Thoughts on Albums: Behemoth ~ Evangelion

Sometimes an album comes along at just the right time, and everything clicks. For me, Behemoth’s Evangelion sounds like how I feel right now. So I’ve been listening to it on repeat since I ‘obtained’ it last week. Don’t worry, I’ve already ordered my autographed copy. There are many typical metal review words that could […]

Bonded by Blood: Disruption in the Live Music Industry

I’ve crossed over some of my “real” work and my “fun” work here before with my “I’m Your Biggest Fan” series, and I can’t help myself from doing it again with some thoughts that have been banging around my head since this whole pandemic started.

HardRockChick: 2007-2015

From Joan Jett to Jimmy Page, it is time to close the doors on this 8 year adventure. In it’s simplest form, it was a blog about going to see live music. At it’s most complex, it was about my life through the lens of live music. It captured the feeling of being at nearly […]
