Holy rock and roll!  In 2009, Metallica and Lou Reed performed together for the 25th anniversary of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.  For those wondering, they performed “White Light, White Heat” and “Sweet Jane.”  The rockers have just announced they were inspired by this performance enough to record a full album together.  As of press time, there is no word what it will contain or when the release date is, but Metallica have confirmed the sessions are finished and a full album has been recorded!  Wow!

Lenny Kravitz Live at the Fillmore, New York on October 18, 2009

To celebrate his 20 year career, Lenny Kravitz played 5 sold out shows at New York’s Irving Plaza, also known as The Fillmore East.  Tonight’s show on October 18, 2009 was meant to be his 5th and final show, but he blew out his voice the other night, so he rescheduled the show that was supposed to take place on Friday night.

Always on the Run

Always on the Run

There was so much love in the room at this tiny venue and Lenny returned the love playing extended jams of every song to showcase both his amazing musicianship as well as that of his tight band.  In addition to playing some mean guitar, he also played the keyboards and the drums.  He focused primarily on playing his biggest hit singles, but he ommitted so many great songs from his set list.  I met some cool people at the show and when we discussed our “wish list,” he did not take any chances by playing obscure songs.  Nevertheless, playing for two solid hours, we hardly walked away feeling disappointed.

Lenny’s daughter, actress Zoe Kravitz, sat on a stack of speakers at the side of the stage, cheering her father on.  It was very cute.  Lenny played hits such as “Let Love Rule,” “Mr. Cabdriver,” “Always on the Run,” “American Woman,” “Fly Away,” and “Let Love Rule.”

Gary Go live at the United Palace Theater - October 16, 2009

On October 16, 2009, British singer Gary Go opened for Mika at the United Palace Theater in New York.  You might know him from supporting acts such as Lady Gaga or Take That’s most recent tour of the UK, but if you don’t, his music is pretty mellow, along the same vibes as Keane or The Script.  If you don’t know those bands, well I can’t help ya.  Here’s a fun fact about Gary Go:  He wrote most of the lyrics for the song “the Heart Balloon,” by asking his Twitter followers to submit a line for the song.
