Update, Jerry Joseph Album Review, and Bonnaroo Plans

Que pasa?

I’ve moved into working more than full time this year, so the blog has suffered accordingly. You can actually suss out the last 3 years of my life by going back to the start of this page: there’s the post-employment barrage of music news and reviews, followed by the infusion of articles for Glide Magazine, the start of my concert photography dalliances, and the sudden emphasis on craft beer. Now once again gainfully employed, my writing time has significantly diminished. But I’ll still be doing reviews for Glide and going to Bonnaroo every year, and that’s what brings me out of the woodwork today.

My latest album review, for Jerry Joseph and the Jackmormons’ wonderful Happy Book, is now up at Glide. On that same front, I’ll be covering Bonnaroo for them again and tweeting like mad at WoundedTweeter, as usual.

From now on, my blog posts will be given increased visibility via Best Thinking. If you’re a blogger or writer looking for new assignments or a new outlet for your thoughts, check them out.

Bonnaroo 2011 Preview and Links Aplenty

In less than 48 hours we’ll be posted up at the 2011 Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, reveling in the tenth anniversary of the event and bringing it all to you via Twitter and Glide Magazine.  Right now at Glide there’s a special feature written by Shane Handler and I entitled Ten Years of Bonnaroo:  Our Ten Favorite Headlining Sets.  Check it out and see which What stage performances from the past 9 festivals stand out above all of the rest.

Follow us on Twitter and you’ll get a constant stream of updates as we encounter the good, the bad, and the just plain strange in Manchester this weekend.  If that’s not enough, follow along with us and catch streaming sets from the Comedy Tent at ComedyCentral.com.  No word on music webcasts yet, but stay tuned.

Paul Simon in DC Show Review and Bonnaroo Preparations

My review of the May 25, 2011 Paul Simon concert at Constitution Hall in Washington, DC is now up at Glide Magazine!

It is our favorite time of year again here at WMHQ because the Bonnaroo Music Festival is next week!  This will be the tenth edition of the festival and our seventh time attending, and once again we’ll be teaming up with Glide Magazine to bring you extensive daily updates from the event.  As usual, we will also be tweeting live from the festival and keeping you up to date on all things Bonnaroo (follow @WoundedTweeter).  We have also upgraded our photo capabilities, so look for some shots from the event to pop up here and at Glide.  We’ll also look back at great headliners past and break down the schedule for this year’s event, all in the next week – so keep it here!

Leftover Salmon DVD Review and More

Greetings! Here’s what’s new and upcoming…

My review of Leftover Salmon’s live DVD, Twice in a Blue Moon, is now up at Glide Magazine. Also, my ReviewYou.com page has several new reviews of albums by Asher Quinn, Greg Gibbs, Vandell Andrew, and Kimball.

As spring approaches, we’ve got our eye on a performance of Hair at the formidable Durham Performing Arts Center and music in the form of Sharon Jones and The Dap-Kings (3/26) and Jason Isbell (4/19) at the Lincoln Theater in Raleigh.

Looking toward the summer, the Bonnaroo Music Festival will once again serve as the nucleus around which all of my musical plans rotate. Look for a preview or ten here as we stare down the TENTH Bonnaroo and I prepare for my seventh trip to the event. I’ll be tweeting from the festival as well as providing my daily recaps on Glide Magazine, just like last year. I’ll also be attending/tweeting two Phish concerts in North Carolina the weekend after Bonnaroo, and there’s no doubt that many more events will be on the calendar by then. It’s going to be a wild one, stay tuned!
