Single Review: Michigander – Nineties

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...

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...

Eisley has been one of my favorite bands for quite some time now. While I’ve always been a fan, it was the release of their album, The Valley, that cemented their place among my all time favorite bands of all time making their live show a must see whenever...

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...

One of the few talents I seem to possess is the ability to win Twitter competitions, which sometimes spreads into other websites. There was a contest on Paste’s website to win tickets to see Arkells on their fall tour as well as a meet and greet...

The chance to see Jeremy Messersmith twice in one year was definitely something I couldn’t pass up. His newest album, Heart Murmurs, is still holding on strong as one of my favorite albums of the year and I knew seeing it...

Every time we get out to see Flint Eastwood they are doing something bigger than they have before and we couldn’t be happier for them. So when they announced their first annual Flint Family BBQ to celebrate heading back into the studio to churn out some new...

I’m a bit partial to Margot & the Nuclear So and So’s. They were one of the first non-radio bands that I had found back in the day when I finally started to expand my musical horizons. Why I hadn’t gotten out...

To be honest I’ve been in a bit of a funk lately. Perhaps it’s due to this never ending winter we’ve been experiencing (seriously starting to forget what grass smells and feels like). This coupled with a few stressful weeks at work has made getting out of...

The only thing I wanted to do after a long, stressful week at work and a night of basically no sleep was crawl into bed and sleep until Monday morning. The only thing keeping me going was getting to see Into...

The new Jeremy Messersmith album, Heart Murmurs, increased my want to see him live exponentially the more I listened to it. Thankfully I only had to wait a week after the release to hear him in the perfect intimate setting of The Pike Room.

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...
