Concert Review: Mikky Ekko and Alt-J

November 12, 2014

November 10, 2014: The Fillmore, Detroit

Alt-J have made a permanent spot in my favorite band list over the last 2 years. No matter what current new release I’m falling in love with, I always seem to find my way back to An Awesome Wave. Their new release, This Is All Yours, has also made...

October 14, 2014: The Pike Room, Pontiac

One of the few talents I seem to possess is the ability to win Twitter competitions, which sometimes spreads into other websites. There was a contest on Paste’s website to win tickets to see Arkells on their fall tour as well as a meet and greet...

September 27, 2014: The Pike Room, Pontiac

Having a lot of love for Prawn’s newest album, Kingfisher, I couldn’t really miss the chance to see them live. I made a note to pick up tickets, putting it off until I had some extra cash but between Chill on the Hill and getting sick, I managed...

July 25, 2014: The Blind Pig, Ann Arbor

I’d like to start out by apologizing for this being so late! I’m usually quick to get concert reviews done, but my life has been a small bundle of chaos lately with no real downtime to spend on any side projects. With that said, lets get right to...

Concert Review: Stu Larsen, The Once, and Passenger

August 20, 2014

August 17, 2014: The Fillmore, Detroit

In need of an August concert and more recently finding myself obsessed with Passenger, I decided his first Detroit show was a must. Unfortunately there was also a One Direction concert in town so maneuvering through the streets of Detroit and finding reasonably priced parking was made a bit more...

July 10, 2014

July 8, 2014: DTE Energy Music Theatre, Clarkston

It’s a no brainer for my friends and I to immediately buy Paramore tickets when we hear that they’re coming into town. Throw Fall Out Boy and New Politics into the mix and...

June 10, 2014

June 3, 2014: The Pike Room, Pontiac

The chance to see Jeremy Messersmith twice in one year was definitely something I couldn’t pass up. His newest album, Heart Murmurs, is still holding on strong as one of my favorite albums of the year and I knew seeing it...

May 6, 2014

April 25, 2014: The Pike Room, Pontiac

I’m a bit partial to Margot & the Nuclear So and So’s. They were one of the first non-radio bands that I had found back in the day when I finally started to expand my musical horizons. Why I hadn’t gotten out...

April 23, 2014: Royal Oak Music Theatre, Royal Oak Of course the week that I have three concerts is the same week that I get a horrible cold that takes just about everything out of me. Missing Ingrid Michaelson was not an option, so I prepared myself with a Nyquil...

May 1, 2014

April 22, 2014: The Shelter, Detroit

The Californian indie pop-rock band, Finish Ticket, took the stage to get the energy pumping throughout the crowd. Frontman Brendan Hoye has tremendous vocal control and is spot on when it comes to his talents. During their seven song set I kept hearing a mini...
