The Devil's Rejects

So, I’m a little behind times with this review, but hey, I’m the only one I know that likes a good horror film. But I can’t bring myself to see one in the theater by myself. If House of 1000 Corpses didn’t convince you that Rob Zombie can make a damn fine horror film, then […]

Bright Eyes @ Great American Music Hall, 3/9/07

It’s my birthday, and I’m going to see Bright Eyes for the third time. What better place to see him than the Great American Music Hall? The Conor Oberst I saw this night was a longer haired, more confident version of the one I had previously seen. Though it’s impossible to say that at the […]

SXSW Fantasy Schedule

In order to subside my jealousy for not being able to make it to SXSW this year, I’ve put together a fantasy schedule as a therapeutic venture. This is where I’d go. It involves a lot of running around, but that’s good. Work off the Mexican food, BBQ and beer, right? Wed., March 14 Brunch […]

27 Club

Having just turned 27 last Friday, I decided that it would be fitting to write about the infamous 27 club. The 27 club is not something that anyone wants to be a part of. Its members include some of the best musicians to ever grace our ears, who tragically died at age 27, while they […]

Army of Anyone @ Slim's, 2/24/07

When faced with the term ‘supergroup’, the level of expectation for a band skyrockets. So when I was emailed by Ticketbastard to let me know of this new band I might like, I was as giddy as a schoolgirl. Richard Patrick (NIN, Filter, The Damning Well), The DeLeo brothers, Robert and Dean (STP), and Ray […]

Mickey Avalon @ popscene, 2/22/07

Here comes the first of what I suspect will be many posts that are not technically hard rock music. I warned you in the first post. So read and believe- if you like hard rock, you might like this as well. I do. You know you really want to see someone perform when you drag […]

she wants revenge/brazilian girls @ The Regency Center, 2/10/07

“Are you guys here for the Camel event?” Oh no, not again! Another favorite band has been humped by the Camel? The first time I saw this was at The Faint/Rattattat at Mezzanine in December, where I almost bought a pack of Camels designed by the band for a keepsake. Almost. I don’t know if […]

I love rock 'n roll

The first song that I ever remember hearing was I Love Rock ‘N Roll, by Joan Jett and the Blackhearts. I remember dancing wildly around the room, in an outfit that I fashioned out of bandanas that I tied together. Too bad no one was there for a photo of that. I think I was […]
