“Bucket List” Day at SXSW

“Bucket List” Day at SXSW

I’ll probably think of my last day at SXSW as the “bucket list” day. That is to say that I crossed a whole lot of names off of the mental list of artists that I’d love to see but never had. Just on Friday alone I saw Emmylou Harris, Divine Fits (who I interviewed on […]

See what albums the WERS staff picked as their favorites from 2012

Post-two concept albums, a politically charged rock opera, a throwback ’60s garage band alter-ego, and a regrettably unforgettable iHeartRadio Music Festival performance, what could possibly be left for Green Day to accomplish? To keep on rocking of course; three-fold to be exact. The first installment of their album trilogy, Uno!, takes everything you were expecting […]
