Music Monday: The Top Ten Albums of the 90s

Posted: February 25, 2013 at 8:18 pm   /   Local, Music

Growing up in the 90s, it seemed like no music really dominated the decade. There was the alternative rock scene, consisting of bands like Nirvana, Alice and Chains, and Stone Temple Pilots. While alternative music often dominated my CD player, rap was also a fixture in my car, as my friends and I often spent […]

Gaelic Storm Looks to Rock Your Chicken Boxers

Posted: September 6, 2012 at 7:52 pm   /   Interviews, Local, Music

Some of my favorite bands people have heard but simply don’t realize the fact. For instance, I tell people one of my favorite bands of all time is Toad the Wet Sprocket.

Blah, blah, blah. None of this is news. I started putting together a review, but then I realized that I really had nothing left […]

On Saturday, April 28, people in the St. […]

The stage is set, the curtain is dropped, and you wait in breathless anticipation of Cirque’s latest creation, live at the Scottrade Center.  The Immortal World Tour, featuring Michael Jackson’s entire catalog of hits, is the most daring and emotional show yet.  I spent the better part of the show feeling like Michael was there […]
