It's no secret that Parsonsfield are among my favorite artists making music and performing today (I waxed rhapsodic about them here and here). I had the opportunity to give their new album, entitled WE, a listen prior to its release, and it was everything I've come to expect from them plus some. "Through sincere and… Continue reading New tunes – WE by Parsonsfield
Apparently I'm worse at following through on things than I thought. I wanted to participate in Xtra Mile Recording's 30 Day Music Challenge during November, following the chart below, but I think I got to the 5th before fizzling out. Rudy had the right idea though - make it a blog post (I'd link to… Continue reading #XMR30Day
The last time these guys made an appearance in my blog, they kind of got the short shrift. They closed out a busy two weeks of traversing the east coast and, in much the same way I collapsed, exhausted, on the couch when I finally got home, I lost all momentum in writing my recap.… Continue reading With eyes closed tight, I swing with all my might
I know, I know. Seeing as how I'm recounting events that took place a month ago, this is a little overdue. (See my previous post for my excuses.) But I would be remiss if I didn't at least mention my last excursion for 2016, especially considering that it includes some of my favorite people. But… Continue reading The best kind of distraction

And then Frank himself shared it. That post… Continue reading In pictures
3 months 12 shows attended 28 artists seen 7 states traversed 2 road trips that weren't centered around a concert 5 beaches lounged upon 20 (at least) soft pretzels consumed over 1000 photos taken over 4000 miles driven dozens of friends made hundreds of memories made What did you do this summer?
I'm very nearly finished with my whirlwind month of long car rides that end either in beautiful locales or at the foot of a concert stage. I'm tired, I haven't really known what day of the week it is since mid-July, and my house desperately needs to be cleaned. But despite all that, I don't want it… Continue reading “Pure potential in a soiled white shirt”
I should be going to a concert tonight. Should be. I even rearranged my schedule to accommodate it. But this is one of those rare instances where irksome, distasteful adult things - you know, work and responsibility - have taken precedence. I'm disappointed but not too bitter, considering that I've seen this particular band before and… Continue reading “Engineered to restore your faith in rock and roll”
