Concert Review + Photo Gallery: Phoebe Bridgers Reunion Tour

Words and Photos by Samantha Skapin It was chilly fall night in Cleveland, the perfect setting for the Phoebe Bridgers Reunion tour to roll through and finish off September on a sweet, melancholy note.   What I love most about shows being back after almost a two-year hiatus is seeing bands finally ...

Furnace Fest 2021 reflection

Ninety* bands, three days, three stages. Twenty years of nostalgia. Two years since my last music festival. I couldn’t let a fourteen-hour drive keep me from what promised to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Nearly every band that formed my musical tastes throughout my life were on the line up (barring ...

Fox Royale and Friends Come to Green Bay (Indie Pop Show Recap)

I've somehow never been to the Lyric Room in Green Bay. I didn't get involved in "the scene" until after college and that meant a handful of dive bars around where I was living at the time.

A review of the Underoath Observatory – Lost in the Sound of Separation

Some bands postponed dates while others cancelled whole tours. Anberlin were set to embark on a tour beginning July 10th but were forced to ...

Brother Moses cap tour run with a fun, no-frills night of rock in Indianapolis

Ever see a band live for what you thought was the first time, only to find out after the show that they had opened for another act you saw in the very same room less than a year prior? In all fairness I missed the vast majority of Brother Moses’ set when they supported Knox Hamilton last March, so this final date of their ...

Bonelang turns up the heat alongside an all-star Columbus lineup

Arguably one of my most anticipated shows of this winter was the trifecta of Bonelang, label me lecter, and Of Two Minds at Rumba Cafe. Bonelang's set was as fun as it always is. This was my fourth time seeing them live: the first being at Skully's opening for Vesperteen and Damn the Witch Siren, the second being ...
