I’ve been patiently awaiting the arrival of Rival Summers’ new album ever since seeing them play Fusion Shows’ Eighth Birthday Show back in January. Although it’s felt like a long wait their new album couldn’t have come at a better time. The last few months have been rough ones making it hard...

February 5, 2016

Sometimes the best way to discover a new artist is to hear them perform live which is exactly how I fell in love with the music of DL Rossi. Packed into the intimate setting of The Loving Touch just over two years ago, a nice hush fell over the crowd as ...

How did I make it until the middle of April before seeing my favorite local bands play this year? That’s what I kept thinking when Flint Eastwood took the stage last Friday. As I’m sure I’ve said before, their live show is not to be missed, but I...

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...

After a long and frustrating day the last thing I wanted to do was go to a concert. All I really wanted was to curl up in bed and watch an awesomely bad movie but I reminded myself that no matter how exhausted I was, this concert would be...
