Bucket List: Bands I Must See

blmfI’ve got a lot of live events and concerts under my belt, but some have outright escaped me for a variety of reasons. I’m mostly lucky in my concert going experience and I truly can’t think of an all around terrible experience I’ve had at a concert. Even if it started poorly, most of the time I’ve escaped with a pretty much amazing experience. But there are some bands that I’ve never gotten the chance to see that I’ve always wanted to feel the experience of seeing those artists live.

Listed below are the bands and artists that I must see before it’s all over. (more…)


Record Store Day 2014: Most Anticipated Releases

RSDCOM2010vectorLast year, I made a list of all of the Record Store Day Releases that I was most looking forward to which included some Prize Fighter Inferno, Coheed and Cambria, The Cure, Notorious B.I.G., Deftones, Blind Melon, Misfits/Lemonheads, Willie Nelson, and Patty Griffin, and while I didn’t get any of those other than the Coheed and Blind Melon/Misfits split, it was still a great experience and didn’t dull my excitement for this year. This year’s Record Store Day doesn’t have any releases that I absolutely must have, but it does have several that I’d like to get my hands on.

There are a great deal of records coming out this year for RSD. some hit or miss, but more awesome than not. If you want to check out the full list, you can go here because there’s no way I’m going over ever single one of them with you. So without further ado, let’s get into what I’m most looking forward to on Record Store Day 2014! (more…)

Weekly Spotify Playlist – Junior High Edition (1/29/2014)

First and foremost, I have no idea what other people were listening to when I was in junior high. It should be noted that I felt very different than my peers at the time, and going back to make this playlist, I can clearly see a huge reason why that might have been. Most of these songs are completely out of the norm, which, in retrospect, which makes sense and is pretty freaking hilarious. It might seem as though I made a lot of this up, but I tried to make this as accurate as I can remember.

This playlist represents a time in my life when I was approximately in the sixth grade until the ninth grade which was roughly 1995-1999, but I think I’m including some later stuff. The music here was a huge inspiration on who I am currently. If you’ve met me, or are somewhat familiar with my general tastes, this should make a whole lot of sense. Enjoy!
