2017 Wrap-Up: Top Live Shows of 2017

Completing graduate school in May 2017 was exciting for many reasons, but an increase in time away from the home office was one of the top. That additional freedom allowed me to get out and see more live music than I’ve witnessed in at least 4 years. Below is a list of my favorite live […]

LIVE REVIEW: Tame Imapala – St. Andrew’s Hall – Detroit – 3/7/13

While much of Tame Impala’s sophomore album Lonerism focuses on feelings of solitude and desolation, Kevin Parker and company were anything but alone at St. Andrew’s Hall on Thursday night. The downtown venue was overflowing with a sold out crowd and Parker remarked about the surprising sweltering heat on a chilly Detroit night. The Perth, […]

Showstopper ’11: Free Energy, Brad Paisley, The Features (2/9-2/12)

As if Girl Talk’s fiesta at Tabernacle wasn’t enough, 2011 is already looking like a stellar year for concerts. Last week continued the trend. It didn’t occur to me that cowboys and hipsters have something in common: flannel. 2/9/11 – Free Energy w/The Postelles – The Earl I’ve been on board with Free Energy’s brand […]

2010 Wrap-Up: Concerts of the Year

2010 was an unbelievable year for concerts this year. Not only did I attend more shows this year (10 shows, 1 festival), the quality of acts I witnessed were pretty amazing. Regrettably, I missed Arcade Fire and LCD Soundsystem, but I think I did quite well for myself. 8. Vonnegutt – Smith’s Old Bar -11/24/10 […]
