2016 Lebanon Country Fair

August usually brings hot and humid weather to southern New England.  Along with that, the month also brings one of the first country fairs of the season – the one in my hometown of Lebanon, Connecticut.  On August 12-14, 2016, the 57th Lebanon Country Fair happened – and that weekend would bring heat indices well over […]

Visiting Outer Space

No, there’s no rockets involved here – I stayed on terra firma.  But I did go to a place called The Outer Space in Hamden, CT.  Good friend Steve Rodgers (of Mighty Purple fame) recently opened a bar in Hamden next door to his live music/coffee house The Space, and I decided to head down […]

9/11 Part II – Dancin’ with the Brothers Donovan

Zenos Eros, GNO, and Styrocultural Antidote at The Annex in Willimantic, CT

As a huge fan of indie original music (not cover band crap), I was pleased to find out that there was a great benefit show going on just up the road at The Annex in Willimantic on March 24th featuring some old friends. The lineup was Hugh Bluemfeld (I only caught part of the last […]
