Mental Health Matters: Loneliness

It’s 3am, it’s every night for the past month, maybe two; at this point I’m unsure.  I have a cold cup of coffee that I keep reheating before I let it chill again & a notebook full of scrawling scribbles of some nonsensical blabber. There’s an email from my booking agent I’ve been dreading that I can’t open right now.  “Write everything down” I was told, but where to begin?  Touring has been gruelling, I feel so strung out & exhausted by the constant travelling, performing & travelling again. Every…

Mental Health Matters: My Work with Therapy

(photo credit: Danny DeRusso) I was born in love with my life. I was born in love with myself and I felt like that self-respect was connected to how much potential I had to squeeze every ounce of joy and success out of living that I could. I started self-harming when I was 11. I developed an eating disorder when I was 13. By 25, I was drinking to black out daily and had torpedoed most of my personal relationships. I assumed I had depression because I couldn’t shake this…

Interview: The Menzingers

(Photo credit: CharlesWrzesniewski) The Menzingers have it going on. Their last release, After the Party is one of my favorite new albums (and I’m not alone in that—it’s been highly regarded as one of the band’s best releases), and they’re currently on tour with Frank Turner and Lucero. Before they hit the road with Frank Turner and co. they made a stop at Boston Calling to play alongside weekend headliners The National, Alvvays, Eminem, The Killers, and more, which is where we caught up with them to discuss their most recent release,…

George Taylor Releases Haunting New Video For “Come Follow Me Down”

(Photo: Still from “Come Follow Me Down”) When you work in music, or even as a music fan you probably see a lot of really boring music videos. This is not one of them. In fact I’d go so far as to say this is one of the most visually compelling videos I’ve seen in a long time, and that’s especially great because the song is wonderfully captivating and it would be a real bummer if the video wasn’t just as stunning.   Taylor’s previous tracks have seen extensive Spotify coverage,…

Boston Calling Day 3 Highlights: Alvvays and Hecklers in the Comedy Arena

When I arrive at Boston Calling for Day 3, it’s already started drizzling. I put up my hood, zip up my jacket, and make my way from the Harvard Square T stop to the final day of Boston Calling 2018. It’s cold, it’s wet, and my body is tired from 2 days of festival-ing, but it’s the kind of tired that gives you energy and keeps you going back for more. It’s the kind of tired that tells you it’s been an unforgettable weekend. As I’m entering the gates of…

Boston Calling Day 2 Highlights: St. Vincent, The Menzingers, Comedy

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. One of my favorite things about festivals is the ability to not only see so many of your favorite bands in one setting, but to discover new favorites along the way. Every Boston Calling I come across a band that has either never been on my radar, or who I knew about and simply never made the time to get to know. At the first Boston Calling that was Marina and the Diamonds. Another year it was Bat For Lashes. This…

Boston Calling Day 1 Review: The Killers, The National, Pussy Riot, & More

It’s already 85 degrees as I make my way from the Harvard T stop through the crowds of festival goers, and begin the 15 minute walk through Harvard Square, over the Anderson Memorial Bridge, and finally arrive at the gates of the 9th Boston Calling Music Festival. It’s the festival’s second year at the Harvard Athletic Complex, and it already feels like many of the kinks from last year have been worked out. As I make my way from the pierogis to the cookie dough (because you know, research) and…
