On Friday October 6th , The Peabody Opera House hosted an evening with blue grass, country darling Alison Krauss and British folk rock singer David Gray. It was an intriguing concept that this seemingly, contrary musical pairing could somehow create cohesion on a tour. Arriving at the grandiose Peabody Opera House it was evident by the packed and […]

There was somberness driving to The Pageant tonight, most likely due to the recent clashes amongst the community.

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 […]
