Live Blog: Will Hoge/Marc Broussard

This is Toya. Tia, India and I are at the Will Hoge/Marc Broussard show waiting for Marc Broussard to go on. I didn't know what to expect from Will Hoge and was pleasantly surprised. He channels Chris Robinson,one of my favorite singers, every now and then. I was not mad at him at all. The guitarist is checking his guitar and I think he just played a riff from Rock Steady. Lord let it be.

I am a music snob. I am and I have to be careful. People do ask me questions as if I am an expert and I am by no means an expert. I know some experts and I don't have half as much knowledge as they do. I am however very opinionated when it comes to music and therefore some people think I know what I am talking about. I am usually right about artists to watch though (*ahem, been telling people about Robin Thicke since 1998, ahem*) but there are some things that even I didn't see coming. Like The Spice Girls. I remember being at my college radio station and our program director put a big note on the playlist for that week:"Play Wannabe every hour. This is going to be a huge hit." I thought he had lost it. And then... Yeah. I still don't get that one.

We need Marc Broussard to go on and sing Love and Happiness" right... go!

Well, I think people usually do listen to people who are strongly biased about anything. I guess they want to know why you like a particular artiste or type of music. Like, now you've made me want to check out this music, even for a minute or two.
