Every show starts with the ’70s! We’ll rediscover forgotten rockers, revisit unfairly maligned disco beats and replay power-pop favorites. Next: plenty of new releases, occasional live bands and more. Don’t let the nickname confuse you.

Believe it or not, Control Top is coming to Fort Wayne, in March, same night as Los Lobos. It will be a longer night than usual. May the gods be praised. Proper sacrifices are being arranged.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:57pm Handy Haversack:

Hey, nice, @SteveL. We are seeing them in Brooklyn March 5.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:57pm efd:

whoa, that's awesome Steve! They're really great live.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:57pm efd:

... Control Top, that is. Can't vouch for Los Lobos.
  10:00pm steveL:

Los Lobos is one of the greatest Bands I’ve ever seen. They’ll move your ass, and they’re all delightfully talented, highly skilled musicians. First saw them five years ago. Won’t miss them now.
  10:03pm steveL:

Very excited for Control Top. Could get frisky. Hope so!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:04pm efd:

Avatar 10:36pm herb.nyc:

Hi Evan and those who follow him and those who don't, I saw steve earle at pubic (sic) theater lobby today. I said to him "I just finished Amy Rigby memoirs and that made me think of her ex, will. And I see you. How is he doing?". "He's great, being a dad to his young girl while his wife teaches at UNC and brings in the money". Yay!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:43pm efd:

I always like to hear what Will is up to! He just finished up his time with the Peter Holsapple Combo last weekend too.
