A ‘Sweet & Tender’ Tribute To The Smiths

The TV Guide

Last night I made my way down South to Anaheim, CA to see a couple of coverbands in concert. Now, I’m not a big fan of coverbands but I’ve been so curious to see The Smiths/Morrissey coverband Sweet & Tender Hooligans live in concert that I couldn’t resist making the trek to see them last night. I’ve been listening to The Smiths almost every single day for the past 6 months so, yeah, I’ve been on a definite kick lately. Hooligans performed last night with Strangelove, a Depeche Mode coverband and I have to tell you … they both put on fantastic shows. I had a blast! I snapped some photos and shot some video to give you a taste of last night’s superfun concert. More »

Tori Amos Enchants Los Angeles, Night 2

The TV Guide

Wow. I mean … wow. I am a bit speechless today as I sit here and try to succinctly write about last night’s Tori Amos concert at the Orpheum Theatre in downtown LA last night. As you may recall, Ollie and I saw Tori perform live in concert Saturday night at the Orpheum and last night, Adriana and I attended Tori‘s second LA show. The setlist last night was peppered with rare treats (Ode to the Banana King) and longtime favorites (Take to the Sky) but we got a song so rare that Tori Amos has never performed it live in concert before. To say that last night was magical would be an understatement. Click below to see some of the photos that I snapped last night, check out the setlist and watch video of Tori Amos performing the Y Kant Tori Read song On the Boundary for the first time ever.

Jay-Z & Kanye West Bring The ‘Cray’ To LA

The TV Guide

Last night David and I made our way to the Staples Center in downtown LA to see Jay-Z and Kanye West live in concert on their Watch the Throne Tour. Altho I’m not necessarily a huge fan of either artist, I couldn’t pass up the chance to see 2 of the best rappers alive perform together on the same stage. Last year I got to see Eminem in concert with Jay-Z in Detroit, MI and I was completely blown away. Last night, I was kinda blown away again. Check out some photos and video from last night’s show.

The Wrap Up

The TV Guide

Because of a really tight schedule yesterday, I didn’t have much time to get much work done … and absolutely no time to write up a TV Guide post … so today’s post will be a bit of a wrap up post. As you may recall, Sarah and I got to see Tori Amos live in concert for her second NYC show on Saturday night … then afterward, we met up with David’s sister Eden and her friends for some late night birthday drinks. Yesterday morning, we made our way down to China Town for a Dim Sum birthday brunch and then … it was time for David and me to fly home. More »

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 »
