Bumpin’ and Grindin’: R. Kelly’s Comeback and the Night I Witnessed it in Person

2013 was a pretty good year in music I have to say. A ton of new bands and artists popped up out of nowhere with really exciting albums (Autre Ne Veut, A$AP Ferg, Speedy Ortiz) and artists that have been around for a while produced some of their best work to date (I’m looking at you Vampire Weekend, Kanye West, and The National). However for one individual, 2013 was the year of a massive musical rebirth. That person is none other than...

Mission to Meet the Arctic Monkeys… Forests, Security Guards and Fences OH MY!

How I “stumbled” upon Arctic Monkeys while crawling through a forest (really though)… In honor of Alex Turner’s birthday, I am taking the opportunity to tell the internet my somewhat odd and exhilarating  story of how I met the band, Arctic Monkeys… It all began on a morning in May when we left for Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland where Arctic Monkeys were going to play their last show...

The Day I Danced On Stage At A Smallpools Concert

Smallpools; not to be confused with large hotubs. This indie rock band is taking America by storm with its’ upbeat music full of contagious rhythm. I was lucky enough to see then at their Richmond show on December 7. Finals week was approaching, but I knew from the moment I won those tickets I would be apart of a wild experience. The venue was only for those 21 and older, but that did not stop my friend and I from getting into this...

Drowners

Music that makes you feel cool… After an eventful 2013 that included the release of their debut EP, Between Us Girls, and the several gigs opening for Arctic Monkeys in the US, this New York City based band have most definitely come into the music scene with a spurred kick. Thankfully, their indie-pop-with-a-touch-of-early-punk music is a departure from the pop-y synth indie scene that has recently dominated alternative charts,...
