Garth Brooks, Kelly Clarkson and Trisha Yearwood live at Allstate Arena

I have to start with saying "WOW." I saw Garth Brooks live in 1996 performing in Lansing, Michigan. He was just as good 18 years ago as he was tonight. The house was packed floor to ceiling. Not one person sitting in their seat. Almost every person knew every word to every song. Garth started ... [Read More]

Slayer

Slayer LIVE in Chicago

"Fuck all that shit; Slayer was fucking awesome!"

What can be said about tonight that hasn't already been written? Metal isn't dead, the crowd was fantastic, and the band simply rocks. Slayer has been out there since the 80s, and unlike another all too obvious heavy metal band out there, the years and success haven't corrupted the energy or quality of Slayer's performance.

Movie Reviews
Into The Woods (2014)

Into The Woods (2014)

Into the Woods takes a spin on several classic fairy tales with a modern twist and brings them together into one musical journey. I found this movie starting out on a journey that just kept falling apart as every scene past or note was sung which brings the story into some very suggestive, adult themed tones that is definitely not for the entire family. I sat down with my wife and 6 year old and were looking forward to another Disney classic but found ourselves extremely disappointed. From the beginning the characters and story aren't interesting and are quite jumbled leaving an uneasy feeling with how they tarnish beloved stories that have been part of the Disney legacy....[Read More]
