Milton Nascimento e Banda Live at the Barbican

Milton Nascimento e Banda Live at the Barbican

2013 has been one of celebration for Milton Nascimento. Besides celebrating his 71st birthday on 26 October, Milton has been commemorating his 50-year career as a musician that began with the EP Barulho de Trem recorded in Belo Horizonte in 1963. If the London installment of Milton’s tour 50 Anos de Carreira—Uma Travessia [50-Year Career—A Traverse] is any indication of his vibrancy, then I expect to see many more commemorations to come.

Heavy metal was alive and well at BB King’s night club in the heart of New York’s Times Square on Friday night, where veterans rockers Saxon, put on an explosive show. Back in the ‘80s, when the New Wave of British Heavy Metal was a musical force not to be reckoned with; you would be taking your life in your hands walking down 42nd Street, as it was lined with head shops, porn theaters, and drug dealers.

The Postal Service Plays (2nd to) Last Show Ever at Lollapalooza 2013

At Lollapalooza 2013, the Postal Service played their second to last show ever, with the last being a Lollapalooza after party the next day. You’d think this would make everybody sad, to be losing such an iconic band, but we really lost the Postal Service years ago. The recent tour, culminating in these two nights at Lollapalooza 2013, has just been a bonus that no one expected.
