Rivers Cuomo at Beat Kitchen 4/10/18

For the majority of their career, I never considered myself a Weezer fan. I liked them well enough, but they were never a go-to for me. At the time when they first started getting popular I was in 8th grade and I have a memory of sitting at the lunch table with my friends singing “Buddy Holly” after that music video hit the airwaves of … Continue reading Rivers Cuomo at Beat Kitchen 4/10/18

So, when Owens announced that he was working on a solo record to … Continue reading Christopher Owens-Lysandre

Ezra Furman-The Year Of No Returning

His last album, Mysterious Power was one of my favorites last year. Ezra has the passion that I find lacking in acts like Bon Iver, and I … Continue reading Ezra Furman-The Year Of No Returning
