Styx, Vince Gill, 5th Dimension and More at the NY State Fair

The 5th Dimension, featuring Florence LaRue, performed at the New York State Fair's Chevy Court Stage in a heatwave that felt more like down 'South' rather than in those 'Yankee' states. They brought out the smiles and tears as they performed their iconic songs 'Up, up and away', 'Stone Soul Picnic' and 'Wedding Bell Blues'.

Mumford & Sons and The Vaccines in Concert in Atlanta

Mumford & Sons, The Vaccines and Bear's Den in Atlanta

Sometimes it sucks being a girl; putting on makeup, fixing the hair just right and (egad!!!) choosing which pair of stiletto heels to wear with the shirt and skirt. In other words, it means I sometimes run late and don't get to where I need to be on time. Such was the case last night at the Mumford & Sons Gentlemen of the Road show in Centennial Olympic Park in Atlanta, when we missed the start time of the opening act, Bear's Den. Hence, no photos of them. Even though we didn't...

Muse in Concert in Duluth, GA

Muse With Cage The Elephant at the Arena at Gwinnett Center in Duluth, GA

I'm a rocker chick! I love good rock 'n roll bands like AC/DC, Foreigner and all the rest of the classic groups with whom I grew up. That said, bands like Muse and Cage the Elephant are opening my eyes to the new generations of rock bands that have had the torch passed to them. I'm finding myself broadening my horizons, and enjoying the pleasure of great shows with performers like these two bands I caught last night in Duluth, GA. Opening the show was Bowling Green, Kentucky's Cage the...

Josh Todd

Buckcherry in Wisconsin

Buckcherry has never been a band afraid to live up to the stereotype of “sex, drugs and rock-n-roll”. However in recent years, the ratio of sex and drugs to rock-n-roll has become considerably more and more unbalanced in favor of rock-n-roll. This was evident as soon as they took the stage at Rock USA in Oshkosh, WI and delivered a proverbial punch in the face to the crowd with a scorching ten-minute rendition of their first major hit “Lit Up”. From that point on, vocalist Josh Todd and guitarist

Avenged Sevenfold in Wisconsin

Formed in 1999, Avenged Sevenfold hit the ground running, and judging by their performance at Rock USA in Oshkosh, WI, they have yet to slow down. With a background that included an enormous replication of their winged skull logo and seemingly-unending pyrotechnics, A7X (as thy are known by their fans) gave the capacity crowd exactly what they expected. In support of their latest release (2012’s Hail to the King), the metal heavyweights from Huntington Beach, CA stopped only occasionally...
A.J. McLean, Brian Littrell, Kevin Richardson, Howie Dorough, Nick Carter

Backstreet Boys, Jesse McCartney and DJ Pauly D At Chastain Park Amphitheatre in Atlanta, GA

Having grown up in the '70's and '80's with classic rock bands like Led Zeppelin, AC/DC and others, I never could understand the attraction my seven year old daughter had to the boy bands when The Backstreet Boys broke onto the national scene in 1996 with their self-titled debut album. After all, it was something completely different from my own musical tastes. That said, seventeen years later I found ...

OneRepublic, Mayer Hawthorne and Serena Ryder at Chastain Park Amphitheater in Atlanta

Having never seen any of the three acts performing on August 15 at Chastain Park Amphitheater, I wasn't sure of what to expect when I arrived - especially considering the variety I saw in the crowd waiting at the doors; lots of teenager girls, mid-twenties couples, and a number of older singles and couples (and no, not all of them were the parents of the teenage girls). I knew it was supposed to be a pop/rock show...
