Cork-Fest must not have had as much of a ring to it as I thought it did. This one is interesting because, well, one might ask why the Kings Of Leon would be the lead headliner along with The Black Keys and Furthur.  Furthur? Come on ... Read More

Reverend Justito Presents His Top 5 Concerts of 2010   I have been attending concerts non-stop since 1996.  2010 has been a wonderful year of music.  Not that I have the time to keep track of such a statistic, but I do believe that I have seen more shows in 2010 than any other year of my life.  It was not easy to narrow down my top five shows from this year, and chances are this list would be different if you asked me ...

Joseph Arthur 01/23/10 The Troubadour - West Hollywood, CA Words/Photos/Videos by Reverend Justito/concertconfessions.com As I shared here recently as a FROM THE VAULT post, the last time I saw Joseph Arthur, we didn't really connect.  In the weeks and months that passed after that warm summer night, I actually began to get angry.  What was wrong with me?  I have listened to this man and his music time and time again and I allowed weird vibes and distractions ruin our brief time together.  Not permitting ...

Ben Harper Gets Relentless at the Fox

Categories: Reviews

Ben Harper and the Relentless 7 09/17/09 - Fox Theatre: Oakland, CA Words/Photos by Jhallead Ben Harper is my favorite.  I have been a fan of his since he opened for Pearl Jam in 1995.  I have always loved the fact that although he is an outstanding person and musician, he did not get incredibly big in the music world.  This means that I can typically get very up close and personal at his shows.  This show was the closest I have ever gotten which ...
