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 […]

I’ve been meaning to write about the Taylor Swift concert I attended on July 11, when I had to chaperone a major fangurl all the way to MetLife Stadium in New Jersey … … but I was lazy about getting all my concert photos watermarked. However, there’s no time like the present to get organized, […]

I was in Chicago over the weekend to visit family and attend the Ravinia Festival in Highland Park, Ill. The festival’s website says Ravinia (named for the Ravinia Park grounds where it is held) is the oldest outdoor music festival in North America. Who knew?! Ravinia isn’t a stand-all-day-to-see-Eminem, Lollapalooza-like event. It’s very civilized. You […]

Because it is Lana del Rey’s 30th birthday (ah, youth!), it’s time for me to post a few photos of her performance at the Governors Ball music festival earlier this month. The three-day, four-stage festival takes place on New York City’s Randall’s Island, and I was there for two days with my concert-going friend Jessie. […]

I finally got to meet my Florida-based customer Hi-Rez in person when he played the Studio at Webster Hall on June 3. He put on a great show with guest appearances by rappers Emilio Rojas; Joell Ortiz of Slaughterhouse; Smoke DZA; and Cory Gunz. I got some good mid-air shots of Cory. This isn’t my […]

In 1982, when I was in high school, the Who went on a farewell tour. My gorgeous but strict mother, BarbaraB, wouldn’t let me go to the New Jersey show. I cried and cried because, after all, it was a FAREWELL TOUR! My last chance EVER to see The Who! Last chance, that is, until […]

I’m still recovering from JCK Las Vegas, the gigantic jewelry trade show that took place over the weekend. It’s not Vegas-style partying that exhausts me. It’s seeing hundreds of thousands of jewelry styles in one place that’s exhausting! The highlight of any JCK experience is meeting up with my group of amazing social-media wimmin friends, […]

My concert-going friend Jessie and I have been busy lately, with the highlight being Wednesday’s Paramore show at the Beacon Theatre. Thanks to StubHub, I got second-row center seats … and thanks to Eminem and Rihanna, I had Jessie to go with. I met Jessie when I was waiting in line for Em and Rih’s […]
