Rock group Ra is on a multi-city tour right now across the country landing in places like Cleveland, Colorado, and West Hollywood just to name a few. I had the pleasure of seeing them in New York City at an intimate venue where the fans were live and raring to go. Ra is one of the opening acts on this tour so their set was only 30 minutes long; a well worth 30 minutes though I must say. They performed hits from both From One and Duality CDs, including the ever popular Do You Call My Name on the From One CD. I loved the way they got the crowd to sing along during that song when lead singer Sahaj put the microphone towards us while the band stopped playing - acappella style. They also hit us with their new smash single Don't Turn Away, which will be included on their new CD Raw scheduled to release October 24th on their new record label Cement Shoes Records. This CD will have live tracks and a few new studio tracks. They completely rocked the joint, and the crowd loved them. They are on tour for another month coming to a city near you; I recommend you check them out. In the meantime, below is a link to their myspace website where you can hear a few of their hit singles and check out the tour schedule.

Fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld really out-did himself this season at Fendi. Dark colors were the trend on the Fendi runway, worn with dark tights and booties. Big belts worn high at the waist were in full effect, along with skinny belts to accentuate the waist line. As always their bags were beautiful; big and small, totes and satchels, and of course the ever popular Spy bag! As most of us know New York's Fashion Week was last week, but I'm not quite ready for Spring 2007 just yet. Check out a few pictures from Fendi's fall show.

Futuresex/Lovesounds is the CD to get right now. It is hot hot hot. JT will be as hot as Usher was with the 2004 Confessions cd, and you know SexyBack is the #1 single on the charts.... Congrats! Its sound is so different from what is currently out there, and appealing to many different genres. He's got funky beats, with a bit of a pop and rock sound attached. Producer Timberland really nailed it for Timberlake. His second release will be My Love, where his falsetto is brilliant and the beat is thumpin'.
