On YouTube: Punch Brothers: NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert

Amazing bluegrass with some classical elements. Fun all around — Douglas

On YouTube: Punch Brothers: NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert

Spoiler alert: The Punch Brothers came to the Tiny Desk on Chris Thile’s birthday. We made him a cake and gave him an NPR surprise! This wasn’t the first time the brilliant mandolinist had brought a project to my desk — it was his fourth. The last time was with his longtime band Nickel Creek, but also with his new braces. So the cake we presented here was inscribed “Brace Yourself Chris Happy Birthday.” He blew out the candles and then, along with this versatile and talented band, rocked our world.

Punch Brothers mixes the worlds of bluegrass, pop and classical. It’s a tough combination to imagine, an even harder one to make work, but this band of fiddler, Gabe Witcher, Noam Pikelny on banjo, guitarist Chris Eldridge and bassist Paul Kowert make the unimaginable contagious and fun. They push boundaries and make music like no one else.

On YouTube: Ninet: Tiny Desk Concert

Ninet tiny desk

Bob Boilen | March 3, 2017 — Ninet rocked the Tiny Desk in ways rarely seen.

As I watched one of the most famous entertainers in Israel today here at NPR, I flashed back to a 1976 concert I saw by a not-yet-famous Joan Jett. Ninet has that same fierce and honest conviction, is walking that same path that Jett did and poised to find notoriety in this country, which she recently began to call home.

Ninet won me over during a small concert at last year’s SXSW; it was early in the day, but she was fully on fire and intense. She and her potent band have put out five albums and their most recent, Paper Parachute, is the home of the songs she brought to us. It’s filled with a her husky-toned voice and guitar lines straight out of stateside ’70s rock, with a Middle Eastern lean. It’s a winning sound, performed by an unrestrained talent.

The cheapest price is now around $320 on Amazon, but there might be sales that lower it closer to the $200 mentioned in this video. — Douglas

I’m a little late to the 3D printing game, but I finally get it. For $200 , the Monoprice Mini Select is a no brainier for anyone who’s curious about 3D printing. It’s an extremely capable machine with a small footprint. Best of all it comes pre-assembled ready to print, right out of the box.  No this video was not sponsored in any way. I just really like this printer 🙂

March 12th, 2017 Comments off

I make time to watch Gardeners’ Word from the BBC any time I get the chance. They just started their 50th Season this week. One great segment they’ve added for this season is an interview with a major influence in gardening each episode. Garderners’ World is my brief respite from the “real world” each week. — Douglas
