A Night with Shakey Graves at Charleston Music Hall

in Concerts by

I had an easy decision to make. I could ride with all my friends the two-hour drive to the beach for New Years on December 30th, or I could stay behind, go to the Shakey Graves concert solo, and then drive myself to the beach the next day. I made the right call. Like a…

Show Review: Phish- Swinging Dicks, Colorado Night 1 9/2/16

in Concerts/The Latest by

Believe it or not there’s a benefit to writing about music weeks after seeing it. Getting some distance from an event as well as re-listening to the music is valuable when evaluating a series of shows. Such is the case with Phish’s last concerts, a three night run over Labor Day weekend at Dicks Sporting…

Paul McCartney Rocks Washington, D.C. with 38 Songs, a Jimi Hendrix Cover, Storytelling, Lasers, and Fireballs

in Concerts by

I’ve seen many legends perform before. The concerts usually go like this: Play some hits early. Then play some new stuff mixed with mediocre old stuff. Finally, bring it home with a rocking encore of greatest hits. That wouldn’t even describe the warm up DJ, who spun up the crowd with some Beatles mashups that were funky and fresh. At…

Heart & Plugs Summer Shindig Concert Recap: Brave Baby & Susto Shine

in Concerts by

Jim Morrison once said, “I’ve always thought comparisons were useless and ugly. It is a short cut to thinking.” No offense to Mr. Mojo Risin, but I’m not on LSD (presently) and the best way I know to get friends and people excited about bands they’ve never heard of is to compare them to ones…

Concert Review: Dead & Company Add to the Summer Heat in Camden, NJ

in Concerts/Reviews/The Latest by

Perhaps my biggest musical regret in life is that I didn’t get into the Grateful Dead until my senior year of high school. Jerry Garcia passed away less than a year after I started devouring Dead tunes as fast as I could. At the time, I would scour Jack’s Music Shoppe in Red Bank, NJ, for any…

Concert Review: Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats – Charleston, SC

in Concerts by

To be honest, looking back at the last 48 hours, I’ve really been kicking myself for never having heard of Nathaniel Rateliff. Sure, I had heard their hit song “S.O.B” several times, but I never knew who sang it or what they were about. When I heard Nate Rateliff was playing a concert at America’s largest landscaped…

in Concerts by

Let’s briefly rewind the clock to March 25, 2016. My 68 year old mother texted me saying she really wanted to go to this show at the 9:30 Club on April 6, and could I help her get tickets. I hopped on 930.com to scroll down and see a band I had never heard of for tickets at $104…

in Concerts/The Latest by

Live rock n’ roll shows come in so many flavors: Indoor, Outdoor, Festivals, Arenas, football stadiums, house parties, dive bars, Red Rocks, the Pyramids, on and on. While I thoroughly enjoy the acoustics of arena and club shows, nothing beats seeing one of your favorite bands in an intimate venue no matter where it is. I…
