REVIEW: Over the Rhine @ the Triple Door (Seattle, WA – 11/17/12)

21st Nov 12 (Wed) 1 comment


How many times can you see a band and finally get tired of them?  I honestly can’t answer that question. After 50+ times seeing Over the Rhine over more than a decade, in various venues and cities and states, I’ll still drive 10 hours over a 30 hour period to go see them because they’re not playing anywhere closer.

I had seen Jeffrey Foucault in September at the Triple Door in downtown Seattle.  At that time, I had never been there, and after seeing the set-up, tasting the menu, and witnessing their light-show, I viewed their calendar and noted that they had the sole Over the Rhine show in the PacNW this fall.  I bought my OTR tickets via my iPhone during the Jeffrey Foucault intermission.

This show was billed as “An Acoustic Evening with Over the Rhine,” and it featured the husband-wife duo of Linford Detweiler (piano, guitars, vocals) and Karin Bergquist (vocals, guitars) with drums/percussive support from Nick Radina.

The set was heavily from The Long Surrender (the album from late 2010/early 2011, depending on how you got it).  That record is a gem; so I didn’t mind its heavy presence on Saturday.  They also threw in some new songs that should make their way onto their upcoming album, The Farm (GO HERE for more on how to support that 2013 album)…

Setlist: ~1 hr 45 mins

  • Born
  • All My Favorite People
  • The Laugh Of Recognition
  • Undamned
  • Sacred Ground [new song]
  • Earthbound Love Song (aka Johnny & June)
  • Gonna Let My Soul Catch My Body [new song]
  • The King Knows How
  • Suitcase
  • Blue Jean Sky [new song]
  • Favorite Time of Light
  • Let It Fall [new song]
  • Little Did I Know
  • Trouble
  • All I Need Is Everything
  • Encore: Rave On
  • Watching the Wheels [John Lennon]
  • Drunkard’s Prayer
  • Latter Days

As far as the new songs, “Sacred Ground” seems like a classic favorite already.  They debuted it last fall, and I loved it immediately.  The chorus doesn’t seem like a “tradition OTR song,” but it really works well with both Karin & Linford singing.  “Blue Jean Sky” had some nice imagery, as well as a repeated line of “kick ass beauty.”  The main set and encore cappers from Good Dog Bad Dog made me happy as well… all in all, another gorgeous evening by two of my favorite musical friends.

Help Over the Rhine make a record… or two!

13th Nov 12 (Tue) 1 comment

In late 2010, Over the Rhine asked their fans to help them pre-fund a record.  It wasn’t through Kickstarter or PledgeMusic, but it worked very similarly.  Different levels, different perks.  They got enough funds together and made The Long Surrender, an amazing record produced by Grammy-winning Joe Henry.  That record was one of my favorite albums of 2011.

Over the Rhine’s Linford Detweiler & Karin Bergquist

Well, they’re doing it again, and this time it’s not just for an upcoming album, it’s for TWO upcoming albums…

The Farm

Advance copy a month ahead of release, extra digital demos each month, a 180-gram double-gatefold vinyl, a signed poster, a special concert at their farm in the Cincinnati area in May 2013 (Memorial Day weekend), executive producer credits, plating a tree on their farm with your name on it, passes to all their shows (except for Cayamo or the train tours) through 2014, and a private concert.

Blood Oranges in the Snow

Their third holiday / Christmas album, Blood Oranges in the Snow, has options such as additional digital bonus tracks, a boxset with their previous stellar Christmas albums (Darkest Night of the Year & Snow Angels), a gift-giving set of extra copies, planting a tree on their farm with your name on it, and a private Christmas concert.  The expected release is holiday season 2013 (Nov/Dec?).  I hate Christmas music, but OTR’s Darkest Night of the Year is one of my favorite albums, period. So, they convert a bah-humbug like me into a lover of this season’s music.

Over the Rhine on The Portland Sessions

5th Jan 12 (Thu) 1 comment

Last November, Cincinnati-based folk-Americana band Over the Rhine stopped by Portland, Oregon.  Their show at the Aladdin Theater on 11/17 is recounted at my post HERE.

From the stage, singer Karin Bergquist mentioned that they had stopped by and recorded in-studio with The Portland SessionsTPS wasn’t up and running yet, but it is now posted… enjoy all 26 minutes!

They play “The King Knows How” (dedicated to Elvis), “Oh Yeah by the Way,” the new song that I’m unofficially calling “On The Sacred Ground,” the Good Dog Bad Dog classic “Latter Days,” and end it with a Q&A.

REVIEW: Over the Rhine @ Aladdin Theater (Portland, OR – 11/17/11)

20th Nov 11 (Sun) 4 comments


Prior to the show, we fought against the horrid Portland traffic, dodged rain and ducked into a fine meal at Portobello Trattoria, a creative vegetarian establishment that is fast becoming my new favorite SE Portland dinner spot.  Their cocktail list is impressive (apple-infused vodka ginger hot toddy), their bottle list is impressive (Russian River… yum), and their menu is the kind that is frustrating due to having too many things you want and one that a meat-eater wouldn’t even notice or care.  Check it out sometime.

After dinner, we got to the venue a little bit before the opener… we had a little bit of time to catch up with Kentucky-based friend / Over the Rhine photographer Bill Ivester.  He’s helping them out on this tour with merch and social media, and photography.  After briefly catching up, we found some seats for the opener…

The Milk Carton Kids were a fantastic guitar duo.  Based on their name, I was going in hoping it wasn’t going to be a repeat of “The Children’s Hour” opener for Over the Rhine a score ago.  Well, I was greatly pleased.  They played about a half hour set of mellower folk songs.  Fitting for fans of Paul Simon.  Excellent guitar chops and quite humorous between songs, as well.  They also have all of their recorded music available for free mp3 download (go here for free music).

Over the Rhine hit the stage at 9pm.  Karin & Linford had Nick Radina with them again on drums/percussion/cuatro, as well as a slide guitar player Jason Goforth.

The set seemed somewhat similar to last year’s tour, a lot of The Long Surrender tunes.  But this time, the album was officially out.  It was nice to hear those tunes more in a live setting.  I get thrown off that it’s technically a 2011 release, I think I’ve had it too long.  Anyway, it’s a beautiful record, and it’ll wind up somewhere at the top of the pile for 2011, for sure.

Setlist: 1 hour 45 mins

  • The Laugh Of Recognition
  • Rave On
  • Undamned
  • The King Knows How
  • Suitcase
  • I’m on a Roll
  • Infamous Love Song
  • Only God Can Save Us Now
  • Latter Days
  • “On The Sacred Ground” (new song, currently untitled)
  • Jesus in New Orleans
  • Trouble (with drum solo)
  • All My Favorite People
  • Encore: Hallelujah [Leonard Cohen]
  • Born
  • Drunkard’s Prayer

My favorite tunes of the night were “Trouble” and “Latter Days,” and the lead-in of “Laugh…” through “Undamned” is a great start to the show as well.  The new currently untitled song is great… it seemed quite poetic and moving.  Karin was about to give out a tentative title, then stopped.  I’ll go with “On the Sacred Ground” for now, but I doubt that’s it.  I wish I had more listens to digest it.

They’re wrapping up a few more dates this year, culminating in the annual Taft Theatre show in Cincinnati.  Catch ’em if you can!  Oh, Karin also mentioned that they recorded a Portland Session when they were here.  Keep an eye out on the Portland Session Vimeo & Facebook pages for that to be posted in the future (HERE NOW).

So, within one week, I’ll get to see Over the Rhine two times… it’s been since Sept 2007 since I’ve gotten a chance to see them.  Yesterday, they stopped by Los Angeles’ KTTV (a Fox affiliate), chatted and sang “The King Knows How” on Good Day LA.  Photos posted to Facebook by a fellow Orchard Apple/friend, Bill Ivester.  Video link after some of Bill’s shots…

VIDEO (opens in new window)

Three days until their Eugene show… woot! Oh, and for pre-orderers, the download links for The Long Surrender should be in your inbox from the band with the super secret URL and password.  If you miss it, the album will be out on 1/11/11.

Over the Rhine – The Long Surrender (virtual listening party)

7th Oct 10 (Thu) Leave a comment

So, Cincinnati folk-duo Over the Rhine has a new album coming out… it’s called The Long Surrender, and it comes out 1/11/11.  If you helped out with the pre-order campaign (mentioned back here and here), they are having a very special internet streaming listening party from Friday, October 8th at 6pm (PST) through Sunday, October 10th at 6pm (PST).

I’d post the link to the streaming-goodness… but I don’t want to get fired as a fan… again.

Look for a mini-review from me sometime next week.

Over the Rhine’s The Long Surrender (due 1/11/11)

12th Jul 10 (Mon) 1 comment

As posted on


Our immense thanks to all of you who helped make the new Over the Rhine record a reality. It’s been christened THE LONG SURRENDER and is currently being mastered.
Tentative release date: 1.11.11.

All those who contributed will receive THE LONG SURRENDER well before the official release date, with extras. Look for a complete (long, rambling) update letter next week with much more, but suffice it to say, for now, our experience with producer Joe Henry and his cast of conjurers was nothing short of incredible.

Can’t wait for you to take the ride/hear for yourself.

Perfect release date, if you ask me!

No, not a news post, just a post dedicated to one song.

After Johnny Cash‘s stunningly moving cover of Nine Inch Nails’ “Hurt,” it seems as if it’s being taken over by the scene.  Here’s a video of Over the Rhine (Karin Bergquist on vocals) with Kim Taylor singing background vocals:

[source: Bill Ivester, 3rd & Lindsley/Nashville, TN on 7/20/09]

I wonder if Trent even does this song anymore?  Seems like a rare occasion where a cover song trumps the original, and I think the Cash version will actually live on longer.

Here’s Johnny’s video of “Hurt”:

And, if you’re not tired of the song, here’s Georgia metal band Sevendust doing the Cash version:

And, if you need some “heavy” to wash out the country…

Here’s the Dillinger Escape Plan performing “Wish” with Trent/NIN down in Australia:

mini-REVIEW: Over the Rhine @ Doug Fir Lounge (Portland, OR – – 9/15/07)

16th Sep 07 (Sun) 2 comments

Great show last night (my 50th). Set not-unlike Seattle. “And Can it Ever Be” was great (don’t know how I missed that when glancing at the Seattle setlist). “Don’t Wait for Tom” also excellent (my fav of the night). “Ohio” was actually quite a good version, and I don’t really prefer that song… so something was up. Linford’s very walking/bouncy bass on “Orphan Girl” was cool… and he seemed to be having fun playing while standing up. smile.gif The venue (Doug Fir) is also neato. I was bummed because I missed The Album Leaf & Under Byen there in July, but it’s nice to know a great venue like that is only 1.5 to 2 hours away.

It relates to the Over the Rhine song “B.P.D.” on the 2-CD Ohio.

actually, Karin has gone into great lengths about
it. it truly means Border’s Panini Dijon. It was
a limited time release at their cafe, and apparently
she really loved the yummy sandwiches. when they
discontinued them, things got a little “heated” (to
say the least) between the band and several of the
cafe staff. Karin even asked for the recipe, but
Border’s non-compete clause with their employees
wouldn’t allow them to release the recipe… hence
this line:

I’d make it alright
But I wouldn’t get it right
I’m leavin’ it alone

the *real* kicker was how they were driving her to
a slow suicide “just one bite at a time.” she’s over
it now… that’s why the band keeps pimping “filet
mignon” in all of their interviews this album. if
things hadn’t gone south with Border’s, OtR would
have been pimping the BPD Meal Deal during all of
their interviews.

if you don’t believe me, well, there are still marks
on the walls by the espresso machine at the Tri-County

no, the real answer to your questions are: yes and yes.

TRIPLE-REVIEW: Tori Amos, Radiohead, Over the Rhine (3 cities in Ohio – – Aug 2003)

23rd Aug 03 (Sat) Leave a comment

(originally posted to the old Over the Rhine Actwin list)


Ohio is great for concerts… triple show review (8/24/2003)

Not every week do you get to see 3 of your Top 5 Artists.  This was one of those weeks for me…
Tori Amos, Radiohead, and Over the Rhine.

Here’s a triple review of OHIO shows this past week…

I. Tori Amos
II. Radiohead
III. Over the Rhine (bookstore show)

I. TORI AMOS & Marc Broussard
PromoWest Pavilion, Columbus, OH (just barely outside of downtown)
Wednesday, August 20th, 2003

HIGHLIGHTS: The opener was good.  Strong voice.  Tori was great… there were some technical problems partway through the set, but she handled it well.  Her dress ripped, too… the resulting song that came out of that one was great. :)  Song highlights were: Sweet Dreams (a Winter b-side), Mr Zebra, Caught a Lite Sneeze, Mary (another b-side), I Can’t See New York, Hey Jupiter, Bliss, A Sorta Fairytale, China, Liquid Diamonds, Girl, Precious Things, Space Dog, and Cornflake Girl… a lot of great tunes.  Plus a birthday number was fun, too… apparently this was her last show before turning 40.  She seems to be cool with that. :)  Hanging out in Columbus’ Short North was great the next day, too.  Magnolia Thunderpussy (awesome music selection), Monkeys Retreat (cool Simpsons collector stuff), and coffee for me; jewelry and art shops for Margarita… lots of glass in the Cow Town.  Seemed like the shops fancied it.  We some some excellent Chihuly pieces… my credit card wouldn’t handle purchasing them ($32k to start).  Oh, maybe next time.

BUMMER: Ben Folds not being there was the biggest bummer.  This was one of the two shows that he wasn’t going to co-headline.  I didn’t find that out until *after* I bought my tickets and booked the hotel.  Another bummer… she seemed to play too much from To Venus and Back (4-5 songs, ugh).  Oh well, she played enough other material to make up for it… :)

OVERALL: Great show… my 8th time seeing Tori, and the setlist was been vastly different every time.  That’s what I love about her touring… from day-to-day, it’s a different show.

II. RADIOHEAD & Steve Malkmus and the Jicks
Blossom Music Center, Cuyahoga Falls, OH (just outside of Akron)
Thursday, August 21st, 2003

HIGHLIGHTS: There There (with Ed on mini-drums and Jonny on mini-drums, keys, and guitar), Paranoid Android, Exit Music (For a Film), Lucky, Idioteque, Morning Bell, 2+2=5, Punchup at a Wedding, Wolf at the Door.  They seemed to stick with the newer stuff, which is fine.  But it seemed when they played any older stuff (Paranoid or Exit Music), that they were phenomenally tighter, and/or those songs lent themselves better to the live show.  The Kid A stuff didn’t seem to lend itself as well (it did last time – 2 years ago).  My favorite played was probably Paranoid Android.  We moved up to the right side of the lawn, away from the crowd, after about 5 songs.  We could see and hear (and breathe) way better.  A nice breeze cooling us off, comfy grass to sit on, a beauty on my arm, and a great band flaoting through the air… ’twas a good time.  Oh, and finally finding the only Indian restaurant in the Akron/Cuyahoga phone book was a blessing.
Different korma than our usual haunts (yummy as hell), and Strawberry Lassi (yum).

BUMMER: No My Iron Lung, Fake Plastic Trees, or Street Spirit (unless they had a 2nd encore that we missed)… also, the song “Kid A” was icky in the live performance (with a side of ICK sauce).  Steve Malkmus & the Jicks were quite boring and lame.  There were 2 or 3 Jicks’ songs near the middle-end that were *decent*.  That’s about it.  Oh, another bummer… Blossom’s parking is, like, miles and miles and miles from the venue.  A 30 minute walk post-show is a drain.   Oh, plus when we tried to check-in to our B&B at 3pm *no one* was there.  We walked in, and *no one*.  We eventually found a room with an A/C and napped until 5:30 until the proprietor finally showed up.  It was surreal, at best.  Quite disorganized B&B, but a KILLER house (O’Neill House in Akron) and a killer breakfast… yum.

OVERALL: Great lights, Thom’s a spaz, Jonny hates his guitar, Radiohead put on a great show again.

III. OVER THE RHINE and tons of books
Joseph-Beth Booksellers, Cincinnati, OH (just outside of Kentucky)
Saturday, August 23rd, 2003

HIGHLIGHTS: Hometown (Norwood) Boy, Suitcase, Anything At All, Show Me, Fever, Ohio, trivia break (Drew Vogel, aka D.V., won a framed poster), The Seahorse, and Summertime.  They also had What I’ll Remember Most, Changes Come, and Bothered on the setlist, but didn’t play them.  Suitcase was great.
Show Me was better than what I’d heard prior, and Fever was stunningly sexy (as usual).

BUMMER: I didn’t have my OHIO CDs from Paste yet.  I didn’t even have them by the time I got home late Saturday night.   I had K&L sign my Paste Order Confirmation email instead.  I crack myself up sometimes.

OVERALL: Great set, sound was a bit off, but it was a really fun time.  Song highlights were… all of ’em.  It was good to see them in a nice intimate bookstore venue.

My wife (Margarita) somehow puts up with all of the driving to concerts… yay, I picked a winner!  :)

They played a lot of new stuff and/or older stuff that they haven’t pulled out too often… the first set was shock full of the newer stuff, and the second stuff had some of the OtR staples…

It was a really good show overall… and it’d been since December since I’d seen OtR. Good stuff. Oh yeah, it was a three-piece (K&L and Jack). Nikki Buehrig opened.

Karin’s new hair-style…she needed to be wearing a big script “L” on her shirt. :) Sorry, but that’s just the first thing that came to my mind when they came on stage…

They played a tune that Bruce said that Jan’s been requesting forever (see setlist below), but they’ve never played it for her… so maybe their next Chicago show, you’ll luck out Jan…


SET 1-
When I Go (K&L)
I Let It Go
Show Me
Green Clouded-Tail Butterfly
If Nothing Else
It’s Never Quite What It Seems

SET 2-

Latter Days

Faithfully Dangerous
Go Down Easy

Somewhere in SET 2, Jack and Linford did a little jam session… I forget in between which songs. It was fun. As for SET 1, I don’t remember hearing “Cast Me Away;” so maybe they didn’t play it, or maybe I fell asleep…

The three new ones in a row Show/Green/Nothing were cool. Jack’s guitar tone on several of them were what Bruce referred to as “porno guitar.” Twas humourous. They were good songs anyway. The first two new songs at the beginning of the SET 1 were good, too… but kinda mellow. They were nice, though.

Ah… I think this show made up my mind that I’m gonna try to make it to the Sunday show in Columbus…

Have fun everybody at the Kent gig!!!
