I am Time magazine's person of the year!
Wow, what a week! First celebrates it's 6th anniversary, and now Time Magazine names me Person of the Year! Ok, so that's not exactly true, they named all of us who, "control the Information Age", through the use of the World Wide Web. ...(more)
Alex Brumel: "the next big thing" from NJ? For me there is nothing like that feeling of witnessing a stellar performance by a rising star, and just feeling lucky to have seen the performance in a small venue before the artist breaks into the big time. Living in NJ, where there seems to be something in the water that makes good musicians, this feeling happens pretty regularly. Unfortunately, most of the rising stars I see end up toiling around the NJ music scene, playing stellar performances night after the night for small audiences, and never getting noticed, or worse, getting noticed by a major label, and then getting screwed by the label...(more)
Review: Will Hoge / Backyard Tire Fire - 11/15/06
Often when I go to review a rock show, I have pen and paper at the ready to jot down notes. After all, I'm there to report on the show, so I should be professional and accurate in the information that I am conveying to you...(more)

Message From Lazlo

Hi Everyone,

2006 is coming to a close, but 2007 is just a round the corner and is ready for another year of supporting the local music scene by playing the best music from NJ, and with the continuation of both Folk You! and Free Concert Series!

This week on Lazlo's Den, I'll be recapping the best (& worst) things of 2006. Tonight I'll be remembering just a few of the great shows I witnessed this year.

And New Year's Eve on Lazlo's Den, I'll be doing my first ever top 10 albums of the year. After years of not wanting to do this, I have finally caved into the pressure of my peers, and I'm currently compiling my 10 favorite albums of the year (which will include more than just NJ artists), and will play them back on New Year's eve. The top 10 list, including some runners up, will also be posted on my blog.

2006 has been a great year for local music. Let's make 2007 even better!

Happy New Year Everyone!
