The Cherry Blossoms are in full bloom right now in Washington, DC.
I've always heard that the cherry trees around the Tidal Basin were pretty spectacular this time of year and not something you would want to miss. Peek bloom was April 10th and having just moved out here last Summer, I've never had the opportunity to check them out. To remedy that unfortunate situation my wife and I decided to head over before dawn to see if the rumors were true.
Passafire are currently cruising up and down the East Coast promoting their new album "Vines". It's been a few years since I last saw these guys, but when I got the notice that they were playing the State Theater just down the street from my new home in Falls Church, VA I couldn't pass it up. They played a fantastic show and I highly recommend checking them out. Vines Spring Tour
The first time I saw Turbonegro was in December 2004 at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco. One of my friends was working with a crew hired to film the show and they needed an extra camera guy. I had no idea who Turbonegro was or what I was getting myself into... Let's just say it was an experience I will never forget... If you ever have the opportunity to see these guys play live, go! I don't care what else you have going on, or if you've never even heard one of their songs. Just go! You will not be disappointed.
Around Mid-April my friend Rachid called me up to discuss a few issues that he was encountering with his website.
When Rachid first contracted me to build his website in 2010 his main focus was to create an ecommerce website where the general public could browse his portfolio and custom order any image in a variety of size and framing options. In that aspect the website was a success.
The Expendables played another sold out show at the House of Blues - Sunset Strip on Saturday night. Good times all around.
