Short month, long winter

February is the shortest month and yet it can easily feel like the longest, with the early-setting sun and bitter cold standing between me and spring – and my birthday, on March 1st. (Start planning now!)

At least this February, I have the sweet face of Harry Styles looking over my shoulder as I type, as his 21st birthday (can I buy you a drink, handsome?!) on February 2 makes him my calendar boy of the month.

Yes, my possibly inappropriate 1D fangirl obsession continues, but I was able to make it work with a recent story posted on AXS.com, when respected indie troubadour Martin Sexton covered a 1D song for his daughter, after she found out that Harry was following him on Twitter.

Other recent stories for that site include:

Courtney Barnett’s new single/video and upcoming album. Very excited for this as I loved her album and the show I caught last year, at the Black Cat. She was also very gracious afterwards, meeting fans and signing albums. Here I am with the cool lady. IMG_3992

Sufjan Stevens’ new album and upcoming tour.

Rapper/singer Lizzo gets coveted spot opening for Sleater-Kinney’s tour.

I’ve had a few other items posted recently, so here are some other links for your pleasure:

Jukebox the Ghost and Twin Forks giving away free music and touring together.

A review of The Black Cadillacs, and Knox Hamilton (a new favorite band) at Jammin Java.

A review of (charming Southern boy) Christian Lopez, also at Jammin Java.

To recap, here are places you can find me and links to a whole lotta love:

Thanks for dropping by and please come back soon. It won’t all be listicles (a horrible trend in journalism, with an ugly word to match!).

So Many Set Lists, So Little Time!

It’s been a hectic time here at CPF HQ – three concerts in 9 days – and, since all of them involved taking pics and getting set lists, I’ve been busy putting together pages for WhatchaGonnaPlay.com. Here are the new ones:

ImageAndrew Belle at Jammin Java  (The show also featured Trent Dabbs and Young Summer. I wrote a review of that one, too.

ImageBombadil at Sixth & I Synagogue   (review coming soon)

ImageFrank Turner at Fillmore Silver Spring  (there’s a review to come on this, as well – told you I’m busy!) His opening act, Ben Marwood, is on WGP, too)Image

Please take a look to see/hear more about these artists, all of whom I can heartily recommend. And come back soon!
