Trading Life for Music with Hidden Hospitals

Posted on
Written by Dave Raymond of Hidden Hospitals

In my high school, for some mystical reason, our lunch periods started at 9:45 AM. So, one morning (at lunch) I sat at an empty table with Steve Mitchell. Steve had a bowl cut over his eyes, was incredibly quiet and had a gift for playing soccer. He wasn’t shy, he just didn’t say much. Making small talk  …

Meeting Knuckle Puck at Warped Tour

Written by Rory Shield

I would consider my first Warped Tour memorable for a bunch of reasons: I went by myself, I met and watched two of my favorite bands at the time, I almost passed out while seeing The Story So Far, it was the first New Orleans date in fifteen years, etc. That being said, the part that sticks out to me the most …

4 Stories from BADTALKERS

Written by the members of BADTALKERS
 There are a lot of aspects that go into discovering music. Whether you hear a song in passing, see a super cool album cover or have a friend recommend a new band or artist, you can’t deny that first impressions are important. So, when we heard LA-based indie/alt group BADTALKERS described as “if the Beastie Boys …

Sleep State & The Unifying Energy of Weezer

Written by Sleep State

In 2010, at the annual US Open of Surfing in Huntington Beach, I had the privilege of attending one of the best and most memorable concerts of my life. Seeing Weezer’s set, more than any other experience, has showed me just how much I was missing by not seeing live music performed more often.

Immediately upon arriving, I …
