Matisyahu | Boulder Theater | 10/8/14 | Review

Submitted by Philip Emma on Mon, 10/27/2014 - 10:30 am

I cannot believe that it has been almost a decade since I first saw Matisyahu perform “Close My Eyes” with his musical idol and mine, Trey Anastasio at Bonnaroo in 2005. After that joyous performance, I attended one of his concerts. And, in 2008, I saw him play at the Jammy Award Ceremony with Rose Hill Drive and his bandmates Aaron Dugan and Rob Marscher (formerly of 2001 Jammy nominees Addison Groove Project). They played a Flaming Lips song, and that night was one of my favorite moments in music.

Pearl Jam | Austin City Limits 2014

Submitted by Caitlin St. Pierre on Thu, 10/23/2014 - 1:34 pm

You know how our dads will turn us green with envy while casually mentioning seeing The Wailers or Led Zeppelin live?  Nope?  That’s just mine?  Well the disappointment and jealous expressions on my future children’s faces was what was playing and re-playing through my mind on Sunday night as Pearl Jam took the stage.

Phantogram | Austin City Limits 2014

Submitted by Caitlin St. Pierre on Thu, 10/23/2014 - 1:26 pm

Phantogram’s first song at their 5:00 slot on ACL’s Miller Lite stage was none other than the first song off their new album Voices, dropped earlier this year.  The time slot had to fight with simultaneous performances from Jenny Lewis and Chromeo, but looking at the crowd you wouldn’t have known.
