Concert Review: Mieka Pauley

It wasn’t only due to the running water in Club Passim and lack of the same in my apartment last Wednesday night that made me anxious to get out and see folk singer/songwriter Mieka Pauley.

After all, what’s better than buying… Continue reading Christmas Shopping: Joys, Hazards, and Helpful Tips

A Piece of Cake

Upon first stepping into the Orpheum Theatre (located near the Boston Common across from the Park Street Church), I immediately knew that this would be unlike any concert I had previously attended.

Harbus Reviews:

I was excited last week. No wait, that is a horrendous understatement. I was extatic last week. A small child on Christmas Eve wasn’t half as excited as I was. The fat kid who’s just won a lifetime supply of chocolate cake had nothing on me. The excitement felt by a die hard Red Sox… Continue reading Harbus Reviews:

Behind the Glamour

The lights dim and the chatter of fashion industry insiders, celebrities, and socialites are replaced by the thumping sound of dance music.

The Greatest Music of All Time

The title of this article may be very pretentious. However, what is implied by the title is a matter of taste, obviously, my taste. Building a classical music library requires raising the issue of greatness as a matter of budget constrains and at some stage, even space constrains. In my next article, I’d suggest my… Continue reading The Greatest Music of All Time
