Old Times are New Again

SHOW #50: The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band with Trapper Schoepp & The Shades This was one of those shows where I didn’t know what to expect going in. My decision to go was very last minute and I only went because a friend of mine mentioned that he had really enjoyed The Reverend Peyton’s […]

The Joy of Calming Music

SHOW #48: Dark Dark Dark with Emily Wells and The Changing Colors Oh dear sweet internet. How have you been? I’ve been pretty fantastic, though I’ll readily admit that I’ve also been a bit lax. It’s been almost two weeks since my last post. What the heck is going on here? I think I may […]

Wrong Music for the Night

SHOW #40: Murder by Death with Ha Ha Tonka and The 4 On The Floor at The Bluebird on 8/16/12 I hadn’t expected to go to this show, in fact I was thinking that I might take the week off. Then I won tickets and, well, I can’t turn down free tickets when I’m on […]

Halfway There

SHOW #26: Langhorne Slim with HA HA Tonka at The Bluebird 6/6/12 This kind of snuck up on me. The halfway point. 26 shows down and 26 more to go. I had my doubts when I started this quest out but at this point it seems pretty likely that I’ll be able to pull this […]
