The Drums are off to a great start in 2012.  They recently completed an overseas tour (literally about 1 day ago) and will be performing on the Jimmy Fallon show tonight.  Rather than take the night off, the band performed a last minute secret show at W.I.P. (Work In Progress) in New York.  The Drums, featuring yet again another line up change (Jacob Graham and Jonny Pierce are the only two ‘original’ members left), performed a brief set in the wee hours of the morning on Valentines Day, 2012.  The 4 song set featured “Best Friend,” “Me and The Moon” and “Money.”  Jonny Pierce’s stage presence is reminiscent of the good old days of Morrissey (sans the entire front row trying to grab little bits of him).  If you haven’t checked out The Drums’ second album “Portamento,” do it!

Reeve Carney of Carney

When I met Reeve Carney, the star of Spider-Man Turn Off The Dark on Broadway, earlier this year, I was very impressed with how nice he was.  I did some research to find out more about him and I discovered Reeve is in a band called Carney.  I decided that I’d see the band the next chance I got.  That night turned out to be Valentine’s Day, 2011.  Carney played a sold out show at New York’s Bowery Ballroom.  Due to overwhelming popularity, the band had to switch venues to accommodate ticket sales.  Carney’s music reminds me a bit of Jeff Buckley as many songs feature epic screaming and climactic guitar solos.  Oh and watching Reeve Carney with his chiseled body and super good looks added to a great night.



The band played songs off their debut album “Mr. Green Volume 1,” some new songs that were promised to be on album number 2.  We were also treated to covers of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” (minus the operatic middle section) as well as The Beatles’ “I Want You (She’s So Heavy).”  Many of the songs played during the 2 hour set were long and featured a jamming section before returning to the theme of the song.  The band did their job as rock stars and I bought the CD at the merch table before the night was over.  After the show, the band had an impromptu meet and greet with fans and once again, Reeve Carney was a totally cool guy.

It’s uncertain when the Los Angeles based band will be playing another show, as the band played during Spider-Man’s night off.  I do know this, I’ll be back whenever it is.  Thanks again to Carney for putting on such a great show and Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine's Day!

To all the lovers out there, According2g would like to wish you a very happy Valentine’s Day!

The above photo was taken at the Keszler Gallery in New York City and I think these are the best candy hearts of all time.

If you are on a Blackberry, I-phone, or if your eye-sight is really bad, here’s what these hearts say, but they will be revealed after the jump because the language used is definitely NSFCMP (not safe for closed-minded people):
