Where I’ve Been, What I’ve Seen, What I’ve Written

Hey there, CPF people. I’m not sure how many of y’all (as we say in Virginia) follow the articles I write for examiner.com or the postings I make to the Set List Site, WhatchaGonnaPlay, where I share concert photos and actual set lists from shows I’ve seen. (I would love to hear if you do via the comments section or direct email.)

Being busy elsewhere often keeps me from this here blog and I don’t want to be repetitive. But since I can’t assume that you know what I’ve been up to,  I thought I’d do a little catch-up summary here to remind you where else you can find my work…

Over at examiner.com, I write two columns. One is for reviews and previews of DC area concerts. Since my last posting here, the following have run:

Glenn Tilbrook at Jammin Java

Sept. 20 weekend preview – Travis, Virgin FreeFest, Laura Veirs, The Selecter

BOY at the 9:30 Club


Atlas Genius at Fillmore Silver Spring


I also have a Digital Music column, where I write about free, legal downloads and review albums and, as in the case of the One Direction movie (which I thoroughly enjoyed. So there!), other music-related stuff:

Freebies from Matt Pond, Army of Me, Wolfcolony,  samplers from the Mountain Oasis EDM fest, and the ATO label

“One Direction: This Is Us” movie review

And then, as I mentioned, there’s Whatcha Gonna Play, the set list site. I’ve been very lucky lately in that I’ve gotten lists from every show l’ve been to in the past month, and I’d love for you to check ’em out:

Glen Tillbrook


Atlas Genius, with Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. (below) opening


And here’s a link you won’t find anywhere else yet. While I’m still working on the examiner.com review of this show, you can see the set list and pics from Wednesday night’s 9:30 Club appearance by Noah and the Whale.


I hope this collection of links offers you something new to see or at least explains my absence from CPF. I’ll try to be better about staying in touch.

Hope you’re well!

Jammin Java Mid-Atlantic Band Battle – a view from the judges table

Arteless won the night with a funky set.

Arteless won the night with a funky set.

I was asked again to judge at Jammin Java’s Mid-Atlantic Band Battle on Tuesday night, which is always a good time and great chance to catch up with local music. Spent this morning finishing an article and photo gallery about it for my DC Concert Photography column at examiner.com. And then the damn Content Management System went all crazy, wiped out the article (luckily, I still have the first draft) and refused to properly publish the slideshow, so it will not be appearing in search engines. (On the downside of being a freelancer, I have no in-house IT department.)

But for you stalwart souls who visit this site, you can view the slideshow here.

I’ll be back at the judges table tonight and will attempt another article/gallery tomorrow, so please check back in.
