Just want to wish everyone out there in Internet-land a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.

Better Than Ezra Still Puts on a Pretty Fun Live Show

Never one to pass up a good concert if I have any choice in the matter, I have once again been attending musical events with vigor. This time it was a band that I've seen a few times before and they've always put on a good, fun, high energy show: Better Than Ezra.

First Track from the Smashing Pumpkins Epic, Teargarden By Kaleidoscope

During the time the Soul of Rock 'n' Roll was being redesigned and reborn, there was a lot of music news that I didn't get to discuss. One of the most exciting (at least for a big Pumpkins fan like me) was the announcement that the Smashing Pumpkins would be releasing their next album, a 44 song epic called Teargarden By Kaleidoscope would be released a song at a time online.

Rock and Roll Feature: 30 Years of London Calling and the Clash

This is the thirty-second in a series of Rock & Roll features I'm writing for this site. I'm a rock and roller, so this column is a way for me to feature a different album that I like, from different genres every month.

Carnival of Rock and Roll-December 2009

Well last month with the return to regular carnivals, we had the biggest carnival I've ever seen... and this month, perhaps ironically, we have the smallest. In fact, the carnival this month contained so few submissions I thought I forgot to make it available on BlogCarnival.com, but I didn't. I thought maybe there were problems with my carnival email, but there aren't.

The Mars Volta, an Incredible Live Experience

It was well over two months ago that I was lucky enough to see this band live. I meant to write a review almost immediately, but between site overhauls, other issues and a series of delays, this is the first time I'm actually getting around to doing so properly. Consider it a testament to how much I enjoyed this show that I'm still writing a review so much later.

The Mars Volta Tear it Up Live With Rapid Fire Psychedelic Style

A few months prior... before the site overhaul, many unique circumstances and many many more delays, I went to a concert. That by itself is not all that uncommon as I go to a number of concerts every year and will certainly go to more every year in the future.

First Listen to Them Crooked Vultures, Streaming Online

Exciting rock news in the past few days/weeks/months. What is easily one of the most exciting super groups of all time, Them Crooked Vultures, announced that their debut album will be officially released in just a few days on November 16-17, 2009. I don't know about you all, but I've got my copy on pre-order and have been anxiously awaiting that very first listen.

Rock and Roll Feature: SRV and Double Trouble Bring a Blues Flood Right out of Texas

This is the thirty-first in a series of Rock & Roll features I'm writing for this site. I'm a rock and roller, so this column is a way for me to feature a different album that I like, from different genres every month.

Carnival of Rock and Roll-November 2009

Well now that the Soul of Rock 'n' Roll has returned in all it's rockin' glory, it seems about time for the Carnival of Rock 'n' Roll to return from it's dormancy as well. This carnival was definitely an interesting one to sort through though.
