Album Review: AØK – Waves

Album Review: AØK – Waves

February 15, 2019

After making music for eight years, Grand Rapids indie-pop duo AØK have decided to call it quits, but not before releasing one last set of dance inducing tracks. Guitarist Kyle Sullivan and singer Angela Teeple (aka Angela B) wanted to ensure that their farewell EP, Waves, would send them out on the high note so...

Mo Pop Festival 2016: Day 1

Mo Pop Festival 2016: Day 1

August 9, 2016

I’m going to be honest, the last thing I wanted to do when I woke up the Saturday of Mo Pop was get up and go sit out in the heat all day. I had been dreading the day all week after the temps rose back up to unbearable. That doesn’t even factor in the...

Jessica’s Favorite Albums of 2015

Jessica’s Favorite Albums of 2015

December 30, 2015

It’s been a rough year personally for me and one of the things that suffered the most was UBL. I didn’t attend as many concerts and found myself unable to muster the motivation to listen to new music on the regular. When it finally came to compiling a list of my favorite albums of the...

Jessica’s Favorite Performances of 2014

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...

July 25, 2014: The Blind Pig, Ann Arbor

I’d like to start out by apologizing for this being so late! I’m usually quick to get concert reviews done, but my life has been a small bundle of chaos lately with no real downtime to spend on any side projects. With that said, lets get right to...

Metro Times Blowout 17 Review Part III: Motion City Soundtrack

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

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

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,...

April 19, 2014: Royal Oak Music Theatre, Royal Oak

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...
