Voodoo: Death from Above 1979 Faces Death by Angry Driver

Death From Above 1979 have a different narrative arc than most bands. The Toronto-based drum and bass duo that plays The Voodoo Music Experience’s Saturday at 4:30 p.m. on Le Ritual released an album, You’re a Woman, I’m a Machine in 2004 to critical and commercial acclaim, toured, and broke up.

Voodoo: New Quintron and Miss Pussycat, Foo Fighters on 60 Minutes, and MAKJ

[Updated] Quintron and Miss Pussycat have been busy.

Jazz Fest Preview: Alexis & the Samurai and Part-Time Samurais
