Pitbull unleashes fire on Sac Town

What a fun night at the Hard Rock Casino, located 30 minutes north of Sacramento!  At the casino, there were so many excited fans to see Pitbull.

Collie Buddz shows the Midwest how to have a good time

It’s not every day you get to go to a Collie Buddz concert. It’s even less often that you get to go to a Shwayze and Collie Buddz show, but when it happens, believe me, it’s a night like no other. On November 11th, the two artists came to St. Louis and performed a fantastic […]

Dirty Heads’ eighth studio album ‘Midnight Control’ slaps

One thing I love about Dirty Heads is while they have an extremely signature sound, it’s still nearly impossible to put your finger on exactly what makes Dirty Heads the Dirty Heads. I opened the listening link for Midnight Control, the Huntington Beach five-piece’s eighth studio album, a couple weeks ago. I had no idea […]

Krooked Treez brings island vibes with ‘You Better Belize It’

It’s the return of Krooked Treez! These native Californians are dropping it hot with their sound that will leave you feeling so damn happy and inspired at the same time. It’s a multi-plexity of an old roots style with a mix of hip hop and reggae dub thrown in there with a huge smile.  The […]

Wednesday at the Marquee Theater in Tempe, AZ was a night to remember and memorialize the ever-talented, ever-unique and ever-charismatic Andrew James Chaves of Arizona indie-meets-hip hop-meets-reggae supergroup Katastro. Chaves, Katastro’s founding member and frontman, passed away in a tragic car accident on May 12th, 2022 in Newport Beach, CA, stunning the community and forever […]

California Roots 2022: Day Four

The fourth and final day of Cali Roots 2022 was one for the books. We laughed, we cried, we danced, we loved, we sang, we vibed and we all connected on a level that no one can describe quantitatively without sounding a little ‘woo-woo’. Simply put — it was magic. We were magic. Day Four […]

Dirty Heads gets it ‘Kraken’ in Apopka, Florida

One of the best lineups I’ve seen all year hit a brand-new amphitheater in Apopka, Florida on July 16th!

The local Florida band that […]

The sun was […]

California Roots 2022: Day One

Cali Roots 2022 came and went, and we are all the better for it. All the waiting, wishing, praying was worth it — just like we had faith it would be. Patience was a small price to pay for what we experienced Memorial Day Weekend and those hugs, smiles, laughs were the currency. Most of […]
