Nov 24 Ryan Adams At Hammerstein Ballroom, Saturday, November 22nd, 2014, Reviewed
“Cold Roses” was glorious country folk, “Dear Chicago” blues pop, “The Door” as great as anything in his repertoire, “Lucky Now” a case made for Ashes And Fire… the set less had momentum and more was steadily perfect with horrendous interruptions

Nov 24 Listen To ‘In My Head’, A New Song By Brooklyn-Based Blue & Gold
‘Musically, we captured that with some heavy sounds and a lot of noise. I wrote the song last summer, and when I brought it to the band, it really came to life. I think the end product encompasses the impatience, unrequited feelings, and heartbreak in the lyrics.’

Nov 24 Hear, My Friends : David Brouillette’s Five Songs
Johnny Sincere – Deadbeat Poets – Nice rock and roller, old fashioned in a positive way. The piano, when it comes out of the mix from time to time is very Jamey Johnson. A clever one song rock opera takes you back to 1963 and keeps you there – B+

Nov 24 That Was The Week That Was: November 17th, 2014
We lost the great director Mike Nichols, the man behind “The Graduate”, “Carnal Knowledge” and “Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf” at the movies and just two I really loved from Broadway “The Play That I wrote” and “Spamalot”. David Ruffin, the temptations lead singer’s kid brother and Motown singer who had a smash with “What Becomes Of The Broken Hearted” also died . On a personal level, rock nyc’s Edward Huerta wife Misty died at the age of forty

Nov 24 UK Top 10 Albums: 11-30-14
I have no problem with 1D selling a mindboggling 142K units, I have a problem with the UK’s penchant for lousy faux-opera like this abysmal album in at # 10. what they like about it, I can’t tell you. I blame BBC 4. Don’t let the eyelashes fool ya, Jenkins is the spawn of Satan

Nov 24 UK Top 10 Singles: 11-30-14
I have two songs this year I’d include in the “A++ List” -one is “Blank Space”. But at the top? This insanely lousy song should be taken out and shot and dawn. Turn it off and listen to Chipmunk contemporary Wretch 32, the excellent rapper from the London projects.

Closest Thing To You I’m Gonna Find – Butch Walker – Walker’s best song was also the best song by anyone Saturday night, a lost love song wrapped in the glow of geography with a killer guitar break and a very smart lyric – A

Nov 23 Blink 182’s Tom DeLonge Compares Streaming Music To Killing Elephants?
‘I tell people condoning streaming is like condoning the Chinese that are killing elephants for their tusks and carving ivory statues. It’s cool to put on your shelf but if you really think about what you’re doing it sucks’

Nov 23 Anne Husick’s “The Other” Side Reviewed

Nov 23 Dave Grohl On Arctic Monkeys And Smoking Pot While Watching The Kardashians
I’ll see a young band like them become that popular and think, ‘Please God, don’t let them self-destruct’. Because it happens, you know. But they seem like a band of brothers. Those four dudes seem like they’re doing really well and will be for a while.’

I saw her live many years ago, like that, and she has pipes on her like nobodies business though always hurt by weak material. This could be the one though the first single “I Deserve It” while good -yes, that is Missy elliott could be bette

Nov 23 Let’s Active: rock nyc Concert Picks week of November 24th, 2014
The setlist concentrates on the past 15 years to the exclusion of the golden age. Also interestingly enough, I couldn’t care less. In my opinion, Dylan has never had a fallow period but even so, this has been an incredible late period for the poet laureate on the 20th and 21st century.

After some members of the Transgendered community we upset by m characterization of Laura Jane Grace as a not believable woman, the community got upset. Stephanie Elliott Lowther, a transgendered woman and sometime rock nyc contributor came to my defense but with the current controversy over Bradley Manning now being a woman named Chelsea Manning, better to spend the next 38 years in prison (they expect her out in eight years) I thought I’d return to the question.

(rock nyc editor Iman Lababedi wrote in a review of Transgender punk rocker lead singer of Against Me: “To say Laura Jane Grace is an unconvincing looking woman is to understate state the case” and also “It is one thing to want to be a woman, it is another to not really look in the slightest like a woman” and the Transgender Community was deeply insulted.  See original review here.  We asked rock nyc’s Stephanie Elliott Lowther , a transgendered woman, to respond to the complaints)
