The Village Voice 4Knots Music Festival

For the fourth consecutive year, the Village Voice 4Knots Music Festival took over the South Street Seaport in New York City for seven hours of music on July 12. This year’s set up was different from years past with a Front/Row Stage set up in the middle of Fulton Street and the main stage on Pier 16. Fit in around the reconstruction of South Street Seaport’s shopping and dining center (undergoing a complete overhaul through...

CMJ 2012: Artist Line-Up Announcement party

It’s about that time again folks! CMJ Music Marathon isn’t for another month but it’s definitely a time to get excited. Since the radio is dominated by pop music, it’s become hard to discover new bands or artists. Some would simply suggest a music recommendation service like Pandora or Spotify radio but it’s never really worked for me in the past. Just like in gaming, there isn’t simply one genre I fit into and it’s...

My Chemical Romance Burn Up Second New York Show

Hands raised, hundreds beckoned with chants of “M-C-R.”  Their thumps paid off as My Chemical Romance walked on stage for their second, sold-out New York City show Saturday night at Terminal 5, lighting up the impatient crowd with opener “Na Na Na.” “I have a theory,” said singer Gerard Way, midway through the band’s 17-song set. “If you play two nights in New York City, the second night is always the best.” It seemed as...

3OH!3, Inner Party System and The Chain Gang of 1974

Dance, Electronica, Rap.  Know where I’m going with this?  Me neither, but  Chain Gang of 1974, Inner Party System and 3OH!3 put on one hell of a show.  Sadly, the venue sucks but what can ya do? All the shenanigans took place on November 22nd at Steppin Out in Virginia Beach. The Chain Gang of 1974 blew away all previous notions I had prior to their show. I’ve heard of a lot of music but...

Lights In The Sky Over Red Rocks–NIN

I must admit that I am probably one of the biggest NIN geeks alive.  I get SOOO jacked up before a NIN show I can hardly contain myself……and I know I pester the shit out of my wife, family and co-workers for the few weeks leading up to the concert!  This was my 15th show to date and it was, by far, the absolute BEST one yet! Anyway, the wife agreed to attend the Red...

NOISETTES

NOISETTES

4.23.07  @ MERCURY LOUNGE It took a lot to separate me from the TV and a VH1 classic rewind of Damn Yankees last week. Tommy Shaw’s stonewashed man shorts and Ted Nugent’s kill it and grill it self were about to rope me in for a second time. Anyway, I managed to escape, and catch the Noisettes at the Mercury Lounge. It’s always exciting to see a band with your own eyes, as the “next...

GOOD THE BAD AND THE QUEEN

GOOD THE BAD AND THE QUEEN

3.12.07  @ Webster Hall OK let’s get one thing straight. Ex-Clash bassist Paul Simonon is the coolest guy ever! He even lights a cigarette better than anyone I’ve ever seen. He’s right out of a Godard film. Damon Albarn and his Bowery Boy top hat, led the charge along with Simonon and ex-Verve guitarist Simon Tong. Albarn’s collection of downtrodden yet somehow uplifting Dickens-like ballads captured the sold out room. The early 20th century carnivalesque...
