Shy Girls | The Spare Room and Bootleg Bar | 12/12/13 and 12/13/13

I was driving around town while listening to KCRW when the silky vocals and opening keyboard chord progression of a smooth jam gently flowed through my car’s speaker circuits. A rhythm guitar stealthily crept in, sweeping into a late 80’s, early 90’s, drum program with a subtle flourish line added to the chords that caughtContinue reading “Shy Girls | The Spare Room and Bootleg Bar | 12/12/13 and 12/13/13”

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”

Laura Mvula | The Orpheum Theatre | 10/31/13

Earlier this year, I hit a little bit of a rough patch. It was one of those times when life just didn’t seem to go my way. My loving dog of 13 years, Samson, passed away while I was out of state, I was having some personal issues I was dealing with, and the icing on theContinue reading “Laura Mvula | The Orpheum Theatre | 10/31/13”
