Post image for The New Bowie Album: The Next Day

It’s been a decade since we’ve heard new mystic tunes from David Bowie. This month his much awaited album The Next Day launched and it wasn’t a disappointment. His ability to write interesting, and un-obvious tunes doesn’t go away. The memorable riffs and melodies are still there. Bowie’s voice has changed slightly since we last heard him, but he still nails it. This is good, vital music, from a rock legend in his seventh decade.

Post image for Greetings From SXSW 2013!

Post image for Who To See At SXSW: Our Festival Playlist

Just a couple more days until I head down to sweet, sunny Austin for SXSW! If you’ve been to SXSW before or are going, then you probably know – it can be a little bit overwhelming. Trying to navigate a massive list of shows, artists playing multiple venues, and the endless parties can leave you feeling frazzled and anxious.  It’s important to go with one thing in mind: You won’t be able to see everything.

It’s still chilly here but I don’t care, my mind has turned fully to spring. And with spring comes a desire to listen to music that is happy, bright, and upbeat. Read more »

Post image for Bonnaroo Vs. Firefly: Which Lineup Wins?

This week, two more of the summer’s biggest festivals announced their lineups and we’re having a hard time deciding which one we like more!  Bonnaroo has always been one of my favorite festivals – I’ve been several times since the beginning, but I always kind of felt like the lineups were never as good as the first year that I went. Well, this year they outdid themselves and put together what may be one of the best lineups of the summer.  Firefly is a young festival, only in its second year, but they have put out a very impressive lineup, too.

I HOPE THAT DREW IMAGINATION WILL BE PERFORMING AT BONNAROO! PAUL MC CARTNEY IS A TRUE LEGEND. HE DESERVES TO BE HONORED AS HE IS AGING, BUT NOT FORGOTTEN!!

I'll be at both, though I do have to say I am disappointed (but not disappointed enough not to go lol).. No Phish at Bonaroo? No Umphreys? No cheese? AND NO FLAMING LIPS? and the headliner is mumford? how much more cliche could they have gotten? Also, I mean I'm as much of a Tom Petty fan as the next person... but I mean come on.. the headliner at BOTH firelfy and bonaroo? I almost feel like the line ups are too similar as well. However, I was given tickets so I'll be at both :) I think the real party is gonna be at forecastle, and i am sooooo excited!!! 3 NIGHTS OF CHEESE :D !! Also, I snagged early bird tix to Floyd Fest which I'm really excited for as the ambiance seems very different from the rest.. not so party party, more relaxed! And Phish just announced tour dates -- GORGE!! ahhh summer come quicker :) For the Philly folk.. my analogy was that Bonaroo is xpn, if Firefly is 104.5!

Hello there! This article couldn't be written any better! Looking at this post reminds me of my previous roommate! He constantly kept preaching about this. I most certainly will forward this information to him. Fairly certain he will have a good read. Thanks for sharing!
