William Beckett Live In Studio

  Before The Academy Is… and Warped Tour fame, William Beckett played local shows in his hometown of Chicago under the name Remember Maine. It was just him and his guitar, back in the day, until The Academy Is… released their debut, “Almost Here,” one of the best pop-punk albums in a decade full of […]

Rocky Votolato on Coffeehouse

Rocky Votolato on Coffeehouse

Rocky Votolato recently released his seventh solo album, his first self-produced, and it’s awesome to see how he has grown as an artist since he came into the scene. In the mid 1990s, he was involved in two separate punk bands. Today, his music is distinctly folk – the kind of music you’d like to […]

Aoki, or as others love to call him “Asian Jesus”, has been around longer than one might expect. Not only has he been working for past decade, but […]

On the Verge: honeyhoney

On the Verge: honeyhoney

Santo and Ben Jaffe, the two core members of California band honeyhoney, were incredibly amusing to witness in person with their back and forth wisecracks and playful sarcasm. Their conversational chemistry lends itself well to their music, which pulls from rootsy stylings and adds them to the roster of impressive new Americana and folk musicians. […]
