SXSW 2016 (Saturday): HINDS, Diet Cig, Formation make up for line-wasting time

The one big drawback of SXSW is that you could potentially wait in a line for three or more hours for a really hyped event, think you’re going to get in, and then get royally effed over and left in the cold. This is what happened to me on my last day of SXSW 2016 […]

Zac Brown Band, Counting Crows, Spoon, The Roots highlight wide array of musical offerings at KAABOO Day 2

Day two of KAABOO Del Mar featured a diverse string of musical acts, from rock to hip-hop to electronic.

“Yo Gabba Gabba! Music Is Awesome!” Cool Music, For Cool Kids.

Want cool music for your kiddies? And no I’m not talking about Karen O’s “All is Love” for “Where The Wild Things Are.” Although I absolutely adore that song.

"Bible Belt" by Diane Birch – Album Review

“Bible Belt” by Diane Birch – The daughter of a preacher, this singer-songwriter has quite the lovely voice but I’m just not feeling it.
