Yes, my friends, the time has come to launch Live Fix Radio! And we’re starting this new and unique podcast with a live music memory experiment and celebration focusing on The Arcade Fire, Lady Gaga, Grinderman, LCD Sound System and more bands that rocked live in 2010 and are currently blazing a tour trail in 2011.
Over the last few months we’ve been creating the next evolution of Live Fix and now it’s finally here. Our very first podcast is ready for your listening enjoyment.
This first show was recorded February, and due to a few technical difficulties we weren’t able to post it at the time we originally wanted to, but nonetheless the kick-off episode is a fun and rockin’ ride that’s grown sweeter with time like a fine wine.
So drink up and enjoy this first episode as we look back at 2010 to celebrate our favorite concerts.
We’ll explore the details of these unforgettable shows and discover why fans went crazy over Gaga at Lollapalooza, got primal like Dexter during Grinderman at the Riviera and danced their hearts out with LCD Sound System at Pitchfork and Lissie at Perez Hilton’s One Night Stand in Chicago.
We’ll tell you why these shows won the top spot in our hearts and minds as the best of the 2010, and, in some cases, ended up being some of the best shows we’ve ever been to.
What Can You Expect From The Live Fix Podcast?
For starters, it’s co-hosted by myself and my wife Colleen. You already know my background.
But you might not know that Colleen, in addition to being the Live Fix photographer, is also a licensed clinical professional counselor (LCPC), and a ten-year expert in counseling, psychology and addiction.
Since Colleen’s a trained guru in human behavior, during the podcast we’re looking forward to combining my curiosity of concert fan behavior and her professional expertise to lead us to explore the past, present and future impact of live music on our hearts and minds.
On the way home from shows, Colleen and I always have fascinating chats about why concert fans behave the way we do.
We’ve talked about things like concert fan process addictions and other psychological concepts that are a part of the live music experience. And we’re looking forward to sharing those conversations with you during each podcast.
And in addition to those psychological discoveries, discussions and experiments during each show, you can expect unique interviews with and stories about your favorite bands in rock, pop, dance, rap, and other genres; insights about new emerging artists; and you’ll get to hear stories from other concert fans and key players in the concert industry as we talk with them about how live music has changed their lives, and where the future of live music is headed.
What Else Can You Expect To Discover?
Yes, during each show we’ll dive into the psychological and sociological impact of classic concerts, report on the latest live music news and tell you about our favorite new live albums, DVDs and theatrical concert releases.
