It is rare to attend a concert that is truly life-changing. Last night I had the honor and privilege to attend "An Evening with Patti Smith," at the Kaye Playhouse at Hunter College, and can honestly say that I left the show with the desire to become a better human being.  The show was being held in conjunction with her accompanying exhibition Patti Smith: 9.11 Babelogue at the Leubsdorf Art Gallery. Smith was joined on stage with 40-year accompanying guitarist Lenny Kaye, as well as her daughter Jesse Smith on piano. Read More
  Japan is always releasing cool things, but probably one of the coolest and trippiest is Hatsune Miku--Hatsu (first), Ne (sound), and Miku (future) is a name meaning "the first sound from the future". Miku is a Japanese Pop idol and she isn't even real! But, that doesn't stop her from having sold out concerts in Japan, L.A., and an upcoming concert in Singapore.She sings, she dances, and she does all this with an awesome set of flowing aquamarine pig tails. The "girl" can own an audience. Read More

Even though it's unseasonable warm in some areas, I can't help but love this fall/winter time of year and the fact that it's getting closer and closer to the holiday season. While the holidays are close though, the October 25th release of the She & Him holiday album,"A Very She & Him Christmas" is even closer! I'm not exactly decking the halls just yet, but I'm definitely excited for musical holiday goodness to come. Christmas songs have a tendency to get repetitive so I'm always down for new songs or a fresh sound on old classics. Read More
Our first week of tour with CSS has been sooo fun! We are chasing their bus all over the west coast in our charcoal colored Dodge Caravan. This tour we have a drummer with us which is super duper exciting. Lee Free is our drummer, and he is playing a lot of the percussion samples from our record on live drums. We are super happy with the new texture it brings to the show. Blowtorch is at the sound helm again and we are just thrilled to have the family back together. (JD met a few cool vaginas in Portland OR @ The Wonder Ballroom!") Two people came up on stage so far. Read More
