Girl Talk: 6 March 2011 - Chicago

It’s hard to walk away from a Girl Talk concert and not be a happy camper. Even better, once this party’s over, there are no beer cans to clean up before mom gets home.

Ra Ra Riot: 5 October 2010 - Chicago

Ra Ra Riot offers an originality that I haven’t heard in a long while; a kind of originality that makes the listener appreciate music on a new level.

David Gray + Ray LaMontagne: 25 August 2010 - Chicago

One would struggle to find a better place to be on a Wednesday evening: downtown Chicago in the beautiful Millennium Park, with a double bill featuring Ray LaMontagne and David Gray.

Lollapalooza: 6 Aug 2010 - Chicago

Yes, Lolla was bigger than ever this year, but was it better? In a word, yes.

James Taylor and Carole King: 24 May 2010 - Chicago

It was a night of great respect, mutually, between the people in the seats and those on stage, a respect that can only be earned when you have more than 130 years of experience.

Florence and the Machine: 12 April 2010 - Chicago

Florence Welch and her five-member band sold out the 1,300-person, four-story, House of Blues in Chicago and I have a feeling the next time she rolls into town, the venue will be three times the size.

Ben Folds: 20 April 2010 - Chicago

It’s evident how much he loves being a musician when he can take the stage, just Ben Folds and His Piano, and literally become a one man band.

Reviews

Camera Obscura: 4 April 2010 - Chicago

Proving that success in 2010 isn’t contingent on using sequencers and groove boxes, Camera Obscura gets it done using violins and solid vocals.

Guster: 5 November 2009 - Cleveland, OH

While the Lost and Gone Forever Tour has only two sold out stops left, it was great time to go back, reminisce, and party like it was 1999.
