Localchella is coming

It’s being called Goldenvoice presents April but it’s always been known as Localchella.  Bands that are locked in for two weekends at Coachella venture out and play local venues.  It’s a great way to actually see bands in an actual club with an appreciative audience.  Go figure.

2 For 2uesday: Oscar edition

I love awkward performances and these two performances on the Oscar show have stayed with me because they were so out of the ordinary. This first one is endearingly awkward as Elliott Smith comes out of the indie underground to play to a mainstream audience. The song is Miss Misery and it comes from the […]

2 For 2uesday: Valentine’s Day version

Since the Prince camp has released most of his music for streaming I wanted to post a couple of songs for this special day. I think most of his love songs refer to a Higher Being but there are a few that are unmistakably meant for getting down.  Here are two of my favorites. From […]

Streaming Prince

The floodgates have opened and Prince music is now available on ALL streaming services. Bruno Mars did a fine job doing his version of Let’s Go Crazy.  The Time were fun recreating their moves from Purple Rain on last night’s Grammys.   However, it just made me miss Prince all that much more knowing that […]
