Blitzen Trapper and Alela Diane @ the Black Cat, Monday Night
All tickets are general admission standing room only with limited bench seating available on a first come first served basis. Over the course of 15 years and seven full-length albums, Blitzen Trapper has crafted one of the more compelling and varied catalogs in contemporary rock and roll. It also follows something of a pattern. Then came American Goldwing. After that, VII.
Something else All Across This Land shares with Furr and American Goldwing: the fact that these new songs came quick, and in a very concentrated period of time.

Album reviews: Sarah Jarosz, Jonny Lang, Blitzen Trapper
This article originally appeared in The Drake. Though more than one million people visit this sparsely populated maze of islands in southeast Alaska every year, few venture out to the remote streams where, every summer, a seemingly limitless supply of wild salmon feed some of the highest densities of brown bears in the world. Everyone wants to see bears. Especially the coastal brown bear, the larger, better-fed version of the grizzly.
To get close, we board a floatplane in Juneau and head out to some of the best wild salmon streams in the world, where bears gather to feed. Inspired by the pilots who like to pump classic rock through the headsets, I came up with my own playlist for two twenty minute flights…and some tips from me to you for cruising around the Alaskan wilderness in search of wild bears.

The Portland, Ore. Unfortunately, the record came out during a time when precious indie-folk music was bubbling to the surface thanks in large part to a soundtrack from a certain New Jersey-based film. In , folk music had once again hit mainstream pop radio, and Blitzen Trapper was left in the dust. Lead singer Eric Earley wrote narrative-based songs that evoke the working class soot of Bruce Springsteen and the keen, steely gaze of Neil Young.
Earley and company leaned heavily on this new album, but still threw in some surprises during its sparsely attended Turner Hall Ballroom show on Tuesday night. The mercurial musical influences of Blitzen Trapper causes their live performances to sound like walking into a Tennessee bar, putting a 10 dollar bill in the jukebox and pressing the random button.
The set started raucous with “Rock and Roll Was Made For You ,” as Earley, in a sleeveless flannel shirt, sang with a country twang and hammered through a blistering closing solo. The mistake only seemed to enliven Earley, who took the opportunity to pay back the crowd by taking a few song requests. Skip to main content.

There’s a scene in Charles Portis’ “True Grit” that goes something like this: “With that, Quincy brought the bowie knife down on Moon’s cuffed hand and chopped off four fingers which flew up before my eyes like chips from a log. Moon screamed and a rifle ball shattered the lantern in front of me and struck Quincy in the neck, causing hot blood to spurt on my face. My thought was: I am better out of this. It provides him with the trappings of something bordering on the Biblical. Earley and the Trapper live in a pre-modern land of homesteaders and a land where people could easily go missing and never be found again.
They take us into this land of memorable characters living through such times that would never remember a worthless, faceless face – just another body behind some odor, some dirty hands and some scraggly limbs. They are prideful men, family men some of them, building their homes – enough for the wife and the brood – with their own hands, with the wood taken from trees that they felled themselves, with their words taken from cold, cold hangover-draggin’ mornings.
They are of wanderers from Wichita, Kansas, broken girls who are just found dead in lonely towns and in need of a pine box and some straw in their heads, after hard and short lives, masked by a ritual application of cheap perfume and stubbornness. There is an unbearable sadness that accompanies much of what they do, though there’s no denying that even in the perkiest of moments, the band is sweet on that sadness and never thinks of it as a cur.
They never want to outrun it, but are more interested in seeing what that sadness takes with its coffee and how it lies its head to rest at night. This is the sixth Daytrotter session for Blitzen Trapper, currently the most sessions of any one else on the planet. We are honored to call the fellows in this great band friends and hope they keep making special albums forever.
