i just won the lottery…


Ok, so I didn’t win a Powerball or Mega Millions jackpot, but in my musical world, scoring some sweet presale seats for Pearl Jam’s upcoming fall tour through their fan club ticket lottery has made me quite happy! I will be attending the October 21st gig at the Wells Fargo center in Philly! Tickets for the tour officially go on sale on Saturday, July 27th.

Also looking forward to the new studio disc, Lightning Bolt, slated for an October 15th release. And totally rocking out to the new single, Mind Your Manners, very reminiscent of Spin the Black Circle!

Until next time…


rumor has it…


I am very excited about the buzz on the Internet today. Apparently, it was leaked that Pearl Jam is supposed to release a new single on July 16th (the same day as their show at Wrigley Field in Chicago) called Mind Your Manners!!!

Here are the links with more details of the story:

Music Feeds Australia
Audio Ink Radio

Since I am seriously jonesing for some new PJ music, I really hope this rumor proves to be true. And, I also hope, the new album (which has been reported to be in the mixing stage) will be released soon after to coincide with a highly anticipated fall tour…

Peace, Love & Pearl Jam,

black crowes 2013 tour


After their much hyped hiatus, the Black Crowes are finally returning this spring for a UK and US tour. I snagged my ticket this morning…Friday, April 12th at the Electric Factory in Philadelphia. I first saw the band in 1991, shortly after their debut, Shake Your Money Maker started to gain recognition. They opened for ZZ Top at the now demolished Philadelphia Spectrum. It was groovy love at first sight for the Robinson Brothers and company, and I have attended several shows during their always funky, and sometimes bumpy, 20+ year journey. After nine studio and four live albums, the Black Crowes still maintain their free spirited indie status and almost rebellious artistic freedom.


The last show I attended was on October 17, 2010 at the intimate Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank, NJ. It was an amazing performance highlighted by the rowdy opening cover of Joe Cocker’s Give Peace a Chance, a haunting rendition of Lou Reed’s Oh Sweet Nuthin’, sung by Rich Robinson, and a totally jammed out version of one of my favorites, Thorn In My Pride. Of course, they rocked out on all of the usual suspects, including Hard To Handle, Jealous Again, She Talks To Angels, and Wiser Time.

I am totally stoked for this April show. One thing I can honestly say is that the Black Crowes never disappoint. I hope to hear a little Soul Singing.

Thanks for stopping by!
