Revenue may be up for the concert business this year, but artists seem to be falling down, tripping or flat out being ripped from the stage more than ever this year.  The unpredictability of live events is part of the fun of going to shows.  No matter how rehearsed and prepared the artists are for […]

Teen Idols

Awkward dance moves and haircuts that define gravity.  Those were my first impressions while simultaneously watching One Direction on SNL and the joy it brought to my 12-year-old daughter.  It reminded me of the many teen idols that I’ve enjoyed in the past with the same bizarre dance moves and hair that made the little girls […]

New Music Tuesday
