The Morning After

I managed to get a couple of decent shots last night at LCD but again, nothing spectacular with the Casio.   Once again, James Murphy and company were impressive. A bit more so this time around as James wasn’t sick and they’re nearing the end of the U.S. Tour as they head home to NYC […]

I’m Back and Intact

  My vacation out to the Left Coast was remarkable. You couldn’t ask for a better time. I’m not the biggest fan of L.A. but my sister lives there so it brings it up a few notches. We then headed up the coast, through Santa Barabara and landed in the magical land of Big Sur. […]

Funky Nashville from Denmark

On their myspace page they describe their sound as Americana / Southern Rock / Surf. Just with that description alone I got giddy. I’ve been in a big surf / 60’s era rock mode recently. Southern rock is always at the top of my list and one of my favorite bands if not the favorite […]
