Passion Pit, Matt & Kim, and Icona Pop at The Orpheum

This had been a show I was excited for for some time. After seeing Passion Pit at Lollapalooza this past summer, I just knew I had to hit them up any time they came to Wisconsin. They could have had Nickelback and Creed as the two opening bands, and I still would have waited in […]

Every Time I Die, The Chariot, and Kills and Thrills at The Loft

I was stoked beyond belief when I saw that Every Time I Die was coming to Madison. A little surprised this show was at the Loft, but super excited regardless. They have been arguably my favorite ‘heavy’ band for the past several years, and since I skipped their set at Warped Tour when I went, […]

Lollapalooza 2012!

So this was the first year that I attended Lollapalooza, the annual music festival held in Grant Park in Chicago. From hearing things from people who have been there and watching videos of past performances on YouTube and Palladia, I couldn’t wait. I was trying not to wish summer by, but it was hard not […]

When the Summerfest lineup was released, one of the first things that caught my eye was Chevelle headlining the US Cellular stage. As an avid Summerfest goer, this has become my favorite stage… the headliners each night are usually a big name in the alternative scene, and all the openers tend to be up and […]

Pop Punk’s Not Dead Tour – Minneapolis

I was lucky enough to be able to attend the Minneapolis stop of the Pop Punks Not Dead tour. Months ago when the tour and lineup was announced, I thought to myself: Can a tour really get any better than this? Headlined by veteran pop punkers New Found Glory with support from 4 of the biggest […]

Billy Joel

Tribute to Mr. Billy Joel

Who can forget their first concert?  For many poor teeny boppers these days, it consists of the apple pie artists of their time, Jonas Brothers, Justin Beiber, Miley Cirus, or whatever other talentless, bubblegum crap that is out there. Not me.  My very first concert consisted of two legends.  The Piano Men.  Billy Joel and […]
