Jimmy Eat World

For three years of my life, I worked as a bartender at my father’s bar on the weekends to make some extra cash. While much of that experience was highly enjoyable, not everything was sunshine and lollipops. For example, during that timeframe I can conservatively say that I heard roughly six million renditions of “Sweetness,” “The Middle” and countless other tracks from the Jimmy Eat World catalog. After covering their performance at DC101’s Kerfuffle 2017, I am relieved to report they are […]

Weezer

Sat It Ain’t So. Island in the Sun. Buddy Holly. Beverly Hills. Hash Pipe. Undone – The Sweater Song. The list goes on and on. For more than 20 years, Weezer has delivered. When I saw that they were among the performers at DC101’s Kerfuffle this year, I knew I had to be there. When I found out I was going to be credentialed to cover the show on behalf of D.C. Music Download, I was beyond ecstatic. And anyone […]

OK Go

A decade ago, a Chicago-based quartet burst onto the scene with an iconic music video featuring synchronized dancing on treadmills. That critically-acclaimed video solidified their place in the indie rock scene, earned them a Grammy and garnered more than 34 million views. Not bad for a first-time effort. Over the next decade, while the rest of the music world gave up on music videos (Thanks MTV), OK Go continued to crank out innovative visuals to accompany their catchy tunes. What started […]

Redskins playoff hopes stranded in the desert

The Washington Redskins traveled to Arizona hoping to bounce back from a humbling loss to their divisional rivals, the Dallas Cowboys, on Thanksgiving day. With a week and a half to prepare for a disappointing but still dangerous Cardinals squad, the Redskins needed a strong showing to solidify their standing in the NFC playoff race. Instead, the offense came out flat in the first half and the defense never really showed up at all — enabling the Cardinals to a […]

My one-on-one interview with Kirk Cousins

Life is good for Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins. Not only has he solidified himself as a legitimate franchise quarterback, ensuring a handsome payday isn’t too far down the road, but today he was also named the NFC Offensive Player of the Month for November. In three games in the month of November, Cousins completed 84 of 116 passes (72.4 percent) for 1,086 yards with eight touchdowns and no interceptions for a passer rating of 124.4. His 362.0 passing yards […]

Dallas duo feasts on Redskins for Thanksgiving

When the NFL schedule comes out each year, the first game I track down is when the Washington Redskins travel to Dallas to face the Cowboys. In addition to being a rivalry game, this annual match-up always appeal to me because of the two and a half years I was stationed at Fort Hood, Texas. In related news, I’ve covered nine of the last 10 times the Redskins played in Dallas — missing only the 2013 trip. For the second […]

Rob Kelley and friends run all over Packers

The Washington Redskins’ 2015 season ended abruptly when a supposedly vulnerable Green Bay Packers team came to town for a first-round matchup and steamrolled the burgundy and gold in stunning fashion, 35-18. Even though the Packers once again arrived in town looking less than stellar, most ‘Skins fans were still very much aware of what happened this past January. Add in the fact that the Redskins had lost 20 of their last 25 appearances, including their last seven at FedEx […]
