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 (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

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

What I Realized, Wayne Coyne, and Salvador Dalí (Part 1)

Musicians are People Too (inspired by Letter to Emily White)

I’m not here to rehash the details or dredge up the debate on whether or not Lowery’s views are antiquated. Nor am I here … Continue reading

Rocking Austin

So I’m laying here sick in bed still mulling over my trip to Austin. Honestly it feels like a month since I got in a van with a band their manager, and their awesome ukulele-playing friend Savannah. The whole trip is still blur of rest stops, networking, music, night life, stress, street food, and laughter. … Continue reading

Make a Difference Starting at #SXSW

So my bags are packed and I’m ready to go, or  at least as ready as one can be for SXSW. The festival may have already started but my journey to Austin in a van with the band Pictures of Then begins tomorrow. Sitting here sending RSVP’s to various events I can’t help but think … Continue reading

Jump into the Fog (of Social Media)

With my trip to SXSW fast approaching I thought I’d take a few minutes to talk about social media and an app I’ve recently started using. These days it seems like everyone is trying to make it in the music industry, either as artists, producers, journalists, or business people. Of course my view of the … Continue reading
