I wrote about this show for GRAMMY.com. My focus for the year in terms of live music is new stuff and bucket list bands. Morrissey and Patti Smith were both on my bucket list. Also, living in LA makes it possible for me to check something off my bucket list monthly. I am gonna be [...]
My piece about the show for GRAMMY.com I went to 5 shows in a row this week- something that I rarely do anymore- and they were all really good. But this one was one of those shows that I will remember and think about forever. For 6 years people have been saying to me that [...]
This year marked my fourth year covering GRAMMY week as part of the Recording Academy’s Community Blogger program. With last year’s GRAMMYs being the most social event of the year, the stakes were higher for our team this year. It’s been very cool to be a part of this ongoing effort to make an awards [...]

I am forever challenged to keep my writing about bands to their small word limit, and this show in particular I could have gone on gushing forever. It was cool to see opener Kill Devil Hill, featuring Rex Brown from Pantera and Vinnie [...]
It was Halloween, and I was Lydia Deetz: I’ve already written about this Lamb of God set for the GRAMMY site, but here are a few words and photos about the openers. Back in 2009, I used to write posts about new bands I found, and Sylosis was one of them. “Shares DNA with Lamb [...]
I wrote about The Darkness for the GRAMMY site…you can see the edited version of what’s below here. Haha. I’m standing at the front of Club Nokia shrouded in darkness. Thin Lizzy’s “The Boys are Back in Town” is blasting over the speakers. The lights go up, and 4 tall lanky British figures emerge on [...]
Caught In A Mosh: Mayhem Fest: Slipknot, Slayer, Motörhead, Anthrax @ Gexa Energy Pavillion Dallas, 7/10/12
You can find my show review on the GRAMMY site. On top of that, I’d like to crown Dallas, Texas with the award for scariest metal crowd I’ve encountered in a long time. More photos:
