Voodoo Glow Skulls

The fountain of youth burst open May 6 at the Bunkhouse Saloon when the Voodoo Glow Skulls took the stage. After a very aggressive, pleasantly violent start full of moshing and all-in-good-fun heavy pushing, the rowdy crowd was given a break to skank (ska dance style) with “Left for Dead.” As the show carried on, I felt not a day past 15. The fountain’s waters were rejuvenating. Classics such as “Charlie Brown,” “El Coo Cooi,” and “Love Letter” made the set list a fan-pleaser. Closing out the performance, they played with the same ferocity and intensity as the first time I saw them more than 10 years ago. Obviously, these guys bathe in the fountain of youth frequently. After singing my heart out to the final song, “Fat Randy,” I left feeling new, euphoric and a little wet.

Martin Sexton

By Deanna Rilling

Translating his music to the stage with the right amount of liberty from album versions, Martin Sexton’s April 28 solo show at the Hard Rock Café was a great night for those who appreciate a finely crafted tune. Unfortunately, those music appreciators only numbered about 50 people. (Just to give a little perspective, the Syracuse, N.Y.-based singer has sold out three upcoming shows in New York City). On the bright side, the intimate setting allowed for pleasant bantering and a full view of the singer/songwriter’s unabashed emotion.
