2009 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductions: #TBT

My first career at cleveland.com was an amazing five+ years. It was filled with learning how to code a website and be an online journalist (sure, college sort of taught me that), being on The Dawg Blog Live (see also embarrassing), foraying myself into the professional social media space and most memorably, covering amazing events […]

YOLO: Summer vs. Blogging

If you were about to create a hashtag, website and all-out social media frenzy because I have been MIA, rest assured. I’m alive and well. Very well, actually. I’ve neglected the blog, fallen behind on all things Internet, barely tweeted and been a Facebook recluse (as much as my job allows me to be at […]

A mid-week weekend

As if I didn’t have enough fun on Saturday, I decided to keep the good times rolling Tuesday night at The Black Keys concert. Well, me and every other Clevelander! I met up with my dates for the night at Harry Buffalo for $1 beers, free shots from the throwback to the 80s shot girls […]

Elton John at Blossom

I couldn’t think of a better way to say goodbye to the summer than attending a legendary concert at Blossom Music Center. Sir Elton John proved song after song after song as to why he is a Rock and Roll Hall of Famer.

The superstar played his tried and true songs like The Bitch is […]

Ray LaMontagne and the Pariah Dogs

Two years ago I was faced with a quite the predicament. I’m talking life-altering dilemma. It was April 2009 and I was continually asking myself, ‘Do we go to Fleetwood Mac at the Q or Ray LaMontagne at the State Theatre?’ After much deliberation and discussion, I ultimately pulled the trigger and chose Fleetwood Mac.

Lady Gaga’s Monster Ball Tour

It’s official. I am a little monster.

Wednesday night I attended my first Lady Gaga concert and left Quicken Loans Arena with an ear-to-ear smile. Although Gaga was late to her own party (she didn’t go on until nearly 10:45 p.m.), her energy was contagious and the sold-out crowd was singing and dancing […]
