Review

The one thing about running this website is getting all sorts of free CDs. My car is littered with CDs I have received. I must admit that sometimes when I get a CD I am not looking forward to popping it in my CD player. Will this suck? Will I have to sit through 45 minutes of crap and then try to write a review that seems nice yet lets the reader know I hated it? It is an art I have tried to perfect- Letting the reader know that this band is the next piece of crap to come around while at the same time making the band think I liked them so I don’t get beat up in the parking lot after shows. This past week a buddy gave me a CD by TigermanWOAH!. The title of the CD is “Up South Vol.II &I”. Based on the fact that this CD was on a CDR and had sharpie written on the face, I assumed I was going to hate it. I was getting ready with my ‘dodging’ words like ‘Good’- ‘great’- and ‘I bet deaf people will love it’. After listening to this CD I am glad to say I will not need to use any of my tricks. Let me tell you; I loved it. No really, I loved it. SERIOUSLY LOVED IT!!!!!!(or did I?.. no no.. I did.. I really did)

I went and saw the Ron Noyes Band perform this past Saturday at Penuche’s in Concord. Opening was a band Fever Bloom. I always take notes after a show so I don’t forget what I saw- instead of reviewing Fever Bloom- here is a picture of my notes. Can you read it? I should have been a doctor.

Captain Chet Lawson's Snake Oil Revue has been a force in the concord music scene for the past few years. Last night two of the members; the drummer and guitar player, took to the stage as "Two-fifths Chet" to see if a duo would be just as powerful. We contacted a person who was at the show and this is what they had to say:

This past Saturday night the Boston based band Darlingside took the stage in Bicentennial Square. It was Market Days in Downtown Concord and the band was playing the Homegrown Stage. Now, it might seem strange to you to have a Boston based band headline the homegrown stage.. well… it is… but, the drummer of the band is from Concord. So, I guess we will let that one slide, but lets just talk about the band.

Sometimes it is hard to find new local bands to check out. Who are you gonna trust on if a band sucks or not before you pay your hard earned money on a cover charge. Well… you could trust the guys in the band that say they are awesome… or you could trust other local musicians.. I would say trust the local musician. Below we asked a ton of local rock gods to tell us who they are crushing on for local acts…. Check em out.

Boogie on Alice has been on fire these past few weeks. They are finishing up their album at Rocking Horse Studios which should be released by the end of the summer. They played a rocking show at market days on the Homegrown stage in Concord’s Bicentennial Square. On top of all of that they played Penuche’s and broke the unofficial record for most people coming in the door (previously maybe held by someone else [(that might be writing this article {[(although there is some disagreement on facts}])).

Lucas Gallo took to the Homegrown Stage during Market Days this past weekend. As soon as he did, the sky’s opened up and the rain came down. The crowd scattered but the music played on. Lucas was not phased one bit. I can only assume that Lucas is used to people leaving during his set.(kidding Lucas…).

It is not often that you can discover a truly unique style in the singer-songwriter genre. I mean, pretty much you have a guitar and a voice so there is not a lot of room to make yourself truly distinctive. Lauren Hurley has discovered how to make herself musically unique and it is brilliant. Lauren played the Homegrown Stage at Market Days 2013 and I was there… you should have been too.

I don’t want to write this review. I really don’t. I have been talking about the Pat and The Hats SOOOOOO much. A month ago I had never heard of them but now I have seen them live three times. They are the new best thing next to unsliced bread(who ever thought to not destroy my bread by cutting it into small squares was a genius) . Pat and The Hats took to the Homegrown Stage during Market Days in Concord NH this past weekend. Yet again I was impressed. Yet again they blew me away. Yet again I had people asking me who the heck this amazing band was and why they had not seen them yet. Yet again.. yet again.
