Sure, you’ll be a 100 miles away and sure you will have to sit through the dreaded Alicia Keys and almost as dreaded John Mayer to get there, but IT IS LITTLE STEVIE WONDER

Anyway, and no pressure here Mr. Lords and co, but the gig just can’t possibly live up to my expectations. So maybe it will be half as good!!! YES!!!!! Del Lords, man. October 10th at Sullivan Hall . Be there or be damned.
The music? Weak. Falling in Reverse started strong but ended up a hot mess reflecting the leaders instability. If it were not for his looks, I doubt they’d fill a house party.
He punches up always and he hits his target as often as not. Ask Hugo Boss who he slammed, accurately, as a Nazi collaborator while picking up an Award from the Hugo Boss Sponsored GQ event. They threw him out for that but at Town Hall on Thursday night he will be throwing down
The hope is he does the entire The Long Lost Story from one end to another and encores with some covers and new songs, that should be a 90 minute set and since all I got was 30 minutes last time I feel we are owed it!
Jay Z, Kanye and Justin Timberlake: everybody I saw this summer is back again this fall (actually next year in the case Of Hov) and I am gonna go and see em all again.
Lofty goal? Not really. The school is a massive success and on the cutting edge with their learning methods. With most of the funding coming from this annual event
The thing about QOTSA is they seem to be unable to play a riff without countering it with another one, everything is so complex it feels like showing off… and this from a guy who used to play with Screaming Trees
Now that we can no longer be Bon Iver fans, maybe it is time to turn our attention to Justin Vernon’s ambient wall of sound moody music Volcano Choir
It has been 18 years since Elfman hit a stage and he is headed to LA in celebration of Burtons films; the tribute is conducted by John Mauceri and features the 87-piece Hollywood Symphony Orchestra and the 45-member Page LA Choir, along with Elfman’s guest appearance.
New York duo Sleigh Bells just announced their third album by posting this video for the title song,… was anyone even aware they were ready for a new album? It follows their 2012 ‘Reign of Terror’, meaning these two never rest!
So despite Tomas being a great guitarist, songwriter, record producer, band leader and all round good guy as well as a true groove friend of mine (who namechecked me on Power Of Trinity… A Slight Return), he is also the last of the independents: he lives and breathes music and his music matters.
The first two singles are terrific but streaming it on NRP, it doesn’t sustain the same level of raucousness. Still, as a guy who never saw either Bikini Kill or Le Tigre, the Tuesday Bowery Ballroom gig is an event show
Nine Inch Nails has announced a surprise and super intimate show at the small club on September 3rd, and good luck if you want to get in! You can try to enter your info on the KROQ website, (the radio runs the contest) but if you win do not forget about me, since you get a pair
Whatever your feelings about Mick are, there is no doubting his true affinity for soul and blues (he called his first solo album Tribute to Bobby) and as for Van Morrison, this is the sound that he cut his teeth
She portrayed Velma in the before its time by 20 years 1975 “Chicago” production, she was Aurora in another underestimated Kander and Ebb musical, “Kiss Of The Spiderwoman” . Ny god, she followed “West Side Story” with “Bye Bye Birdie” and a little later on followed “Sweet Charity” with “Irma La Douce”. She has won the Tony 9 times.
The band just came off Warped so its just a month of rest before this new tour begins.. go get um.. Amen.
David Guetta? I’ve seen him twice. The first time opening for Black Eyed Peas and the other time at Jingle Ball. Both performances were great. And together they are the reason I am going to Electric Zoo’s EDM festival at Randall’s Island this Saturday
If they cover old folk songs well then so what and if they are writing new songs in the style of old songs, what are the chane of them being any good?
I wonder if Sheeran has the audience to fill 20,000 seats. Now, since he has joined The Voice as a mentor on Christina Aguilara’s team that might soon change, certainly it can’t hurt his public image, but can it help enough.
Amy Grant is the best selling Christian performer of all time, she is an AOR performer with a whole lotta heart, who went mainstream and then doubled back. With a fair to middling album to push, which includes a duet with her husband Vince Gill, Amy plays Irving Plaza on Friday.
How did Titus Andronicus go from just about my favorite band in the world to not just about my favorite band in the world? How is it possible?
Autumn is the best tour season, and this is going to be one of the best shows ever
Stockings and heels I am not expecting but if her current pix are anything to go by, that would be entirely her prerogative.
Their website calls the “family endorsed holograms’, hell, lets have them at holiday dinner!
Freedy Johnston is the poster boy for the singer songwriter who never quite got where he deserved to get.
They’re most known for their Halloween runs but its not like the guys sit on the back porch until the the leaves change
I may not be a fan of his music but he seems a cool dude and any fella who can flip his lid like he did on Apprentice is OK with me.
But with a new rhythm section? I don’t know man
According to the press release, it will look more like a carnival than your traditional music festival
They are playing Best Buy on Best Buy on December 17th, a Thursday but we will have to suck it up; take the day off school, God will understand
The excitement surrounding Alunageorge is tangible and there is nothing much more thrilling than a band on the verge of breaking the UK
If all you had on Saturday evening at the Lincoln Center was a Nick Lowe solo concert under the stars, it would be enough to maybe have the top pick for the week
It won’t be The Phantom Menace and definitely not Butch And Sundance: The Early Years but it will be a prequel!
Now I am not going to lie, if you thought their appearance was disturbing 35 years ago, you’re going to have nightmares now
We know it’ll be something special, and we aren’t being coy here — it’s just that we have about 26% of an idea of what the fuck we will be playing for you”
Colin is playing the Town Hall November 1st and will I make it? Only if I can get press listed and even then you gotta think it might be fairly painful
We got 21st century Jonathan who, no silly rabbit, is not gonna teach the Wiggles a thing or two
I cant decide if I love this or hate this but .. IS THAT CHEETAH CHROME!?!?!?!
There is something about the festival synth and horns that make every song into a party.
On Friday night Beyonces tour reaches Barclay Center? Diva or dynamite? You gotta to go to find out…
The diverse offerings are as intricate as the population of the Big Apple. Running from today July 24, through August 11th, and have I mentioned they’re free?
A unique style and a fabulous set of pipes, when the dynamic duo of Ryan Ross and Urie ended so did an innovative style that pop music so desperately needed.
These ‘rock and..” events seem to get more idiotic by the day. There has to be some sort of financial issue that causes the merging of music and events like cruises. A non stop party? A shared insurance liability?
I am either gonna blow it off entirely because I just know it is gonna suck or I am going to go and be disappointed
Loretta looks beautiful, stunningly beautiful what a warm event. Of course there is no way I would go in a million years but it seems just lovely
I am a futurist when it comes to music but no futurist in his right mind thinks we will get another Stevie Wonder. It absolutely has to be seen.
They are playing Death By Audio (a Brooklyn joint I’ve never been to) on August 9th and that’s it for the city but, if any show is worth a trip this one should be that.
JT at his worse is still pretty good and Jay-Z is better than he has been since American Gangster
While I expect Taylor Swift to have many more problems projecting at Metlife on Saturday, my money is on Taylor to pull it off.
