Coachella Valley Music and Art Festival :: Indio, CA :: Day Three

Coachella Day 3 After a hard night’s sleep I began my last day in the desert with Shure Endorsers Babasonicos from Argentina.  They charmed the crowd with their bravado and stage presence. After their set I hung out with them and had some lunch at the catering tent backstage. This was to be my first actual […]

Coachella Valley Music and Art Festival :: Indio, CA :: Day Two

Coachella Day 2 After my usual stop at Starbucks and another traffic filled morning, day two started with Shure Endorsers Zoe from Mexico. This is one of my favorite bands. Their psychedelic alt-rock and spacey lyrics are really appealing to me. I definitely think they are one of Mexico’s best at the moment and from the […]

I’ve been attending several festivals and award shows for the better part of my career at Shure. Coordinating these productions is a monumental effort requiring accurate communication and tons of advance work, […]

Pavement in the Park

So, I’m going to come clean and state for the record that I was vaguely familiar with the rock band Pavement when I received a care package from the band’s manager, Peter Arsenault last winter asking if Shure might be interested in supporting a reunion tour slated for 2010. Of course I’d heard the name […]

Zoé :: Congress Theater :: 4/9/10

Shure Endorsers Zoé stopped by Chicago last Friday to play a packed house at the historic Congress Theater while on a cross-country 12 city bus tour of the States. The Mexican alt-rockers rocked the packed house with lead singer León Larregui’s spacey vocals, Sergio Acosta’s guitar mastery, Jesus “Chucho” Baez’s haunting keyboards, Angel Mosqueda’s atomic bass […]

Passion Pit :: Congress Theater :: 4/2/2010

As I approached the back stage door of Chicago’s Congress Theater on a bright and sunny Friday afternoon, Passion Pit was well into their sound check as I could already hear the bending synths from their hit “The Reeling” escaping into the alley behind the venue. Once on stage, it was like watching a group of mad […]
