On Tour

Sonya Kitchell with The Slip | The Higher Ground | 9.25.08

"The show is tonight, not tomorrow." A statement like this one can upend your day and, for me, it did. Mere inches away from walking onto the ferry that would take me back to New York; I fielded a call from my incredibly observant wife.

Sound Tribe Sector 9 Three Night Electro Extravaganza

September 4th, 2008, Boulder Theater

Family. Joyfulness. Community. Gettin' Down! These five words completely detail, although briefly, the majority of my experiences from the past Sound Tribe Sector 9 weekend.

Twiddle | Higher Ground | Burlington, VT | 9/12/08

Last week while reviewing the Backwoods Pondfest, I was fortunate enough to meet and talk to some of the members of the Rutland, VT band Twiddle.

The New Mastersounds Funk up the Fox Theater | 8/28/08

I'm blessed to have a solid group of friends who love live music, generally as much as me. There is little in life I find more enjoyable than watching close friends I've taken to a new group or artist turn and give me that look of excitement and say "Wow, you were right!

Rain Down On Me: EOTO @ The Mish

I realize more and more every day since the summer of 2008 started, that a sizeable number of people have never been to the Mishawaka Amphitheater, and a good portion of those that have never visited have never even heard about it. Gasp! It is becoming unfathomable to me that people have never heard of what most affectionately call The Mish.

My Morning Jacket Lands at Red Rocks

Few venues in the world are finer places to see live music than Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, Colorado.  On a clear summer night under a bright moon with a cool breeze, few places are finer to be, period.  It is a venue ideally suited to big sounds and bright lights, as both of these will inevitably play upon and dance between the sheer vertical red stone cliff faces.  True fans, and it doesn't matter of whom, show up early and tail gate in the parking lots, soaking up the sun and self-medicating themselves in prepara
