My daily grind as of late has been 10 to 12 hour days with single days off here and there. And usually those days off are coordinated as such to carry out a long-standing plan or obligation. I really haven't had a full day to just let loose and relax, let alone an evening of live music and dancing....
How fitting it was that Ken Hayes, the founder of Gathering Of The Vibes, took stage between acts on Saturday evening at the Deep Banana Blackout and Kung Fu show at The Capitol Theater in Port Chester in NY to announce the lineup for his 19 year old summer festival. Announcing in that forum makes sense considering that both...
Well, kids, the countdown has officially begun. The 18th Gathering of The Vibes is just under two weeks away. I am growing more excited with each hour that passes just thinking about all that is store for us at Bridgeport CT’s Seaside Park. Top five things I am most looking forward to? In no particular order: 1) Happy hour the...
What better way to come down from camping with your best friends during a three evening run of Phish @ SPAC than to step foot into the photo pit of two amazing rock bands?! The Joy Formidable came in to support The Black Keys this Tuesday in the good old Hart-beat (aka Hartford CT) and this girl was on...
This past weekend was the annual Dave Matthews Band two-night run in Hartford, and this year they came with support from The Head and the Heart. My brothers and I were not going to let ugly clouds and nonstop rain keep us from a good time. Pizzas were purchased, beers were on ice, snacks packed and the pop-up tents...
It was June of 2010 and I had made my way up to Burlington VT to clear my head and spend some time with an old friend. I walked into his apartment and there was a guy just chillin' out on his couch. What I didn’t know at the time is that my visit to this amazing city was...
They Heavy Pets, a South Florida group consisting of five strapping young lads, two guitars, a bass, the drums and some keys--oh, and a whole lot of funk--was a band I caught a few weeks back following their raging 4/20 show in Buffalo. Thankfully they managed to wrangle up some energy for a nice Sunday evening set in...
I don’t think it would come as a shock to anyone that follows my stories to know that live music is one of my most favorite forms of art. Unlike a painting, a photograph, a written work or even a studio album, it is a form that you really need to experience live to grasp the best understanding of...
Yesterday marked the arrival of RECORD STORE DAY 2013! What's Record Store Day, you ask? Well.... It's the day that many-a-music enthusiasts (aka music nerds) save up for, plan out for weeks and wake up extra early for. It's what has happened on the third Saturday of every April since 2007. It's the day that record stores rejoice in...
Recently, Snarky Puppy has been making their rounds and melting faces all across the land as they do it! Last evening was their second of a two-night run at The Mint in LA, and this CT-native girl was on vacation and there in person to see it all come to a close! With excitement beaming from their eyes, the...
