Day 254: Don’t Let The Devil by Jackie Greene

24 Feb

Hey everyone!

For today’s post, I wanted to get some blues out there (to essentially contribute to the stormy weather).

A few weeks back, me and Michael, a friend of mine, went to see Jackie Greene at WOW Hall. I had zero expectations, so I was thoroughly surprised at how great the concert was! With the bluesy-rock feel and the Hendrix-style guitar solos, I became an instant fan.

I loved how Jackie Greene used all different guitars and instruments to explore the genre he was rocking, actively getting the audience to feel the music like he does. With two acts, a fantastic arrangement of guitars, a 70s electric organ (can you say LOVE?!), and a great voice, he embodied the soul of the 70s. Impressive for such a young artist!

Anyway I had a great time at the concert (thanks Mike!) and I’m proud to say that I’m a Jackie Greene fan from now on!

Here’s an acoustic version of “Don’t Let The Devil” (which was one of my favorite songs he played). It’s really awesome and I’m glad to see this guy still rocks hard acousticly as well as full-band-ly.

Enjoy “Don’t Let The Devil” by Jackie Greene!

Day 228: It’s time for some more super rad AQUABATS!

28 Jan

Hello there!

As I am writing this post, I’m listening to the AQUABATS! HOORAY!

It’s always an epic day when the Aquabats are on!

So for the post today, I wanted to feature another one of their songs! But the question is, which one?!

I am going to feature not 1

not 2,

but 3 songs… all from their album Charge!! (2005)! OHHH YEAAAH

(this blogpost is just stalling. I guess I’ll have a more in depth post later this week… maybe Sunday).

Song #1: Plastic Lips

The song is about a guy who falls in love with a doll. Yeah. That’s right. You heard me.

Weirdly enough, it’s like my favorite song off of the whole CD… so just give it a listen!

Song #2: Look At Me (I’m A Winner)

I mean, just by the title you know this song rocks. It’s one of my favorite get-me-out-of-a-bad-mood songs because of it’s uplifting theme!

Song #3: Waterslides

Waterslides is also one of my favorite songs because it’s actually got a really great message: Live life to the fullest and enjoy life! Plus, anything that is TECHNICALLY about Waterslides is bad-ass!

Enjoy those songs and more on the Aquabats album Charge!!
