Apr 17 The Wonder Years Worcester Palladium MA Tuesday April 15 2014
Anyone singing along around me was on the verge of tears, and rightfully so. This band was making us feel something, and regardless of anything outside of the venue, we were all feeling it together.

Apr 17 New England Hardcore And Metal Fest This Weekend
I am always house proud when this event comes along. It’s great to see this event gain popularity and strength. This thing is run like clockwork rarely off time schedule (and by the way they actually give you the set times on their website!)

Apr 17 AC/DC – A Baker’s Dozen Done Dirt Cheap
Speaking of money, AC/DC’s Black Ice tour that started in 2008 and ended in 2010 grossed over $440 MILLION DOLLARS. This is, of course, the same amount of money that the United States military recently spent on inflatable balloon antennas.

Apr 17 Check Your State’s Music Preferences With This Interactive Map
According to the Movoto blog, music choices ‘aren’t just about music, they are about fashion, philosophy, lifestyle, too’… after all this is a real estate blog and they may want to use these data for other purposes, may be to sell more houses depending on people’s preferences for music?

Apr 17 Marshall Crenshaw’s “Red Wine” EP Reviewed
“Red Wine” is where the superstar falls to earth. It isn’t by any stretch of the language a stinker, and one song, a cover, is among his best moments on the album in segments exercise, still it isn’t the best of the EPS either.

Apr 17 Why Is Spin Magazine Constantly Writing About Courtney Love?
All these articles were published by Spin magazine, only this year. Has Spin magazine become Courtney Love’s personal diary or free promo-platform? Or is it really free? At one point a magazine stops doing journalism and become a kiss-ass rag for some declining and controversial rock figure?

Apr 17 US Top 10 Singles 4-26-14
Not one new entry in the top ten and the top seven are THE SAME AS LAST WEEK and except for Lil Jon and Onerepublica trading places, this is the exact same as last week!!!! BUT coming up soon, as I predicted the minute it was released, Ed Sheeran’s “Sing” will be rocking the charts all summer. Be afraid.

Apr 17 US Top 10 Albums 4-26-14
Yeah, no one is shocked that Pharrell is back at # 2 but what is shocking is how much it has sold: 29,000 copies. If all you are selling here is 29K maybe it isn’t really anything very much. Record sales appear to be coming to an end while the new musical equations are more like a polularity than a sales contest.

Apr 16 Rufus Wainwright At The Town Hall, Tuesday, April 15th, 2014, Reviewed
Well hold on one minute here Rufus: I already paid $100 for a ticket, why would I wanna spend more? And even if I did, why would I wanna be hustled all night about it? He’s like a stripper trying to get you into the champagne room

Apr 16 “Violet” At The Roundabout Theatre Reviewed
The score of Violet (music by Jeanne Tesori, book and lyrics by Brian Crawley) melds bluegrass, country, Memphis blues, and rousing gospel. The set design by David Zinn features the look of a mid-century rustic bus station, all in blues. The orchestra is onstage throughout the show

Apr 16 Conor Oberst Live At Gigstock Reviewed
It’s gorgeous and heartfelt, a slow ballad that’s heartbreaking and proves that the man still knows exactly how to play a song so that it tugs at your heartstrings. His guitar skills are phenomenal, and he seems to be more charismatic in his performance than usual.

Apr 16 In Music, Repetition Always Makes Things Better
I have more than once complained about certain music being too repetitive, ‘Music is about repetition’ answered me Iman a long time ago. Yes, he was right, and this new study demonstrates it even more. Dr. Elizabeth Margulis
, associate Professor at Peabody Conservatory of Music at Columbia University decided to do a simple experiment

Apr 16 Morrissey: “World Peace is None of Your Business” New Details!
Year of Refusal was a peach though, so I wont cry too hard. But with a lack of label, morons like Amanda Palmer offering advise and some odd and numerous health issues its a wonder there was any more to be had from the quiffed wizard.

Sting And Simon At MSG: A Second Opinion

A party in the Hampton

A party in the Hamptons

Paul Simon is reminiscent of carefree summers – outdoor parties in the Hamptons, late nights on the beach with good friends. Sting, on the other hand, is quiet nights at home, dinner parties – background music. Sting & Paul Simon scheduled to appear together. Great! Two talented entertainers worth experiencing LIVE at least once.

Introverted Kings Of Leon

Introverted Kings Of Leon

















Valentine’s Day and all you’d expect the audience to be a surfeit of twenty something second job guys shooting back shots of Southern Comfort and beer, puking on their best friends and passing out in the middle of “Down South” but you’d be wrong. Not many couples, that’s true, but a heck of a lot of girls together in groups, cursing the men who left them alone on the loneliest day of the year and dreaming about a physical relationship with the rehabbed and married Caleb Followill.

Back To School





















When Garry Trudeau went to Yale in 1965 he started a comic strip later to be named “Doonesbury” and in 1973 when he took the strip into syndication, he wrote about where his cartoon characters left Yale yet never left the college of the mind. Nearly exactly 30 years ago, Phish did the  same thing at the University of Vermont.  Phish have one theme, one song, one story: college and never ever leaving it.
