Weston {Live at Highline Ballroom}

Weston Highline Ballroom July 6, 2011 Weston was one of those bands that should have been huge. They had the sound of Blink 182, the lyrics of Green Day, and the look of Sugar Ray. Sadly, the band fell apart after taking a more mature direction, and a whole generation of punk rockers missed out on this awesome pop-punk quartet. Luckily, the band saw fit to reunite for a few sold-out shows over the past few years, culminating in an...

Pennywise at The Starland Ballroom

Pennywise Starland Ballroom September 7, 2010 Pennywise is one of those bands that will never change. They are like the Iron Maiden of the punk rock industry: You know what you’re going to get–be it at their live show or on wax–these guys basically defined the South California hardcore sound and they aren’t about to add keyboards to their line-up or start mellowing out. So when the band’s singer, Jim Lindberg, threw in the...

So, when I get an invite to check out an up and coming rockabilly diva at an NYC show, I do not turn it down. In the case of Imelda May, the show lived up to the hype. May is a country crooner straight out of the extremely not western-style country of...

Green Day at Madison Square Garden

Green Day/Kaiser Chiefs Madison Square Garden July 27, 2009 Click to view more photos from show Thousands of fans packed NYC’s biggest venue for two evenings of stellar punk rock courtesy of a band heralded as this generation’s U2, and judging by the audience reaction at MSG, the band is more than worthy of the moniker. The band is currently on tour supporting their latest release “21st Century Breakdown,” so...

The Mummies at Maxwell’s and SouthPaw

Mummies/Back CC’s June 9, 2009 – (two sets) Maxwell’s, Hoboken, NJ June 10, 2009 – Southpaw, Brooklyn, NY “So why do you think they played here in 2002?” I turned around and saw my friend Jan laughing, as he brought over Maxwell’s and Telstar Records owner Todd Abramson to ask me this. I climbed drunkenly over another friend and sat on the top of the booth seat.  “Well,” I said, “it was listed on their website and I’m pretty sure I...
