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.

The O’Mys at Park West 9/28/18

Mourn at Empty Bottle

Catalonian quartet MOURN stormed onto the scene in 2014 with their self-titled debut – a work of angular indie rock and pointed lyricism delivered with confidence well beyond their teenage years. Two years later, they returned with the equally superb Ha, Ha, He. and proved themselves worthy of the early praise, squashing any remaining questions of fleeting hype. But with seemingly endless opportunities in front … Continue reading Mourn at Empty Bottle
