Deftones Best Buy Theater concert Review

May 16, 2011

Deftones>you.  Hands down, the best show of the year and probably better than all my other favorite shows ever, including Medeski, Rage(well maybe not rage), 311, Quest, De La, etc…  The production and quality of the Deftones live set is unmatched. Read the rest of this entry ?

Soundgarden announces tour

May 5, 2011

As cool as EZ really is. I will bet my entire life savings on Soundgarden providing a better live show.  Hands down,  rock shows are the top-tier of live performance music.  Cannot be matched.  Read the rest of this entry ?

Karma’s Army

April 27, 2011

I enjoy bands that haven’t reach major audiences yet because I can clearly listen to them without a bias.  Also I’m a fan of rock.  A group that I enjoy is Karma’s Army.  A New York based group founding on a solid pocket of rhythm and bass, strong guitar riffs and a singer who doesn’t sound like a pussy or every other  vocalist out there.

Queens of the Stone Age-Terminal 5

March 28, 2011

It’s Monday March 28th, approximately 10pm and my body feels like death.  I contribute this to Queens of the Stone Age rocking the fuck out of Terminal 5 in the greatest city in the world.  QOTSA played their self-title debut album in it’s entirety to promote the re-release of it earlier this month.  This show is a pure example of why rock shows will always out perform most genres.

Study Break-Soundgarden

March 25, 2011

Before Nirvana turned their punk sound into what people would later think is grunge, before Pearl Jam sold tickets NOT through ticketmaster, before Alice in Chains went into the flood again, there was Soundgarden.  Soundgarden were the perennial rockers of Seattle.  Led by the riffs of Kim Thayil, the insane rhythm section of Matt Cameron and Ben Sheperd(Yes , Hiro Yamaoto too) and the fearless vocals of Chris Cornell, Soundgarden helped transform a Seattle trend into the defining sounds of the early 90’s.  Everyone says Grunge died when Kurt Cobain blew his overrated, at certain times, brain all over a wall, but true fans of grunge knew it died when Soundgarden broke up in 1996.

Notable concerts to check out

February 17, 2011

So it is a beautiful day in New York today.  Got me thinking about some future concerts coming up.  Slightly Stoopid is finishing off their winter tourQueens of the Stone Age is hitting the road playing their entire self-title debut album.  Atmosphere is ready to tear it up with Ant being accompanied by a live band.  Soundgarden is writing new material meaning a tour will eventually come out of it.  Chris Cornell is touring tho, therefore you can get your “Outshine” fix on.  Lupe Fiasco is playing some sick shows.  I’ll be going to all the New York shows, but for those not in new york here are some links to see if anyone is coming to a town near you. I almost forgot, the Deftones will be ripping heads out in the near future as well.

Whiiite Stripes

February 2, 2011

The news of the White Stripes split, effective immediately with no 80’s style farewell tour planned, was abrupt and sardonically affected. Jack and Meg White’s philosophical and, hopefully, satirical take on the “life of music” will rub some people the wrong way for different reasons, but it is flawlessly pretentious and perfectly calculated. For an artist like Jack White (no shots at Meg but this was always Jack’s world) character play is just another day in the life.
