SIMGE On The Scene: MACK, Pioneer the Eel and Levy & The Oaks played Happy Mondays

Just what the doctor ordered for this episode of Happy Mondays, a perfect calm before the rager that is to go down next week. A little smooth, feel good music to start the week was a great elixir for me [...]

SIMGE On The Scene: Chris Brown, Smalltalk & Everymen Played Happy Mondays

Everymen stopped by to headline Happy Mondays this week in support of their new release “May Ashes Have Stories to Tell”. Coming up from Florida for a tour of the northeast, the five-piece act adds a punk attitude into some [...]

SIMGE On The Scene: Little Vicious, Yawn Mower & Gay Guy/Straight Guy Welcomed Back Happy Mondays

Happy Mondays has returned! For me, this is the one event I will attend without looking to see who is playing. Unless we get a request, I am going to shows that have piqued my interest, but for the past [...]

SIMGE On The Scene: Robert Randolph and The Family Band & Matt O’Ree Played The Stone Pony

Traveling up the parkway Fryday night on my way to a blues shred fest I feared I would be a little late to the proceedings. When I walked into the Stone Pony the barricade they had set up was already [...]

SIMGE On The Scene: Samantha Louise, Girl, The LeMats and The Jolly Daggers Played The Saint

My musical 2016 concluded with some Tuesday Tunes at The Saint. Seems this year was a blink of an eye, and one wonders where does the time go too. Turning the corner, the map for January looks very strange without [...]

SIMGE On The Scene: Ron Santee, Shady Street Show Band & Levy and the Oaks Played Happy Mondays

The final Happy Mondays of the year, and possibly the series, concluded this week with a huge party. The event was bittersweet for me as I began this journey of mine almost three years ago with this weekly gathering. I [...]

SIMGE On The Scene: The Wag, Underlined Passages, & Flammable Animals Played Happy Mondays

This week’s Happy Mondays began with a really nice, indie folk act. The Wag, a quartet from Middletown, has some killer harmonies going and they performed with the perfect use of sparseness. Electric Bass, Acoustic Guitar, Bongos and various percussive [...]

SIMGE On The Scene: Sister Ancestor, Lunch Ladies, & Gravity Well Played Happy Mondays

The final month of Happy Mondays kicked off this week in, I am going to have to say, surprising fashion. There was something in the atmosphere this night that transcended all good feelings even with the Jets stinking up the [...]

Deal Casino Release 3 Song EP, Human Cannonball // Watch The Video For Title Track

One of my favorite things that comes out of being a scene surveyor is to see music mature from its infancy to its production. Of course to track this you must take in a set from the band periodically both [...]
