She’s got legs

Madonna at TD Banknorth Garden, October 15, 2008
Far from mellowing with age, Madonna hit us with wonderfully mean-spirited aggression wrapped up in a misleading sexual come-on.

Mad dissent

NYOIL at Northeastern
Few rappers practice what they teach, but Staten Island’s NYOIL — a former member of the early-’90s outfit the U.M.C.’s and current revolutionary rap stalwart — acts as loudly as he rhymes.

Soup to completely nuts

Rise Against at T.T. the Bear's, October 7, 2008
I half-expected Rise Against to play their obligatory hits for 20 minutes and say “goodnight”; instead, they tore it up for well over an hour.

Return of a band’s band

The Feelies at the Roxy, October 11, 2008
Like the Velvet Underground, the Feelies have had a greater impact on other bands than on a general audience.

Cen que fas après lo balèti?

Lo Còr de la Plana, Somerville Theatre, October 3, 2008
“Bon soir!” someone from the audience shouted as the six members of Lo Còr de la Plana took the Somerville Theatre stage last Friday.

No small feet

Night two of the Baltimore Round Robin
As a mob of scruffy Wham City fans and I mill around MassArt’s Pozen Center last Friday, the air is thick with excitement, as well as some pungent BO.

Saving The Past For Last

Robert Pollard’s Boston Spaceships at the Paradise, September 30, 2008
It’s refreshing that Pollard isn’t trying to rewrite the two-minute power pop of GbV’s heyday, and his relentless (and hyperprolific) pursuits are admirable.

Couple of Mavericks

The Dodos at the MFA, October 2, 2008
Whereas Sarah Palin spewed folksy, confused verbiage, the Dodos played endearingly folk-y music for a stuffed Remis Auditorium.

Fiend footage festival

“Feast Of Flesh VII” at the Coolidge
We’ve got a formidable line-up here: Banana Zombie and Housewife Zombie are joined Bike Courier Zombie, and a mangled-shirt-and-tails zombie Cannibal dubs “Dr. Teeth.”

Record reviewers

Meat Puppets, Dinosaur Jr, and Built to Spill at the Orpheum, September 27, 2008
The problem with these “play your most revered album in full” shows that everyone from Public Enemy to Liz Phair is doing lately is that the correct answer is not always a no-brainer.

Gag reflex

Ben Folds at the Orpheum, September 26, 2008
“You are in the elite first wave of people to hear this stuff,” Ben Folds told us Friday night with a smirk, possibly no longer able to be serious on stage after nearly two decades of tongue planted firmly in cheek.

Inner children

Boston Society of Spontaneity's MP3-EXP at Columbus Park
It sounded simple enough to participate in the mysterious MP3 Experience, an absurdist flash-mob event organized by the Boston Society of Spontaneity.

All Tomorrow’s Parties II

Edan at Kutshers Country Resort, Monticello, New York, September 19-21, 2008
At a festival like All Tomorrow’s Parties — a reminder of why so many of us entered the new millennium with tinnitus — an act like Edan might have seemed way out of place.

All Tomorrow's Parties: MBV

My Bloody Valentine at Kutshers Country Resort, Monticello, New York, September 19-21, 2008
If you thought that you could handle the band’sjangly rattle and strum, then you had to brace yourself for “You Made Me Realise,” which was interrupted by an excursion into bone-melting NOISE.

Roller-skate skinny

Struggling Chez Vous keeps it on the wheel
Sometime between the advent of rollerblades and the invention of those irksome Heelys, America forgot about roller-skating.
