LIVE REVIEW & PHOTOS: Assuming We Survive, Colorado Springs, CO

“I once dropped off my daughter at school in our tour bus, and she was embarrassed!” lead singer of Assuming We Survive, Adrian Estrella told my dad and I, to which my father responded with, “Well of course, dads are supposed to embarrass their kids!” It seems a little cheesy and awkward to have your parent hanging out with you when you’re trying to be cool around the lead singer of your favorite band, but that’s where I was on Sunday night.

ALBUM REVIEW: The Woodsman’s Babe – ‘Babeland’

The Woodsman’s Babe is an acoustic indie solo project straight out of Los Angeles that blends life’s crazy uncertainty with complex tales of passionate love, lost love, and a longing for love. Babeland is the third release following their 2015 self-titled full-length in April of 2015, and their self-titled EP in April of 2014. The band like to keep things consistent, and this release was no exception. In all, Babeland is just layers upon layers of sad stories, and solo artist Joe Lengson’s ability to place listeners in his shoes is…

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…

ALBUM REVIEW: As It Is ‘Never Happy, Ever After’

I’m sure if you’ve been paying attention to the pop-punk scene at all in the past eight months, you’ve heard the name As It Is thrown around. As It Is became the first UK band to sign to Fearless Records in October 2014, and since then, have been making some pretty significant waves. Now, these waves are about to get a little bit bigger due to the release of their debut, full-length album Never Happy, Ever After. This album is the perfect mixture of angst and passion, and is filled…

LIVE REVIEW: Wake Up The Souls Tour – System of a Down, Ziggo Dome, Amsterdam NE

The “Wake Up The Souls” tour marks the centenary of the 1915 Armenian genocide. It’s a subject that the four Armenian-Americans of System of a Down of course feel very strongly about. So, tonight in Amsterdam is not just an event to showcase the music of one of the past 20 year’s most definitive bands, but a platform to draw attention to recognising the Armenian genocide. Not only this, but to raise awareness for the atrocities that have been committed across the planet since and that still occur today.

ALBUM REVIEW: Eschar ‘Nova’

When a band releases a completely instrumental album, they don’t leave a lot of room for error. The band can’t hide behind catchy lyrics and stunning vocals if their instrumentals are only subpar at best. They are laying everything they have out in front of you, and presenting you with the most genuine listening experience possible. To tell a story without words is a feat few are willing to take on, but Eschar, a post-rock band from the UK , have stepped up and taken the challenge. They are guiding…
