blended rock and blues, country and R&B, blues and folk, jazz, gospel, and soul, all with a high level of skill and a jam band sensibility. And their talents were still evident in a very good show at the Warner Theatre recently.

Peter Murphy visited Baltimore Soundstage recently to celebrate his former gothic rock band Bauhaus with The Ruby Tour: 40 Years of Bauhaus. And he brought along his old Bauhaus bandmate David J. on bass in a rare reunion of Bauhaus players. Paivi Salonen captured the action!
