Remembering & Revisiting

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a pretty amazing, very powerful day for me. Sarah and I, first, paid a visit to The National September 11 Memorial in lower Manhattan and then we met up with friends Halli and Johanna at the Beacon Theater to see Tori Amos perform her first of two concerts here in NYC. The memorial visit was kind of last minute but it was well worth our time. The Tori concert was glorious, as ever. It was a really special day for all of us. More »

Watch: Morrissey Performs ‘People Are The Same Everywhere’ On ‘Conan’

New Track

The legendary Morrissey paid a visit to Conan this week to perform his brand new (as yet unreleased) song People Are the Same Everywhere and in case you missed it, you can check out video of his performance below. I was very lucky to see Moz perform a stellar concert performance last week so I’ve been on a bit of a Morrissey high for the last few days. I had such a great time at the show that I want to share some of that joy with all y’all. Click below to check out Morrissey‘s performance on Conan last night to see what I’m talking about. More »

Upon Further ‘Reflections’

The TV Guide

So … OMG … after I got to see The Cure live in concert last Monday on the first night of the US leg of their Reflections Tour, I thought for sure I had seen the best Cure concert of all time. It turns out that I was wrong. Because after I got to see The Cure live in concert again last night, I know for a fact that last night’s show as a wee bit better than the one I saw last week. To be honest, I did not plan on seeing The Cure here in NYC because the shows sold out in minutes. But David’s sister Eden is a big Cure fan with a birthday coming up and I decided to see what aftermarket ticket options were available. Long story short, we found 4th row seats for a very reasonable price! And let me tell you, being that close to the stage really makes for a much more enjoyable concert experience. More »

Morrissey Rocks Escondido, CA

The TV Guide

So … last night I was able to see Morrissey in concert … for which I am VERY grateful. You see, Moz is scheduled to play 3 LA area concerts in the coming days but I will not be able to attend any of them because I will be flying back east to Connecticut to spend Thanksgiving with David’s entire family. Fortunately, Moz scheduled a show 2 hours South of LA in Escondido, CA last night … and that was the show I got to see. Now, a 4 hour round trip drive prolly sounds like a lot but back in the day, I used to make the 4 hour drive EACH WAY from Detroit to Toronto AND Detroit to Chicago to see my fave bands in concert. Last night’s trek was nothing … and let me tell you, it was well worth the drive. More »

The Cure, For What Ails You

The TV Guide

So … let me tell you about my night last night. My dear friend Angie and I decided to celebrate her birthday at the Pantages Theater in Hollywood, CA at a special concert performance by none other than The Cure. The band is performing a 3 night stint here in LA on their Reflections Tour where each night they perform their first 3 albums in full — Three Imaginary Boys, Seventeen Seconds and Faith. Last night was night 1 of the 3 night residency and without being too hyperbolic, it was one of the best live shows I’ve ever seen in my life. More »

The Pixies Rock LA

The TV Guide

Last night I was among the lucky few folks here in LA that was able to attend the Pixies concert at The Music Box in Hollywood, CA. As you may know, The Pixies are currently on the Lost Cities Tour where they are performing in cities they’ve never played in before. Thankfully for us Los Angelinos, they decided to add an LA show along the way. Now, I’ve seen The Music Box full to sold out capacity but last night’s Pixies show was EVEN MORE FULL than I had ever seen it before. Yes, folks, it was one of those epically amazing nights. More »

Watch: Beyoncé Shows Off Her Wedding Dress Publicly For The First Time

She was Here

Altho Beyoncé Knowles is a HUGELY popular public figure, she has managed to keep significantly important private parts of her life, well, private. Beyoncé managed to keep pretty much all of the deets about her wedding to Jay-Z completely secret … she even managed to keep photos of her nuptials completely out of the public eye. The eagle-eyed folks at Celebuzz managed to notice that Bey has finally decided the time is right to share some parts of her wedding day with the world … and has offered up a glimpse of her wedding dress. During Beyoncé‘s performance of I Was Here at the Roseland Ballroom in NYC, NY a couple of months ago, a quick look at Beyoncé‘s dress flashed on screen … and now that that performance is being released on DVD, those of us not in attendance at the show can see her dress too.

Dance Party By Yelle

The TV Guide

So … last night … OMG … what a fun night. After missing a few shows in the past couple of years, I finally got to see French pop QUEEN Yelle live in concert last night. She was supposed to play her LA show last Thursday but due to visa issues, had to postpone until last night. Let me tell you, she was worth the wait. Despite the fact that her lyrics are 100% in French and therefore 96% unintelligible to me (my high school French does pick up a few words here and there), Yelle managed to put on one of the best shows I’ve seen all year and one of the funnest shows I have ever been to in my life.

Watch: Jamie Lynn Spears Makes Her Country Music Debut

Britney's Lil Sis Makes Her Return to the Spotlight

Earlier this year Jamie Lynn Spears, younger sister of our dear Britney Spears, joined Twitter and hinted that she was in the process of working on a debut album … in Nashville, TN. Altho she never actually announced the kind of music she was making, my assumption was that she was recording a Country music album. A few days ago, JL confirmed that assumption when she made her Country music debut with a live performance at a local Nashville bar. As I understand it, JL‘s parents Lynne and Jamie Spears were in the hizzy for her performance. Click below to watch 2 video clips from Jamie Lynn‘s live performance and see what you think. More »
