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

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

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

This weekend I am heading out to the 2010 KROQ Weenie Roast. In honor of seeing wonderful artists including Against Me!, Stone Temple Pilots, Deftones and that cute ginger kid who just flashed her boobies on Twitter, I figured I would share some photos from my first trip to the KROQ Weenie Roast back in 2007 (long before I was regularly writing concert reviews). I hope you enjoy - and of course you can expect full coverage of the 2010 event here ... Read More

The 2010 Outside Lands Music Festival - Initial Artist Announcement
Every year I tell myself I shall travel back to the city of my birth and enjoy the Outside Lands Music Festival. The first two years, I had selfish friends decided they would use that weekend to get married (heck, as an ordained minister, I actually married our webmaster during the inaugural year). This year, I will sadly miss out as I will be in the Bay Area the week before for three ... Read More
