Show #35: Just A Couple Of Bros

The show started out with Simon and Garfunkel, which really got me thinking about bromances in music. Soon enough, a rockin’ playlist ensued. I’m sorry, I had to skip Hall and Oats, but just remember that radtacular mustache and you’ll be good.

Show #8: The Best of 2012

A new year … and a new show to grace your ears…

That’s right earth, it’s officially 2013, so it’s time to rock with the special two-hour show from last week where I recapped all the awesomeness of 2012. I know I’m a little late posting this bad boy, but I’m also a little lazy. Hey, at least I’m honest. 

In being a new year, I thought it was time to reassess the format of this blog. That’s right, all of the show links will be posted separately from blog posts for four reasons. 1: If you’re lazy, you can simply click the link without having to read stuff. 2: If you can’t read, you don’t have to worry about the shame of not comprehending long blog posts and failing at reading stuff. 3: I am attempting to make the blog stand on it’s own beyond just going in conjunction with the radio show, so you can then read more stuff if you so desire. 4: I can’t remember what else, but I think I was going to say “read stuff” again.

So then the grand idea is to have blog posts throughout the week with music related greatness, but every Wednesday, count on the show being posted in all its rocking glory. If I need to elaborate on the show with a separate blog post, get ready for that bad mother to drop like a bomb on Thursdays. That way, it’s quicker and easier to jam to the TRR radio hour, and therefore leading you on your way to being the coolest kid on the block.

Review Throwback: Alex Goes To A Musical

As I said last week, I’ve been writing album and show reviews here and there for my pals over at the music blog Little By Listen. I figured since this is, you know, a music blog, I’d do a little review throwback and post them on The Rock Renaissance as well. The last one I did was an album review, so now it’s time for a show review. Only this show was a little different. This, my friends, was a musical.

Denver, CO

I figured one day I would have to do it. I mean, every guy has a manly duty to accompany his special lady on a lovely date consisting of something lame like a chick flick, a spinning class, or a play. I’ve dragged the misses to decidedly un-lame concerts like Yeasayer (they drop beats like a hip-hop band) and My Morning Jacket (of course they won’t play for three hours). I figured it was time to payback the favor and attend a musical.
