November 10-12, 2011 Indianapolis, IN The Percussive Artist Society International Convention (PASIC) is one of those events I look forward to every year.

August 25, 2011 Chicago Theatre I had not received a copy of the new record yet, nor had I heard a song off of it. Sometimes, that is the best way to see a show – when you don’t know what is coming next. I am familiar with Susan’s and Derek’s work separately so I […]

Ah yes, driving into the city right at the start of a Cubs game is right at the top of a long list of things I’d rather not do ever, but today was the exception, new Shure endorsers Yeasayer were in town for a sold-out Metro show. I was notified ahead of time that I would […]
