Chris Bergson Band performance in VT tonight.

We're really looking forward to taking the small trek over to western VT (North Bennington, VT) to catch the Chris Bergson Band @ the VT Arts Exchange 8 PM tonight. If you are in range of the show, it is well worth the experience this rock, soul, blues & jazz infusion. If you cannot catch the band live, definitely pick up its latest cd Fall Changes.

Happy b'day to the late Warren Zevon!

Warren would have turned 62 today. He left us 5+ yrs ago due to cancer. Warren deserves to be in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Ang Lee's Woodstock film.

As the 40th anniversary of the famed '69 Woodstock Festival approaches, we look forward to Oscar winner Lee's new film Taking Woodstock starring Demetri Martin set to be released this coming August. Martin plays the Catskills motel owners' son who helps set in motion the Festival final location. If you have any insight on the Westchester, NY resident's project, please feel free to comment.
