    Mad Caddies » Keep It Going in Tempe [Club Red]

    Mad Caddies» Last Sunday I was blessed to see the Mad Caddies play live after a 5-year hiatus from AZ. With a new album due in a month and Tempe wrapping up the first half of their Spring tour, I couldn’t begin to explain my levels of excitement. After all, this is the band that got me into ska music so many moons ago. If you haven’t listened to, checked out or even heard of Mad Caddies, get to…

    Bastille >> Commodore Ballroom

    My friend and I had been big fans of their music for a while now and we were so excited to see them perform live. I always worry when bands are hyped up too much because an unfortunate number of them fall short of expectations when I actually see them live. Man, I…

    Dum Dum Girls » Coming Down in Vancouver [Biltmore Cabaret]

    Dum Dum Girls» headlined a fantastic show at the Biltmore Cabaret on Friday night to a welcoming, Pabst-sipping hipster crowd. A couple of people I talked to were not particularly familiar with Dum Dum Girls’ music and some had not even heard of their opening act, Blouse. Nonetheless, people were unwinding from a long week and were excited to discover some awesome new music. What better place to…

    ODESZA » My Friends Never Die in Phoenix [Rhythm Room]

    ODESZA» the duo from Seattle played a sold out show at The Rhythm Room this past April Fool’s Day. For my first review, I was very excited for this performance. In case you’ve never been, The Rhythm Room is a smaller spot near downtown Phoenix and a really cool little venue [they dropped ‘Oblivion’ by Grimes between sets…priceless] allowing for a more intimate evening which really made…

    DATSIK » Drops the Dream in San Francisco [Regency Ballroom]

    DATSIK» Music genres go through a similar cycle each time they are ‘pioneered’. There is always a beginning – with someone, somewhere. The genre lives in obscurity. It cultivates a feverishly loyal but small fan base. The music sounds ‘new’, it is uninhibited and its sound is driven purely by what the artist/community thinks is good.
