rollingstone:

There is a Spanish phrase that Omar Rodriguez-Lopez keeps in mind as he pushes forward with Bosnian Rainbows, his newest experimental rock band: con vivir. It is a motto not only for his new music, but for what he describes as a new way of living.

“In English, the only translation is ‘togetherness,’ but that doesn’t do it justice,” the guitarist tells us, as the band celebrates this week’s release of their debut album, Bosnian Rainbows. “It’s the essence of the chemistry that happens when people come together.” Check out the full interview with Omar and ...

The Candlebox show at Rams Head On Stage in Annapolis, MD gave fans the opportunity to see a rock band in a unique setting.  It is a small, intimate venue with seated tables, more conducive to a jazz trio than a five member rock band.  What could have been a drawback shaped a rare experience.  Fans got to watch the band close up and with a more direct connection.  Lead singer, Kevin Martin, used the intimacy to share stories about the the band and many of their songs.

The small space didn’t keep the band from playing with less intensity ...
