Sondre Lerche At The Independent

Sondre_Lerche_by_Stefan_2

The live show is alive and well. Everyone loves a great album, a single you can’t get out of your head, a music video that blows your mind over and over. But the concert hall is where you can unite with real, live human beings, where strangers come together for music. Concerts helps make a community out of individual listeners. There you can connect with a performer directly- not through a screen, but face to face.


“A Record Review” – Couches Slackin’ Since The 80s

Photo on 10-5-14 at 10.39 PM

I believe in live performance. I love seeing bands in person, up front and center stage to be able to get a sense of what people can do, and frankly I’m looking for bands that can WOW me into wanting to listen to their  recordings… this is always how I’ve traditionally enjoyed music. When I was […]


Behind the Mynd Episode VI: Egg~Mars~Ford~Stars

Behind The Mynd

In Episode Vi Thunderegg helps us open the show. He is amazing as always, such a knowledgeably hilarious human he is. Later on, Aaron Ford joins us to showcase some of his music, a look into his creative process, writing in a Mexican hotel rooms’ closet, and how our eyebrows show our astrological signs. A wonderful event over all!


Ivan & Alyosha, The Record Company, and Branches at The Independent, 08.14.13

The Record Company_Anna Larina 5

A last minute addition to the bill, San Francisco’s Branches started off the show with a living room-style set on the Independent’s big stage. They were impressive performing as a three-piece, but also made me wish to hear them full-band one of these days. I may not have much to say, but rest assured it’s […]

BEFORE THE BRAVE NW TOUR

Before_The_Brave_Tour

I get bored super easy! So when I saw that Before The Brave was finally going on tour I told them “I want in!”

I’m not going to Lie … I may have begged a bit. It’s possible I may have been telling Jason Perry Stevens for months, “the second you go on tour … I want in!” I told him I would be his back up dancer, pr pro, merch babe, pack mule, anything the band needed.

LIVE REVIEW: I The Mighty

I The Mighty

A few weeks ago a friend put me onto I The Mighty, a Californian progressive/alternative rock band in the same vein as Circa Survive and Saosin. I initially assumed the band must be based out of LA as many other up and coming alternative rock bands are. It was refreshing to find that the four-piece […]


From Indie to Majors & Back Again: Two Local musicians go from Major Deals to Self Release & Keep the Fire Alive

It’s every young aspiring musicians dream to get signed to a major label and make records for the rest of their life–at least it used to be. However most will never get there. People give up hope, they get beaten down by the music business, their songs or haircut don’t fit the times, no one […]

BOOTS & BIKES
