The End of the Road

SHOW #52: Around The Bend at Swallow Hill 12/13/12 So this is it internet. I’ve pulled it off. 52 shows in a year. Less than a year technically. I started the last week of January and now here we are mid December and I’ve completed my goal. 52 shows in a year. To be honest […]

Yay for Brave!

SHOW #51: Jonathan Coulton with John Roderick at The Soiled Dove on 11/28/12 Holy crap, Internet. It’s the penultimate show. The show immediately before the last show. The show to almost end all shows. For this one I ventured to a place I haven’t been this year and enjoyed the musical stylings of one Jonathan […]

Super Dillard Brothers

SHOW #49: Daniel Dillard with Josh Dillard at Lannie’s Clocktower Cabaret Once again before I get going I must make statements of disclosure. I’ve known Daniel Dillard for at least five years. We’ve never been much more than acquaintances and prior to last night I’d never heard him perform. Still I know that he’s a […]

The Joy of Calming Music

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 […]

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. […]
