INTERVIEW: Mikey Wax

I recently got a chance to sit down, or rather, stand in a parking lot and talk with up and coming singer/songwriter, Mikey Wax. There was no green room so were were standing next to his lovely new minivan at Velo Cult which can only be described as the most Portland, Oregon place on the planet. It’s a bike shop and a pub. Told you it’s so very Portland. We discussed his first headlining tour and of course his music. Take a look at the conversation below! You can purchase…

WATCH: Walk The Moon Perform “Shut Up And Dance” Acoustic

When most bands do an acoustic version of a song, likely they have an acoustic guitar, harmonies and the lead singer singing melody. Well, it shouldn’t be a surprise, but WALK THE MOON are not a normal band so they don’t do a normal acoustic song. The entire band is involved even though there isn’t a bass. Both Kevin Ray and Eli Maiman play acoustic guitars while Nick Petricca plays shakers and Sean Waugaman played a pizza box with drum brushes. See, I told you they did it differently. The best…

LIVE REVIEW: TALKING IS HARD Tour WALK THE MOON w/ The Griswolds Roseland Theatre, Portland, OR

WALK THE MOON’s front man, Nicholas Petricca is one of those people you question if they are actually human. He has this insane ability to dance sporadically throughout a 90-minute set, scream at the top of his lungs, and doesn’t even visibly break a sweat, or seem winded. That said, the rest of us sure do during this crazy dance party that is the TALKING IS HARD Tour. Please follow and like us:

If You Need One, Here’s Another Reason To Go See WALK THE MOON This Tour

Merch tables have lost a lot of their luster since online shopping came into existence.

This is where WALK THE MOON’s brilliant idea comes in. For each city on the TALKING IS HARD tour, there will be a different poster. So, say you go to the Portland, OR show (that was totally…
