Adam Black’s new 8802TE electro-acoustic guitar review

Adam Black have created an affordable electro-acoustic guitar that may be perfect if you’re starting out, on the road or small-time gigging. When you first pull Adam Black’s new electro-acoustic guitar out of the happily included guitar case that comes with it, the fine grain wooden finish resembles a beautiful, rustic guitar that wouldn’t look out of place on the shoulders of a nomadic folk singer.

'Ashes to Ashes' Is the Second Half of Chris O’Leary’s Deep Dive into all Things Bowie

For those who have ever wondered if a blog can become a book, Chris O'Leary would respond with a hearty yes: his blog, Pushing Ahead of the Dame yielded two books. The current edition, Ashes to Ashes, begins in 1976, as David Bowie and Iggy Pop are planning to escape the dregs of life in Los Angeles and set up shop in Berlin. O'Leary adds a quick note to bring the reader up to date, had they missed his first volume, Rebel Rebel (Zero Books, 2015) covering Bowie's creative work from 1964 to 1976....

Action Bronson Cooks with the Ultimate Herb in 'Stoned Beyond Belief'

As far as 21st century renaissance men in our time of bro culture go, it might be harder to find one more entertaining – or unabashedly authentic – than Queens native Action Bronson.

Gaby Moreno Sings Immigrant's Songs at Lincoln Center

Like pretty much every artist I have seen perform at the Appel Room, Gaby Moreno expressed her awe of the Lincoln Center venue's view. I had seen the view before, but I hadn't seen a full set from Moreno. And I feel lucky I got to see her American Songbook show on February 27th as it brought a warm breath of Latin America and the southwest to an otherwise cold evening. The Guatemalan immigrant performed a rousing set of original songs, both old and unreleased, as well as covers with accompanim...
