The Final Countdown

The Final Countdown. An entry from one of my other blogs

Awolnation, Imagine Dragons, Zeale Heat Up Water Street Music Hall

This was my first venture out to Water Street Music Hall in Rochester. They have had some great acts in the past so I’ll have to keep an eye out now that I know how easy it is to get to. Seriously. I live in the eastern Buffalo burbs and it was an hour door […]

You Should Be Buying Music on Amazon

If you haven’t checked it out, you should. I don’t ever buy pirated music and I never have because I think it’s important to support the artists. And I do live in Buffalo, NY, home of MUSIC IS ART, a not-for-profit founded by local musician Robby Takac of the Goo Goo Dolls. Amazon is not […]

No. No, That’s NOT The Best Of The Seventies. At All.

I heard a “Best of the Seventies” station at the dentist the other day. It was an actual XM Station though, not Muzak, so there was no excuse. They played Abba, Neil Sedaka, Paper Lace, and whatever that Do The Hustle song is. This is NOT the best of the seventies. The best music of […]

So, I Expected Zoe Keating to be Amazing and Talented.

I didn’t expect funny and engaging. She performed Sunday at Annie DiFranco’s Asbury Hall at Babeville. It’s a great venue. You can see more about it in my blog post: The Five Best Things About Living in Buffalo. It wass and intimate setting, probably not much more than 200 people there. I managed to sit in […]

The Five Best Things About Living in Buffalo

I have lived here in the Buffalo, NY suburbs since 1994. There are so very many things to recommend this great place, from the world class culturals to the easy commutes and small town feel. I never go anywhere here without running into someone I know. And whenever anyone asks how far someplace is, the […]

Top 10 Workout Playlist

These are my favorite songs to listen to at the gym. They are not all superfast cardio-y songs, some are more suited for weights. But these are all awesome songs that really help to keep me going. I tend to think in terms of one more song rather than X more minutes Walls Fall Down […]

Amy Winehouse – Gone Too Soon at 27

I have no insights to offer on the death of Amy Winehouse. No glimpses into the addicted psyche. No pithy “what we can learn from this” remarks. Just sadness at yet another young talent snuffed out too soon. Why is it so hard for so many to live in the spotlight without leaning on drugs […]

Vans Warped Tour at Darien Lake

Warped  at Darien Lake – always a great show. This year it  was unfortunately a little heavy on screamo and light on ska. I didn’t count, but there were supposed to be 70 bands on 16 stages. It was really hot, but there was s decent breeze which kept it from being miserable. There were water refilling stations […]

There’s Always Room for Cello

So today I had my first ever cello lesson. So fun. My teacher is a mom I knew from the high school. She comes with an impressive resume and the recommendation of the Director of Music for the school district. And this school district has an impressive music program. Anyway, I think she had fun […]
