Have you ever been to a truly amazing concert and afterwards had trouble telling people why it was so amazing? The specific details fall away leaving only your adrenaline and your emotions. That’s why everyone wants pictures, to remember what happened. Most of the concerts I’ve ever been to have been fun—really, I can’t complain about any of them. I just have never danced as hard as I did on May 7th.
Ever since I was little, music was my greatest form of expression. I don’t mean singing or playing an instrument, I’m too tone-deaf for that. I mean I often express myself through what I listen to. I don’t just listen to music, I become part of it. It’s not just another form of entertainment to me.
Quick, name the first thing that pops into your head when I say The Grateful Dead. Let me guess, dirty hippies, stoners playing hacky sack, and old burnouts reliving the glory days of rock? Sure, when a band is that steeped in drug culture, all of that’s bound to come to mind. Do you know what you didn’t think of? The freaking music!
“Zero Day” is the newest video by MC Frontalot from the album of the same name. Both the video and song are a lot of fun.
I met Mike Phirman last night and it was awesome. I got to talk to him for a bit. Very nice guy and I was very happy to get to meet him in person!
“Jack Sparrow” is the brand new single from the brilliant and funny boys of The Lonely Island (featuring Michael Bolton), off their latest record Turtleneck and Chain.
I recently had the wonderful pleasure of interviewing Marian Call. I first discovered her awesome music when I saw w00tstock back on October 29th, 2010. She was super nice and I had a blast talking to her!
This show was on Friday July 30th, 2010 at the Nikon Theater at Jones Beach and it was phenomenal. Unfortunately I hit a ton of traffic on the way to the theater and missed most of Switchfoot.
So I’m going to see the Goo Goo Dolls on July 30th and plan to do a full review of the show this weekend. Until then I have a live video of when I saw the amazing AC/DC at Madison Square Garden back on November 18th, 2008. It was an amazing show. Angus had a eleven minute solo at one point . It ‘s one of the best live shows I’ve seen to date. Here is Hells Bells for your enjoyment.
