Thank you, silverfuture for sharing this pic from a show earlier this year...

I recently started law school and as a result have been staying away from any sort of fun. This week has been a break from the grindstone I’ve been resting my nose on. I started my week of leash loosening at Bimbo’s 365 on Wednesday night. This was my first time there and the one word I can use to describe it is “classy.”

Who doesn't love a cat?

Pouria asked that this one be the photo for this week. Sure, why not?

Rough week. Guess I was getting my comeuppance for not doing this for a while. [Editor’s Note: It’s OK. The transition from Lala to alternate listening methods hurt us all.]  Some straight up dogs out this week. There were a few highlights though. Read on dear readers. [read the whole post]

Stefan Knupfer featured in the documentary Pianomania, co-directed by Lilian Franck and Robert Cibis

As a child I was only allowed to listen to soft rock and classical music. Though I should have probably called CPS, I did not know any better. I do still however love both forms of music. This is probably why I thought Pianomania ruled. The music was absolutely enchanting. [read the whole post]

Show Review: Dr. Dog with Sean Bones at the Great American Music Hall, 4/24/2010

April 25, 2010

April 16, 2010

Sorry to everyone who expected to see this last week. Due to some unexpected laziness I only listened to new releases and didn’t review them. There was general outrage and I won’t do it again.

Mega New Release Round Up 3/16/10 and 3/23/10 – 52 Instant Album Reviews

March 29, 2010

So I’ve been working a lot of long hours. It has sapped my will to be funny or amusing. Basically sapping my will…although I guess it could also be a direct result of listening to Bieber. Zing!
