Goran Bregovic and his Wedding and Funeral Orchestra

Not too long ago I got the chance to see Goran Bregovic and His Wedding and Funeral Orchestra play at the Sony Centre For the Performing Arts. It was my first time in said theatre and it was lovely and I would like to go back. Goran was not at all what I expected. I expected … Continue reading

A very cute duo and the singer was decked out in an interesting dress reminiscent of Wednesday Addams. … Continue reading

First Heavy TO was a great success

Much to the dislike of all the “haters” out there as some signs I saw, I thought that ALL of the bands at Heavy TO this year were perfect for the line up. Yes, that means Billy Talent as well. After a day and a half of too much sun, not enough sun screen, too … Continue reading
