Tonight's closing shift was brought to you buy Meshuggah.

Thank you, Lordi for helping me get through another closing shift.

Today marks the passing of a great musician. Ray Manzerek, keyboardist and founding member of The Doors died due to complications from cancer. I started listening to The Doors when I was in middle school and have been a huge fan ever since. So today I will share my favorite Doors song that showcases Ray's talent.

This song is from the band that did the bluegrass cover of Gin & Juice several years ago. I was fortunate enough to see them live at a small local venue a few years ago and had a blast. If you ever get a chance, I highly recommend seeing them live.

When I was in elementary school, my sister bought two CDs. One was Dookie by Greenday and the other was Weezer's Blue album. Both of these albums made a huge impact on my taste in music. Greenday was my first introduction to punk rock (yeah yeah, they are pop punk, but you gotta start somewhere). Weezer's blue album on the other hand spoke to me in a way very little music had before. I wonder if this is because I was just starting to notice music at the time. Anyway, my favorite song off of the album is Only in Dreams. I love the slow build, and how after the song climaxes, the instruments start to drop out in the reverse order of how they came in, leaving you with just the bass line.

Today is Mother's Day, the day when we tell our mothers just how much we appreciate all they have done to help us turn into the well adjusted people we are today.

I am in love with Lucia Turino. For those of you who don't know who she is (which is most people) she is the bass player for Devil Makes Three.

Plus, she plays an upright. I saw Devil Makes Three last Friday night at the Cambridge Room at the House of Blues, and it was an amazing show. I managed to be in the front for the entire show and had a blast. If you ever have the opportunity to see them live, I highly recommend it.

I am going to an Alkaline Trio concert tonight for the first time ever. I started listening to them several years ago, but every time they played nearby, something kept me from going to a show. I am pretty damn excited, and I hope they play "Hell Yes." Maybe they'll even play "Moving Right Along."
