Crowdfunding page set up to help Chuck Ragan’s parents after recent medical diagnosis

 If you’re a regular show-goer and frequenter of Dying Scene, it’s probably a safe bet that you’ve seen Chuck Ragan your fair of times through some combination of his stints with Hot Water Music or the Revival Tour or, more recently, alongside The Camaraderie. Ragan long ago established a well-earned reputation of being one of the genuine good guys in the scene; the kind that’ll push himself to the point of near exhaustion on stage for a full set before taking the time to shake hands and interact like old friends with each and every member of the crowd.

Today, sadly, the shirt-off-his-back, boots-off-his-feet Ragan and family put out a call to help one of their own. Chuck’s father, Dave Ragan (a former professional golfer), recently experienced a series of falls at his Birmingham, Alabama, home, and was hospitalized as a result. After a series of tests, it was determined that the Ragan family patriarch was diagnosed with a “massive meningioma brain tumor.” Chuck and family (including his four brothers and his mom, the beloved Geraldine) are now left with the decision to try to have the elder Ragan’s tumor operated on, or transition him to hospice care at home.

As a result of the difficult situation, an Indiegogo page has been set up with the goal of offsetting the costs of Dave Ragn’s care, and to help Geraldine out going forward. If you’ve got a few bucks to throw in the direction of the shirt-off-his-back, shoes-off-his-feet Ragan, you can do so right here.

Andrew Jackson Jihad shorten name to AJJ, stream new song “Now That I’m at the Top of My Game”

Andrew Jackson Jihad have announced that they are officially shortening their name to AJJ. Here’s an excerpt from the band’s Facebook post explaining the change:

“The two biggest reasons for this are:
1.) We are not Muslims, and as such, it is disrespectful and irresponsible for us to use the word jihad in our band’s name.
2.) We no longer wish to be a living reminder of president Andrew Jackson. Interesting historical figure as he was, he was an odious person and our fascination with him has grown stale.”

You can read the whole post here.

Meanwhile, the band have also shared a new song titled “Now That I’m at the Top of My Game.” The song will appear on the band’s upcoming studio album, and you can listen to it below. No other information has been released on the new album yet, but we’ll keep you posted.

AJJ last released Christmas Island on May 6, 2014 through SideOneDummy Records



DS Photo Gallery: Valentine’s Day Weekend with Chuck Ragan and Cory Branan

Chuck Ragan recently wrapped up a brief northeastern US tour a few days early due to an unfortunate family emergency. The jaunt, which was initially planned as nine shows in nine days, found Ragan supporting his latest release, the stellar-yet-mostly-under-the-radar soundtrack for the video game The Flame In The Flood. If you’ve known the privilege (and I use that word very deliberately) of catching the Hot Water Music co-frontman live over the last handful of years, you’ve no doubt been left in at least some modicum of awe at just how he’s able to relay such honest, hard-working intensity night in and night out. Because of the short distance between a couple of weekend shows on this run, Dying Scene was lucky enough to catch consecutive shows in Providence and Cambridge, each one unique in myriad ways.

As is par for the course in recent years, Ragan was accompanied by his backing band, The Camaraderie. However, even casual Ragan fans are aware that the parts that constitute The Camaraderie are somewhat fluid, this time featuring longtime collaborators Jon Gaunt (fiddle) and Joe Ginsburg (double bass) and more recent collaborator Todd Beene (pedal steel). In spite of the lack of traditional percussion this time out, the four-piece kept the hammer down, plowing through a pair of shows that saw pre-determined individual setlists serve merely as loose guidelines for the bulk of the respective sets.

Both nights found Ragan and pals drawing primarily from The Flame In The Flood soundtrack, as well as his two previous full-lengths, 2014′s Till Midnight and 2011′s Covering Ground (both released on SideOneDummy Records). Each night started and ended in four-piece fashion, with a brief solo, mostly spontaneous solo interlude. Night one (at the sold-out front room at Providence’s Fete nightclub, a venue that featured a soul band and an after-hours dance club also taking place down the hall, providing for an interesting mix of people watching) was slated to include the recent Hot Water Music staple “Drag My Body,” but found Ragan opting for audience requests like “Old Diesel” instead. Night two, at the larger Sinclair nightclub in Cambridge (editor’s note: best venue in the greater Boston area, and it’s not really even that close) was slated to feature the likes of HWM throwback track “God Deciding” but featured “Drag My Body” instead. Both nights saw Ragan firing on all proverbial cylinders, his powerful, vocal-chord-shredding voice serving as the most dynamic instrument to occupy either respective stage.

Serving as direct support on this particular run was the inimitable Cory Branan. Though Branan most notably performs as a solo acoustic act, to refer to him as merely a solo acoustic troubadour does a great disservice to the man’s unique talents. As Lucero’s Ben Nichols pointed out on that band’s track “Tears Don’t Matter Much,” Branan’s “got a way with words that’ll bring you to your knees,” and that’s regardless of the subject matter: love, death, drinking, escape, intimacy, drinking, career failures, meaningless sex, whatever (drinking)…you get the idea. When firing on all cylinders, Branan is witty and funny and edgy, and performs in such a way that gives the impression that the whole damn thing could go wildly, gloriously off the rails at any given second. Both of these nights had their share of such moments (with the Providence performance of set-closer “Girl Named Go” as the most telling example), but largely found Branan in a playful mode, telling stories and interacting with the crowd in a way he couldn’t quite do at the somewhat larger venues he played at when on tour with Brian Fallon a month prior.

Local support on the first night came from Cowboy and Lady, a country and western duo (Jess Powers and Tyler-James Kelly) who sound as though they could be based in Memphis, Tennessee, rather than West Providence, Rhode Island. Highly entertaining pair with deceptively tight melodies woven around Kelly’s at times near-virtuoso guitar playing. Sadly, there are no pictures of said duo in the gallery below. The Cambridge show, meanwhile, featured local support from longtime local scene veteran Mark Lind, most notably of Ducky Boys and Sinners & Saints and The Warning Shots fame. The Red bull aficionado and purveyor of only the sexiest of faces played a set mostly stripped down versions of his bands’ tracks, with a second-tier Rolling Stones’ cover thrown in for good measure because, really, why the hell not.

Thankfully, for your sake, there are pictures of Lind (and Branan and Ragan and Gaunt and Ginsberg and Beene, of course) in the gallery below; check it out here.
