The Most Important Thing We’ve Learned: Treat Every Show Like It’s The Most Important One Of Your Career

You finally landed that gig that will put you on the map.  You put countless hours into practice and promotion, text everyone in your contacts list (even that girl you had a crush on back in high school ), and strike a deal with that shady promoter to sell 50 presale tickets, otherwise you’ll have to mortgage your parent’s house. After weeks of stressing out, the day is finally here. You pick out your best clothes, do all your pre-show rituals, and load into the venue. Now you are ready…

Live Review & Photos: Bush at REBEL, Toronto

May 18 will forever be scarred by the tragic loss of one of the greatest grunge (and overall rock n’ roll) singers of all time, Chris Cornell. On that day of shock and sadness there was a positive caveat for fans to come together and enjoy music of the same era as Bush passed through the Toronto’s Rebel Nightclub while on tour for their latest album Black and White Rainbows. After opening their 105-minute set with their very first single dating back to 1994, “Everything Zen,” frontman Gavin Rossdale commented…

Starting the night off were Tennessee indie rockers, Colony House. A band which features two sons of renowned Christian pop singer Steven Curtis Chapman. Their energy and enthusiasm radiated…

Live Review & Photos: The Shelters At The Starline, Oakland, CA

The weather and traffic battled it out for which would be worse last Thursday evening during my drive to Oakland, CA. The traffic won. Luckily I gave myself enough time to arrive, grab a bite to eat, and catch the start of the show. The Starline Social Club is a historic building dating back to 1893. Once a ballroom, it now houses a restaurant and bar downstairs, and an ample sized room upstairs. Complete with original wood floors, booth seating, another bar, and tin ceiling tiles, the vintage room was a…

The very first time was our tour with Major League” I had gone to that show (Thanks to Infectious Mag!) and there were about 20-30 people in the crowd, myself included, but that didn’t stop them from giving an amazing show & tonight was no different. They opened up their…

LIVE REVIEW: Alex G At The Middle East, Boston

“I always break a f*cking [guitar] string, man,” Alex G bemoaned to his sold-out audience at the Middle East Nightclub Tuesday, April 12. “And now you guys are going to have to see the worst show of your lives.” That wasn’t the general consensus of the myriad of hip kids gathered at the Middle East downstairs, who gathered to see Alex G, Porches, and Your Friend. They swirled around in clothing that was equal parts stylish and fashionably offensive, donning brash colors and patterns absurdly clashing. In the midst of…
