The Gipsy Kings and their “Spanish flamenco / Romani rhapsody meets salsa funk” style tore down the house at Chastain Park in Atlanta on August 15. Dancing in the aisles was not a figure of speech at this show. It was hard to see the stage sometimes because of the mass of bodies moving to […]
The Avett Brothers played at Verizon Wireless in Alpharetta on May 25 with special guest, the legendary Emmylou Harris, who made a surprise appearance for one song with them on stage.
Charismatic front man Josh Todd and fellow Buckcherry band mates (Keith Nelson and Stevie D., guitars; Kelly LeMieux, bass; Xavier Muriel, drums) , brought his animated, physical, and more than slightly NC-17 style to Wild Bill’s in Duluth on May 23, headlining a triple bill with Fozzy and Kickin Valentina.
Infectious smiles and what seemed like a genuine surprise and appreciation of the reception given to them – it was practically impossible to leave this show feeling down or bored. Amy Heidemann and Nick Noonan were in Atlanta in support of their latest release Pulses and performed a variety of songs from that album as […]
Kickin Valentina – one of our favorite up-and-coming Atlanta bands – will be opening for Buckcherry this Friday, 23 May, at Wild Bill’s in Duluth. KV is, to turn a phrase, for those who are ready to ROCK. This four-piece comprised of Heber Pampillon on guitar, Chris Taylor on bass, Jimmy Berdine on drums, and Joe Edwards’s […]
On a stage backdropped with twinkling fairy lights and before a pristine white mic festooned with flowers, Christina Perri brought her playful combination of smiles, empathetic stories of relationships gone from good to bad, boho tresses, and both wistful ballads and upbeat dance-y pop to Atlanta on April 30.Currently touring in support of her latest […]
**Birdy on an upward trajectory to the sky** Touring in support of her latest release Fire Within, Birdy brings a voice full of a soulful richness that belies her young age. She opened her set playing her first two songs on keys with two guitars backing, but the piano’s clearly audible tones are the star […]
**The Tale of Two Queensryches has come to an end** After a two-year legal dispute, the question about “which Queensryche” gets to use the name has been settled. Geoff Tate, lead vocalist and quintessential front man of the original band out of Bellevue, WA, has after 30+ years lost the right to use the trademark […]
Walking into the show was a little surprising – this was a band who I knew was up for a Juno Award for Alternative Album of the Year for Warring, against darlings-of-late Arcade Fire, no less; and yet they were to appear in the smallest of the venue’s three rooms. Well I was still early […]
I don’t know how this is going to end I don’t know how this is going to change I don’t know how this is going to feel But everything comes down to this
Shane MacGowan – The Pogues – Atlanta GA, 9 Mar 2009 Shane, god love him, is an extraordinarily rare talent, but it’s hard to get a good picture of him because he doesn’t have many, or any, teeth. Photography info: Camera: Nikon D300 Lens: Nikon 24-70mm constant f/ 2.8 ISO 1600, 1/100s, f/ 2.8 at […]
Trent Reznor – Nine Inch Nails – at Phoeniz AZ, 15 May 2009. Although given last night’s Grammy debacle, I like to think of this as “Did you seriously just cut away from my act halfway through so you could thank your ad sponsors??” (For those who don’t know – The Grammys in its infinite […]
Geoff Tate’s Queensryche, featuring Rudy Sarzo on bass, Robert Sarzo on guitar, Kelly Gray on “flying V” guitar, Randy Gane on keys, and Simon Wright on drums, touring in support of the 25th anniversary of their seminal 1988 release Operation: Mindcrime, slammed down an energetic and exciting show at Atlanta’s Center Stage on Friday, January […]
[do_widget id=social-widget-3] Liela Moss – The Duke Spirit – Boston, MA, 2009. If I didn’t know better I’d say this was Debbie Harry in about 1980.
Amanda Palmer – The Dresden Dolls. Love her or hate her, you have to admit she is a memorable performer – whether it’s earning a living as a street performer known as “The Eight Foot Tall Bride” or removing her underwear on the red carpet or pretending to be a conjoined twin – she always […]
Phish at Bonnaroo 2009. This is cropped in, I think, 16:9 because the stage is so high at Bonnaroo that unless you are a giant or using a monopod, or are able to go quite far down the center aisle to shoot, it’s impossible to get anything without a huge hunk of stage right in […]
[do_widget id=social-widget-3] Having lunch with Josh Freese, wife Nicole, and son Hunter, during his fairly bizarre (in a good way) promotions for his Since 1972 solo release. Purchase packages ranged from a 5-minute call with him to his being your servant for a couple of weeks and getting to ride around LA in Danny Carey’s […]
Nine Inch Nails. First moments of first show of the then-said-to-be-the-last NIN tour. (Later made moot by the decision to do another tour.) The Bowery Ballroom, New York, 22 Aug 2009. Photography equipment notes: Camera: Nikon D300 Lens: Nikon 24-70mm ISO 1000, 1/100s, f/ 2.8 at 48mm
