Get Tickets to the Michael McDonald Concert Today
The Michael McDonald concert phenomenon has taken the world by storm. A versatile and popular performer Michael McDonald first gained notice with his performance as Donnie Yen in the Kung Mangarap Ka's "Reelin' in the Years." This followed the release of his self-titled album. He then joined the group Kung Fu and went on to play on all of their singles, as well as a few B-side songs. He is also a member of the band Steely Dan, along with John Cusack, Walter Becker, and Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
Ink and Dagger
The flyer had led me down the sun-dappled streets past the Red Cross museum to the steps of the First Unitarian Church on Chestnut. The entrance to the basement was around the right side of the building. A slow trickle of kids met at that back door. I joined the line—excited, feeling out-of-place, glancing nervously at the others around me—to pay my five bucks and get my sweaty hand stamped with an illegible red mark. It could have been 666, but I wasn’t sure. And then I was in.
Hindsight Concert Review #1: How To Destroy Angels (Chicago, 2013)
I've been a fan of Nine Inch Nails since 1994, but I have to admit I have sadly missed a few too many of their concerts, as well as this side-project How To Destroy Angels. H.T.D.A. features the two main members of Nine Inch Nails: Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, only Reznor's wife, Mariqueen Maandig is on lead vocals. They are joined by Rob Sheridan, who started with various technical and visual assistance for Nine Inch Nails in 1999, at the age of 19. I just finished watching their performance from 2013, at The Vic Theater, in Chicago, a place I would have been able to walk to at that time. I can't say why I missed it. I vaguely remember maybe having to work, or, to be honest, not being terribly fond of the album they were supporting, Welcome Oblivion.

Red Rocks Amphitheatre: The World's Most Beautiful Concert Venue
Neil Young is our favorite rock artist. On August 5, 2012, we saw him in concert with Promise of the Real at Red Rocks Amphitheatre. It was a spectacular show, one of the best concerts that we have seen and part of the reason for that was the venue. We had seats near the middle of the amphitheater for that show, but as luck would have it, we had the opportunity to see Neil Young again at Red Rocks three years later on July 8, 1015.
Concert Withdrawal, And The Need For Live Music
As someone who has religiously been attending concerts since I was 11, I can tell you firsthand that the pandemic has caused some chronic concert withdrawal. The feeling of being in the crowd amongst others who are all there for the same reason you are, is a special and intimate feeling.
In Metal, chivalry is dead
If you ever spent a winter in New England you know the meaning of the word cold. Red nose, blue lips, Dear God I cant feel my face, COLD. You begin to think that had you gone down on the Titanic it would have been nothing more than a late night dip with friends.
Revisiting J. Lo's Motown Tribute
In 2019, the Grammy’s surprised us all by enlisting the help of Jennifer Lopez for their Motown Tribute. J. Lo surprised us even more by agreeing to do it. The performance itself was...a bit lackluster.
On my sixteenth birthday, my two elder brothers exchanged sidelong glances as I opened a card from them. Inside I discovered a ticket to see Canadian supergroup, Rush, at the NEC, Birmingham. To say that I was excited is something of an understatement. When the day arrived, I could barely stop shaking with anticipation, much to the amusement of my brothers. Since the very first time I heard The Spirit of Radio, probably their biggest and most famous hit, I fell in love with Rush. Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, and Neil Peart were (and remain) my heroes. My brothers and I bought every album, which I, somehow, inherited later. Instead of doing homework, I would listen to 2112, Moving Pictures, A Farewell To Kings, Hemispheres, and so on, at unhealthy volume through my headphones - a move which I now regret, due to the beginnings on tinnitus that are threatening to blight my hearing and sanity.
Lindsey Stirling Brings Christmas Home
It isn’t often that you come across a musical artist that appeals to a wide range of humanity. Sure, “pop” artists are theoretically exactly that but in reality they frequently have limited fan bases that are often not very diverse. It’s even less often that an artist that fits this criteria is a person who rarely sings.
Tim Minchin - Apart Together
I have been a huge fan of this self - acclaimed rock and roll nerd since I was about 15. Although I admit now that I was too young to understand some of the finer nuances of this man's ridiculous, but brilliant brain, I never lost interest in his work.
History & Mystery
Float Like A Buffalo is a Denver based Ska/Funk Rock band that brings unrestrained energy and driving anthems to a growing fan base of devoted listeners. Their impact has been growing for some time and is spilling across the Front Range of Colorado. Fresh off two sold out headlining shows at Red Rocks, and with a new EP due for release in late October, they are having a breakthrough year. On Saturday, October 17th they made their debut at the historic Lincoln Theater in Cheyenne, Wyoming. This famed venue was converted from a film theater that was originally built in 1929. The impressive concert hall typically seats 1,250 patrons and features a beautiful balcony. Their lavish greenroom is complete with antique boudoir furnishings and jukebox. Also, it is noteworthy that the venue did an excellent job enforcing all relevant COVID-19 protocols. Featuring support by Fort Collins based band Great Salmon Famine, and a large-scale production. The evening’s entertainment felt like a return to the emotional spirit of concerts.
