Secret Bad Boy at Empty Bottle 5/26/2017

As a long-time Ben Joseph fan, I was excited to check out his new band Secret Bad Boy when they opened for Happyness at Empty Bottle on Friday night. I’ve seen Ben play keys and guitar with Ezra Furman + the boy-friends a dozen or so times. He’s always struck me as someone who understands a lot more about music than I ever will, and … Continue reading Secret Bad Boy at Empty Bottle 5/26/2017

Ezra Furman + The Boy-Friends At Chop Shop 3/2/2017

I hadn’t planned on reviewing this show, seeing as I paid for a ticket like everyone else and didn’t bring the main camera or anything.

While they were completely different experiences, one thing ties them together: Furman’s mindblowing ability to captivate in either setting. In total I’ve seen him over a dozen times, and I can’t wait … Continue reading Ezra Furman + The Boy-Friends at Lincoln Hall 1/12/2017

Ezra Furman at Space 1/7/2017

I’m repeating myself for maybe the thousandth time, but there is nothing greater than seeing Ezra Furman perform in front of a hometown crowd. He’s so comfortable and at ease that the show is like an episode of Storytellers. He talks at length about songs and what he’s feeling and it’s amazing. This solo show was no different, and I’m glad I could make it … Continue reading Ezra Furman at Space 1/7/2017
