Live: Frank Turner

Frank Turner opened up for The Offspring at Starland Ballroom in Sayreville New jersey. Actually, he’s supporting them for the east coast portion of their tour and from the sounds of his tour diary, it’s been a great time. First, Starland Ballroom is situated in the middle of nowhere. Really, it’s sort of all by it’s lonesome with no neighboring businesses. I had high hopes that this would be a fantastic show, but, well, it wasn’t. Let me rephrase that, the actual performance by Frank Turner was fantastic, but the NJ Offspring crowd wanted nothing to do with him and made it pretty rough.

Live: Ghostface Killah & Raekwon

Ghostface Killah and Raekwon rocked the Balance Stage at Pitchfork Music Festival. They hd been scheduled for the Aluminum Stage, which is the main stage, but due to scheduling issues, they had to be rescheduled to later in the day, which meant switching stages.

Live: The Swell Season

From the moment Glen Hansard stepped on stage at Meymandi Concert Hall, the audience was in his grip. The Swell Season captivated us all for over 2 hours…2 hours and 20 minutes to be exact. It started with Glen stepping onto the front edge of the stage to loud applause, but once he began to sing, it became perfectly silent except for the sound of his voice and guitar. Not a rustle or whisper. Everyone was transfixed by him and the music. Gorgeous.

Live: Atlas Sound At Local 506

I’m always a bit apprehensive about what I’ll get when I go to a show with a band like Atlas Sound. It was the same concern I had before seeing Deerhunter, Bradford Cox’s other band. Both tend to have strong ambient leanings n their recordings and sometimes those don’t always play out well for a live audience. That wasn’t the case for Deerhunter, who would blast through their rock songs with enthusiasm, and it wasn’t the case with Atlas Sound.
