A take on the State of the Music Industry

With the advent of the Internet, it is interesting to note that popular music will be controlled more and more by the masses and less by record labels and radio stations. This is a great thing for music and because of the internet, I foresee a more honest future in the production and distribution of […]

Wasted Wednesday

If you haven’t heard Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines you must live under a rock. Whether its quietly jamming out at work or getting ready for a night out, we’re listening on repeat. Thicke is known in the music world for his smooth and soulful R&B beats. He has been nominated for best artist, best album […]

Vampire Weekend @ Firefly

Deeply in sync as a group, they played all of the favorites “Open Up’ “Two Coins” “Bats in the Belfry” and […]

Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers @ Firefly

Tom Petty and the heartbreakers stepped up in a big way on Saturday night, closing the second day of the festival on the main stage. Decades of touring and records have not taken their toll as they submitted a very groovy set. All of the classics with “Running Down a Dream” “Last Dace with Mary […]

Japandroids @ Firefly

I was running late but literally ran over when I heard them start playing “Young Hearts Spark Fire” my personal favourite of theirs. Great stage presence from start to finish, guys […]

Red Hot Chili Peppers @ Firefly

Words cannot describe the amount of love that I have for this band. Last night’s set was one of the most majestic musical experiences of my life. A bright shining stage within the Delaware woods was a scene wrought out of imagination and fantasy. The energy delivered throughout the performance made one forget that these […]
