Donora gives you a flash from the 80’s with “And Then the Girls”

Remember the roller rink? I know it’s been awhile for me, but damn does this video, “And Then the Girls”, from Donora, brings back memories from school field trips. Kinda makes me want to get all 80’s-ed out and get down to some White Snake or Bell Biv Devoe. who’s down?
Felix the Hat,
Live Music City, high hopes!


Beatles, Pink Floyd, Radiohead with an irie twist

Who isn’t a fan of at least one of the mentioned bands above?!? Most likely you like all three, but what happens when you give songs like “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds”, “Money”, or “Karma Police” a twist of reggae?

You get the sounds produced by the prominent international band, Easy Star All-Stars. They have managed to take classic songs of our time and make them their own, adding horns, steel drums, strings, an the melodic sounds of the organ. Like reggae tends to do, The Easy Star All-Stars will help you end your day, lifting your troubles away, and giving you that happy uptempo beat that will turn anyone’s frown, upside down. The Easy Star All-Stars will be making their way to downtown Miami, FL., to appear at the “One Love Nutrifest”, on February 18, 2012.


Live Music City, high hopes!

Where have all the good times gone?

They are on the way back, as Van Halen announces the release of their new album and tour dates. The Pulse of Radio reports the review of Van Halen’s new album, “A Different Kind Of Truth”, and  Critic Johnny Firecloud says “That old familiar feeling has returned, the unique flare of excitement that comes from a muscle car rhythm section led by a six-string wizard and a singing sexual megalodon with an ego that made Kanye look like a kid flaunting his new Spider-Man underoos — and the pipes to back up the strut.”
