Luckey’s Local Showcase

The music season is once again upon us. Tonight’s show at Luckey’s Club was pretty damn good. The line-up was awesome; Maci DeBlanc,  Breakfast Boys Leisure League, and Connor and My Friends.

Zeta in Eugene

Last Friday at the Hi-Fi was absolutely fabulous. We were entertained by three heavy-hitting local bands and a band from Venezuela, Zeta. This band was so good, I am still trying to come to grips with it. Spiller, Childspeak, and The Critical Shakes are so damn good on their own. Adding this band to the… Read More »
