  • Road Recovery 10th Anniversary @ Nokia Theatre, NYC 4/17/08
    When push comes to shove, I am a child of the 90’s. Sure, I was born in the early 80’s, but I think that was a decade of music that completely passed me by. For me, my musical enlightenment began…
  • West Coast is the Best Coast
    I thought I’d drop everyone a quick post to let you all know that LMB is now officially being represented on the West Coast by none other than yours truly. I just finished a four-day, 2,500 mile trek across…

    Even though Whit wrote about them a while back, I haven’t really followed the live music world as shown through the eyes of CONCERT.TV. They’re probably the biggest distribution channel out there right now (besides YouTube), considering they have cable…

    Our man down in Florida, Drew Gerlach, is back with another review from a Spoon show he saw last month. Drop him some comments if you agree or disagree with his assessments — Spoon live tends to be a topic…
