    The Revivalists and Rayland Baxter Folk Rock The Palace

    Clarity is difficult to achieve, a blurred line that is almost impossible to figure out. When it comes to clarity of sound during a show, bands vary greatly but normally hover around album quality. We all remember that band who was bad live, though. Who was yours? Mine was Matchbook Romance. The rhythm, lyrics, and […] More

    Wanna Sit in an SUV With Eminem? Here’s How.

    There are many stereotypical knee-slappers about Midwest cities. No city is the butt of more jokes than “the D,” “Det-roilet,” or just plain Detroit. Once the gold standard of cities, it is now home to a lot of hardship and resilience, to say the least. Yet it gave birth to one of the most influential […] More

    Bring Me The Horizon and a Large, Light-up Square at the Armory

    The late Chester Bennington once wrote, “Time is a valuable thing, watch it fly by as the pendulum swings.” The pendulum, in my opinion, is a metaphor for age. Age is normally measured in years (unless you’re the unruly parents who have to measure in months). As times goes by you go through fazes and […] More

    Addicted to Hamilton? Theater Legend T. Mychael Rambo has the Cure

    Slang and words with double meanings can sometimes be comical, or even disturbing. Consider “addiction.” Addiction is a word with scary loaded meaning! The true meaning is “someone who keeps doing an act to endure a high.” Yet it can be used as a comical escape to describe to a lifestyle or happenings. An example […] More

    Warning: this article contains sensitive material The King of Pop died nearly ten years ago, but Michael Jackson’s legacy lives on through his timeless music, high-pitched screams, iconic dance moves…and rumors of inappropriate acts with children.

    Atmosphere Infest Palace in St. Paul

    I’m listening to Atmosphere! This used to sound crazy. It gave the impression you were listening to meteors or screams from the universe. That is, of course, until the term was co-opted by a Minnesota based hip-hop crew with members named after a strong-skinned terrestrial mollusk (Slug, a.k.a. Sean Daley) and a beefy workaholic eusocial insect […] More

    Psychic Revival Mesmerize the 7th St. Entry

    Original ideas are dazzling and evoke a range of emotions. The idea may be as complex as the flux capacitor from Back To The Future or putting arm holes in a blanket (the Snuggie). The effect is the same: the shiny object controls us until examination helps us understand the high. This happened to me […] More

    Subtle Beats Master John Grant Stops by Fine Line

    Months of the year! Imaginary timelines developed to measure patterns throughout the year in prehistoric times. Since then, months have developed stereotypes of what expect from them. For example, February is a dark, cold, and kinda worthless month in which gentleman are normally fined on the 14th for participating in cuffing season. November! A time […] More
