Linkin Park/Thirty Seconds to Mars/AFI September 5, 2014 Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion Houston, TX

September 17, 2014

Let me start with a caveat. I am a huge Linkin Park fan. I have seen them on the last three tours and have found inspiration in their music since they first hit the scene. That being said, I felt it was really important to be hyper critical and look for any flaws I could find so […]

Gotye Verizon Theatre Grand Prairie, TX October 12, 2012 Having heard rumors that the Verizon Theater in Grand Prairie was sold out for weeks in advance of the Gotye concert, I was astonished to see that the venue wasn’t even half full and the upper sections above the luxury boxes was curtained off to create […]

There are times as a music writer that you have to do social experiments in order to make sure you’re not pushing yourself into a corner.
