Review: la onda!!!!!

drdave, Chicago 12/17/07
artist: Aimee Mann's Chrismas Show at the Vic
Review: Agreed that this "variety" show was just another excuse to not play music. The movie was dumb, Paul Tomkins "I can't believe how stoned I get on pot" was at least 30 years too late to be funny, and the fantastically talented Nellie McKay was hardly there at all. I thought the Hanukkah Fairy act by Morgan Murphy was the only genuinely funny bit in the concert, and she did it in her best Larraine Newman stoned out style, but it wasn't enough to sustain a concert with too little music and no momentum. Very disappointing, especially considering the talent of the people on stage.

Joe, Madison, WI 12/17/07

artist: Cloud Cult/ 1900's
Review: Beautiful show. Cloud Cult was as good as expected but 1900's was the unknown surprise. Awesome harmonies that reminded one of a modern Mamma's & Pappa's. Picked up the CD at the show and love it more with each spin.

Saii, coral springs, fl 12/12/07
artist: All
Review: I loved the first one. I haven't read the second one yet but I know I will love it. I love poetry regardless who wrote it as long as it's good. That is my opinion. Also i think that it shouldn't matter what artist wrote i just if it's good or not. In the first one there were good poems from bands I wasn't too fond of. SO say give it a shot don't be a poser just because you may not like the genre doesn't mean you won't like the poetry.

lisa, las vegas 12/12/07
