WATCH: The Weeknd Brings Kanye West Out During His Coachella Set

There’s nothing like having a guest artist come out at a concert. Last summer I went to the Hollywood Bowl to see Billy Joel, and was pleasantly surprised when I found out that Gavin DeGraw was opening for him, though he wasn’t featured on the lineup. Then, I was even more surprised when Adam Levine of Maroon 5, came out from backstage and sang a duet of “You May Be Right” with Joel. (I was more focused on Adam Levine’s hair than his vocals though. This was when he went…

PLAYLIST: Growing Up Austin

Disclaimer: My Growing Up playlist might be the weirdest grouping of songs you have ever seen. Not to mention their release years just jump from early 2000’s to 1960’s to just last year. In truth, I am still growing up and have a lot of learning to do. However, I can tell you what songs and artists have influenced me the most. In case you were too lazy to scroll to the bottom of this page, my name is Austin Heath and I am an 18-year-old senior in high school….

ALBUM REVIEW: One Direction ‘FOUR’

People often forget that Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson aren’t boys anymore. They are men in their 20s. Just as they’ve matured, so has their music. From the 90s R&B inspired “Stockholm Syndrome” and alt-rock “Night Changes” to indie-pop “Clouds” and 80s glam-rock inspired “Steal My Girl,” it’s clear that the days of One Direction’s bubble gum pop music are officially over.

ALBUM REVIEW: Echo Park ‘Deluge’

If music does anything, it pulls feelings and images out of us faster than anything else. It’s the sudden spark of a memory, the welling of tears, the urge to jump or run or sing or scream; it’s people connecting in a collective way—all relating. On their EP, Deluge, Echo Park bring all that and more to the table. Often times, a song will evoke an image; a scene will flitter across your mind, and suddenly, there’s a film there. “Circles” does that immediately, even without lyrics. Once those lines…
