The Bravery and Incubus Concert

The Bravery and Incubus – West Palm Beach, FL : 8/29/2007 Sound Advice Amphitheater The Bravery has been branded a Cure cover band; with some critics discrediting their relevance in bitter prose. I think this is dismissive of a band that exhibits real talent through energetic synth-punk songs and an invigorating stage presence. The band…

Oodles of Bands – Oodle.com BandTracker

I think everyone has been through this scenario: get wrapped in your busy life, forget to check for area shows or concerts and then miss one of your favorite bands when they make it to your city. Damn. That has happened to me more often than I would care to mention. The problem is the…

Kanye West – “Money Right” RMX

Kanye West is no doubt one of the most innovative & talented hip hop icons to come along. Since his first album you just cannot deny that he speaks the truth. He also sells records without anyone getting shot, stabbed, or worse. Peep this RMX that Kanye has blessed Skope with. Aight, holla then! Kanye…

Stoli Razz – The Brits Are Acting Up!

As a proud member of the music scene today I just had to rant about 3 British musicians that are really a disgrace to our fine music scene all over the world. Lets face the facts here, people love to party. We love to have a good time and let loose. People have their own…

Cry Me A River Okkervil

Here is another reason Austin is dubbed the music capital of the world. The band Okkervil River. Superb indie rockers with their banging drums, and plucky chords serving as background to lead singer Will Sheff’s anguished vocals. It’s cling-clang indie pop that epitomizes the forlorn teenage squalor of a John Hughes fillm. Listen and love.…

Kweller and Fite at Culture Room

Hello Last night was the Tim Fite and Ben Kweller show in Fort Lauderdale. It was some real good times. Unfortuntely we missed Fite’s set. Total bummer! We got there at 10 PM and he had gone on at 9. Dammit I do hate when that happens; with me it seems to able all too…

Bat For Lashes

Natasha Khan from Bat For Lashes brings a lush voice to simple electronic backbeats and samples. The British songstress combines stories of heartbreak and fantastical imaginings into a brilliant emotive  composition. This video of “What’s a Girl To Do” was  inspire by Donnie Darko. Animal heads on BMX bikers! How strange and how cool. Watch…

Tim Fite Coming to South Florida

I am looking forward to seeing Ben Kweller and Tim Fite at the Culture Room in Fort Lauderdale on August 11. I got some media passes from my friends at Epitaph after I did the story on Fite last month for Skope Magazine. If you haven’t checked it out in print you’re in luck, I…
