Carrie's Playing Maria Von Trapp In The Live Production
Back in December we learned that a new Maria von Trapp was coming to town. Country superstar Carrie Underwood will be taking on the lead role in a new live production of The Sound Of Music. NBC will air the production sometime this year and there’s been plenty of buzz about Carrie being cast in the lead. Like many folks, I’m still a huge fan of The Sound Of Music movie with Julie Andrews, so I wasn’t sure about Carrie taking on her role. However, I was blown away (pun intended) when Carrie took the stage at the 2013 Grammy Awards, and many people believe she’s right for this role. Carrie‘s now speaking out about the production, and clearing up some misconceptions about it being a remake. Click inside for more!

On Monday we got our first look at the cover art for Demi Lovato‘s new album Demi and back in February, we got to hear the album’s first single Heart Attack. Last night, Demi performed the song live on Jimmy Kimmel Live and today we get to see her performance in full. As I mentioned previously, I’m really digging the Heart Attack single so it was great to see this performance on Kimmel. Check out the embed above and see what you think. Demi rules, don’t she?

Alas, my BFF Sarah flew back home to Detroit early yesterday afternoon and I was left with an empty house :( I spent most of my afternoon trying to recuperate from the bizzy weekend Sarah, Adriana and I enjoyed and then it was back out on the town last night for more fun. Hustle Roses (aka my homie Ollie) performed a show at the Bootleg Bar last night so I met up with Caleb and Tamar to see her in action. She killed it, as usual. I got to spend some time with Ollie and Caleb after her show so that we could catch up a bit. ‘Twas a fun night. More »

Happy Easter, y’all!! I hope all y’all are having a fun weekend. I’ve been having a great weekend full of fun and really good times. As I mentioned previously my BFF Sarah is visiting LA from Detroit for the weekend and we (along with our friend Adriana) embarked on a road trip up to San Luis Obispo so that we could spend the night at the fabulous Madonna Inn. We spent our Friday evening/night whooping it up at the Madonna Inn and then our early Saturday enjoying downtown SLO. By late afternoon, we drove back to LA so that we could get downtown to see my girl Hustle Roses in concert last night. It’s been a bit of a whirlwind … but an extremely fun whirlwind. More »

Prince, the Purple One himself, reigned supreme at the South by Southwest Music Festival in Austin, TX on when he closed out the week with an E-P-I-C 2 1/2 hour performance at the Samsung Galaxy party on Saturday night. Prince played a set so long that he outlasted many of the younger folks who came out to see his show. The setlist wasn’t the expected string of hit songs, rather it was a fluid, organic jam session that spanned various music stylings, with various costume changes. Speaking to the crowd, Prince proclaimed himself a “servant” to the fans … and boy, did he deliver. Click below to see a photo of Prince at SxSw and read some deets about his stellar performance.

Back in March of 2009 my good friend Gillian and I went to the Catalina Jazz Club to see Wonder Woman actress Lynda Carter live in concert. Last night, we returned to the Catalina Club to see our girl live in concert again. For those of you who don’t know, Lynda Carter was a singer before she famously became Wonder Woman on TV in the late 70′s/early 80′s. For the past few years, she’s made a return to singing and Gillian and I became HUGE fans. When I found out that Lynda Carter was performing again, I knew we had to see her … and we had a blast last night. More »
