Watch: Jenny Lewis & Ryan Adams Perform Her Song ‘She’s Not Me’ On ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’

Dynamic Duo
Jenny & Ryan do 'Jimmy'

Before Ryan Adams took the stage at The Wiltern Theater last night to perform the final show of his 2014 tour, he joined his friend Jenny Lewis on the outdoor stage at Jimmy Kimmel Live for a performance of her song She’s Not Me from her new album The Voyager. Ryan and Jenny have been performing this song together on dates they’ve played together this tour and last night they bestowed their gift to the rest of the country on national TV. Click the embed above to see watch Jenny and Ryan in action. They make a really great duo. I hope they continue to make more beautiful music together.

Ryan Adams Rocks The Wiltern, Night 2

The TV Guide

Last night I made a return trip to The Wiltern Theater to see Ryan Adams perform the last show of his 2014 tour. Last night was the 4th show I saw in the past month and it was one of the best. From the start, I could tell the show was going to be a special one. Ryan was just so “on” that I was so glad I decided to see the show last night. Last night’s setlist included two of my fave Ryan Adams songs … including his brilliant cover of the Oasis song Wonderwall (a song he hasn’t performed live in some time). Ugh, so good. Click below to see some photos and watch video of Ryan‘s performance last night of LaCienega Just Smiled and Wonderwall. More »

Watch: ‘The Colbert Report’ Ended Last Night In Spectacular Red White And Blue Superstar Celebrity Style

From Here to Eternity

Back in April, we learned that Stephen Colbert was selected by CBS to replace David Letterman as the host of The Late Show when he retires next year — which meant that Colbert‘s own TV show, The Colbert Report, had to end. Last night, the final episode of The Colbert Report aired on Comedy Central and it went out with a massive bang. Stephen Colbert pulled together a massively impressive group of celebrities (like Bryan Cranston, Elijah Wood and Willie Nelson), politicians (like President Bill Clinton, Henry Kissinger and Senator Cory Booker), luminaries (like Charlie Rose, Katie Couric and Smaug) and Big Bird for a live musical performance that is truly a must-see. Click below to watch the performance and Colbert‘s absolutely final gag/skit and see how The Colbert Report came to a final end. More »

Ryan Adams Rocks The Wiltern, Night 1

The TV Guide

So, last night I made my way to The Wiltern for what I thought was going to be my last concert of the year but it turns out that I actually attended the first to TWO Ryan Adams concerts … which follow recent Ryan Adams shows that I saw in Pomona, CA and Northridge, CA. I managed to get a pit ticket for last night’s show so I was very excited to be up close and personal with Mr. Adams. For the most part, the show was really great … but after the PA system blew, the show had to be cut short early and, well, I can’t go for that. I managed to procure another pair of pit tickets for tonight’s second show at The Wiltern, Ryan‘s last of the tour, for my friend Josh Rosebrook and I so … last night was merely a prelude to tonight :) More »

Watch: Charli XCX Performs ‘Boom Clap’ & ‘Break The Rules’ On ‘Saturday Night Live’

'SNL's saving grace
Charli XCX to the rescue

Earlier this week we saw promo videos for this weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live and, as I suspected, Charli XCX‘s musical performances were the ONLY things worth watching when the ep aired last night. While the rest of the SNL was actually painful to watch, Charli‘s two musical performances stood out as a shining beacon — thankfully. Click the embed above to watch Charli‘s performance of Boom Clap (which is featured in the film The Fault In Our Stars) and then click below to watch her performance of Break The Rules, featured on her new album Sucker which is out on Tuesday.

The Last Race Of 2014 (I Think)

The TV Guide

A few days ago, I was reminded that I had signed up a few weeks ago for the Holiday Half Marathon 5K race and when my alarm went off this morning, I was really reminded that the time had come to run the race. I was hoping to squeeze in at least one more race before the year was over and thankfully, this 5K race fit the bill. I was originally planning to run the full half marathon but in the ended, I decided a 5K was good enough so … earlier today, I ran one of my fastest 5Ks to round out a year of races for 2014. More »

Ryan + Jenny + Mereki

The TV Guide

Last night I met up with my dear friend Eileen so that we could make our way to Pamona, CA to see Ryan Adams and Jenny Lewis live in concert. I was lucky enough to see Ryan in concert in early October and I have two more Ryan shows in my near future but last night’s performance was really freaking fun. After Ryan and Jenny sufficiently rocked our asses, Eileen and I made our way home to LA … and then I met up with my friend Stacey for an even later concert performance by Mereki at an afterhours place called Overpass. It was a VERY long night/morning but a very fun night/morning as well. More »

American Hi-FTW!

The TV Guide

Last night I made my way to The Viper Room in West Hollywood, CA on the famed Sunset Strip to see American Hi-Fi in concert. I’ve been a Hi-Fi fan since the band came out in the late ’90s. Before lead singer Stacy Jones formed this band he previously played drums for Letters to Cleo and then Veruca Salt, so I have been a fan of his since the early ’90s. I’ve seen American Hi-Fi in concert a few times over the years, most recently when they played The Viper Room back in 2010 … but I have really fond memories of seeing the guys back home in Detroit as well. With a new album out this year, I’ve been anxiously awaiting them to start playing shows again and last night was my chance to see them. More »
