    Finch_2014

    Life throws you curve balls from time to time – especially when you are a photographer. Finch‘s latest headlining tour was moved from the Electric Factory to Underground Arts in Philadelphia.

    Circa Survive 2014

    In dusting off the ol’ dictionary, it is known that the appropriate definition of ‘schema’ is “a representation of a plan or theory in the form of an outline or model.” If that doesn’t scream “dastardly evil plot”, then I don’t know why progressive rock masterminds Circa Survive decided to give their opening track this…

    havemercy

    2014 has been a mighty year for the “emo revival”. Momentum from 2013 has successfully carried over into this year, as great records from the likes of Prawn, Tigers Jaw, The Hotelier, and many more have occupied the playlists of teenagers, twentysomethings, and nostalgic adults alike. That being said, the scene as a whole has…
