LIVE EVENT COVERAGE: I'm planning
to cover 1 or 2 events a month in Philly.I
do writeups of shows on my website,
and share most photos on Facebook, plus
video on YouTube.
INTERVIEW: I interviewed electronic-rock artist Alex Kelly on Skype this week.
This 25-minute interview covered the gamut about her recent tours, her approach
to music, the making of her exquisite video "Catalyst" and more Hear

Celebrated birthday #43 (yes I count
them all) pretty quietly. 400 of you sent me nice messages on Facebook and just
a few on Twitter did likewise. Thanks so much. I don't exactly know what my year
ahead will be like. I recall making goals at this time of the year and seeing many
of the smaller ones come to pass. This year ahead, I want to build some income streams,
and somehow find a way to get all the bills and debts paid. This may prove to be
my most challenging year.
Also continuing to have slight stomach issues,
enough to keep me from committing to some things. A few folks have extolled the
virtues of aloe vera juice....What is also helping is regularly meeting and meditating
with a marvelous New Age-ish group in Fishtown every month for 2 years.
signed a 1-year lease to stay in my place in Philly. I honestly don't know if I'll
make it through the 1 year but my intuition feels this is where I am to be. I do
not have an exit strategy in the event something happens.
my health and finances are in great shape by mid-March, I might go to a certain
conference/festival that March. As my friend Elaine Silver says, "Nothing is
certain until the check is cashed"...so nothing to be said until I'm absolutely

RCB REVIEW (the annotated version):
RCB Novus Ordo:
About is a band with 4 EPs being released over the course of 1 year, each one representing
the 4 Noble Truths of Buddhism. Flowerland's EP is a re-release from the early
90s. Peaches & Crime presents neo-vaudeville-like sounds. Steven Graves returns
with a new inspirational album.
RCB proper: Garrison Starr kicks off Segment
1. Don Gallardo has Neilson Hubbard in tow on "One Of These Days" on his
new album. Neilson has worked with Garrison on multiple albums. A bit countrified
this first segment was. Among the 2 new music samplers: Say hello to Ethan Farmer,
a virtuoso on bass, who recently has toured with Lionel Richie on his Tuskegee Tour.
Tip of the iceberg, folks. Motion Pictures with a fun pop rock song. Renowned sister
act Moore & Moore give us some classic country. Brian Rogers Band with a catchy
rock song here also. Segment 2: Aqua Cherry with the interesting rhythms on their
song "Ripoff". Wormburner's "Peekskill" is another great road
song, set during winter. I concluded a seven week long focus on the music of The
1861 Project. Segment 3: Rebecca Loebe & Raina Rose have played a monthly residency
at the venerable Threadgill's in Austin. Songs for the sad and downtrodden in this
segment, notably from Evangenitals. Final segment includes an ode to Janis Joplin
and a couple of political songs. Now that you've read about it, give it a listen!
