Chelsea Wolfe, Eels (And Steve Perry) At The Orpheum, Wednesday June 11th 2014

By Alyson Camus | June 14, 2014

I have seen many incarnations of the Eels, and the one at the Orpheum on Wednesday night was a very lo-key, intimate and subtle one, with very quiet moments and people listening without making a noise, deeply submerged into Mark Oliver Everett’s son

Journey's Steve Perry Shows Up At Eels Concert At The Orpheum

By Alyson Camus | June 12, 2014

By Iman Lababedi | April 20, 2014

The Pains etc would get a lot further with me if they were either better or had a shorter name and Sebastian Bach? Keb Mo? Kelis? Eels? I am in wait and seek mode. Which leaves me with UK folkies To Kill A King, mostly because Cannibals With Cutlery is a great name for an album

Direct Currents Upcoming Releases 4-15 – 6-24-14

By Iman Lababedi | April 12, 2014

Anything interesting here? Lessee Afghan Whigs, Woods, Eels (Eel’s release too much music, you can never catch up), Rodney Crowell, G Love… Relax, I’m joking about G. Love, Margot & The Nuclear So and Sos, The Pains Of being Pure At Heart, Neil Young… Neil Young? Apparently.

Eels Announces 'The Cautionary Tales Of Mark Oliver Everett' With Single 'Agatha Chang'

By Alyson Camus | January 31, 2014

Who can remember the Eels’ last effort, ‘Wonderful, Glorious’? Not a very memorable one but it is possible that the prolific songwriter is back.
