LOCKN' 2016: Phil & Friends details, Chatting with Pete Shapiro, Garcia's Forest and More!
Nothing is really more spiritual than the first time listening through Terrapin, and that’s just how the gooball melts.   I gotta say though, I felt that same hopeful way  when I found out about the Grateful Dead reunion shows last year with Trey, and hands-down am even more excited about this upcoming LOCKN‘.  The...

Traces of Natalie Cressman:  Chainsaw Set to Tear the Roof off Tonic Room This Saturday 11/21
As a lady artist myself, I jump at the chance to support women in any way I can, and especially women in the arts.  But I wasn’t just excited about this Q & A opportunity because Natalie Cressman offers the feminine mystique alone, but because she’s a vibrant character, talented across so many facets of...

Oliver Wood on Paradise: The New Wood Brothers Album to be Showcased at The Vic this Saturday 11/7
Since the first time I heard the Wood Brothers a few years back, I’ve remained intrigued with each new release. Here’s these three guys, playin’ what could be bluegrass, but there’s no fiddles.  But it’s got that jazzy, fuzzy bass-y edge, too, you know? It also could be rock at times, and has a pretty...

Marco Benevento on Phish, Dreaming about The Duo & His New Album Laden with Vocals
It’s no secret that Marco Benevento has superior taste.  Over the years his sound has developed from a heavy, dark, and pulsating offering of eccentricity, into an elongated space, balanced with more sonic love, light, and wisdom.  Just as we all grow up and evolve in our feelings and life-living, it’s evident to me his...

Turbo Suit + Joel Cummins Forecasted to Meld the Musical Colors of the Rainbow at NCMF '15
Diverse, hometown music festivals like North Coast don’t typically stack up this phat and honestly it’s a blessing.  Labor day gives us that perfect stretch back into real life, only after experiencing some of that existential new-new with the homies over the summer.  But , one challege we’ve all faced in the trying times of...

The 6 Women in Songs Who are the Best Marriage Material: Day 3 of Women in Songs Theme Week

<strong>6. Sweet Caroline by Neil Diamond</strong><br><br>Sweet Caroline got the nod at #6 because the good times never seemed so good; any time a woman can bring you to your highest highs, you have to think about wife'ing her up. <br><br> With such  high praise, I knew they'd make a happy couple but then when Neil sang that his nights don't seem so lonely and that, "We fill it up with only two", I knew their relationship was going to last .
Day One: Tragic Figures Day Two: 10 Sexiest Women in Songs Today I’m tackling the subject of which women from songs who would make the best wife.

The 10 Sexiest Women in Songs: Women in Songs Theme Week Day 2

<strong>10. Mary Jane from Mary Jane's Last Dance by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers</strong><br><br> Being from Indiana, I am biased to her growing up in Indiana town with some Indiana boys on an Indiana night. But what's objectively awesome writing is that, "She moved down here at the age of 18, she blew the boys was more than they'd seen".<br><br><iframe width="420" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/aowSGxim_O8" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

7 Opinions of Mine That Usually Lead to an Argument

    1. As good as Kanye’s old music was, it’s hurtful to listen to it now because he is so weird.  He and his music went from so real and melodic to so fake and noisy. 2. Seinfeld (tv show) was good, but too whiny 3. Fantasy Football is lame. How ego-centric do you... Read more »
