311 Bring Unity to Atlanta With a Little Help From Their Friends
One band that I've been interested in seeing for a couple years now is 311. And I finally got that chance when I purchased tickets to this show with my own money. I'm fairly positive that this is the sixth installment of 311's Unity Tour, although I could be wrong. I know that last year's Unity Tour featured Sublime w/ Rome And Lambert which I missed because we were out of town ... Read More

Voodoo Music Experience 10/29/11:
City Park - New Orleans, LA
Words/Photos by Reverend Justito
There is something to be said for having an adventure thousands of miles from home. My latest just happened to be a Saturday spent at City Park in New Orleans, LA. For years I have heard of the Voodoo Music Experience yet living 2000 miles away it’s not the easiest festival to attend. While my original plans for all three days fell through, I was able to at least take in ... Read More

Face To Face (w/ The Darlings, Blitzkid & Strung Out) 06/14/11
The Complex - Salt Lake City, UT

About two months ago, I found myself looking at the schedule of events coming to Salt Lake City. I saw Face to Face and Strung Out were heading this way. I was excited about this show because not only was it the first time Face to Face has toured in a while, but also I got to see Strung Out. This band has a ... Read More

Now that's what I call a punk rock show-It's just continuous awesomeness for the Jay Porks Never Ending Concert Series, in which the 47th installment brings us out to Asbury Park, NJ to the Stone Pony “SummerStage” for Social Distortion, a band I've been dying to see forever, but especially since I missed them last year. And since I'm rolling with Pam, the “Pam-Van” is in full effect picking me up from work and headed out to the ... Read More

And the love-hate relationship with this awesome yet dreadful venue continues. As Jim Nantz would say “Hello friends”, and take a seat aboard a train head down the tracks of the 46 installment of the Jay Porks Never Ending Concert Series.. Tonight Me and fellow Jay Porks Experiencer Pam are heading out to meet Terminal 5 in NYC, this time for Rise Against w/ Bad Religion. Now, call me, Pam and my father a few of the crazy ones-but ...

Last time Social Distortion came to town was a few years ago. I went on advice of a friend and had a great time. When they announced the Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes tour I didn't think I could go.
Somehow I got the night off work. I love it when the venues post the set times on the website. Unlike most nights I really did not want to go see a show. However I hopped in the car and headed ... Read More

21st Annual KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas Lineup Announced
The once groundbreaking Los Angeles radio powerhouse has unveiled the details for the 21st annual Almost Acoustic Christmas. For most music fans snobs, the lineup is very average to say the least. Thankfully, most fans of KROQ are not fans of music, so chances are the show will sell out faster than you can scream PAYOLA.
Pre-sales are later this week, but that does not matter as Gibson Amphitheatre will be filled with close and personal ... Read More

Local H (w/ Left Brain Heart) 06/18/10
BriXton South Bay - Redondo Beach, CA
Words/Photos/Videos by Reverend Justito/concertconfessions.com
When it comes to Local H, I suppose I am only allowed to see them perform live in the South Bay. In the mid-1990’s, I saw the band perform at both Kamp KOME radio festivals just north of San Jose, CA. Some 13 years later, I found myself this past Friday night making my first trip to the SoCal South Bay community of Redondo Beach, where Local ... Read More
