For some people, a vacation is a time of relaxation, of escaping the real world and the responsibilities that come with it. Some visit with friends and family. Others travel to new and exotic locations around the world.

Me? I take a break from my day job to cover four concerts in five days, in two states and the District of Columbia. (more…)

Chevelle has been a quality band for a decade now, consistently putting out dark, moody, accessible hard rock along the lines of what Tool might do if they took their sound in more of pop direction. But aside from a couple songs on their breakthrough album Wonder What’s Next (2002), Chevelle’s first four records never quite grabbed me the way my favorite music does.
