Found Tonight – March For Our Lives

Found Tonight for March for our Lives

Over the last 24 hours, I’ve listened to this song at least 30 times. It is a mashup of 2 of my favorite Broadway songs from the last 5 years, “The Story of Tonight” from Hamilton and “You Will Be Found” from Dear Evan Hansen. It is a collaboration to be a theme song for […]

I had less than an hour of notice before the last songs of Utah’s Rock Alternative played. I’m a music junkie. I’m a fan […]

Meeting Keane, and other brushes with stardom in 2009

If you’ve read my blog for any amount of time, you know that I love going to concerts, symphonies, operas, plays, and musicals. My favorite concert of 2009 was Keane at the Hollywood Palladium (with Mat Kearney as the opener). My “bosom friend” Esther treated me to my ticket for my birthday, and we met […]
