Review, Photos, Poster, Video: White Demin @ Lincoln Hall 4/19/12

Im not sure how one can define The Best Live Band in America or if it would even mean anything if you did. However, if intensity, imagination, innovation, and execution could be considered fair measures, White Denim made its case for the title Thursday night at Lincoln Hall.Starting out with the opening trio of...

Summer Camp Sunday: A Review In Chart Form

It took a little while, but I'm ready comment on my experience at Summer Camp Music Festival this year. I'll withhold detailed comment on the weather or conditions, but there is enough to say about the music, even with my Sunday only pass, to get on the page.

Solo and Acoustic, The Jeff Massey Way

Update 6/15/10: Enjoy a stream of the entire show by clicking below, courtesy of Joe Perona. Solo and acoustic. A musician has got to have pretty big stones to pull it off. Without a band and effects for distraction, the audience can only focus on the artist, warts and all. They are laying it out there,...
