Last night, David and I made the trek East to Pomona, CA to see Ms. Lauryn Hill (her professional name these days) live in concert. After taking many, many years off from her music career after the release of her sole album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill back in 1998, it would appear that Ms. Hill is working on a comeback. Lauryn played the Coachella Music Festival last month and only a handful of dates on her current tour thus far. We found out about Hill‘s SoCal concert stop at the very last minute and were lucky enough to snap up tix for the show. While there were a few problems with her performance, I’d say all in all that she is still an excellent singer and an exciting performer. More »

Last night was my 8th show of Prince‘s 21 Nite Stand concert residency at the Forum in Inglewood, CA (my 10th overall if you count the two shows at the Troubadour last Wednesday) and, not to sound like a broken record, it was another fantastic show. Having seen so many shows already, I have a pretty good idea for how the shows will turn out by now … but hearing the audience explode with ecstatic glee each and every night is an absolute thrill and a privilege. I went to the show last night with my friends Josh, Essly and Garrett and we had a blast! More »

Last night I attended my 7th show of Prince‘s 21 Night Stand concert residency here in LA (not counting the 2 intimate shows I saw at the Troubadour in West Hollywood, CA last Wednesday) and I can only tell you that the shows keep getting better and better and BETTER!
