I saw Melissa Ferrick last night at City Winery New York. These pics aren’t from that show, though, because what should have been great seats were ruined by City Winery’s decision to install an enormous piano pretty much right in front of where I was sitting. Bah! So these pics are from Melissa’s show at the Bell House in Brooklyn in May 2013. Forgot I had these pictures!

(And if you’re not familiar with Melissa, rectify that now!)

I had a very productive (and very expensive) concert ticket buying day: I’ll be hitting up the Carnivores Tour in Camden, Holmdel, Wantagh, and Hollywood Bowl! Looking forward to replacing some of my favorite pics from the last time I saw Linkin Park with some new favorite pics!

And this, my friends, is what the best concert ticket of my life (and the second best show I’ve ever seen) looks like: Justin Timberlake @ Madison Square Garden (2.21.14).

P!NK performing “Try” @ The Prudential Center in Newark, NJ during her Truth About Love tour. I’ve posted more of my pictures from the show to a set on Flickr.

Pre-flight P!NK during her Truth About Love tour stop at Prudential Center in Newark, NJ (12.11.13). I’ve posted some other pics from the show to a set on Flickr (and I’ve got more to come — just need to find the time to process them)!

Celebrated / mourned the announcement of Motley Crue’s Final Tour by finishing processing my photos from their Intimate Evening in Hell residency in Vegas! Head over to Flickr for my full set of pics from the show!

I’m working on a set of pictures from the “Home Sweet Home” confetti blizzard at Motley Crue’s Intimate Evening in Hell residency at The Joint at the Hard Rock in Vegas. The second two pictures in this set likely won’t make the cut, but I kind of loved them and wanted to share!

Jay Z in Brooklyn - Night 2: Another great show by Jay Z, but *much* preferred the vibe on Sunday night! Next up: Newark some time next week!

I’ve been to so many shows that have been so great in so many ways that I’d pretty much given up on the idea that I’d ever be able to identify a single show as Best Ever. But all that changed last night: Jay Z’s Magna Carta World Tour stop at Barclays Center in Brooklyn was hands-down, no questions asked the best show I’ve ever seen. It had everything: Great music, performed exceptionally well. Artist so psyched to be there and so obviously enjoying himself on stage in such an unlikely venue — just a few blocks from where he grew up. Crowd so absurdly hyped up that half the place was on its feet an hour before the show started, singing along and dancing to the (phenomenal) DJ spinning old school hip hop tunes. And of course, the best live song ever. After seeing JT perform it twice at Yankee Stadium this summer and then again at Barclays Center in November, I’d declared “Mirrors” the best live song ever. But I was wrong. I’d forgotten about “Ni**as in Paris”. *That* is the best live song ever. Check out this insane video, and trust me that it you’re ever in a building with Jay Z and/or Kanye West performing this song, you too will be jumping up and down with your arms in the air, just completely and totally losing your mind. It’s impossible to resist.

Best show ever. Can’t wait to do it again tonight!
