Jamaica Trip: Solo Shows

An addition to this years back to the island event was that each member of the band, for the first time EVER, would be performing a solo set.  I wasn’t sure how to count this since I count all my Hanson shows – but I decided to count each one as 1/3 of a show – so all 3 combined would add 1 more show to the count.

First up was Taylor. It was raining a bit during his set so I didn’t get as much video as I would like because I was fearing for my cameras being out in the elements. Fortunately it didn’t rain too hard – but it would have been ok if it did since we were able to just go back to the room and change – unlike every other time I’ve gotten soaked at a concert.

Make It Out Alive
Kiss Me When You Come Home
When You’re Gone
Be My Own
Every Word I Say
Get Up And Go

The next day was Zac, and there has been some rumors and stuff going on about this show. I think everyone that wasn’t there assumed things happened that didn’t based on hearsay.  I did not think Zac was pissed off, I think he was teasing about trying to get everyone to sing louder and if they didn’t he would leave.  As far as ending his set by dropping the guitar near the amp – I think that was all for dramatic effect, not that he was pissed off.  (He did everything on his setlist so it’s not like he was coming through with his earlier ‘threat’)

This Is The Jam
Letters in the Mailbox
Chasing Down My Dreams
Fire on the Mountain
Broken Angel
I Am
Get So Low
Devils Nachos

The final night – they saved the best for last (his words.) and Isaac had his turn. I truly do think the solo sets got better as the event went along and Isaac had a great set! He talked a little bit about lyrics and did the longest set out of everyone.  He was also the first to repeat a song when he did Best of Times but I don’t think that anyone minded.

Minute Without You
So Lovely
More Than Anything
Call Me
Too Young To Kill
Best of Times

I ended up getting 1 new never before heard (by me) song from Zac and 2 from Isaac’s set.

Book Review: Summer Sins

summersinsI tend to be drawn to these books moreso for the backstory than for the fact that they are erotic and/or romance novels.  This book caught my attention because the main character, Emma, works for a tabloid magazine called Scandal.  She researches her articles typically by actually doing whatever it was that she is writing about to get a better perspective on it.  So when there is a BDSM club in town that needs to be written about, Emma decides to go on location and see what kind of information she can find as well as maybe indulge herself a little as well. She is worried her plan may backfire when she meets a guy there and actually starts falling for him.  She writes a couple of articles and submits a vague one to her editor, who seems to be interested in publishing it.  But what ends up published is not what she submitted and a bit more than she had bargained for…

This was a short story, 70 pages, and was an easy read. The shorter stories are always better because they don’t waste time setting up all the characters in the story.  I did have a guess about how the major problem in the book was going to unravel, to a certain extent, but was not sure how everyone would react and what the final outcome would be.  I was happy with how everything wrapped up though!

I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review, I was not otherwise compensated.
