Whoa Nellie!

In non-music related news, my hero Keith Jackson has retired from broadcasting. When I started college with my dream of becoming a play-by-play announcer he was the person I looked up too (even though he still can't pronounce WISCONSIN correctly). Anyways, he was great on Saturdays and I'm gonna miss hearing him.

Pearl Jam On The Record

Even though I'm not sure what to think on Pearl Jam's "World Wide Suicide" I'll be more than happy to post this video that was sent to me yesterday. Check it out, it's pretty sweet especially the Eddie Vedder interview.

The Brimleys

As I migrated North for Easter break I was met with a big suprise that pretty much satisfied me for most of the weekend. I was able to check out two shows at some local drinking establishments in Cedarburg. The first night I caught the tail end of Marc Ballini and then was quickly blown away by The Brimleys. They played another great show the following night at The Roadhouse. The Brimleys made up of Ric Bourbonais (guitar/vocals), Brandon Colella (bass), Rob Shively (keys/guitar/vocals) and Mickey Kennedy (drums) play a classic rock and roll style with the ability to create new levels of energy on every note. Below are a few samples, I recommend "Tidal Wave".

The Brimleys - Tidal Wave
The Brimleys - Nameless
The Brimleys - 5th Avenue

Upcoming show - RAQ

RAQ will perform this Thursday live from the Orpheum Stage Door. It's too bad I won't be able to attend this show.

"The floor was shaking under all the gyrating bodies and dancing feet. Smiling faces of red, blue and green flashed about the sold-out show at Mezzanotte Cafe, 628 N. Salina St., as lights flashed through the club. Raq was in full force: exciting, exhilarating, improvisational. The powerful live show is what Raq has become known for, and it's why fans travel from all around the country to catch their energized act."

Keller Williams - Orpheum Theatre

If I have my luck with work tomorrow I'll be able to catch Keller Williams at the Orpheum Theatre in Madison. I've seen Keller Williams many times, but there is always something that makes me wanna go back to his show. He also plays in Milwaukee on April 12 at The Rave. If you have the chance, the Orpheum is a far better venue. Here are a few songs from his Langerado performance.
