Concert Review: Nawas Are Playful Southern Boys At Rough Trade NYC

Hailing from Louisiana, with a Californian drummer, NAWAS’ Ben McDaniel made it clear that he loves to be the center of attention or, at least, attention loves him as its center. Of course, “attention-seeking” can be seen as negative, but you do not become an artist because you want to be “unknown”. Moreover, why not get… Continue reading Concert Review: Nawas Are Playful Southern Boys At Rough Trade NYC

Concert Review: Brian Dunne Puts The Rising Before Star At Rockwood

NYC! I do not know another place that has more musicians salivating over stardom. Yet, fame is not only excitement over getting your picture-taken. It is also driven by the idea of attention and appreciation of your work. Brian Dunne deserves attention and appreciation, and he certainly got it from his Rockwood crowd. As he… Continue reading Concert Review: Brian Dunne Puts The Rising Before Star At Rockwood

Concert Review: Flint Eastwood Makes Being Awesome Look Easy At Terminal 5

Flint Eastwood is everything I love about “discovering” rising “new artists”. I use quotes because I am sure I am not the first or last to discover this magnet of energy. Moreover, I cannot say that any artist is “new” by the time they get into more people’s music sphere. It is a long, hard… Continue reading Concert Review: Flint Eastwood Makes Being Awesome Look Easy At Terminal 5

Concert Review: Quinn XCII Celebrates His Blessings At Bowery Ballroom

You ever have that moment when you SWEAR someone read you mind! They, somehow, said everything your were saying to yourself, but managed to say it out loud. I totally had that moment with Quinn XCII at his sold-out, Bowery Ballroom concert; when we both agreed what a blessing it is to be at a… Continue reading Concert Review: Quinn XCII Celebrates His Blessings At Bowery Ballroom

Concert Review: Syd Stays Present In Love At Irving Plaza

Syd, of the band The Internet, was like a sparkling, livewire of scintillating data at Irving Plaza. It was  a sensory overload that was not caused by spectacular “lighting” or special effects. Instead colorful lights flickered on a white sheet as Syd sang the equivalent of “baby-making, high-getting” music.  My first impression Syd’s voice can… Continue reading Concert Review: Syd Stays Present In Love At Irving Plaza

Concert Review: LPX Is A Space Captain At Brooklyn Steel

LPX went to Brooklyn Steel and DOUSED IT ON FIRE! I saw her at Baby’s All Right, of which she rocked the same, red leather jumpsuit that echoed the glorious Britney Spears’ days of “Oops I Did It Again”. Yet, why not draw upon that delicious, mischievous pop vibe, especially when it had such a… Continue reading Concert Review: LPX Is A Space Captain At Brooklyn Steel

Concert Review: Best Coast Brings Out their Inner Che For NYC

I love Best Coast. I am a 100% fan of their punk-pop jams on feeling both bored and invigorated by love and life. It is crazy to witness how our day to day can go from exciting to mundane in an instant. Yet when Bethany Costentino marched out to her Rough Trade NYC show looking… Continue reading Concert Review: Best Coast Brings Out their Inner Che For NYC

Concert Review: Hundred Waters Give A Replenishing Aesthetic At MHOW

Hundred Waters is such a gorgeous name, and represents the exact feel of their music or, at least, their performance at Music Hall of Williamsburg. From voice to the gentle choreography that brimmed behind Hundred Waters is, literally, replenishing. You feel spiritually cleansed and practically quenched with music that aims to silken stress. Hundred Waters… Continue reading Concert Review: Hundred Waters Give A Replenishing Aesthetic At MHOW

Concert Review: Craig David’s TS5 Takes Over Terminal 5

When I went to see Craig David at Terminal 5, I did not expect what I got. I think I thought I was going to get a live mix-tape of his classic hits, and a few candle-light discussions on love. When you think of Craig David, you might think sweet, romantic, and even wholesome. Sure,… Continue reading Concert Review: Craig David’s TS5 Takes Over Terminal 5

Concert Review: Alex Cameron Is A Twisted Elvis At Rough Trade NYC

I remember watching “Dracula” films, and wondering in creeped fascination why every person would be so “taken” with him. From literal hypnosis to supernatural charm and demeanor, he would nab his followers and keel their willingness to walk with him forever into nightfall. As Alex Cameron shaked his hips and glared at the crowd with… Continue reading Concert Review: Alex Cameron Is A Twisted Elvis At Rough Trade NYC
