Foxy Shazam - 05/30/2014
Bowery Ballroom - New York City
Words/Photos/Videos - Jay Porks
The day had finally come. Foxy Shazam have returned to New York City. You know that we here at Concert Confessions are devout members of the Church of Rock & Roll, myself being baptized three times in 2012. One of the best shows I saw in 2012 was Foxy Shazam at the Bowery Ballroom, so when a show was announced happening in May at the very same Bowery Ballroom it was my ... Read More

It's no secret around the water cooler that Foxy Shazam is one of a handful of bands around these days who can blow your mind. In 2013, The Church Of Rock & Roll continues it's travels, though brief, spreading the gospel into North and South Carolina in March, as well as a Lancaster, PA date in April. As readers know by now, most of us here at Concert Confessions are hoping this is only a prelude to an extensive Foxy tour schedule this year. ... 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

Slash Featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators with Foxy Shazam - 09/18/2012
Manhattan Center's Hammerstein Ballroom - New York City
Words/Photos/Video - Jay Porks
“The essence of “cool” that is Slash cannot be matched”. That's a phrase typed by this very music fan posing as a journalist in a social media world, after walking out on the band currently touring under the moniker of Guns N' Roses during their encore at Izod Center last November. Well, after tonight that phrase cannot sing any more true ... Read More

Fun Fun Fun Fest Releases 2012 Lineup
Judging by the name this should be a good time. Fun Fun Fun Fest is set to return to Austin Texas from November 2-4th 2012. The lineup is pretty incredible seeing as how it is topped by a reunited Run-D.M.C. One must assume with the 10 year anniversary of the death of Jam Master Jay the ground-breaking rap group may be going the hologram route much like Dre and Snoop did with 2Pac at Coachella 2012.

Foxy Shazam- 05/16/2012
Bowery Ballroom -New York City
Words/Photos By Jay Porks
Usually for me, the opening bands at shows are a time for me to get annoyed-quickly. Yet somehow back in February when I saw The Darkness, there was just something about Foxy Shazam. Something about them that made me want to learn more. How long have I been missing out on this? Then, the band headlined there own tour and hit the places like Seattle, and Utah where I was able to read ... Read More

What happens when you cram 200 people into a room the size of a living room and invite Foxy Shazam and friends over? I'll tell you. I had the pleasure of going to one of Utah's smallest venues, Kilby Court on 04/12/12 to check out a "revival". Foxy Shazam, the biggest little band you'll ever see, rolled through my town. They brought along support acts Cadaver Dogs and Maniac.
Cadaver Dogs.....this band is gritty, loud, and a lot of fun to watch. Frontman Mat, ... Read More

Foxy Shazam (9:50 to 11 p.m.)
Less than 24 hours in the Emerald City and a 600-mile drive across the state of Washington and back. That's a small price to pay to see Foxy Shazam, one of the most entertaining bands today.
For an hour and ten minutes, Foxy Shazam delivered the kind of show that only Eric Nally and the boys can deliver. From the moment they started into Church of Rock and Roll until Nally was ... Read More

Foxy Shazam played an in-store performance at Silver Platters (Queen Anne Store) in Seattle on Saturday. Around 100 fans came out to see the band and were treated to a three-song set that included Holy Touch, Forever Together, and I Like it. The event was from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m.
I walked over to the store at 2:30 p.m., which was conveniently located across the street from my hotel, and expected the place to be packed. Surprisingly, there were about 30 people in the store when ... Read More

If you're a regular visitor to Concert Confessions, you may have noticed a recurring theme throughout February.

The Darkness (w/ Crown Jewel Defense and Fox Shazam) 02/19/12
House of Blues - West Hollywood, CA
Words/Photos by Reverend Justito
I have a shocking confession to make. For a brief period in time I lied and claimed I had seen The Darkness when they played at The Roxy. It was silly I know, but I just wanted to be cool. By dumb luck I was out of town when The Darkness returned and played the Fonda and then they broke up and my dream ... Read More

Slash Hits The Road In 2012
After seeing the band currently touring as Guns N' Roses in New Jersey a few months ago, it became clear that there was one thing missing from that stage. And that was someone who is indeed the embodiment of all things cool, that my friends was Slash.
Now it may not be the popular opinion, but this particular writer loved the last record to come from the Slash camp, featuring guest vocalists on each track Santana style.
Now, finishing up ... Read More

On the same evening that New York Jets Running Back Curtis Martin get's elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, can you believe that's only the second best thing that happened today? Well, The 64th installment of the Jay Pork Never Ending Concert Series may have had something to do with that. Tonight brings us to Irving Plaza in NYC for an epic evening with The Darkness! Along with Foxy Shazam (Which 'thenaturalstoner' praises for their latest stellar release), and I ... Read More

Most events held at Crew Stadium in Columbus are trash. I say that because we all know that Ohio State Football is a joke. What is not a joke (minus a few bands) is the lineup for the 2012 Rock on the Range concert. To be held on May 18th and 19th, highlights of the line up include, The Darkness, Down, Megadeth, ...

2011 was a year of many ups and downs and a lot of very unique and diverse shows of which I feel lucky and blessed to partaked in. And hey, nobody died this year. So moving on to number 10.
Number 10: Prof, 08/17/11 The Pageant, Saint Louis, Mo
Prof had impressed me quite a bit the early part of 2011 with a strong performance and a free cd that didn't suck. A few months later he was back opening for Atmosphere, Evidence, and ... Read More

After catching her twice the previous year. I made a little trek across the state to see her at a venue I had not been to for 8 years. She did not disappoint.
It was a awesome set, the one that makes you want to come back out as soon as possible and see another. I ended up doing that and almost died in the process shitty story, moving along.
