During my nine odd years writing for this publication I have (or rather, I believe I have) forged a strong sense of "localness" in which I pride myself. I firmly believe in a "our backyard first, the nation second" attitude toward musical coverage. But every now and again, certain concerts come to town that I either really want to attend or need to attend because I am in desperate need of cash to cover my car payments. The call was sent out for someone to review the Stevie Nicks and Rod Stewart concert. Rod is a huge soccer fan and I happen to be something in the vicinity of an authoritative voice when it comes to the footie. And so, I responded, and though another writer got in there first, I ended up going at the show last minute.
