Live Review: The Head and the Heart at the Palace Theatre (Columbus, OH)

Review by Ray Cobra; Photo by Vince Aung I am one of those folks that believe there aren't too many things in this world better than live music. Over the last 5 years, I have averaged 120 concerts a year and I see no signs of slowing down. There is something about live music that just makes life a little better and I'm ...

liily wash away any doubts with their raw live show

I’ve been fascinated with Los Angeles natives LIILY and their raw, unbridled blend of rock and roll ever since I first heard their inaugural single “Toro” a little over a year ago, but until just recently, I wasn’t completely sure how that sort of rawness would translate in person.

Badflower and company bring the sickness to Indianapolis

Badflower is a band I’ve been following from a distance ever since hearing their song “Soap” some three and a half years ago. In that relatively short span of time, the Los Angeles natives have gone from being an opening act for fellow rockers in clubs around the country to headlining many of those same clubs. ...
