Lessee here we’re all excited because although the Beastie Boys had to pull from being the maining attraction they got Jay-Z Big news? If you’re in Monterey maybe, if you’re in NYC and wanted to see Jay-Z it woulda been tough to miss him. With Lil Wayne at Izod, Mary J. at MSG to mention…

A REASONABLE PROPOSAL: EARLIER CONCERTS

By admin | August 1, 2009

In the 40s Frank Sinatra would play five sets a day at sold out houses beginning at 11am. Today most concerts, not even nightclubs, but concert halls, have the main act begin anywhere from nine to 1030pm. It is pathetic. Customers are paying $250 a tix and can’t stay till the end. Forget kids at…

Vivian Girls and These Are Powers at the Whitney July 31st, 2009: Hail the drummer

By admin | August 1, 2009

We come to praise Ali Koehle. Last night, the final of four Friday evening concerts this July presented as part of pop conceptual artist Dan Graham’s retrospective “Beyond” at the Whitney Museum Of American Art, Ms. Koehler was not the anchor of, ahem, alternative all girl rock band Vivian Girls, she was the sail and…

Where is David Bowie? He had a heart attack in 2004 and with the exception of playing a song last year with Arcade Fire has released no music nor played a gig in FIVE YEARS. FIVE YEARS MY HEAD HURTS A LOT. Cmon Mr. Jones we want you back!

Then (top) and now (bottom) Manic Street Preachers are one of the great English rock bands and they haven’t played the area in a decade. I saw em blow Oasis away at Jones Beach around fifteen years ago and have been a believer ever since. They will be at Webster Hall October 7th and you…

Madonna On the Record: Nobody’s Perfect

By admin | July 31, 2009

Madonna has remained a constant presense at the highest echelon’s of the pop firmament for decades: a wild ride from catholic School Princess gone bad to riding crop Mistress of the dancefloor. I have always simultaneously admiredher and been a little turned off by her. She is like a Swiss Watchmaker: obsessed with the intricacies…

FABOLOUS “LOSO’S WAY” HIP HOP AT ITS BEST

By admin | July 31, 2009

I loved the “Everything, Everyday, Everywhere” single off Fabolous’ new album “Loso’s Way” but thought it might have had a lot to do with Keri Hilson but the word is getting out and it is deafening. “Loso’s Way” is the album we never though Fabolous had in him. I just got a text from my…

Itunes Too Rich And Lazy To Accurately Label Songs

A coupla months ago Marie Lynn was fuming at itunes inability to accurately categorize the songs she downloaded. I thought nothing of it at the time but as time has gone by I’ve found myself agreeing with her more and more. Here is a list of pop-rock musical genre’s from the indie review web site…

Relator – Scarlett Johansson and Pete Yorn – I think this is the first Pete Yorn song I have consciously heard and I wish it was the first Scarlett Johansson because after the travesty that was her Tom Wait’s covers album “Anywhere I Lay My Head” it was my most sincere wish to never hear…

Dan Aquilante of the New York Post gets it wrong

By admin | July 30, 2009

Many years ago I was sitting one row above New York Post Pop muic beat writer Dan Aquilante at the Lauryn Hill “Misadventures’ concert. The seats weren’t great but they weren’t terrible either, center stage in the 200s at The Theatre At MSG, and this pussy made such a fuss I wanted to punch him.…

Beck’s Golden Age

By admin | July 29, 2009

In 96 I saw Beck at the start of the Odelay Tour in the tiny “Supper Club”. He was a bolt of lightening like a surfer dude James Brown chasing down his masterly hip hop-folk hybrid. I was a believer but since then, and despite some good stuff all along the way, he has failed…
