Review: Oakland A’s playlist

The Oakland A’s currently have one of the youngest rosters in all of baseball. The team’s also got as much of the rock & roll spirit as any team in the league! Former A’s infielder Scott Spiezio has his own band, starting pitcher Barry Zito is a big music lover who spends most of his […]

Review: Cheerleadr

The first thought one thinks when hearing the band name, CHEERLEADR, is that this band is an all girl band…it’s not – so just get that idea right outta your head! In fact these bad boys are from Canada and they are tearing up the stages in and around Hollywood and Vegas. I joined them […]

Review: What Happened Saturday Nite?

Then it was off to Cindy Pop’s Kittenfreaky show at the Dangerous Curve. There was spoken word and some weird art display where you slide your credit card on the machine and if you were cool enough your name would appear rank-wise on the projected screen. Jesus’ name was on the top of the heap. […]

Review: Rickie Mann – The Little Things

At a first glance at the cd cover you think Stevie Ray Vaughn…and when listening to songs like “Getting Used To Lonely” and “Last Time Blues” on this disc, Vaughn’s influence along with a bit of Steely Dan sound is present on the tracks. Overall, enjoyable music to listen to while downing your Coors lite […]

Review: Willie T and Doctor X – Hogs on Ice

Great cd graphics – tourquise blue, white and black carituratures of the bandmembers as little pigs kicking back, downing brewskies! These guys have a great folky songwriter style to their songs – so much that we could phantom the possibility of this band opening up for “Blues Traveler”. While there’s no website address, here’s their […]

Review: Serah at The Derby

I have to say I’ve never seen so many instruments on one stage at one time, but Serah gave a great performance. Her mellow vocals were well complimented by the backup vocals in a mix of African chants and the powerful voice of her highly animated backup singer. The music was beautiful and the show […]

Review: Raymond – Raymond 01

Mysterious black cd cover with “Raymond” written silver…hummm…got our curiosity. This disc of indie pop with sounds of punk was engineered by Brian Bwon (Juliana Hatfield, Pilot to Gunner) and offers listeners a slight sinister taste of scream to whisper vocals on song “Nonsense”, while “Trust Me” has an intensity of frustration and guilt. Recommended. […]
