Incubus Continues to Bring Complex and Exciting Music to the Stage: A Concert Review

Well I just couldn't keep away... my concert addiction continues... not that I'm really complaining. This time I caught a band I've seen a total of four times now, and will probably make an effort to catch every time they come around because they're a favorite of mine, and they always put on a great show: Incubus.

Zappa Plays Zappa: DVD Giveaway

I was lucky to be offered the opportunity to do something with the Soul of Rock 'n' Roll I have not done before. It's a special event to give something back to the readers... a contest giveaway.

Partnering with Big Honcho Media, the Soul of Rock 'n' Roll is going to be giving away a number of copies of the new Zappa Plays Zappa DVD set. I'm pretty interested in this DVD release myself as I heard that the ZPZ tour was just incredible, critically acclaimed and a lots of fun, so I thought that being able to give away a few copies to some lucky Zappa fans would be pretty cool.

Zappa Plays Zappa: A DVD Review

There's been a number of amazing concert tours in the past few years... many of which I was lucky enough to attend. Certainly up near the top of the ones I wish I could have seen is the Zappa Plays Zappa tour. Critically acclaimed, this project was the brain child of one Dweezil Zappa, who put together an amazing band, complete with a few special guests, to tour performing the music of his late father, Frank Zappa. Having not been able to see Frank when he was still performing, I thought this was a really cool idea and was looking forward to catching a show.
