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.

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.

Lawrence and Joe Hertler bring the heat to a new Nashville venue!

Full disclosure: I work for the company that property manages the True Music Room and Bar in Nashville. Nonetheless, I feel compelled to write about this show. My company didn't tell me to do this. I'm definitely biased, but True Music Room is becoming one of my favorite places to hang out in Nashville! The room merges ...

90’s Kids are on their way

This past Friday night, I had the privilege of witnessing a key moment in the growth of a central Ohio band. 90's Kids are undeniably a pop group.
