CONCERT REVIEW: ELOHIM AT THE SINCLAIR, CAMBRIDGE, MA: 10/11/16

This past Tuesday night, October 11th, 2016, I was fortunate to catch the young woman who calls herself Elohim live. The mysterious singer/songwriter/electronic musician is currently out on tour with EDEN, but I’d had insomnia the night before and was too tired to stay and check out his set. I was admittedly unfamiliar...

CONCERT REVIEW: PURO INSTINCT AT GREAT SCOTT, ALLSTON, MA 7/3/16

by Michael McCarthy Back in 2011 sister duo Puro Instinct rolled into town and played Great Scott in Allston, Massachusetts, which is considered part of greater Boston.

CONCERT REVIEW: KACEY MUSGRAVES AT MOHEGAN SUN: 2/21/16

This past Sunday, the 21st of February, I was treated to an invitation-only Kacey Musgraves concert at Mohegan Sun Casino in CT. I’m not sure how I got invited, as I’m far from being a high roller, but needless to say that I’m quite happy that I was. Especially since the concert was...

CONCERT REVIEW: SKID ROW AT MOHEGAN SUN: 11/6/15

NOTE: I apologize for the poor quality of the photos.  You can’t exactly bring a professional camera into a casino, less they think you’re taking photos so you can make plans to rob the place.  So, I had to make due with the camera on my Kindle, which isn’t very good and is...
