Here's everybody I saw live this year, and what I thought about the shows. I talk a bit about each show and sort of frame where I was in the year with it, and why some shows are more important than others. It's a good year end revue of why live music is important to me, who I'll see more than once, and what it takes for me to walk out of a concert I've paid for.
All of this, of course, means this show is more grab bag than normal, and that's saying something. You'll get prog victory metal, neo country, stand up comedy, electro swing and a whole lot more in a little more than two hours. It's all presented in chronological order, starting from last December and up through today, although the last show I saw was a bit back. What can I say, December's been busy.
I do this every December as the scene show, a reminder of how live music plays such an important part in my life. Take a trip down my memory lane, won't you?
Happy holidays from all of us here at Starlight Society Productions (which is to say, me and my producer/cat Maverick) and I wanted to bring you a show full of a lot of holiday music, but not exclusively holiday music. And I wanted to avoid that sort of stuff you get on the oldies station, or things your parents play to make the family die on saccharine overdose.
So enjoy this one from me to you. Consider it your aural stocking stuffer.
(Which is a nice way of me saying to shove it into your earholes and savor it.)
Good music, perhaps a bit more melancholy of Cliff than we need, but the holiday season always tends to darken my clouds a little bit. But there's still plenty of great music for you to enjoy.
http://www.starlightsociety.com/ - That's me. I've got this little podcast I'm pretty proud of, where I spin records that I think people will love, and sometimes I'm right, sometimes I'm wrong. Give it a listen.
This particular show dabbles all across things to listen to. You'll find something you love here. At least I hope. That's all I'm trying to do with each and every show...
I can't remember how many people read these liners notes or not, so I'll keep it light for this one, and if you read it, you can scold me for making it so short. I'd love the attention. Heh.
The days are getting shorter, less sunlight to keep us up and running. But I'm still here. And I still love you.
Hey folks. Fun little show. Some stuff from Japan, lots of music from different genres and timeframes. A minute or two of me being amazed I've played so little Ben Folds. More from our new favorite person Halsey. A bit of me gushing about a concert from 2015. Lots of fun little things. Have yourselves a happy little weekend.
