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...

January 10, 2016

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...

Single Review: Parade of Lights – Feeling Electric

May 9, 2015

One of our favorite new finds of last year is about to release their first full length LP. Parade of Lights gave us a little sample of what to expect from Feeling Electric with the title track earlier this week and it reminds me of why I originally fell in love with the...

Single Review: Lights & Caves – Daydreamer

April 29, 2015

It’s been just over a year since I saw the Lansing based band, Lights & Caves play The Pike Room so they’ve kind of been off my radar. Listening to their album, In Santori, to prepare for this write up reminds me of why I was excited for that night in the first place....

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...

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...

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...

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...

Sometimes you hear a band for the first time and instantly become obsessed. That was me when I heard Night Terrors of 1927 on Alt Nation for the first time. At the time, all I could find was “Watch the World...

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.
