concerts: slingshot cash @ local 506

The 506 has launched a new series, where 3 locals play sets at 3pm on a Sunday; this is a great idea, and this past Sunday Slingshot Cash played (with Smoothrays and the Stray Owls), and it was great. Also Trav finally identified specifically what it is that I am disliking when I say that…

slingshot cash house show

House shows can mean different things; on Saturday night, it meant a real stage on a lovely back patio, great food, good company.

concerts: slingshot cash @ the speakeasy

Slingshot Cash, latest lineup, played their first show at the Speakeasy in Carrboro last Thursday. They’re sounding damn good these days, and it was a pleasure to hear the way old songs get made new with new contributors, and all the new stuff, as well. You should go see them. Full set here.

slingshot cash — “too big to fail”

Last Friday, I was sitting at work sort of daydreaming and sort of staring at Occupy Herbstreit, and a song that the Cowboy had played for me over the summer slithered into my head. It was called “Too Big To Fail”, and it was something he’d written about the bank bailouts a couple of years…

rock me like a hurricane

I like to think that in 30 years, some 20-something woman will love my photos of the Cowboy the way that I love Elliot Landy’s photos of Rick Danko.

slingshot cash @ jessee’s

True story: I’m awfully fond of this man and his music (among an epic list of other things about him, of course). [Slingshot Cash — “We’ve Come Undone”]
