New Strokes Video Released

New Strokes Video Released

By now, the music world has heard two new tracks off of The Strokes’ March 26th release Comedown Machine. “One Way Trigger,” the a-Ha’s “Take On Me” inspired track, has led people to think the album will be completely in the same vein. This would be a complete departure from The Strokes original sound and acceptance of frontman Julian […]

Butch Walker Live at Central Presbytarian Church

Butch Walker Live at Central Presbytarian Church

Around one hundred and fifty people sat in the pews at the Central Presbytarian Church as Butch Walker took the stage last night, but they did not stay seated for long. The singer-songwriter stepped out onto the altar solo and took his place behind the piano. Walker kicked off the set with “ATL”, a moving […]

Touring KUT and Downtown Austin

Touring KUT and Downtown Austin

Day 2 of SXSW was an interesting one. After a morning of panels and free lunches we got to have some great conversations about the current state of radio. We toured the KUT station on the University of Texas and got insight on how other stations run. The facilities were great and it inspired me […]

Jukebox The Ghost Live at Brighton

Jukebox The Ghost Live at Brighton

Just a little bit of quirky, a dash of wit, and a lot of energy are what came together to make Jukebox the Ghost’s show at Brighton Music Hall to make a memorable one. Opening for Jukebox the Ghost first was The Spring Standards, a New York based band consisting of members James Clear, Heather […]

Cold War Kids at Clive Bar

Cold War Kids at Clive Bar

As of last night, I have seen Cold War Kids live four times in three different states. From the first night I saw them I was completely taken aback by their vigorous live energy. It’s infectious nature permeates the crowd whether you’re at a sold out House of Blues in Boston or closing out a […]

Natalie Maines and Dawes at the Moody Theater

Natalie Maines and Dawes at the Moody Theater

I’ll probably get killed for this, but one of the coolest things I saw on our first night at SXSW happened during the Natalie Maines set. As you might know, Maines is the former frontwoman on The Dixie Chicks but has branched off on her own since then. The band really sounded nothing like her […]

Butch Walker at SXSW

Butch Walker at SXSW

I came down to Austin without a set schedule. I figured I would just go wherever, hang out with different people and be exposed to different music as a result. There was just one thing that I absolutely had to do: meet Butch Walker. Butch Walker is a singer-songwriter, the front man of Butch Walker […]

Clive Davis at Club 119

After a failed attempt to get into the highly desired Kendrick Lamar show at the Spotify House, I decided to head over to a different showcase downtown at Club 119. The Source as sponsoring this showcase and it featured two of my favorite artists right now, Ab-soul and Schoolboy Q. As I get in the […]

Lord Huron Live at the Moody Theater

Lord Huron Live at the Moody Theater

After hearing about Los Angeles folk rockers Lord Huron on various podcasts, they quickly secured a place in my heart. Between the anthemic woah-oh-oh’s and playful drum beats, I knew this would be a set not to miss at SxSW. As my first stop of the night, I didn’t know what to expect. Would the […]
