Tori for Gen Y…

We just took a trip down to Bogart’s for my father in-law’s B-day to see Regina Specktor – and boy did she remind me of a little songbird from the eighties named Tori. Obviously the singer is influenced by Miss Amos, but nevertheless, she maintains a singular and unique persona and style that appeals to my senses more than Amos in some fashion…it was a great show…i have to say she is one of my favorite artist (mind yo, i didn’t say product) to come out of 2007…here are some videos:

At the very least, the show was electric…



mind you the camera work is a bit shotty but nonetheless…

Radiohead’s new album is too cool to buy…

Apparently, the new Radiohead epic In Rainbows is so ultra cool you can’t even find it anywhere. Yep the only place to purchase this much anticipated album is on the official Radiohead website.

The band recently decided to distribute it on their own – an awkward move if you ask me, considering the initial release will be a trial release so that the fans can decide how much to pay for it. Huh? Yep…i guess that says something about the quality (or lack of perhaps) that they have assigned to their recent work – they are so confused by what they do they can’t even assign a value to it. Or perhaps it is an arrogant statement about the band itself…hmmm…” how much will people say it is worth?” ” A million dollars???” Apparently they think it is so damn good that they are baffled about what to charge for it… Whatever the cost, the band has decided to keep all sales to themselves (as if they need more money – or clout at this point.)

No in all seriousness, and with no disparage to the band or Mr. Yorke, i am curious to see what is going to be released. I am a fan actually, I’ve just been awaiting something that doesn’t sound like a cacophony of guitars wailing a hymn for the forlorn and misbegotten…perhaps something like the Bends or Pablo Honey? I mean Ok Computer was fantastic and pioneering, I’m just ready for something else…aren’t you?

Killers rain or shine…

Well, the Killers finally came to town in a long awaited event that basically blew our minds. Only problem is that it rained pretty hard throughout the evening. This seriously impeded our picture taking and/or video recording but the audience was pumped and they gave such a charged performance that it was almost a sin to take the time to shoot any footage of the show because you had to peel your eyes away from the performance for seconds at a time.

Brandon flowers might be my idol now…or at least my ideal model for mens shopping…what  is up with three piece suits???

It was the end of the summer and the show to see. Awesome. We even ran into our wedding band front-man. We asked him if he was mad at us…old habits die hard i guess…sorry shucking bubba…

here are some videos – sorry about the quality…it was raining you know.

and another…the encore i think…
