Hey kids…these guys are a lot more than CM Punk’s entrance music.

Can you believe that it’s been 25 years since the release of Living Colour’s debut “Vivid?” The pioneering band is still in fine form, as their recent performance in Boston can attest to.

After witnessing an excellent show this past weekend, it’s time to give props to turntablist/producer/musician/singer/Renaissance Man RJD2,

An Hour (& a Half) of Power (Pop) with Fountains of Wayne

I owe my love of Fountains of Wayne to a decision to go to Wendy’s. I was sitting in a booth, enjoying a late lunch one day, when “Hey Julie” came on the PA. Immediately taken with the song, I got back to my office, Googled the song lyrics and realized…I already owned it. “Welcome Interstate Managers”, the band’s third album, had found it’s way into my record collection several months before, and I’d never given it a truly thorough […]

Tom Tom Club Brings Their “Genius” to Boston

Observing the Uncaged Elephant

You don’t have to be animated to put on a good show. I mean, one of the best shows I’ve ever seen was Ray LaMontagne and he’s hardly what you’d consider animated (although he was much funnier than I thought he’d be).

This show was a fucking messy, sweaty, aggro rock show-a […]

A Tale of Two Shows: Citizen Cope & The Black Eyed Peas

After getting home last night from seeing the Black Eyed Peas perform, I had a thought (I know, strange right?). 8 years ago, it wouldn’t have been farfetched to see the Peas and Citizen Cope on the same bill. Back then, BEP was a crunchy, borderline-conscious “alternative” rap group and Cope was an upstart singer/songwriter. Flash forward 8 years, and the BEP are dance/pop behemoths with very little trace of the hip-hop flavor of their work pre-Fergie, while Cope is…the […]
