G Jones at Concord Music Hall 2/21/19

If you don’t know who G Jones is, I’m sure you’re not alone. However, you would’ve felt extremely out of place Thursday night at Concord Music Hall. After sets by Chee and Tsuruda that went a little too long for me, Jones took the stage to a thunderous applause from the crowd of just under a thousand people. He’s a lean figure standing up there … Continue reading G Jones at Concord Music Hall 2/21/19

Candlebox at House Of Blues 2/11/19

morgxn At Concord Music Hall 2/7/19

The reality was a bit more electrifying, with morgxn in almost constant motion while a guitarist broke off riffs and a drummer laid down the beats for a set full … Continue reading morgxn At Concord Music Hall 2/7/19

Jesse McCartney at House Of Blues 1/29/19

I missed the initial popularity of Jesse McCartney. When his first solo album came out it was 2004, and I had just got one of the third generation iPods a few months earlier. Being able to control the music I hear at all times meant I wasn’t listening to the radio anymore, so hits like “Beautiful Soul” and “She’s No You” completely passed me by. … Continue reading Jesse McCartney at House Of Blues 1/29/19
