Weird Al is entertaining, but nothing to write home about

BOCA RATON, FL - I have never been a big Weird Al fan. I have nothing against the guy but he just wasn't a big enough star when I was growing up in Brazil. Sure MTV played some of his videos over there (the only ones I remember are "I'm Fat" and "Smells Like Nirvana) but that was pretty much all I knew about him.

We’re Not Gonna Take It: Concert Etiquette 101

It seems a new breed has taken over concert venues from coast to coast. Beamed down straight from the mother ship, as a good friend and concert-buddy of mine once expounded, the douche pods have indeed hatched. The result is a mass infiltration of douchedom injected into even the best concert experience. Formerly quarantined to […]

George Michael brings his dance party to Southern California

ANAHEIM, CA -- I can’t even tell you when the last time I danced for almost 3 hours nonstop. But when I attended the George Michael concert last Friday night, it was hard to remain on your chair. You had no other choice but to get up and dance a little bit. It was that contagious. When George Michael stepped on his stunning illuminating stage last Friday with the song “I’m Your Man,” the audience roared and clapped as they joined him in what became a two and a half hour dance-a-thon.

Stone Temple Pilots bring rock back to Massachusetts

MANSFIELD, MA -- It seriously feels like forever when you're waiting for a concert, but once it happens, it's over so very quick. Since I was already spoiled about STP's setlist, I decided to read up on some reviews posted at various STP message boards before we went to the concert. Not a good idea. Nearly every single review was bad. Apparently Scott Weiland was really f*cked up at the New Jersey show.

We Can All Just Hum Along – Words Don’t Matter Anymore

HOLMDEL, NJ – Two thousand eight is a very important year for Stone Temple Pilots. The four-piece rock band, unfairly classified as “grunge,” has returned with a bang. Scott Weiland, fresh out of his previous band of hooligans, Velvet Revolver, has teamed up with his original band mates for one of the most buzzed about reunions of the year. For many, this summer’s shows will be their first live exposure of the Pilots; experienced veterans will be satisfying their musical sweet tooth.

Bryan Adams: Stripped in Los Angeles

LOS ANGELES, CA – Sit back and remember your childhood days when you received the great gift of music. Either a record you purchased, or a great hand-me-down album from a relative or friend. A record that you listened which opened up the door to a whole realm of music you didn’t even know existed. What is that? You’d think to yourself. Thinking it was the best music you had ever heard.

Light the Candles On All Your Frankensteins

PHILADELPHIA, PA - Marilyn Manson's usual theatrics took something of a backseat this time around on the Rape of the World Tour's stop in Philly. While certainly not lacking for the eye-searing visuals and symbolic props that both the man and the band are known for, the real focus of the show was not just on incredible musicianship, but the fact that longtime bassist Twiggy Ramirez was finally back in the Manson fold. After a long absence from the band beginning in 2002, Twiggy and Manson are finally back together again, as they should be. With the possible exception of the Mechanical Animals-era lineup, the band has never sounded better.

Alice in Chains at The Wiltern – Night 2

LOS ANGELES, CA -- We went over to the Wiltern to see Alice in Chains. We purposedly skipped Hurt cuz that band sucks so much bad I would rather strangle myself than to ever see them perform again. I am not even joking. It was that painful. Alice in Chains came out and that place was moving. I swear, every person with their hands right up in the air singing to every single word...of every freaking song. It was moving. Made the hair on the back of your neck stand.

Alice in Chains at The Wiltern – Night 1

LOS ANGELES, CA -- Oh my God...talk about feeling like I was back in high school again! Alice in Chains ROCKED! Blew me out of the water! Their set was so full of energy and I was only a few rows away from Jerry...oh dear how amazing were they? I sang my little heart out and remembered listening to their songs way back when I used to wear baby doll dresses and Doc Martens in 10th grade, listening to Dirt like it was the best record that ever existed

Kid Rock: The Next Rock N’ Roll Jesus?

MIAMI BEACH, FL -- A front row of predominant male fans and a handful of girls accessorized in cowboy hats raised their hands in the air and danced along to the self-acclaimed rock and roll Jesus, Kid Rock, as he professed his adulation for sex, love and rock and roll to his fans at the Fillmore Miami Beach at Jackie Gleason Theater. Elegantly clad, Rock opened the show with “Rock N Roll Jesus” dressed in a white suit and his signature fedora hat, accompanied by seven musicians in a stage adorned like an altar, with red velvet drapes and lit candles all over the stage, illuminating Rock and all his glory.
