2016 Wrap Up

December 31, 2016

If you’ve been paying attention to UBL at all this year I’m sure you’ve noticed the lack of posts. Personally, I don’t think I’ve ever had as rough a year as 2016 and I’ll be happy to see it go. Unfortunately one of the first things that happens when I’m really down is that I...

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...

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...

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...

January 23, 2015: Saint Andrew’s Hall, Detroit

It’s hard to believe that Motion City Soundtrack’s Commit This To Memory turns 10 this year. I remember where I was the first time I heard it. I had just discovered the band the summer before and happened to be at a party where one of the...

Jessica’s Favorite Performances of 2014

December 23, 2014

It was a bit harder this year to really narrow down my top performances. I saw 114 different bands in 2014 (thanks mostly to a couple of great festivals) so you can see why it might have been a bit of a task to narrow it down to just 10 like I did last year. I...

Metro Times Blowout 17 Review Part III: Motion City Soundtrack

May 20, 2014

While my desire to be there for every band that played on my second MTB night was strong, I still couldn’t get myself out before Motion City Soundtrack took the stage at The Loving Touch in Ferndale. It was part exhaustion from the night before, part getting over a cold, and just...

Metro Times Blowout 17 Review Part II: Tunde Olaniran and Flint Eastwood

May 13, 2014

The second half of my first Metro Times Blowout night featured two artists that I have come to look forward to seeing live. We’ve reviewed them both before and although their music is very different, the reason I love them is the same: They put on a hell of a live show.

Since starting the blog, I’ve...

Metro Times Blowout 17 Review Part I: YUM and The HandGrenades

May 8, 2014

When I first found out about Metro Times Blowout a few weeks ago I had to wonder how I could have missed it. A local music festival that features a long list of local bands spread over the metro-Detroit area seems like it would have been on my radar a long time ago but, alas,...
