Bob Mehr @ Howlin’ Books / Nashville, TN / April 2, 2016

(Author of Trouble Boys: The True Story of The Replacements with special musical guests: Bright Little Field and Tommy Womack) Listening to Bob Mehr talk about The Replacements put me back under the spell that reading his fabulous book had me under. It was also like group therapy to be in a room full of […]

Seven Nights to Rock: Music City Mike’s Weeklong Adventure

In the late 70’s, a New Jersey music writer with the pen name of “Everynight Charlie” tried to go to a concert every night. I often wonder if this is what my life would be like if I were single. Although live music every night is not my ultimate desire, with my wife out of […]

My only connection with his work, however, came from my fascination with “Into My Arms,” a rather firm but sensitive love ballad from 1997’s The Boatman’s Call. […]

ANDREW BIRD: Grimey’s Too / Nashville TN / March 7, 2013

Without having much history with the music of Andrew Bird, I attended his 2009 show at the Ryman Auditorium based on his reputation alone. I failed to be overwhelmed that night and left more impressed with his exciting opening act, the endearing St. Vincent. However, I always remain open to giving an artist a second […]

CAITLIN ROSE: Grimey’s Too / Nashville TN / March 7, 2013

I first heard of Nashville’s Caitlin Rose when TheSunday Times, UK listed her debut album’s “Shanghai Cigarettes” as their #2 song of 2010. This snappy tune made me a fan from first listen. I later enjoyed seeing her open for The Decemberists at the Ryman in 2011 and then headline to a packed crowd at […]
