Mehtab Malhotra: An Outsider's Stumble Through the Musical Poetry of South Asian Ghazal
After a few minutes winding down streets near Green Park, London, I stepped into the Nehru Centre (cultural wing of the High Commission for India). I showed my ticket and wandered in, spending some time perusing artwork displayed in a well lit, high ceilinged room before heading upstairs for the concert. As I entered the room I was washed over with the sudden darkness of a room in which only the musicians were lit, and the faint, sweet scent of rose water that transported me back to my recent br...

The Magic Of Rondé

The Total Package Summer
Anyone who knows me at all knows that Paula Abdul is a huge part of my life. I've been a fan since 2004 and have pretty much followed her to so many events, parties, and television shows that she's be...

Top 10 Music Venues in Ottawa
Every city has that one music venue that everybody loves to go watch a show at, but I'm here to tell you that Ottawa has 10 of the best venues in all of Canada! While Ottawa may not have as many venues as Montreal (over 100) or Toronto (the biggest city by population), the National Capital Region does have its gems. I will only be including venues that are still open so Zaphod's and Ritual will not be included.

Another Rockin45 Summer Of Fun
Now in their seventeenth year, theRockin45s, aka America's Favorite Party Band are showing no signs of slowing down. Their 4 hour marathon sets continue to keep audiences dancing and singing and in Summer the band always kicks up a notch. Known for their high energy, almost punk rock renditions of classic pop covers, the band also has created a huge buzz for their original music. The novelty hit Love Song recently passed 5 million downloads and with a new full length CD due to drop in September ...

Neil Diamond in Indianapolis
Few performers have been on tour for 50 years, and even fewer can play to sold out concerts filled with many who weren’t born 50 years ago. Neil Diamond has managed to accomplish both of these tasks during his 50th Anniversary Tour. The main reason Diamond has grown new audiences and kept old ones is something that was unheard of all those years ago when he started: karaoke. The top barroom activity is loved by all ages and a quick internet search of the Top 10 Karaoke Songs of all time will alm...

The Bad Fire
The Bad Fire has a fantastic story behind it. Even though it is obviously about an abused woman and an angry hate filled man the actual events still make me chuckle. It was a busy night in a hotel where I was working a few years back. I was the Duty Manager and I was in a slightly cynical mood. It's easy to become cynical when you work nights in a hotel, as you are often surrounded by drunk people at their very worst. When they get kicked out of pubs and clubs they come back to where they're sta...
