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...

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....

I would say that my Decemberists kick began back in mid-summer. One of the tracks from The King is Dead just happened to come up while my iPod was shuffling through tracks at work one day and I’ve been listening to the band nonstop...

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...

Grizfolk, a band from Los Angeles and Stockholm (currently residing in California), opened for BΔSTILLE. I listened to their single “The Struggle” before the concert, but other than that I hadn’t heard of them. They’re a drum led alt-folk band that has...
