    Alina Baraz & JMSN Bring The Vibes to First Ave

    The Context Yesterday was the day, the day I got to see two of the artists that have dominated my listening habits over the last few years. We’re talking years of music coming together on the same stage on the very same night back to back. I was fangirling hard, but as this is a […] More

    Taylor Swift Rocks Her First Night at U.S. Bank Stadium

    As we entered the stadium, attendees were each given a wristband to wear during her show. When Taylor Swift took the stage at the US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, the wristbands wrapped around each audience member’s wrist filled the stadium with the color red.

    The Route 47 Pub and Grub – The Iron Maidens

    Sweet Heat: The Soundset 2018 Experience

    I have to be a bad luck charm for Soundset Weather. What did I do to piss off the weather gods every time I went to Soundset? I better stop calling Chance The Rapper so corny, maybe he actually controls the weather. Of the Soundsets I’ve attended, one year featured blistering heat, another featured blistering […] More

    Stryper Rocks Route 47 On God Damn Evil Tour

    With Stryper hitting The Route 47 Pub And Grub (formerly Pickle Park) for a wonderful, intimate show, I can say this, the show was fantastic! The sound that this venue has is great.

    Sofi Tukker Goes Batsh*t Crazy at the Fine Line

    Five Stars. 11/10. Two thumbs up way up. I could go on forever with all the praise for Sofi Tukker’s show at the Fine Line.
