04.06: Pizzanity! – Siberia
Just as the New Orleans music scene is undergoing something of an DIY renaissance, so too is the food scene. The last few years have been marked by a wide range of decidedly non-mainstream restaurant ventures such as food trucks, push carts, and pop-ups serving everything from burgers to bahn mi to tamales to tacos. This benefit for Pizza Delicious, kings of local underground cuisine, will rightly showcase some of the kings (and queens) of local underground music including seminal alt-country rockers Happy Talk Band, who spent the back half of 2011 fine tuning a slew of haunting new compositions while somehow continuing to improve the platonic ideal that is their visceral performance of a nearly flawless canon.
03.17: Soccer Team + Edie Sedgwick + I’m Fine + Opposable Thumbs – Siberia
The Dischord Records of now is virtually unrecognizable from the Dischord of the glorious eighties.

Dear members of the New Orleans City Council, When I moved to New Orleans in the beginning of 2008, after leaving a job in Minneapolis and a life largely spent in and the around the Chicagoland area, it didn’t take long for me to fall in love with almost every aspect of this majestic city. [...]
Jean-Eric + Weekends + Sweet Tooth + High In One Eye performing at Siberia on January 12, 2012
It should have been artlessly apparent to anyone who attended Siberia’s Saturday, October 15 showcase of California supergroup Off! and Brooklyn newcomers Cerebral Ballzy – bands who overwhelmingly appear to represent the heart of a new wave of tradition-burning and norm-ducking hard edged music – that it was a categorical smash success for every party [...]
08.19: The Hooten Hallers – Siberia
With an unconventional one guitarist/standing drummer arrangement and a drunken barroom sound that belies their impressive attention to musical nuance and melody, Missouri’s the Hooten Hallers is easily one of the most outrageous and revelatory live shows you can witness.
