Tweet It was a nice day for a white wedding yesterday, but an even better day to see Billy Idol at the Beacon Theatre in New York City. I first saw Billy live nearly 31 years ago … to the day! That show was at the Capitol Theatre in Passaic, N.J., on Feb. 4, 1984.  […]

Tweet I saw Fleetwood Mac at Madison Square Garden in October. It was a great show, but I wasn’t thrilled with my seats. I was too far away from the stage. Over the past couple of years, I’ve gotten very passionate about being up close and personal with performers. When I realized Fleetwood Mac was […]

Tweet I went to a lot of concerts this year, getting off to a great start by seeing my celebrity crush Neil Young perform live on January 6. He played solo at Carnegie Hall, accompanying himself on eight or so guitars, a banjo, a horde of harmonicas, two pianos and an organ. The New York […]

Tweet Last night, I grabbed my concert friend Jessie and we hustled to the front row of the Gramercy Theatre to see country rapper Yelawolf. Yelawolf is having a hot moment with his song “Till It’s Gone,” which was used in the second episode of the seventh (and final season) of Sons of Anarchy. I’ve […]

Tweet When I read that rapper Royce da 5’9″ was getting together with DJ Premier to put out a hip-hop album under the name PRhyme, I thought, “I’ll get that album.” When I saw that they were selling tickets to an album-release party at Santos Party House in New York this Monday, I thought, “I’ll […]

Tweet This weekend, Run the Jewels performed in New York and I got to see them up close and personal thanks to my gorgeous rapper friend Gangsta Boo. Run the Jewels is a duo consisting of rappers El-P and Killer Mike, and Boo did a verse for the song “Love Again” on their critically acclaimed […]

Tweet My gorgeous friend Stacy Lomman got us tickets to see iconic punk band the Damned perform at Irving Plaza on Halloween, so I wasn’t sure what costume I should wear or if I should wear one at all. I mean, what if I decided to wade into the mosh pit and do some crowd […]

Tweet I owe a big, belated thank you to my California-based Twitter friend John Laurente.  Early last month, he asked me if I wanted his tickets to a September 27 Jay Z concert in New York that he wouldn’t be able to attend. I’d already seen Jay Z twice, but I was up for a […]

Tweet While writing yesterday’s post about Fleetwood Mac, I delved into the band’s past, so I’ve got lots of recommended reading for you. Start with the band’s March 1977 Rolling Stone cover story. The band members were interviewed separately for the story by the then-19-year-old Cameron Crowe — the same Cameron Crowe who would eventually […]
