Saturday Night Concert: The Stray Cats

~ Those First Concert Blues ~

The Stray Cats were my first concert, and it was in 1983. But it was in Williamsburg, VA at W&M, and not in Germany.


Once upon a time, MTV had a live concert every Saturday night. Not a recording of a show, but an actual live concert. I can’t give you a live concert every Saturday, but I can give you some excellent live concert videos of some fantastic shows, and we can all pretend its sort of the 80s all over again.

Saturday Night Concert: Type O Negative

~ I mean, c’mon – it’s Halloween ~

Who else should you be playing on Halloween, other than the guys whose lead singer thinks he’s a legit vampire? The over-the-top theatrics, the nutty lyrical themes, the Neil Young cover, and the hair… oh gawd, the hair. Seriously, these guys are auditioning to be the house band at the Clan Brujah family reunion, and if that ain’t a Halloween vibe, then nothing is.

Saturday Night Concert: Duran Duran

~ At the height of the powers ~

It’s hard to describe just how —BIG— Duran Duran were from 81-85. They took some time off for some side projects and never really reassembled with the same oomph. One thing that was always under-rated was the fact that these guys could play. They really were much better musicians than anyone wanted to give them credit for.
