Aug 08, 2012 1 Comment by

It was a much smaller venue then at their 25Th Anniversary show 7 years before (about 12,000 people less), but I’ve always been a big Tull fan and at least I could hear his stories on what influenced certain songs. And is was nice the see that Jethro Tull-2000’s Music Still holds up.Ian Anderson formed […]

Rock of Ages – Glee meets Metal

May 13, 2016 No Comments

What a great surprise this show was. It is completely like Glee meets Metal, or the other way around. The way they use the metal songs of the 80’s, particularly, the ballads was genius. Seeing Dee Snider brought back memories of growing up in Long Island and seeing Twister sister at Speaks in Island Park. […]

Don’t you wish you worked with me

by Jessica B. At the end of last year my boss negotiated some money for us to do a group bonding experience. We are four very different people, so we had some trouble coming up with something we would all want to do. One is a club hopping British woman. One is a Northshore “piker,” […]

30 Seconds to Mars

Mar 09, 2016 No Comments

By Pam Sunlitis In my opinion, the last couple years have been a very positive resurgence of alternative/punk music the likes I haven’t seen since the 80’s.  I got tickets to see 30 Seconds to Mars because I loved their latest CD, “This is War”.  I didn’t know much about the band at the time. […]

by Joseph Terrazas It was 93 degrees at 11:30 at night, but what an cool incredible time to see this progressive blues band. (Procol Harum ) opened up for them. Always known for their theatricality and long medleys, the whole band developed their own personal flamboyant costumes. A manic Anderson with  bushy hair and beard, dressed in […]

Odin Live at The Whisky

Feb 25, 2016 No Comments

by Sean W. What a weekend!  I am a huge Odin fan.  I love their debut Don’t Take No For An Answer and the subsequent albums all had some killer tunes on them.  When I found out in the Spring that Odin was doing a show, I had to go.  I’ve wanted to see them […]

Arcade Fire “still young, still hungry”

Feb 13, 2016 No Comments

by Matt Williams The moment I figured out how to find music on my own, I became an elitist. It’s not something I’m proud of, and I certainly deny it any chance I get, but when someone comes over to me and asks what I think of (insert band that grosses me out here), I […]

Beneath the stars in Florence

Feb 11, 2016 No Comments

by David Dunn The 11 September 2001 should have been a joyous occasion, memorable for the recording and simultaneous webcast of Sting’s new live album in Tuscany but events of that day in the United States meant that this could not be. The recording and webcasting of Sting’s new album had been planned for months. […]
