The first time I saw Cheap Trick, I had a classic case of mixed feelings. On the one hand there was the actual performance. The band was opening for Stone Temple Pilots at the North Charleston...

Far too often, when I hear the synopsis of a Broadway musical, I'm underwhelmed. Then I go and see said musical, and it turns out to be great. Take Wicked for example. I'd heard it was good, but a...

  There are some venues in the Lowcountry that I truly love when it comes to seeing live music. At the top of my list sits the North Charleston Performing Arts Center. Since it opened as the...

I've found that when it come to some bands there are no fair weather fans. You're either on board or you can't stand them. Such is the case with Steely Dan. From 1972 to 1980, Walter Becker and...

I have two sons, ages three and six. Since the day I found out I would be a father, there are certain scenarios I've played out in my mind. Some are situations every parent probably daydreams about:...
