Alex Brumel: "the next big thing" from NJ? For me there is nothing like that feeling of witnessing a stellar performance by a rising star, and just feeling lucky to have seen the performance in a small venue before the artist breaks into the big time. Living in NJ, where there seems to be something in the water that makes good musicians, this feeling happens pretty regularly. Unfortunately, most of the rising stars I see end up toiling around the NJ music scene, playing stellar performances night after the night for small audiences, and never getting noticed, or worse, getting noticed by a major label, and then getting screwed by the label...(more)
Review: Will Hoge / Backyard Tire Fire - 11/15/06
Often when I go to review a rock show, I have pen and paper at the ready to jot down notes. After all, I'm there to report on the show, so I should be professional and accurate in the information that I am conveying to you...(more)
Asbury Music Awards 2006
Every year the local music community gets together for the Asbury Music Awards, an evening of live local music, and awards representing "the best" of the local music scene. I put "the best" in quotes, because anytime an award is given in out anywhere, it's subjective, just because Crash won an Oscar earlier this year for best picture doesn't mean that the film wasn't ridiculously bad to me.

Message From Lazlo

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to the new!

As prepares to celebrate it's 6th anniversary (with a Folk You! show at the Goldhawk next Wednesday), I thought it was time to give the website a facelift.

Hopefully the new site is easier on the eyes than the old one. More than happy to hear your thoughts, good bad, indifferent, e-mail me at

And don't forget to come out to the FREE ANNIVERSARY SHOW next Wednesday (dec. 6th).

Speaking of shows, thanks to everyone who came out to the Free Concert at Buddie's Tavern last Friday! The place was hopping with lots of people dancing to the incredible live music that Jim Testa, Arlan Feiles & the Lone Howdys, and Thomas Martin & The Martinis.

The next Free Concert at Buddie's Tavern will be on Jan. 20th, 2007. So mark your calendar now!
