The Dashboard Confessional Sing-A-Long

The TV Guide

Last night I attended night one of a three night residency at The Troubadour in West Hollywood, CA to see Dashboard Confessional live in concert. For the 10th anniversary of their debut album, Dashboard — well, actually just frontman Chris Carrabba, is touring the US performing the entire album in full with just his acoustic guitar. My ex-bf Erik got me into Dashboard when we were together many moons ago and I never got to see them live … until last night. More »

Night At The Roxy

The TV Guide

Last night I had the extreme pleasure of seeing singer/songwriter Jay Brannan live in concert for the first time and people, I gotta tell you, he was stunningly fantastic! I’ve been a fan of Jay‘s ever since his album came out but before last night, I had never seen him in concert. I heard he was playing The Roxy so I got my ticket and saved the date. Without question, his live performance was one of my fave acoustic shows of all time. More »

An Evening With Jared Leto

The TV Guide

Last night my friend Jen and I trekked our way East to the sleepy hamlet of Pomona, CA to see Jared Leto in concert. Yes, the rest of his band 30 Seconds to Mars was there as well but to be honest, there wasn’t much spotlight on them at all … in fact, the stage lighting was so dark, it was difficult to see that anyone else was on stage except for rockstar Leto … but, to be honest, that was perfectly fine by us.

My plans for tonight are more exciting, tho, cuz my friend Jen and I will be trekking our way to Pomona, CA tonight to see 30 Seconds to Mars (and Jared Leto) LIVE in concert. More »

Yes, in the almost 5 years that we have been together, we have never been able to spend Xmas together because one or both of us jetted off across the country to be with our parents.

Peaches Saves

The TV Guide

Last night, David and I made our way to The Orpheum Theater in downtown LA to see Peaches live in concert. To be honest, I wasn’t at all sure what to expect from a concert that was being called Peaches Christ Superstar but I was totally surprised and WOWED by what we got. Peaches performed the entire soundtrack to Jesus Christ Superstar all by herself with only a piano accompaniment. Peaches‘s longtime collaborator Chilly Gonzalez played piano and Peaches sang … the entire Jesus Christ Superstar show all by herself: More »
