Sometimes you just know when a band is about to break out like Wentworth Miller in Prison Break… but that show was terrible. More to the point, one can get that sense with Grizfolk, an alt-rock quintet who gained boatloads of fans (I’m talking a lot of boats) when they opened up for UK juggernaut […]

  It’s bound to happen. Anytime I have an article that deals with Canada, I’m going to mention the importance of the great Rick Moranis. The star of so many 1980s classics gave up acting years ago, but it’s always a good opportunity to praise his work any time I speak of our lovely neighbors […]

I can go weeks, sometimes months, and even a year without talking to my sister. When you’re family, it can be like that. But, it’s easily fixed in many cases once you reconnect, forgive and forget (or not really but move on anyway). With longtime friends the same can be true, and in the case […]

In 2004, Los Lonely Boys broke through the mainstream faster than a vintage Rickey Henderson on roller skates in an ice storm with their inspiring song “Heaven.” It’s hard to believe the “Texican” rock trio dropped that super hit a decade ago. What’s even harder to believe is that this band of brothers (Henry Garza, JoJo Garza, […]

On the surface, Andrew W.K. has made a career out of being a “professional partier,” but if you peel off some layers to that persona, which is very real by the way, you’d find there’s much more to the man than headbanging, long hair, white tees and pants, and the occasional bloody nose.

We live in a self-absorbed, selfie-obsessed world, but I still believe music still has the power to breakthrough no matter how self-involved or how communication-reliant we’ve become.
