Single Review: Michigander – Mexico

Single Review: Michigander – Mexico

September 2, 2016

This summer has flown by. It seems like only yesterday I was sitting down to listen to Jason Singer, aka Michigander’s, first single, “Nineties.” The summer went so fast that I barely had time to start going through withdrawals from that single before getting some new music from Singer.

June 5, 2016: The Fillmore, Detroit

The air that filled the Fillmore a few nights ago was filled with anticipation and a fair bit of sadness. I myself was filled with mixed emotions as the night began but we’ll save that for part II of this review. For now, let’s focus on the kick ass openers...

April 29, 2016

I’ve been waiting for new music from Kalamazoo’s own Jason Singer, aka Michigander, since I first discovered him while perusing the Real Feels video archive late one night. As there were only a limited number of tracks I could find from Michigander, seeing them on the roster for Fusion Show’s...

Concert Review: Fusion Shows Eighth Birthday Show

January 10, 2016

The first live show of the year can really set the pace and help you get excited for every other concert to come. When I saw that it was time to celebrate Fusion Shows’ birthday and that some new and old favorites would be performing I knew that it would be the perfect way to...

Jessica’s Favorite Performances of 2015

December 28, 2015

2015 was not an easy year which means that UBL took a backseat. I reviewed a lot less albums and attended half as many shows as last year. While I missed some concerts that I would have loved to see, I did get to see a lot of bands that have been on my concert bucket...

April 22, 2015: The Loving Touch, Ferndale

I had figured that the odds of Andy Hull ever playing any Right Away, Great Captain songs live were just about slim to none. When he announced a solo tour with Thrice front man, Dustin Kensrue, I still didn’t want to get my hopes up just in case....

Album Review: Manchester Orchestra – Cope

Album Review: Manchester Orchestra – Cope

April 6, 2014

I remember the very first song I heard by Manchester Orchestra. I had never heard of the band before, but found someone talking about them in one of those indie blogs I was obsessed with at the time. The writer raved so much about them that I just...

Jessica’s Top Performances of 2013

December 21, 2013

This year was a fantastic year of concerts for me. I saw a total of 15 concerts with 44 artists which is the most I’ve seen in a single year. All these great performances (I wasn’t disappointed once) made it a pretty daunting task to narrow it down, but somehow I managed to do it.

Tuesday, November 19, 2013: St. Andrew’s Hall, Detroit, Michigan

Unfortunately I couldn’t make it in time to see O’Brother’s full set. They were mid-song when we walked into St. Andrew’s. The stage was awash in red light, casting the band in shadows which completely fit their sound. Dark, mysterious, a little...
