In 2022, the word “vibes” has become a beaten to death buzzword that will be used to loosely define whatever feeling you can associate it with.

Elle King graced Minneapolis this past Saturday at The Fillmore. The performance was a breath of fresh air, quite literally as for the first time I was pleasantly surprised that c19 precautions were only recommended, as local guidelines no longer require negative c19 test and/or vaccination for entry.

Ive heard of Caamp, on the radio, spotify playlists, and they’ve become a familiar name on quite a few festival posters as well, including this past year’s Hinterland festival in Iowa.

Tonight, Madison Cunningham finally got the respect and headlining show she deserves in St. Paul.  In past shows where Madison Cunningham has opened at the Palace Theatre, iv’e made note of the noise level from the audience during the show, oftentimes drowning out her singing during slower numbers.

As I meandered through the crowd as Wilco began their set on the second of 3 shows this weekend, I began to smell the familiar scent of a fall bonfire. It was a mixture of pine, burning leaves, and birch. I thought it was odd that at a venue like this, where I typically am […]
