Appreciating The Evolution of Incubus – Concert Countdown

It’s despicable, it’s wrong, and it’s gutless… that I haven’t seen either of my favorite bands live in concert. Of course, that will change this month, when I Incubus perform on August 19, in Atlanta, as part of the Honda Civic Tour.

One of their better and more experimental songs is “The Warmth” from their third album Make Yourself. The … Continue reading

Debut Band of the Week: Ra

In an effort to be more active on this blog, I am starting a new trend called “Band of the Week.”  The title is pretty self-explanatory; every week (or more realistically, every 7-12 days), I will post briefly about a certain band and give a short profile as well as some song samples.  I will … Continue reading
