Noah Cyrus at House Of Blues 10/7/18

I hadn’t heard of Noah Cyrus until a couple months ago when she popped up on my Spotify Discover playlist. I don’t remember which song it was, but I thought it was fine, nothing special. Then last month she released a single with Gallant from her Good Cry EP that I found to be really good.

Plain White T’s In-Store At Reckless Records 8/24/18

I wasn’t sure what to expect walking in to Reckless Records on a Friday night for an in-store performance by Plain White T’s. On the one hand it’s a local band who’ve made a name for themselves on a national level. On the other hand that was a while ago and the shine has worn off for the most part. The reality was was what … Continue reading Plain White T’s In-Store At Reckless Records 8/24/18
