Re: “Amplified Anarchy

Love the spirit and fun of this crew, and frankly as a musician myself from years back, they sound pretty good, with strong vocals from Lux, good harmonizing, and importantly unique. Plus they take on that element that takes me back to classics like Django Reinhardt ... combined with some colourful lyrics, just alot of fun. Certainly would like to catch their show when they come here to Texas (Dallas), and do a posting on this crew on my journal/ blog. Wishing y'all a fun filled journey! - - Ranch Chimp Journal

Re: “Top 10(ish) Music Shows of 2018

Fun list. I'd add Pinback at the Volcanic. Such an underrated band with a solid Bend fanbase, and that was maybe their best show here ever IMO.

Re: “Need for Speed

Such a great show. What draws me the most to their music is their compositions that create subtext in their songs.

Re: “An Open Letter to Weird Al

I knew all the Bad Moon Rising lyrics by heart as a kid, but in college thought for sure Weird Al had written a parady of it! I always wondered why I couldnt remember the rest of the song. Just found out 20 years later, he never wrote it! Did he ever answer your letter? Love your idea for Who Let the outsounds like a movie!

Re: “Natalie Clark is Invading America

She's truly in her own lane with that jazzy voice and snazzy sound. When I first heard her I was blown away.

Re: “Protest Songs

May I suggest 'The Decline' by NOFX is more relevant to our current socio-political climate. Maybe 'The Idiots are Taking Over,' would be even more appropriate. Either way I hope that resistance finds itself back into our culture and we can find our moral spines to promote change. It would likely be better than apathy.

Re: “Protest Songs

Can music change the world? A few years ago I asked Pete Seeger that question. "I don't know about that," said Pete, "but the powers that be certainly think so. They have repressed song for centuries." There is power in song and the right song at the right time can bring about social change. Shameless plug: Source readers can hear songs of solidarity, resistance and revolution--from all genres and eras--on KPOV's Radical Songbook, 10 am to noon every Friday. Tune in 88.9 fm or stream it live (also on archives) at There is indeed a wave of new music from all kinds of performers and you can hear it locally starting this Friday, Tune in! --Michael Funke

Re: “Favor the Brave

The BEST decision I made in 2016 was to go see this band! They are so Damn good. I travel from Southern Oregon to Eugene to catch shows and NEVER miss a show in Grants Pass. They gain new, diverse, fans at each show, from all age groups. Treat yourself. Get out & enjoy the musical gift that is Fortunes Folly!

Re: “Picking with Friends

Useful Jenkins is a contemporary acoustic band with a bluegrass foundation. They use their grass-roots to readily tap into other genres such as folk, funk, rock, and hip hop. Their music generates emotion and sends a message to a wide range of listeners, giving them an eclectic group of followers from all walks of life. Useful Jenkins thrives on energy; they flourish in the moment and have an unmatched resonance with the crowd. The band is made up of 2 acoustic guitars (lead and rhythm), violin, cello, bass and mandolin. 4-part vocal harmonies accompany the wall of stringed instruments, leaving listeners with a strong, clean, and unique sound.


Formed as a 5 piece band in 2007, Useful Jenkins remained under-the-radar during their first few years performing. Open mics and campfire jams were their source of inspiration, which allowed them to form a strong and intimate bond between band members and fans alike. As their message grew, so did the network of friends who supported their direction. In February of 2009, the band released their first full-length album Fast Eddie which was the catalyst for their initial and continued success in the Midwest Festival Scene. Their second album, Festival Express, was released in September of 2012. It provided a more dynamic sound by capturing the raw bluegrass elements from the first album, and combining them with bowed string and brass instrumentation. In April of 2015 Useful Jenkins released their third full-length album, Forward Motion, which was a statement of how the band continues to move and grow.


The best way to experience Useful Jenkins is live in concert. Whether you are barefoot at a festival or standing in a theatre you will undoubtedly feel the pulse of their music, and leave the show with a smile on your face. Their songs are memorable and easy to relate to, leaving them stuck in your head long after the performance. So if you are a sucker for acoustic music with a strong message, do yourself a favor and go see a Useful Jenkins show. Its a moment you will not soon forget.
