Review: Stevie Nicks at Family Arena

Posted: September 14, 2017 at 8:18 am   /   Concert Reviews, Concerts, Reviews

I go to concerts to hear music. I go to concerts to hear songs that I love and know. It may be different for some fans, but for me, that’s what I enjoy. If I wanted to hear an artist ramble on, telling life stories, I’d listen to interviews or a VH1 Storytellers. Rock & […]

Review: Toadies With Local H at Delmar Hall

Posted: September 10, 2017 at 2:52 am   /   Concert Reviews, Concerts, Reviews

Sometimes the headliner just can’t live up to the opener. I saw this a couple years ago with 30 Seconds to Mars when 21 Pilots opened for the band at The Pageant. On Saturday night at a sold-out show, The Toadies may have been billed as the headliner but Local H stole the show. Local […]
