Holding Up John Feldmann of Goldfinger

Posted on

Written by Connor Skelly

I think this was in 2012. Toad’s Place in New Haven, Connecticut was having a Ska Fest. The lineup included Big D & The Kids Table, Goldfinger, and Reel Big Fish. I was stoked to find myself in the front row, at the barricade (yup, that happened.)

Big D killed it, especially just after coming back from a bout of …

Meeting Marianas Trench at the Mall

Written by Stephanie Pierce

Over the summer my favourite band Marianas Trench played a show really close to my home for Canada’s 150th birthday (it was even free), so of course I was going to go- I had already seen them seven times!

On Stage With Sum 41

If you are as socially awkward as I am, then the idea of being put front and center of a sold-out arena crowd is one hell of a terrifying thought. Now, this situation doesn’t seem likely to happen in everyday life but if your second home is at the barricade, then it’s totally plausible. How do I know this? Because it happened to me and I literally …
