Push Stars

Sherm, Beth, and I drove from Rochester, NY to New Paltz, NY on May 9th, 1997 so that we could see the Push Stars for the second time and pick up their new EP before I left for California. They played two full sets at McGillicuddy's that night and basically rocked the place!

Spirit of the West!

Sherm dragged me to see two bands who I had never seen or heard of before on Friday, March 21, 1997. We went and saw the Push Stars open up for Spirit of the West at a really cool club in Buffalo, NY. Once I heard a few of the Push Stars' songs, I immediately decided to buy their CD. They were great! With Spirit of the West, on the other hand, I was a little weary about their music because of how Sherm described them (although enthsiastically). However, even though they fit his description perfectly, they were awesome! Once the first song was over, I leaned over to him and told him I liked them. They have one guy who plays an accordian, one guy who plays flutes or an acoustic guitar, and of course the rest of any regular band (bass, guitar, drums). Most of their songs are hilarious drinking songs with an interesting irish/scottish/whatever sound, but that's only half of them. That was definitely a fun concert; check 'em out!

The eight time that I saw Jewel was on Saturday, March 15th, 1997 at the Palace Theater in Columbus, OH. This was an EveryDay Angels event as there were a group of us (Lauren, Tim, Shelley, Liz, Mia, Nate, Michelle, and I) who met before the show. Some of us had EDA posters and even got to meet and talk to/hang out with the Rugburns. The show was wonderful and Jewel put on another exhasperating two hours performance with even more new songs.

The seventh time I saw Jewel was on Monday, February 24th, 1997 at SUNY Geneseo in Geneseo, NY (near Rochester). This was the first time that The Rugburns opened up for her and put on a spectacularly fun act. This was the first time I had seen them live and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Jewel played almost a full two hours and was quite mezmerizing as usual.
