  • Nate Ruess @ Webster Hall

    IMG_0868

    Some artists may have cold feet when heading out on their own. It’s new territory. You have to forge a fine line to reliving the material that fans may recognize you for while introducing them into your new material. Will they be receptive to it? It’s a crap shoot honestly. Some artists roll snake eyes,…

  • Free Press Summer Festival

    Major Lazer

    Are you still looking for a festival to spend your hard-earned dollars on for a unique experience? Nowadays, it’s getting tougher and tougher. The talent pool is getting shorter and the revolving lineups are more to akin to the tilt-o’-whirl at a kid’s amusement park. Not only do I look for a unique experience at…

  • MEB Band Profile: Fidlar

    Fidlar-2

    I had found out about Fidlar almost by accident. A friend of mine had suggested that I check out the skate-punk band from Los Angeles, California when they came into my neck of the woods. I’m always intrigued at the possibility of new music, so I took him up on it. The crazy thing was,…

  • Walk Off The Earth @ Bowery Ballroom

    Walk Off The Earth-6

    “Oh oh oh/Sing it all away, sing it all away my darlings”. Watching Burlington, Ontario band, Walk Off The Earth wasn’t your conventional concert.

  • Kiesza @ Irving Plaza

    Kiesza

    I’m sure everybody has heard “Take U There”, the infectious collaboration between Kiesza and Jack U. (Diplo & Skrillex). With the massive success of that single, people were able to actually find out Kiesza solo and how strong she is especially with her recently released album, Sound Of A Woman. Irving Plaza in New York…

  • Full Circle Tour @ Best Buy Theater

    Of Mice & Men

    I’m actually going to deviate from the script a tad bit and tell you a story. We’ll get back to the conventional concert story-teller rhetoric in a minute. During the intermission before Of Mice & Men were due to play, I walked out and met a young fan who was sitting near the entrance by…

  • The Maine @ Cannery Ballroom

    The Maine

    This past Tuesday, May 12th, The Maine played Nashville, TN with support from The Technicolors, Knuckle Puck, and Real Friends. This lineup had me a bit skeptical, featuring two pop punk bands which seem vastly different from both The Maine and The Technicolors. However, this lineup proved to flow very smoothly and ended up being…
