Elysian Feel Lift the Shade

One Dylan refuses to be honored with a Nobel. Elysian Feel has two Dylans, and it’s hard to believe either would turn down the recognition. Drummer Dylan Seals and guitarist Dylan Kidd are transplants to New Orleans from Long Island and San Jose respectively, and they’re two-fifths of a band that along with Spence Bailey, Abner Deitle, and, Kendrick Magallanes, pulls together rock, hip-hop, electronica, Zappa, and jazz fusion bordering on Chicago (the band not the city).

The Breton Sound Is in the Front Row

[Update] When Foo Fighters performed in the front window of Preservation Hall, The Breton Sound’s Jonathan Pretus made it to the front row. Nola.com ran a photo of him, his wife Julia and his brother Brian from punk band Pears separated by a barrier and three feet from Dave Grohl, and the band’s recent EP makes his affection for the band clear.
