Cleveland, Ohio was the sixth stop for headliner Echosmith and special guests Weathers and Jayden Bartels on their 2020 expedition, ‘The Lonely Generation Tour’. As someone who saw Echosmith as an opening band on the 2015 ‘Blurryface Tour’, I knew to expect one thing: a pink umbrella. But let me start from the beginning. The […]

In case you missed it: In honor of the annual treasure that is International Clash Day (Feb. 7, 2020) Black Squirrel Radio hosted a live performance event at Grafton Correctional Institute.

The Columbus duo released the third addition to the “Location Session” singles on Oct. 17, after several short audio clips surfaced online the night before. The remix features […]

Those who frequently attend concerts know the pain of camping culture. You know that huge line, wrapped around the building, around the block and into the parking lot three streets over? Yeah, the people at the first 1/3 of the line are who I’m talking about. The ones with tents, sleeping bags and trash littered […]

Title: A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships Artist: The 1975 Label: Dirty Hit Records Release Date: November 30, 2018 Rating:         The first time I listened to The 1975’s new album, “A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships”, I was extremely disappointed. Following the massive success of their second album, the band had a lot […]

Title: Glory Sound Prep Artist: Jon Bellion Label: Capitol Records Release Date: November 9, 2018 Rating:         One thing’s for sure, Jon Bellion hasn’t lost his sound. That’d be too hard to do.
