Gigs of 2013, part three

Sunday, December 29th, 2013

Only three parts to my year's gigging. I missed a few gigs I would have liked to attend, but made it to others I may not have gone to. I think I've had a pretty good year of live music overall, but it may be getting more difficult to know ...

Music of 2013, part four

Sunday, December 1st, 2013

An actually timely and perhaps final set of reviews for the year, for budgetary reasons. And it's a good end to the year, with some decent albums from new and old bands alike. There's still plenty more out there to listen to as well. It's been a long wait for the ...

Music of 2013, part three

Sunday, November 17th, 2013

I'm lagging behind on this year's music choices again. I blame my lateness in still not being able to differentiate Ghost Outfit and Gauntlet Hair when they're playing. Or that I am finding it difficult to define either. But I've given it a go. Now I can move on to ...

Gigs of 2013, part two

Sunday, September 29th, 2013

All I had to do was write up the XFM Exposure night at the Barfly and this post would have been complete back in July. But, no, that was too much like hard work. Still, here it is now. And So I Watch You From Afar at The Garage Lighting guys are ...

Music of 2013, part two

Sunday, September 22nd, 2013

Sometimes I need a while to fully appreciate an album before I'm ready to review it. Often I'll find that reviewing music can just be a bit difficult without sounding trite. Sometimes I'm just lazy. Whatever the reason this time, I've finally got around to reviewing the second batch of ...

Music of 2013, part one

Sunday, June 9th, 2013

I had two-thirds of this initial review written by March, and I thought I was going to get a good jump on my posting of music I'm listening to this year. Then I got kicked out of my groove, like a needle skipping on a record, and ended up listening ...

Gigs of 2013, part one

Sunday, April 14th, 2013

More gigs! Some familiar bands, some new, and a couple known for their recordings but being seen for the first time. It's a mixed bag. Toy, Charlie Boyer & the Voyeurs, Novella at the Scala There's been a buzz about Toy for a while, but I procrastinated long enough about going to ...

Music of 2012, part four

Sunday, February 17th, 2013

I was aiming to get this final review of my 2012 music purchases out for the end of January, in a bid to make it somewhat timely, but again have fallen behind schedule. That's okay, though, as January has been pretty dry and I don't have any new music to ...

Gigs of 2012, part three

Sunday, December 30th, 2012

My final set of gigs for the year had a busy month of November, which turned out to be not quite as busy as I expected, thanks to illness. I still managed to squeeze in a bunch of gigs, and had some good nights out. There were a couple of ...

Music of 2012, part three

Sunday, December 9th, 2012

No post about my adventures in EVE Online today. Blame Vectid for that, and maybe my continuing desire to hear new music. But mostly Vectid. I have another collection of albums from this year that I've been listening to and, for the most part, enjoying. And I have one or ...
