ALBUM REVIEW: Stone Temple Pilots – Perdida

You couldn’t blame them with all the past tumult if they played it safe and made another mostly rocking album to appease the fans. However, on their surprising unplugged album Perdida (Rhino), they did anything but play it safe. Continue reading

REVIEW: Stone Temple Pilots – Rival Sons – Ty Bryant and The Shakedown: Live at The Ford Amphitheater

Being a New York City guy, and a big kid at heart, I have always loved Coney Island. I never really equated it with shows, even with the concerts coming to the nearby baseball field and the new Ford Amphitheater on the Coney Island Boardwalk, right on the legendary beach.

After heading over to the venue, the big brick façade of the front-facing the beach doesn’t really give away the big open-air/tent vibes of the venue, with the ocean breeze and waves in the distance. As I found my seat, Ty Bryant and the Shakedown were winding down their set. Always a rocking fun time with him. The sound was noticeably great, with tremendous acoustics and a clear mix emanating from the speakers Continue reading
