Morning Teleportation Plays At JJ's Bohemia Sept. 9

Tuesday, August 29, 2017

Morning Teleportation is playing JJ's Bohemia on Sept. 9, touring on their new LP Salivating for Symbiosis out now on Glacial Pace.   

Review for Morning Teleportation: 

Morning Teleportation formed in 2005 when Tiger Merrit (vocals/guitar) moved from Chicago to Bowling Green, Ky. for college and met up with childhood friend Travis Goodwin (keyboards/saxophone/vocals).  From the beginning the band has been a roller coaster ride of Rock and Roll sound traveling in and out of psychedelia, indie rock and jazz. Most of the last few years has been spent either in the studio or on the road playing for crowds at Bonnaroo and Sasquatch and supporting the likes of The Flaming Lips, Cage The Elephant and Modest Mouse. 

To see the band perform live is to witness a cacophony of improvisational mayhem and melodic twist and turns. Merrit’s vocals dart sharply in and out of the hectic back beat that the rhythm section holds down.  The sound may be more modern but make no mistake, these are boys who want nothing more than to have a good time in the classic rock idiom. If they can make the crowd smile they can leave happy. 

Morning Teleportation is a house party, a futuristic hootenanny and a backroom jam session all rolled into one.

Here We Go Again With The Same Cummings Highway, 12th Street Flooding

Here we go again with the same pitiful news reports about the Cummings Highway Interstate interchange with I-24 - Flooding yet again after a heavy rain.  TDOT is derelict in not having repaired this years ago.  How hard is it to get some excavators out there to dig up the collapsed drainage pipes which TDOT says are the cause of the flooding and replace them with ...

Deal With The Graffiti Vandals

I travel to other neat old cities and don't see nearly the graffiti vandalism as in Chattanooga. Why do we allow one or two or three repeat vandals to mar our venerable Walnut Street Bridge, the pillars to the Holmberg Bridge, the remodeled Chief John Ross Market Street Bridge, the walls along our multi-million-dollar Riverwalk, our sidewalks, street signs and our old limestone ...
