Countdown to Life is Beautiful: 15 Days – Future Islands

9 Sep

If you want to see pure passion on stage, go see Future Islands. If you want to be mesmerized, go see Future Islands. If you want to rage under the lights of Life is Beautiful, go see Future Islands. If you want to walk away from the festival with that “holy shit” moment, go see Future Islands. If you’ve seen Samuel Herrings dance moves on YouTube or TV, go see Future Islands. If David Letterman was at the festival, he’d be seeing Future Islands.

What I’m really trying to say is don’t miss Future Islands at Life is Beautiful.

Video: St. Paul & The Broken Bones – “Call Me” on Letterman

21 Jan

If you watch anything today, let it be this video. Earlier this month St. Paul & The Broken Bones were the musical guest on the Late Show with  David Letterman and boy did they deliver.   Besides their soul shaking performance, what struck me as just a sheer bit of awesome was how Letterman didn’t just introduce the band but rather did a whole shtick with Paul Janeway and what he wanted to see out of the band.  And he then followed that up with requesting an encore, he needed to hear more!  Just watch the below.  I for one had not seen Letterman do either of these in all the years watching the program and two, couldn’t be more excited for these fellas who I had perform at Life is Beautiful in 2014.  Countless friends have told me St. Paul & The Broken Bones were their favorite performance and discovery at the festival and I hope that in 2015 more and more discover the greatness of this band and get the opportunity to see them live.  It’s a religious experience!

Five For Friday: Rolling Stones, The Lumineers, Bob Dylan, Gary Clark Jr. and Ghost Beach

26 Oct

TGIF!  Back with a new Five For Friday to get you through the weekend.

  1. If you didn’t see it yesterday, check out my post about the Rolling Stones surprise show in Paris yesterday where fans got to snag tickets for $20.  Oh what I would have done to see that show!  Fingers crossed I can find a way to get tickets for the shows in Jersey in December.
  2. Did you catch The Lumineers on Letterman earlier this week?  Rolling Stone said the band “shined” but as much as I love the band, I have to say I was disappointed.  Didn’t like the sound on this one.
  3. This weekend I get to see Bob Dylan in concert.  Been quite a while since my last Dylan show and perhaps this may be the last.  Either way, should be interesting and I’m going to relish every second of it.
  4. Gary Clark Jr.’s album Blak and Blu is awesome and you all need to listen to it pronto.
  5. Fall is in full swing but you don’t have to be.  Here’s a song to brighten up your day from Ghost Beach – “Miracle” Viceroy remix.
