Seeing a band or performer who you really like play live for the first time is such a delicate situation. Let's say that you've been listening to a certain album non-stop for months, are madly in love with it, and then you go see the songs performed live and they just majorly stink up the place. It's a sad thing when that happens, but let me just tell you that this did NOT happen when I went to my first ever Jemina Pearl show at Music Hall of Williamsburg on ... Read More
Me and Grandma. Keeping it Positive with a Thumbs Up on Celluloid. I have always enjoyed recording family gatherings. I’m sure most of you would agree to this statement. You may record with still images (most popular) or you may record with more involved moving images. Both mediums, suited perfectly and time-tested for documenting life as it happens, but here are a few more memory vehicle suggestions that may spark a new ... Read More

For those of you old enough to remember Sassy (RIP), there's a new kid in town that's helping to fill those smart-content-for-young-independent-gals shoes: I Heart Daily is a free email newsletter that hits your inbox with "the band you should hear, the girl who’s kicking ass in the world, the lipstick color that looks good on everyone, the designer who doesn’t have a fashion show yet but is completely amazing...you get the idea." They often have cool ... Read More

I am considering making it "my thing" in writing up concert reviews to re-tell the occurrences of fights that broke out while I was there. It seems to happen at every show I go to and is distracting in that sort of "this is so awkward, I can't look away" sort of way. Last night I attended the Julian Plenti show at the Bowery Ballroom, which was also apparently attended by the inhabitants of some sort of local mental hospital.     Julian Plenti is ... Read More

Okay, Okay, everyone knows how super cool Jon Spencer is, but have you seen him lately? People, if Heavy Trash is coming to your neck of the woods on tour, I strongly advise you get yourself out to see this band perform. They KILLED it last month at the record release party, and I can safely say he's one of the greatest performers of our time.
