Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo rock The Grove at Anaheim

Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo rocked The Grove of Anaheim on September 7th, taking attendees on a magical ride through their 42-year playbook of extraordinary musical mastery. I can still recall the first time my Pop played Pat Benatar for me… I was six years old and remember being blown away by the beautiful, powerful […]

Counting Crows rocks Paso Robles, CA

The 90s took over Vina Robles Amphitheater with alt rock legends Counting Crows, playing hits such as “Mr. Jones”, “A Long December” and “Daylight Fading”… just to name a few!

Mod Sun releases “Down”, following game-changing album

Rapper, rocker, book writer — these all describe artist Mod Sun. This modern mogul got a jumpstart in the rap game thanks to Machine Gun Kelly; I could be wrong, but, in my opinion, Mod Sun is absolutely killing it right now. His latest album, Internet Killed The Rockstar, feels like it came out 20 […]

Lindsey Stirling lights up San Diego

Having never been to a Lindsey Stirling show, I walked into the San Diego Civic Theater on August 31st with, what I can only call in retrospect, ignorance.

Did Fyre Fest 2.0 just happen on Padre Island?

Festival cancellations this year are no big news, but that usually happens early and with great deliberation. RIP Bonnaroo 2021 (waterlogged sad face). SOL Beach Festival, on the other hand, appears to have cancelled after fans had packed the grounds, some waiting up to three hours for VIP entry. Attendees quickly discovered the festival had […]

HIVE Festival 2021: Day Two

The second day of Salt Lake City’s HIVE Festival 2021 was happily upon us, a nonstop whirlwind of a day filled with A-list rap performance. Don Toliver, Jack Harlow, Joey Badass, Flo Milli, SAINt JHN, Tyla Yaweh, Yung Gravy and Kaash Paige rocked the festival from start to (almost) finish. And, then Post Malone — […]

Welcome to Rockville returns to Daytona Beach

Rock in the sunny state… When you think of Florida, you may think of beaches, good restaurants and fun times in the heat. Me, personally, I think of the best festival since Warped Tour! Welcome To Rockville is a yearly festival (like Warped Tour, only stagnant) that has a really, really, really good lineup of […]
