Yesterday, Sean, Joe Brown, and I came up to Dallas for the first of our shoots for a Live Nation/Sears project.  We set up under a tent at the Superpages.com Center, the site of the Jack Johnson show.  Little did we know that we would end up having front row views for an impromptu jam [Continue]

The Arcade Fire Post

The Arcade Fire Post

It’s entirely possible that everyone might already be tired of hearing about the two new Arcade Fire singles (particularly if you’re on Twitter, where I’ve personally tweeted about it no less than 7 times in the past two days), but guess what?  I’m going to write about it anyway.  Arcade Fire is one of my [Continue]

ACL Lineup: Reaction

ACL Lineup: Reaction

The beans have been spilled and the ACL lineup has now been out for 10 hours, giving the most opinionated of us something to complain/gloat about this morning.  Much like the gal in the picture, early morning reactions have been decidedly mixed. So, let’s play this game…I’ve decided to split things up into the prestigious [Continue]

Reviews: SXSW Part 1 (Tuesday 3/16 and Wednesday 3/17)

Because I was working during SXSW, I didn’t make it to quite as many showcases as I would have liked.  Still, I saw quite a few bands and attended a bunch of parties during the week and I thought the easiest way to handle reviewing everything would be in time order. I’ll be dividing the [Continue]

Preview: Weeks in Review

Alright, so now that the hard work of SXSW partying has ended, it’s time to move on to the self-mandated work of blogging about the experience.  Hey, if I don’t blog about what I did/saw/drank/ate during the completely insane past two weeks, then what would dozens of people bored out of their minds at work [Continue]
