Steve Reich Premier

Steve Reich Premier

Its very inspiring to see two musicians, who exist in two different realms of music, come together and inspire each other. Steve Reich, the minimalist composer of Music for 18 Musicians (along many other fabulous compositions), announced early last year that he was going to premiere a piece of music titled “Radio Rewrite”.

“In Time” by The Mavericks

“In Time” by The Mavericks

Ever since 1989, The Mavericks have been wooing the Western Hemisphere with their country Cuban sound – and despite an eight year hiatus – their new album In Time, released February 26th by Valory Music, proves no less successful. Although the reason for the band’s 2003 breakup is rather ambiguous, their website explains that during […]

DeVotchKa Live at HOB

DeVotchKa Live at HOB

DeVotchKa may be the best bar band in the world. To the tune of “Comrade Z”, heard live at the House of Blues, March 9, 2013, I found myself remembering a small, dark hotel cafe in northern Paris, where I once drank five-euro rum & cokes while a circle of locals strum and drum their […]

Taylor Swift In Vanity Fair

Taylor Swift In Vanity Fair

It’s safe to say Taylor Swift’s appetite for attention is insatiable and this week’s stunt further proves that statement. In the April issue of Vanity Fair, Taylor Swift inferred that both Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are going to hell for making comments regarding Swift’s love life at the Golden Globes. Throughout the award show, […]

Animal Collective Live At HOB

Animal Collective Live At HOB

Animal Collective kicked off their tour promoting 2012 release Centipede Hz last night at the House of Blues, lighting up the stage with their signature electro-weirdness and tripped out sound. Around since the late 1990′s, the Baltimore natives refuse to age by mellowing, and the spectacle was at an all-time high for the show that […]
