SIMGE On The Scene: Ben Resnick, Scout, and The Mercury Brothers played Happy Mondays

I had another one of those restless nights trying to sleep on Monday, still stoked up from a night at Happy Mondays. Maybe, subliminally, that is why I missed quite a few of them…fear of lack of sleep. NOT. Who [...]

SIMGE On The Scene: Where’s Tino, Wet Brain, Sunshine Spazz and The Burns played Happy Mondays

I want to end the year with a string of Happy Mondays outings, a series which has brought me great joy and loads of excitement. I missed a lot more shows this year than I have in the past four [...]

ShutUp611PShepherd-67

SIMGE On The Scene: Wetbrain, Little Vicious and Shut Up played Happy Mondays

Sometimes it is best to just jump right into the beginning of a week, full steam ahead. Overall, I am about as laid back as they come. Though in all of us there is a certain amount of aggression that [...]

Owel_PShepherd-94

SIMGE On The Scene: Owel, Gatherers and Bent Knee played The Saint

I have been on the prowl to see Owel for a while now. I first caught them at Pinelands Festival a couple of years ago and got hooked on the lull you into a peaceful bliss, crescendo into a massive [...]

Shaking off this years holiday season hiatus, I headed back out to a show at The Saint last Thursday and enveloped myself in a night of psychedelic haze. I figured this would be a great way to return to the [...]

SIMGE On The Scene: Modern Television, Prehistoric Forest and Lou Montesano played Happy Mondays

Happy Thanksgiving! This weeks Happy Mondays was certainly a show to be thankful for, but really, when it comes right down to it, they all are. The constant stream flowing through the town is steady as she goes. It has [...]

SIMGE On The Scene: Matt Wade, Juice & Waiting On Mongo Played Happy Mondays

Nothing warms the cockles like a night of jams and this weeks Happy Mondays served up a heaping portion of them for us. We had another great crowd as well, with the customary jam band dances forming where ever there [...]

WickedHollow811_PShepherd-27

SIMGE On The Scene: Wicked Hollow, Deaf Rhino & Olivia Bec Played The Saint

SIMGE On The Scene: Modern Crowds, New Politicians, Mercury Brothers & The Gray Played The Saint

Took a trip over to The Saint the other night to get in some new music and an album release party. It was another sold out show with predominantly friends and families in attendance, which was beat for the closing [...]
