Ben Harper | Walt Disney Concert Hall | 11/18/13

I  remember the first song I ever heard by Ben Harper. I was a freshman in college, making new friends and discovering a semblance of independence. I participated in several student run organizations, and one of them was a vocal ensemble. A buddy of mine in the group invited me to hang with him andContinue reading “Ben Harper | Walt Disney Concert Hall | 11/18/13”

Nine Inch Nails | Staples Center | 11/08/13

“Pretty Hate Machine” was a very important part of my teen years. Believe it or not, I used to play football – granted it was 8 man football, rather than the traditional 11 man game. Before every game, for the four years I played in high school, my Discman played the the same 3 CDs to get meContinue reading “Nine Inch Nails | Staples Center | 11/08/13”

Iron & Wine | The Orpheum Theatre | 10/31/13

I didn’t have much of a social life during law school, and that’s probably a good explanation as any as to why my music collection tends to lack albums released during that time of my life. Insofar as I didn’t have a television during that time, and the only recordings I listened to were recordingsContinue reading “Iron & Wine | The Orpheum Theatre | 10/31/13”

Leaving The Locust, I headed back  to the main stage to meet up with some friends and to get a good spot for both TV on the Radio and Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Performing on the main stage, as I wasContinue reading “Deerhunter | FYF Festival | August 24, 2013”

The Weeks | Three Clubs | 3/29/13

I’m extremely grateful that my friends – most of my friends – have good taste in music. On 3/28/13, a buddy of mine shoots me a text at 11:22am about a show that he’s planning on going to in Hollywood on 3/29/13.  He tells me that a friend of his is managing a band basedContinue reading “The Weeks | Three Clubs | 3/29/13”
