LIVE REVIEW: Kodaline w/ Gavin James, New York, NY

LIVE REVIEW: The Pains of Being Pure At Heart, NYC

With summer vacation just around the bend, it was time for me to start completing my to-do-before-I-go-back-home list.

Definitely shoe-gazey, indie-pop, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart played Days of Abandon, their newest LP, as well as some older hits from their previous…
