Concert Reviews

Concert Review: Galactic at Irving Plaza, NYC

For a bunch of nerdy-looking guys who appear as if they haven’t seen the sun in years, Galactic sure do make a joyful noise. Galactic plays highly danceable instrumental funk, but unlike some jam bands they don’t allow their songs to overstay their welcomes. They mix up their grooves and make each song its own funky little world. The packed ... Read More »

Concert Review: Badly Drawn Boy with Adem

Most of the reviews of Badly Drawn Boy’s latest album, One plus One is One have been pretty mediocre, at least relative to his other albums , but I can assure you that those reviews are wrong. Indeed, if one rushed to review this album, as I suspect many reviewers did, one might come to the conclusion that it was ... Read More »

CONCERT REVIEW: Badly Drawn Boy at the Avalon Hollywood

Badly Drawn rocker Damon Gough tosses off a few tunes (as well as tossing a beverage at an overeager fan) in Los Angeles. Read More »

Concert Review: Mostly Autumn

After this show, I found myself unable to listen to any other band's music for days afterwards. Read More »

Concert Review: Johnny Hi-Fi at Mercury Lounge, NYC

Johnny Hi-Fi and his fine band cranked out a tight set of melodic rock that brought to mind a slightly less crunchy, more lyrical Weezer. Read More »

Concert Review: Springsteen And Friends Hit The Motor City

This was a show that I found myself severely on the fence about going to see, even as a super-hardcore longtime Bruce fan. My friend Tony put it best in a couple of ways – one, he was upset at the amount of paperwork (political contribution form, etc) that you had to fill out to get tickets, and two, he ... Read More »

Concert Review: Lynch Mob

This past Friday night George Lynch returned to The Chance. This time he was playing with Lynch Mob, the last time he was here was back in March when he was playing with Yngwie Malmsteen. But before we could get to his performance, there were three opening acts to check out. I have seen all of them before and had ... Read More »

CONCERT REVIEW: Scissor Sisters at The Avalon

Let’s begin with the obvious: Jake Shears, lead singer of glam-phenomenom superband “Scissor Sisters” is way hot. He is a mick-jaggered edged-up bowie in skintight leather pants and velvet frocks. He looks like the wholesome boy next door AND the dirty fag who deflowers the boy next door on a lark. In short, he’s a rockstar and the first one ... Read More »

Concert Review: Rich Robinson

The other day I got a call from an old friend of mine. Turns out, she had come into possession of a pair of tickets to see Rich Robinson in concert. I had known the show was coming, but was kind of waffling as to whether or not I was going to go. Funny how a free ticket makes up ... Read More »

Keane Concert Review

I love Keane’s album. I love the fact that they can rock without guitars. So, I thought I would try it live at The Granada in Lawrence, KS. First off, I have to say that the lead singer’s voice is beautiful. I think one of my friends actually had tears in his eyes at one point. All in all, the ... Read More »
