    New Politics Return to Varsity Theater

    I walked in to the newly re-opened Varsity Theater to find the Live Nation buyout provided them with a real ticket window and beefed up security, but kept the charm of the original space.

    Sleeping With Sirens brought their pop-rock Gossip tour to the Cabooze last night. I arrived right as the first act, Southpaw, took the stage and the crowd was relatively thin at the time. The demographic was as expected for a more pop-punk type of bill, with more concertgoers wearing X’s on their hands than not. […] More

    Oh, Skyway Theatre. After a handful of bad experiences I swore I’d never go back to the less than classy establishment until Red Bull Sound Select and Flip Phone announced their stacked female lineup headlined by R&B legend, Kelis.
