MOTU – Roadhouse Jesters

This next CD I received was rather simplistic in regards to packaging. A black and white cover with a picture of 5 people that look like close friends or family even. I am a firm believer in letting the music speak for itself so I popped the CD right in. Motu is the creation of…

Frank Sinatra – Nothing But The Best (REMASTERED)

Frank Sinatra is a musical legend. What could be more exciting than to receive his greatest hits all on one CD. Sinatra is one of those artists that can make any song sound like a hit. I will admit that I am a Sinatra fan due to my obsession with Mob movies and shows like…

She Wants Revenge in Lauderdale

Front man Justin Warfield was sporting a creepy moustache at last night’s performance of She Wants Revenge in Fort Lauderdale. What is up with the moustache trend in the indie rock scene? I live by these words of wisdom “Guns don’t kill people, men with moustaches kill people”.
