As a Bon Jovi fan, I may be a bit biased in my review, but you have to understand that if it wasn’t for Jon and his band, I would never have gotten into rock music. Growing up, all I was subjected to was country music. I can still remember being 6 years-old and hearing […]

Finally! Symphony season is upon us. as such, I’d like to give a brief recap of last seasons finale… Let me start by admitting that I am no veteran of attending symphony performances or even listening to classical composition.

Concert Review: Reel Big Fish & Friends Rock the Pageant. Yes, Again.

Posted: July 14, 2012 at 5:40 pm   /   Concerts, Music

Ska-punk stalwarts Reel Big Fish conquered The Pageant July 12. They played “Sell Out,” “Beer” and their version of A-Ha’s “Take On Me” while telling corny jokes and encouraging circle pits. Blah, blah, blah. None of this is news. I started putting together a review, but then I realized that I really had nothing left […]
