"Paulie, We Did It!" -- Winning With Paul Defiglia

"Paulie, We Did It!" -- Winning With Paul Defiglia
My first Avett Brothers show was at the House of Blues on a cold March night in 2010. We were pretty far back in the venue, so I was straining to see the four men on stage. They didn’t make it super difficult, as they were jumping and yelling, and bringing a level of energy... Read more »

May It Last: A Reflection Of The Avett Brothers

May It Last: A Reflection Of The Avett Brothers
I’ve been listening to the Avett Brothers since 2010. Not as long as some people, but long enough. I think seven years is a good amount of time to experience a band. I’ve been fortunate enough to get to see them a little over 25 times, as well. Again — I have friends who have... Read more »

Freaks and Geeks Revisited

Like many of the things I do, re-watching Freaks and Geeks doesn’t really make a lot of sense. It’s only one season long, and there’s lots of other things I’ve never even seen. Parenthood. House of Cards. The West Wing. Stranger Things. The OA. But, I found myself firing it up in spite of all... Read more »

No Hard Feelings in 2017

The Avett Brothers came out with a new album in 2016 — True Sadness. I wasn’t really sure what I thought of it at first. Some of the songs I had been hearing live for the past year and already loved. A few were going to grow on me fast, I could tell. There were... Read more »

I Still Remember How To Write

Honestly, I do. But doing those vlogs has been making me feel like I’m at least doing something here — letting me create content and express things without feeling as much pressure to expend energy with the writing. I am going to try and remember that I don’t have to crank out 1,000 words every... Read more »

A Long December, Indeed

Lyrics written by Adam Duritz I think Adam Duritz, and by proxy, the Counting Crows, are often an easy target for scorn and ridicule. People mock Duritz’s whiny tone and his penchant for maudlin melancholia. I have always had a soft spot for them, though, and “A Long December” has long held tenure as one... Read more »

Happy Birthday, Seth Avett

Happy Birthday, Seth Avett
I am a music lover. With many things in my life, I tend toward extremes. If I am in love with a band, I’ll see them repeatedly — as much as my pocketbook and schedule will allow. My current love is the eponymic entity The Avett Brothers. The people lending their name to the group... Read more »
