From the media coverage, you might think that everyone who goes to the Coachella music festival in Indio, Calif., cares more about fashion than music. (Vanessa Friedman of the New York Times — praising the way clothes serve the message in Beyonce’s new visual album Lemonade — writes, “It is the anti-Coachella: the opposite of […]

The choker necklace has gotten so hot so fast this spring — especially at Coachella — that Vogue is ready to declare the style so over in favor of ankle bracelets, aka anklets. Forget the choker necklace, this is the accessory you need this summer: https://t.co/FEVuX8Liqf — Vogue Magazine (@voguemagazine) April 20, 2016 When I saw […]

I’d heard of singer Andra Day before, but I didn’t truly HEAR her until she performed with Ellie Goulding at the Grammy Awards last month. While she was still on the Grammy stage, I was checking for tour dates and I had my tickets for her March 25 show at Webster Hall by the time […]

I’m quite proud of my habit of keeping pop-culture ephemera, such as this program from Madonna’s 1987 AIDS benefit concert and a Duran Duran ticket stub from the same year. However, my high-school friend Jim Begala wins the prize for keeping everything. Jim previously confirmed the exact date of a 1984 INXS concert for me, […]

I usually blog about the concerts I go to, but I never wrote about the four shows I saw in November. My concert friend Jessie and I saw Marina and the Diamonds for the third time this year at Terminal 5 on November 10. As you can see from this video, we didn’t get there […]

I like to catch Ringo Starr‘s show whenever he’s in town, so I got tickets for his October 31 concert at Kings Theatre in Brooklyn. I figured I’d dress the part of a Beatles fan in the “Mod girl” outfit I’d worn once before for Halloween. It wasn’t until last week that I realized I’d […]

I never got around to doing a post on the Foo Fighters concert I went to in July. I was lazy about putting a watermark across the important parts of all my photos before sharing them. I had to start putting my name on concert photos after I discovered a few of my old ones […]

Back in the day, when Madonna would play a series of New York City dates, I’d get tickets to one show and say, “I want to do it again!” as soon as the house lights went up. I finally figured out it was best to always get tickets to two shows, which is why I […]

If you had told 1980s me that, in the distant future, I’d see Duran Duran once and Madonna twice in a single week, I would have been mind-blowingly happy … but not totally surprised.  I always promised myself that when I graduated from high school, I’d move to New York, where I would find like-minded […]

I’m having a belated, band-related fashion trauma! Ten days ago, I saw Duran Duran for the first time since 1987. The band was at Terminal 5 in New York to support their new album, Paper Gods, and my designing friend Stacy Lomman and I were there in the second row. That day, I deeply regretted […]
