Every year we hear no one listens to albums anymore.
Tuesday, December 3 in Templin Hall at 7:00 on the Hampton campus of Thomas Nelson Community College, Wayla J. Chambo and Michael Durig will present a delightful concert of flute and guitar.
Eric Worden began jockeying discs in Hampton Roads 1993. That same year Nirvana released In Utero, Snow released “Informer,” and Meatloaf released “I’d Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That).”
Niagara Falls showcases Phish twenty-four days before performing what Rolling Stone called “one of the greatest concerts of the 90s” at Madison Square Garden on New Year’s Eve. What is so remarkable about this performance (just released as a three-disc set) on the Canadian border is how willing the band is to take risks.
To my ear the Spring Standards hold the trophy for Best Show Ever at the Hampton Taphouse, but even a slapdash peep at the bands that have performed in the 100-head venue makes such an award an exercise in extreme futility.
Since releasing The Constant in 2011, Zach and Megan Moats have been the hardest working musicians in Coastal Virginia.
