Great live music is always best enjoyed with good friends and adult beverages. Should you miss out on a concert event, it's always a bonus when you read a review of the show that was written by:
a) A person who actually likes the band/artist in question.
b) Someone who can convey the excitement of the gig and inject humor into the piece all at once.
Too often, when you open your local paper to see what the latest act that blew through town was all about, it is a huge disappointment. Usually, you get a few poorly scribbled lines from someone who didn't want to be there in the first place.
Red's Concert Reviews totally changes the game.
Red Curtis writes in a very descriptive, conversational style that is always entertaining and makes you feel like you are one of his buddies, beer in hand, watching a great rock show as it's happening.
We have seen quite a few concerts together and his summaries are always spot on.
Check out his blog, as it comes highly recommended and is an excellent read.
