Album Review: The Stools – Q-NailsAugust 12, 2018
One of the best things about running this blog has been the plethora or new music I’ve discovered in the process. I find myself listening to bands that I never would have even given a standing chance to before expanding my musical horizons a bit. Another big perk is getting more exposure to the local...
Mo Pop Festival 2016: Day 2August 14, 2016
The morning of day two of Mo Pop Festival was much different than that of day one. First off, it was raining which helped cool it down a bit (though the humidity still felt a bit ridiculous). Secondly, my mood had done a complete 180 after a day packed with amazing performances. I no longer had to...
Mo Pop Festival 2016: Day 1August 9, 2016
I’m going to be honest, the last thing I wanted to do when I woke up the Saturday of Mo Pop was get up and go sit out in the heat all day. I had been dreading the day all week after the temps rose back up to unbearable. That doesn’t even factor in the...
Concert Review: So Long, Farewell Tour Part II featuring Motion City SoundtrackJune 14, 2016
June 5, 2016: The Fillmore, Detroit
While the time between sets can feel never-ending when you’re waiting for one of your favorite bands to take the stage, I was happy to let the rest of the night pass as slowly as possible. But, as it always does, time seemed to move at super speed and it...
Concert Review: So Long, Farewell Tour Part I featuring Baggage, Let It Happen, and Have MercyJune 10, 2016
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...
Concert Review: X Ambassadors and MuseJanuary 15, 2016
January 14, 2016: Joe Louis Arena, Detroit
This concert was probably my most anticipated concert ever. I’ve been a Muse fan for a long time which makes it very strange that I had never seen them in concert. Ever since they announced the release of their newest album, Drones, I’ve been on the look out...
Jessica’s Favorite Performances of 2015December 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...
Single Review: Gosh Pith – Gold ChainDecember 9, 2015
A band’s live performance can make or break your opinion of them. Admittedly, one of my favorite things about going to a concert is getting to check out some new to me bands and, hopefully, discovering new music to fall in love with. I’ve been exposed to a lot of home grown acts since starting...
Concert Review: Brothertiger, Gosh Pith, and JR JRNovember 15, 2015
November 13, 2015: Royal Oak Music Theatre, Royal Oak
There’s nothing like a concert that you’ve been looking forward to for months to get you through a crappy week. It’s been a big year for JR JR as their new self-titled album has started to garner the talented duo some overdue attention on national airwaves....
Concert Review: Tigers Jaw, New Found Glory, and YellowcardNovember 8, 2015
November 5, 2015: Saint Andrew’s Hall, Detroit
There’s nothing like a show that’s filled to the brim with nostalgia and excited fans to help lift your spirits and remind you why you enjoy going to concerts in the first place. It’s been a rough year concert wise, mostly because I just seem to have no energy...
Album Review: Flint Eastwood – Small Victories EPNovember 2, 2015
Interview with The Old AdageAugust 31, 2015
New Discovery: FleurieAugust 21, 2015
I was skeptical about checking out the new Scream MTV show but as an avid fan of the original franchise and just a horror lover in general I decided to give it a shot. It’s not amazing but I’m enjoying the ride so far and looking forward to see what else the show has to offer. What...
