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 […]

Two Men Six Names

SHOW #46: William Elliott Whitmore with Randall Conrad Olinger at The Marquis Theater 10/4/12 Even though it felt a little awkward I stood exceptionally close for this show. Pretty much front and center. I had questioned this decision, which was obviously made before anyone showed up, because it just felt kind of strange standing there […]

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 […]

UMS Sunday

SHOW #37: UMS Sunday 7/22/12: You Me & Apollo, Paper Bird, Nathaniel Rateliff, Radical Knitting Circle, The Marrow, and Ezra Furman Sunday’s stay at the UMS was shorter than I would have liked. In the end it was probably good for my knee but I wouldn’t have minded getting down there a little earlier. The […]

UMS Saturday

SHOW #36: Under Ground Music Showcase Saturday 7/21/12: Miss America, Rachael Pollard, Joe Sampson, Snake Rattle Rattle Snake, and Overcasters I didn’t think this was going to happen. The Underground Music Showcase sounded like a great time but it was $40 at a time when I just didn’t have $40 to spend on a festival. […]

Raising Money and Lifting Hearts

SHOW #33: The Avett Brothers with City and Colour at Red Rocks on 6/29/12 I have to start this post out by giving mad props to both the Avett Brothers and their fans for raising over $20,000 for fire relief at the show last night. All they did was have a few volunteers carry boots […]
