Multimedia Review: The House Jacks, 7/10/09

This past Friday’s House Jacks concert in Cambridge, MA was part of a 3-date east coast tour, a little tour-lette not uncommon for the House Jacks these days.

Recording Review: The Orphan Sporks’ “A Little Bite of Everything”

Recording Review: SoCal VoCals – Unanimous

The SoCal VoCals changed my perspective on a cappella.  I spent years being very anti-choreography.  Then I saw the, now famous, near-perfect set at ICCA on YouTube and I was blown away. Their vocals were amazing, the movements complemented the songs well; it was no wonder that they won the ICCA Championship.  When I saw that they put out a new album I had to check it out.  Would it hold up the standard I had already set for them in my head?
