I hate the feeling of sickness creeping in. And since I always have a million things to do, I always choose to ignore it. I pulled into the neighborhood of Backstage Live and decided to skip some of the openers in lieu of resting in the car. Two hours later I peeled myself out of […]

Lucky Girl: Rival Sons @ Harvard & Stone, 5/5/11

For the last 9 months, my life has been in transition. I’ve had no real home, and have been far away from my friends and my music and anything I like to do, really. Every show is a 3 hour round trip drive or a flight; therefore everything has been done under a different level […]
