SXSW 2016 (Friday): Willie Nelson’s party weathers the storm; CHVRCHES, Deftones rock SPIN showcase

Friday was a wild day for SXSW goers everywhere. The afternoon came and went without issue, but when the evening started rolling in, a nasty storm came along with it. All outdoor showcases were postponed and later shut down due to the weather. I myself was nowhere near Austin at the time, instead an hour […]

Bonnaroo 2016 — A lineup for everyone, a weird and true festival experience

Bonnaroo was one of the more eye-opening experiences of my life last year. While Coachella is much more commercialized and a lot more people there for the scene, Bonnaroo lives up to its reputation for “radiating positivity.” It was the perfect amount of weird I was looking for in a camping festival and I anticipated […]

Coachella 2016: finally moving away from being a boys’ club?

Last year, female-fronted acts represented less than 16% of the lineup with names like Florence + The Machine, Alabama Shakes, Jenny Lewis and St. Vincent being some […]

CHVRCHES radiate at Shrine Auditorium with tempestuous energy and shuddering synth movements

There’s something quite pious, or rather, divine, about Chvrches–and it’s not just because of their name. Lead singer and feisty frontwoman Lauren Mayberry may have the vocal chords of an angel, but what really pushes the Scottish trip into a realm of almost ethereal majesty is the overwhelming synth melodies that fuel their songs. Live, […]

Pitchfork Music Festival Day 1: Stand out performances by Wilco, Steve Gunn, iLoveMakonnen & more

Pitchfork (the media company, the brand, the behemoth) reminds me a lot of Coachella. Specifically: Most of the reasons people hate on it are totally valid, but after you accept all that; it’s still the dopest company in their field. Pitchfork Music Festival did not disappoint. The main issue with so many city-based festivals is that […]

CHVRCHES put on a PDA-inducing performance at the Hollywood Palladium

Depending on who is playing, a concert can be a difficult place to bring your struggling relationship. Friday night at the Hollywood Palladium, I saw first-hand the ramifications of this as a couple next to me went through a wide range of emotions during CHRVCHES‘ fantastic 13-song set. This show served one of the last two […]
