Favorite Live Shows of 2012

Date December 12, 2012

As a result of certain life events due to transpire next year, I may not be going to concerts / festivals at the same rate I used to, so it’s a good thing that I went all out this year. This was my first year I went to Bonnaroo in addition to my usual Pitchfork [...]

Kiss! Kiss! Bang! Bang! (The James Bond Mix)

Date November 9, 2012

James Bond has long been one of my favorite film heroes. Growing up I would watch and rewatch my favorite Bond films (mostly taped on VHS from TBS “15 Days of 007″ marathons) and although the franchise’s quality is pretty hit-or-miss, I’ll always have a particular fondness for the suave secret agent. The latest Bond [...]

Questlove’s SuperJam (ft. D’Angelo) @ Bonnaroo (6/9)

My experience with D’angelo doesn’t extend much past his controversial¬†“Untitled” [...]

So getting the chance to see them in a prime spot at Bonnaroo on Saturday night was very special treat, and the legendary Philly crew definitely rose to the occasion. After [...]

These are the 15 performances [...]

The Roots – Live @ Summer Camp

Date June 3, 2008

The Roots were second only to The Flaming Lips on my most anticipated acts list for Summer Camp. The crew is known to put on extraordinary live shows, and this being my first experience with the band, I came out pretty blown away. I should preface this by saying I don’t own any of The [...]
