Fear the Future

Well that was amazing. I do believe the St. Vincent “Fear the Future” tour is one for the history books. Provocative. Visually stark and powerful. And even though there were pre-recorded backing tracks, they were special to the event and every song was punctuated with amazing energy from the live performance by Annie Clark. Tip of […]


One of the benefits of posting about concerts is so I can search my history to remember when or where or IF I saw a band. I saw Joywave at this same joint two years ago with KOPPS when the place was half the size and the crowd was even smaller. Joywave seems to attract […]

Paul McCartney

Highlights of seeing Paul McCartney live: The songs. Man, talk about a catalog. It had to be hard just to cull a set list for this tour. Growing up I’d listen to my sister’s records of Revolver, Sgt.

Ben Frost created soundscapes that used some sort of super vibratey frequencies that rattled my hair follicles and clothing. If I knew how to meditate, I would have left the basement of the Contemporary Arts Center with renewed focus and inner […]


Chvrches brought synchronized LED lights and smoke machines to the Madison Theater in Covington Kentucky. Unfortunately the latter set off fire alarms and everyone had to exit to the street while the fire department sorted things out.

Ray Lamontagne

On my concert bucket list: Ray Lamontagne. I first heard this dude sing on Saturday Night Live of all places, which seemed a bit uncommon for their normal musical guest selections. Soulful and yearning, I was sold. When I saw his new album Supernova was hitting the stores I figured my chances would be good […]

Mindless Self Indulgence


Checked out Mountains performing at Mayday. My only issue with their set of drone music was that it was way too short. Joel was mesmerized by the computer board light fixture.
