Concert Review: Weird Al Yankovic at the St. Charles Family Arena (2011)

Posted: June 4, 2011 at 8:08 pm   /   Concert Reviews, Concerts, Local

When I was an adorable moppet, my father gave me a 45″ vinyl single of Weird Al Yankovic’s “Eat It.” To my young ears, the song was the best thing I’d heard in my life. In fact, I loved it so much that I took that record to school for Show and Tell Day. I’d […]

St. Louis Cardinals Baseball – The First Third of the Season

Posted: May 30, 2011 at 9:23 am   /   Local, St. Louis Cardinals

Wow, has it really been that long since I’ve posted on here? Eesh. Seems like the season just started a while ago. I do apologize for the neglect of my writing. I haven’t really had a lot of free time with my first season coaching an Atom 2 baseball team (two ties count as a […]

Concert Review: TFDI Tour w/ Tony Lucca, Jay Nash, and Matt Duke; Off Broadway December 14th

Posted: December 15, 2010 at 12:15 pm   /   Concert Reviews, Local

There are times when you go to see a great show, and you take a look around and think, “Why aren’t there more people here?”  Such was the case of the TFDI (or the Totally Fuckin’ Doin’ It Tour, as the audience was told by Jay Nash).  When I see musicians the caliber of Tony […]

Check Out the First “Green Hornet” Poster

Posted: October 19, 2010 at 2:37 pm   /   Local, Movie News

I have to admit, I’m still very unsure of this production. The release date is now in the doomed month of January, and it doesn’t really bode well for what was once slated to be a Christmas release. Although, I’ve enjoyed the majority of Seth Rogen’s films or at the very least his performances in […]

Restaurant Review: Fountain On Locust

Posted: October 6, 2010 at 11:01 pm   /   Local, Restaurant Reviews

As you might have guessed from the title this is a throwback to old style soda fountains that have all but been lost. This place is helping to form one of the cornerstones of the quickly […]

Concert Review: The National at The Pageant on September 30th, 2010

Posted: October 3, 2010 at 11:10 pm   /   Concert Reviews, Local

Hearing The National soundcheck, while buying Starburst at the Suite 100 store attached to the Pageant, reminded me how excited I was to see them in St. Louis. A short, but energetic, set at Lollapalooza left me hungry for full concert. Being used to performers often ignoring the actual time on the bill, it was […]
