Duck Room On Fire: Hembree Steal Hearts & Blows Minds in St. Louis

I’m not one who listens to satellite radio (or really any type of radio for that matter), but I can respect what SiriusXM’s Alt Nation does with Advanced Placement, a tour and weekly radio show with the goal of exposing the public to on-the-rise alternative acts. The Advanced Placement Tour, which just wrapped up at the ...

Weathers beats the odds in Columbus, OH

Words by Ryan Getz, Photos by Kayla Kreller (BlazingChakrams Photography) Rumba Cafe has become somewhat of a habitual concert hangout spot for me. For me, shows at venues tend to come in waves. For a period of time, I'll see a bunch of shows in a row in a particular tiny venue, and in recent weeks it's been this place. ...

Sevendust Rock The Eclectic Room in Angola

Photo Gallery + Review: The Antlers’ Hospice Tour

Photos and words by Samantha Skapin Last week I got the chance to check out The Antlers play their album Hospice in full in the gorgeous Athenaeum Theatre. Between the dimly lit chandelier, the silence in the room, and the melancholy sounds of Hospice being played acoustic, it was impossible to get a shiver up your ...

St. Paul and the Broken Bones Bring Their Soul to St. Louis

Every time I see St. Paul & The Broken Bones live, it’s a religious experience. The Alabama-based soul band never fails to put on a spectacle. This past Friday was my third time (in the third different city) seeing the constantly-touring collective, and every show has been different from the last, with this most recent ...
