Newport Folk Festival 2018 – The Full Guide

This year marks the 53rd year of the prestigious Newport Folk Festival (July 27th to 29th), which every music lover must attend at least once in their life.

First Impressions: Courtney Barnett – ‘Tell Me How You Really Feel’ (album review)

First Impressions: Courtney Barnett – ‘Tell Me How You Really Feel’ (album review)

Fortress Festival 2018 Review

Fortress Fest 2018 returned to Fort Worth’s cultural district last weekend, building upon and developing its previous year’s performance. Re-mapping of the festival grounds was the most noticeable improvement. Last year, the two stages were too far apart, forcing concertgoers to make a tedious back and forth walk from Will Rogers to the Modern Art Museum. The festival this year […]
