Hockey Night

Just thought I'd share this picture from my trip up to Canada last month. We ended up at a bar that had Bubble Hockey and played all night. Lots of fun.

Friday, May 26, 2006


As Ace Cowboy got to see some history last weekend, I got to see some myself tonight. I've been at Yankee Stadium for some great moments. I've seen them win the pennant twice, been to three World Series games - including seeing November baseball and two walk-off home runs. Also had the pleasure of being on hand for Roger Clemens 300th win and 4,000th strikeout - which both occurred in the same game. Well tonight I got to see one Derek Sanderson Jeter get his 2,000 hit as a Yankee. Ok it was a barely a hit, more like a little roller that maybe went about ten feat but he redeemed himself later in the game with a solid base hit up the middle for 2001 (which they played over the loud speaker after it happened). Nothing like seeing a great player get reach a milestone achievement - hopefully I'll get to be on hand for 3,000 (which would make him the first Yankee to achieve that).

Cheese Dog

Just thought this was a clever logo for the upcoming SCI/Ratdog tour....

Free Stuff...Well For Me

I finally got a free cd from having a blog (hint, hint to everyone reading this) so figured I'd give a plug to the band that sent it to me. The band is Bump and they're new cd is called Incredible Consequence. Here's a quick bio on the band from their MySpace page....

Growing up in the outskirts of the Motor City, it has become Bump's mission to resurrect the sounds that made Detroit a musical Mecca. After the recent years of Detroit's association with garage rock, hip-hop and rap rock, Bump is stepping up to fuse all the famous sounds the city was once known for. Yorg combines the hooks and harmonies of the Stevie Wonder with the stage presence of James Brown, while Chris Sterr echoes the guitar tones of Mick Taylor, David Gilmour and classic Detroit rock. Holding the rhythm section all together is Eric Novak, who drops tasty bass-lines reminiscent of James Jamerson, and Clint Carpenter on drums laying down the groove like the great Stewart Copeland. Bump has taken all of their Motown roots and has managed to create an unusual and unique sound to call their own.

Here's what some have had to say about them and their debut full length... Review

One More Saturday

Was going to write a whole post on my Saturday night hitting both the DSO show at the Nokia Theater and Rana at the Knit, but I'll spare you of most of the details. Needless to say I was in a funk all day Saturday and it was the right move. My last minute decision to head there solo was rewarded by bumping into a friend at a bar pre-show which ended up with me meeting and hanging out with her crew - good times.

Only seen Dark Star a few times and this was the first time with an original setlist. I was really pretty happy with their selections....

Set I

Half Step
Jack Straw
West LA
Run for the Roses
Hey Pockey Way>

Set II

Sailor> @
Saint> @
Other One>
Stella Blue>


Sure you usually going to see this band to see them recreate a show, but hey I was just in the mood to hear some quality live Dead - something about hearing their songs always manages to put me in a good mood. Highlight for me was definitely Jack Straw which they absolutely ripped on. As for the venue - had heard mixed things, but I was digging it. Great sound, speakers in the bathrooms, the floor is slanted a bit so if you're all the way in the back (which we were) you can see the stage no problem, and it seemed like they were pouring heavy mixed drinks. My only issue was beer was all from cans - though Irving Plaza is the same.

After the show wrapped up we decided to head down the Knit to catch Rana - a band that I hadn't seen in at least three or four years since their record release party at CBGB's. We walked in probably twenty minutes into their set and they were rockin' out. Didn't know any of the songs, but was still having a good time. They've definitely morphed into more of a rock band since they last time I'd seen them. Here's a brief review of the show from

On Saturday, RANA returned to the stage for the first time in 2006 for a performance at New York's Knitting Factory. After years on the northeast music circuit, the members of RANA spent the past few months focusing on a number of other projects, with guitarist Scott Metzger joining Particle, drummer Ryan Thornton focusing on Sam Champion and keyboardist Matt Durant gigging with King of France. While RANA speaks out against the sit-in during its "Go Home Hippie," the group invited a number of guests onto the stage throughout its set Saturday including The Antibalas Horns, who performed "Minca Malinca," "Loves It Automatic," "My One Dear Son," and "Bloodshed," as well as the encore of "It's So Hard (Believe Me)," "Good Book," "Not So Mopso" and "Backstage Pass." Later Dan Piper played lap steel on a number of songs beginning with "I'm Not Orfeo." Referencing its semi-hiatus, RANA also debut Durant's new original, "While Sam Champion Owned the Bowery."

Didn't stay for their whole show, but enjoyed what I heard and would definitely go and see them again soon if they find the time to get back together for some more shows. So ended up having a great night after a sub par day - thanks Jenny!!

Bust Out The Hula-Hoop - Update

Apparently I spoke too soon yesterday about the SCI tour. They will now be teaming up with Ratdog who will be on the road with them for most of the tour. The two bands will alternate headlining spots throughout the tour - guess Bobby didn't want to be out done by Phil this summer.

Now I may have to hit one of the Radio City shows.

Pearl Jam @ Irving Plaza Reviews

Head on over to Brooklyn Vegan for some reviews and pictures from Friday night's Pearl Jam show at Irving Plaza. Check it out here.

Seeing Pearl Jam in less then a month out in the Jerz with My Morning Jacket. Never seen them before, looking forward to it. I missed out on the whole grunge thing and I really don't have any legitimate excuses for it. I was in high school when Ten came out and should have been full of teen angst, but I think I was too busy listening to Billy Joel cds to pay attention to other things - I've certainly made up for lost time though.

moe.down, vol. 7

Here's initial line-up for the 7th installment of moe.down...

Umphrey's McGee
Grace Potter and the Nocturnals
The Avett Brothers
Apollo Sunshine
Toubab Krewe
Before Cowboys
Mike Rocklin

Early bird tickets are now available at moe.ticketing for $80. I've only heard great things about this fest - so if you're a moe. fan and have nothing to do Labor Day Weekend you should strongly consider it.

Radiohead Tourdates

I know it may be blasphemous to say that I have a music blog and I'm not much of a Radiohead fan - it's like saying I still like the Arctic Monkeys. I think I decided I wasn't going to like them when OK Computer came out just because everyone was gushing over it. Inevitably though when my roommate has put his music on random play and a song comes up that I'm digging and have no idea what it is it's Radiohead - so maybe I should start listening to them, I'd probably actually like them. Anyway here's the initial dates for their summer tour. They're playing a bunch of small theaters for now....

06.01.06 - Tower Theatre - Philadelphia, PA
06.02.06 - Tower Theatre - Philadelphia, PA
