LIVE REVIEW: Fitz And The Tantrums, Seattle, WA

It’s not everyday when a band has their music played and promoted across multiple Top 40 and alternative radio stations simultaneously. Fitz And The Tantrums does just this. Fitz and The Tantrums are one of the few neo soul/indie pop-rock outfits that have been able to achieve this sought-after crossover success. Fitz And The Tantrums’ wide reach became apparent as I stood in line to enter the Showbox SoDo in Seattle. Fans ranged from the ages of 6 years old to mid-60s! The sextet hailing from Los Angeles managed to sell out…

10 Irish-Inspired Songs For St. Patrick’s Day

St. Patrick’s Day is one of the most underrated holidays out there.  It will never be as popular as Christmas or Halloween, though it very well should be.  Apart from celebrating with the color green, pub crawls, Irish culture, and, of course Patrick, himself, St. Paddy’s Day is also one of the holidays in which we get to hear some of the best music around.  Songs influenced by the pub and punk cultures are some of the most upbeat and communal, so in honor of one of my all time…

SHOW REVIEW: Brian Marquis

I have this overwhelming fear of writing reviews. Interviewing artists? No sweat. But watching them play and then writing about it strikes a fear into this little heart of mine that rivals the sinking feeling in my stomach when I can’t see my kid on the playground. What if they’re awful? What if I can’t find a single good thing to say about them and every artist I’ve ever respected reads that one review and now no one will ever talk to me? See? It’s terrifying. The only thing that…

INTERVIEW: Brian Marquis

Situated beneath the town’s mascot Tilly, Asbury Park’s Wonderbar is a favorite venue for locals and benny’s as well (that’s a tourist for those of you not in the know). As with the rest of the shore town, it’s got a not so secret soft spot for The Boss, but lately it’s been playing host to new acts that are just as talented. Tonight its guests are Brian Marquis and the rest of the Acoustic Basement Tour. Before the show I met up with Brian and discussed his upcoming album,…
