A Night at the Entry (My First Venture in Reviewerdom)

Disclaimer Bearing in mind  the advice  I was given by a failed stand up comedian who was not hindered by his inebriation nor hesitant  in flexing his Berklee educated brain (or flamboyant humor,)   I am  just going to endeavor to “write how I feel about the music ” seeing as I’m not a “real … Continue reading

It’s 2013..and I’m Missing the Hipster Apocalypse #SXSW

Almost a year has passed since @SXSW retweeted my first blog “Music Saved My Life…I Swear it Could Kill Me Though”. (I’m still not sure that it wasn’t a fluke!) Not much has changed. I’m still a college student, I still live in Minnesota, and, if you can’t tell from the title, I’m still a … Continue reading

The Groupie Moment First Edition: Featuring Stone Cruz

So for those of you who don’t know I’m starting a blog segment called “The Groupie Moment” where I rep the projects of the people I know and believe in. These projects don’t exclusively have to be musical, however, seeing as I know a lot of musicians most of them probably will be. This blog … Continue reading

The #Groupie Moment (It’s Not What it Sounds Like)

Admitting once and for all how bad I am at keeping up in the blog game. I was doing good at the consistency thing for awhile but then I went on vacation and I guess life just got in the way. The day after I flew back from Denver I had to move back to … Continue reading

Leather Jackets and Guitars Part 1 (What They Told me About Music School)

Since I started kicking it in the Twin Cities my life has been one crazy mashup of events. In the past year I’ve become a music business student, attended my first SXSW music festival and decided that maybe I want to give artist management a try. It’s been nothing like I expected but I wouldn’t … Continue reading

A Real Down to Mars Girl (What I Really Learned from Hip Hop)

Recently the world lost (Ms. Melodie) one of its less obvious treasures. Certainly in her death she has been recognized as Russell Simmons and many others have shared their love for the hip-hop trailblazer. But I still don’t think anyone can say the world respected her enough for what she brought to the genre.  Furthermore despite the … Continue reading

The Social Media Diet (Where is my Mind)

The last few days I’ve been trying to write the impact hip hop  had on my life and my high school days. And I promise that post is coming, but all I can think about is how self-centered I was back then. I know that probably doesn’t surprise any of you. A millennial with an ego … Continue reading

Going Hard with the #Hashtags (My Week on Twitter)

I went home this week. It hasn’t rained there in over a month and the temperature keeps lingering around 107 degrees. As a result I spent way too much time on Twitter.  We all know I’m capable of ranting about any of the subjects found under the #Discover tab but instead of writing fifty long … Continue reading

River’s Edge (What I Realized, Wayne Coyne & Salvador Dali Part 2)

As someone who’s been to Lolla and SXSW I’ve realized I always end up thinking four distinct things at music festivals People should seriously start drinking water BEFORE they pass out. When you’re my height (5’1 or 5’2) you don’t have to fight as hard to get close to the stage. The only time you … Continue reading
