Riverboat Gamblers: A Trolley Show

L.A. band performs 'What's What' on the MTS

By Ryan Bradford

 Riverboat Gamblers are like a cocktail made from all the best punk ingredients: the snarl of Ian MacKaye, the ragtag-team-like chaos of Black Lips and the snottiness fellow Angelenos, The Descendents. Even unplugged, these boys retain a ferocity that could incite a mini riot.

The Features: A Trolley Show

Tennessee band performs 'Content' on the MTS

By Ryan Bradford
Alt-country, or the sub-genre of country music that doesn’t sound like a stars 'n’ stripes-painted truck running over the Goo Goo Dolls, rarely possesses the visceral kick of the great, country forefathers.

Man Man: A Trolley Show

Honus Honus performs 'Deep Cover' on the MTS

By Ryan Bradford
If you’ve ever been a serious fan of Oingo Boingo, you’re probably familiar with their early days as The Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo, when their sound was closer to a circus troupe than a new wave band. Man Man, with their unorthodox instrumentation and zany live shows, are kind of like the modern day Mystic Knights.

California Wives: A Trolley Show

Chicago band performs 'Tokyo' on the MTS

By Ryan Bradford
In this episode of A Trolley Show, the Chicago band performs their song “Tokyo.” Even though the acoustic setting strips away the atmospherics found on their record, the group retains the dreaminess.

Donavon Frankenreiter: A Trolley Show

Professional surfer performs 'You' on the MTS

By Ryan Bradford
It probably shouldn’t come as a surprise that Donavon Frankenreiter is friends with Jack Johnson: They’re both surfers (Frankenreiter has surfed professionally), and both play the same style of mellow, sunburned soft-rock that makes tanned bros weepy.
