Kasabian - 09/27/2014 Terminal 5 -New York City Words/Photos/Videos - Jay Porks On this seasonably warm Saturday evening New York City is lucky enough to be graced with the presence of Kasabian tonight in the Hell's Kitchen section of Manhattan. Back in March 2012 the band was here in this very venue and the night was almost as magical as Derek Jeter's final home game. Tonight we're hoping for some of the same, as we'll be 3,000 deep in the sold out Terminal 5. Bo ... Read More

Watch Kasabian Drive From Coachella to Santa Monica

Watch Kasabian Drive From Coachella to Santa Monica We are posting this video of Kasabian driving from Coachella to Santa Monica for three reasons. 1) Reverend Justito had a blast with Kasabian at Coachella 2) Reverend Justito is obsessed with Kasabian 3) Kasabian basically drives past Reverend Justito’s home in this video and he had no clue they were staying a few blocks away. Clearly he slacked in his stalking duties back in April. That said, stalking Reverend Justito (who is writing this and feels like ... Read More

Kasabian 04/19/12 Bud Lite Concert Stage at Jimmy Kimmel Live - Hollywood, CA Words/Photos by Reverend Justitio There is a line from the Kasabian song “Days Are Forgotten” that has been running through my head since I awoke this morning. Perhaps this line is here because I heard the band sound check the song no less than six times yesterday; perhaps it is there because of a deeper meaning? Hell, it is possible it is there for both reasons. The line is as follows: “Cos I’m ... Read More

I mean this was coming from a fan of the Electric Six , how could I take him seriously?

Finally. After months and months of Facebook groups being started, Twitter accounts being created-England's brightest stars Kasabian , are finally here in North America. Even with tickets to their Terminal 5 show on March 22nd purchased, I still wasn't gonna believe it til I saw it with my own eyes. And at the Ed Sullivan Theater in Manhattan yesterday, when I tuned in at about 12:31 AM, there they were. I'm confident that Letterman pronounces the name of their album "Velociraptor" better than I do, ... Read More

Kasabian Announce 2012 North American Tour For those who are unaware, our founder Reverend Justito is obsessed with Kasabian. Last year he launched a Facebook Group with the goal to bring the band back to America.

This is a first for me Ive ever written a review before so hopefully you will get the jest of it. This has to be one of the strangest yet best venues I have been to see Kasabian play.

The Campaign To Bring Kasabian To North America

Categories: Reviews

For many years now I have been a fan of a band from the United Kingdom. They are called Kasabian, and they manage to make some amazing psychedelic indie alt Brit-pop. While the band has won major awards, played some large stadium/festival gigs across Europe, America for whatever reason has never accepted the band (I blame you RCA/Columbia). In fact, I just happened to find their recent album – West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum on accident, not off ... Read More

Top Five Jay Porks Experiences of 2012 The end of the year brings us empty wallets, fat stomachs and most importantly larger egos than we had the year before. It's because of these egos that people like me put together these year end "best of"  lists. Although as you know, here at Concert Confessions we do things a little differently then other sites. We don't have a Top Albums list, Top Artist list, Male and Female Rookies of the year list we do ... Read More

Coachella Music and Arts Festival 04/13/12 Empire Polo Fields - Indio, CA Words/Photos by Reverend Justito There was a reason I have always avoided Coachella and that reason is the sun. Fact is my white ass doesn’t do so well out in the middle of the desert. So it is fitting that my first trip to Coachella felt more like my hometown of San Francisco versus the Palm Desert. Strong winds, sporadic showers and thick fog were a downer for everyone but me. But enough ... Read More
