Apr 19 Real Friends Worcester Palladium MA Tuesday April 15th 2014
It was the craziest crowd I’d seen in a really long time. The passion of the fans mixed with the energy and the thumping background music they had, it was intense and I was glad I wasn’t in the crowd because I would’ve been terrified

Apr 19 Carlene Carter At Amoeba, Wednesday April 16th 2013, Reviewed
At Amoeba, with the only help of her acoustic guitar and strong smoky voice, she played most of the songs alone, songs such as ‘Little Black Train’, Give Me The Roses’ – a song about how she wants to live her life, she added, ‘give me the roses while I am alive’.

Apr 19 The Greatest Generation World Tour At Best Buy Theater, Thursday, April 17th, 2014, Reviewed
This matters because it goes to the heart of this young, working class, personal well past solipsism rock band. Campbell’s poetics are works of imagery not metaphor. His words are so very very subjective and they are real acts of dramatic license

Apr 19 Best Songs with Different Titles: Part I
Inspiration can come at odd times. On one of my recent trips to Rock NYC Headquarter, Helen Bach and I got into a wee bit of legal trouble. It’s a long story that started with us…um…borrowing all of the money in the petty cash fund

Apr 19 Music To Torture With:The Red Hot Chili Peppers
There are songs that can dash me into fury just by their opening notes. Seriously, if you play “Insane in The Membrane” or anything by Cypress Hill I will rip your lungs out and leave you for dead.

Apr 19 Coldplay Unexpectedly Announce Super Intimate Dates
Coldplay is about to release a new album ‘Ghost Stories’ and a band like them usually embarks in a massive world tour, booking giant size arenas from Australia to Stockholm,… No such thing here, not even a festival headlining, just 6 dates in tiny places?

Apr 19 Glen Campbell And Alzheimer’s Disease
There is nothing they can do about; they can’t, or won’t, or it becomes fraught with difficulties and miscues, speak to their loved ones. “I love you daddy”, but where is daddy? What do the words mean to him?

Play “God Only Knows” At My Funeral – Fireworks – It doesn’t live up to its title, but, honestly what song could. Isn’t the name alone good enough. It is a beautiful smart pop punk masterpieces and one of the songs of the year – A

Apr 18 Modern Baseball, Worcester Palladium, MA, Tuesday, April 15th 2014 Reviewed
The sound was flawless and even with everyone singing along, you could make out all the little details of the song. Seeing it live made me appreciate it even more, and I never wanted their set to end

Apr 18 15 To 26% Of People Buying Music Don’t Listen To It
15% of people who do buy music on CD, vinyl or cassette tape, never plan on playing them! And this largely concerned the young people, among the 18-24 years old, 26% bought music without having the intention to play it… so all these vinyl purchases are just to decorate their bedroom shelves?

Apr 18 Candy Hearts, “I Miss You” Reviewed
The problem here is that Avril Lavigne was nearly 20 years ago and that school girl voice really has been done before. The shouting of “I Miss You” is the perfect lyric for the high school sophomore genre this band slot in to

Apr 18 Virtual Reality Is Gonna Take Over The World And It Starts Now
Look at eternity this way: our solar system has been around 4.5 Billion years and compared to eternity 4.5 Billion years is a blink of the eye. Does that give you a clue as to the time frame of eternal damnation in comparison not to eternity but to a blink of the eye of eternity?

Must See: Buddy Guy At BB Kings In June 2013

I don't see how Buddy Guy could be any better Friday night at MSG, I am not exaggerating when I call Buddy and BB King far and away the best thing about the Clapton Benefit. With 30 plus blues greats in the room, Guy came out on top with a blistering and brilliant set. When he stopped a jam mid song because there wasn't enough time, the entire audience gasped in disappointment.
