Great, strange things come from great, strange things. Case in point: EOTO, the electronic music duo comprised of former String Cheese Incident drummers Michael Travis and Jason Hann. Hardly discouraged by the dissolution of SCI last summer, the pair converted their momentum with the world famous jam band into a cross-country tour as EOTO. The sound of their new act is only minimally Cheese-like - the main similarity involves the parallel hypnotic properties of rock-fueled jams (String Cheese) and endless dance club grooves (EOTO). In EOTO, Hann mans the drums, while Travis plays and loops a variety of instruments, from guitar to keys, with ample ambient techno flair (if you will). Dancers, start your glow sticks.

  • Kool Keith: Genius or Madman? Examining the evidence on a hip hop legend

    Exhibit A: Institutionalization You're crazy, not me.In the interest of public safety, we hereby present biographical information on Bronx-based hip hop MC and accused madman, Keith Thornton. The first exhibit in evidence: Reports that Thornton was once a psychiatric patient in the Bellevue mental hospital, New York, New York. Thornton denies the hospitalization, which reportedly took place shortly before the 1985 debut of his former rap group, Ultramagnetic MCs. He attempted to brush off the widespread reports of the event as mere products of the music industry rumor mill in a recent phone interview with the Source Weekly:

    Wilco Confirmed! Famous last words, right? Indeed, if Modest Mouse has taught us anything, it's that announcements of hugely awesome flannel shirt≠≠≠-related (we hereby declare a moratorium on the phrase "indie") bands playing shows at Les Schwab Amphitheater are best taken with a grain of salt.

  • Ye-eah! Fake Metallica tears up the pub

    just like the real thing, except in a much smaller stadium.In the spirit of fearlessly exploring the oft-scary phenomenon of tribute bands, Sound Check moseyed over to the Reed Pub Company last Saturday night to catch a face full of Motorbreath. Around a hundred souls were holding down the wee pub's peanut shell-sprinkled floor and spilling out into the smokers' patio outside when we showed up. Once the openers were done, the smoke machines had the joint socked in and the audience had had their fill of obnoxious Nickelback hits on the sound system, the main event started at darn near the stroke of midnight.
