Chill on the Hill 2015 Part I: Arkells, Coleman Hell, Vinyl Theatre, Beartooth, Night Riots, and Thousand Foot Krutch

October 3, 2015

We had such a great time last year at Chill on the Hill that it was basically guaranteed that we’d snatch up tickets as soon as they went on sale. When the list of bands was released all I needed to see was Weezer’s name on the list to completely sell me...

Interview with The Old Adage

Interview with The Old Adage

August 31, 2015

There’s a catchy new single that has been caught in my head for weeks now and I’m happy to say that I’ve been lucky enough to sit down with the band that created it for an interview. Brother and sister duo Mimi and Nino Chavez, aka The Old Adage, have been crafting hook...

Chill on the Hill 2014 Part VI: Chevelle, Awolnation, and Rise Against

September 22, 2014

While I’m not a regular listener to any of the last three bands to play Chill on the Hill, I was still excited to see their live shows as I had heard great things about all of them. First up was Chevelle, which was probably the band I had the most...

Chill on the Hill 2014 Part V: Brick + Mortar, USS, Taking Back Sunday, and Silverstein

September 21, 2014

Brick + Mortar was another band that I went into without knowing anything about. I knew it was going to be a good set when shortly after they started, Brandon Asraf asked the hungover crowd “All the people sitting down, why the fuck are you sitting down?” It was a nice,...

Chill on the Hill 2014 Part IV: Hollow & Akimbo, Kyng, The Orwells, and Skaters

September 20, 2014

Having Hollow & Akimbo open up day two of Chill on the Hill was just icing on the cake of an already spectacular day of music. One of my favorite things about their self-titled debut was that each song was intricately layered enough so that you wouldn’t be able to...

Chill on the Hill 2014 Part II: Portugal. The Man, Sycamour, Grouplove, and The Bots

September 18, 2014

Aside from The Offspring, Portugal. The Man was basically the selling point of getting tickets to both days of Chill on the Hill. I had been waiting to see them live for years and it seemed that every time they were in town previously there was one reason or...

Chill on the Hill 2014 Part I: Bristol Street, Sleeper Agent, and My Goodness

September 17, 2014

Chill on the Hill may be part of the reason I got the worst sinus infection of my life but I have to say that it was worth it. Two days filled with bands that I had been waiting years to see along with some surprises. There were a few things that I wasn’t happy...

April 19, 2014: Royal Oak Music Theatre, Royal Oak

Detroit’s own Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. has been gaining quite a bit momentum over the last year. I had seen them once a few years ago at Arts, Beats, and Eats when they opened up for Panic! At the Disco...
