 The Sam Bush Band took the stage Friday evening, October 8th, 2010, at the Courthouse Plaza in Lexington, KY performing as part of the city's Spotlight Lexington which coincided withThe Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games. The crowd greeted the designated "Father of Newgrass," and Kentucky Music Hall of Fame member, with a roaring welcome. Without hesitation, the show was under way as Bush, backed by a four piece band - banjoist Scott Vestal, guitarist Stephen Mougin, drummer Chris Brown and bassist Todd Parks, got right down to business and into the jams. The first hour was spent visiting hits, old and new, with "Ridin' That Bluegrass Train", "Blue Mountain", and even threw in a cover of Bob Marley's "One Love" for crowd pleasing good measure.

The second half of the show, Bush and company began to stretch out musically with a selection of songs possessing much more complex arrangements. Several of,  in…

First Photos: Johnny Depp in The Rum Diary | /Film

We have a look at the first two official production photos of Johnny Depp in The Rum Diary. In the film, Depp plays a doppelganger for the late Hunter S. Thompson for the second time (Terry Gilliam’s classic Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas being the first).
In Bruce Robinson’s new film, Depp plays Paul Kemp, “a freelance journalist who finds himself at a critical turning point in his life while writing for a run-down newspaper in the Caribbean. Paul is challenged on many levels as he tries to carve out a more secure niche for himself amidst a group of lost souls all bent on self-destruction.” The film co-stars Aaron Eckhart,Richard Jenkins, Amber Heard, and Giovanni Ribisi. Check out the first two production photos after the jump.

Thanks to FilmTotaal for e-mailing us the photos. The Rum Diary hits theaters sometime later this year.  via Finally. I had pretty much written off the possibility of this film actually ever becoming a reality. Truly one of my favorite books ev…

The Other Brothers - Live at The Kentucky Theater

The Other Brothers - Live at the KY Theater

The Other Brothers took the stage at The Kentucky Theater in Lexington, KY Thursday night 8/28/09, kicking off the 1st of this weekend's two shows promoting the release of their new album Heart Handcuffs. The 2nd of which is taking place tonight, Sat. 8/29, at The Fishtank.

As the band had previously announced, the formats of this weekend's shows would be as distinctly different as the two venues at which each would be held. Friday's show at The Kentucky Theater certainly adhered to that statement. Billed as a "live audience audio & video recording", the band performed a straight run through of the new album, with only a few extra songs thrown into the set, that clocked in at just a little over an hour. At the right price of free, there were certainly no complaints by any of the 100 or so in attendance. Not to mention, there was also the added bonus of seeing the first public performance of two songs on the record; "Last Chance Air" & "Cr…
