Below you can find my review for the Flipside Festival, which took place on Sunday, May 7th.
Show ReviewFirst off, let me state how I’m a complete and utter moron for originally typing this up in AP, instead of Word, and hitting submit only to watch the page not load correctly and me lose everything I took an hour and a half typing. Yes, I’m incredibly stupid and should kick myself in the genitals. Anyway, before I frustrate myself even more, let’s move on and get to the point.

If you live in the DC/MD/VA metropolitan area, then the Flipside Festival is the perfect alternative to the Bamboozle Festival. Both festivals take place on the same weekend, the first one in May, and the...

Below you can find my review for Taking Back Sunday's show at The Norva in Norfolk, VA, which took place this past Friday, April 21st.
Show ReviewThere are certain bands I have to see any oppurtunity I get. Sometimes it's because there's such a personal connection with the music, and other times it's because they simply put on a stunning live show. Both can be said of Taking Back Sunday. My latest experience of seeing them perform, just like their new album, has raised the bar and molded a whole new opinion for me of the band. This past Friday marked my 8th or 9th time seeing the band onstage and it would go down as their best set that my eyes have seen yet.

After I trek down I-95...

Below you can find my review for Brand New's first show in about two years that took place this past weekend -- Saturday, April 15th to be exact -- at UVA.
Brand New Show ReviewI think it's safe to say Brand New has a lot of people on the edge of their seat. Last summer they launched a "new" website that was to serve as a means to update the fans on their studio and recording happenings; however, there wasn't much updating (aside from Ray Bradbury quotes). The time just kept passing with no word on what was going on, how far along they were with the new album ... nothing. Then a couple months back certain songs (those that we're not to speak of) surfaced and then shortly after there...

Since there were so many reviews posted today, Darren and I thought it would be best if we just put all of them in one post so it's easier to find/less clutter at the top of the page. Also, do you think it was good to have this many reviews in one day or would it have been better to spread them out throughout the week?

Here is my review for Taking Back Sunday's new album, Louder Now, which will hit shelves on April 25th. Only once in awhile do I write reviews; so if I do, that means I'm really passionate about the record and want to make sure I convey that to our readers. It may be lengthy, but I had a lot to say, especially for the people eager for this release. Enjoy!

Sorry I'm a day late with this, but I have a lot going on "behind-the-scenes" so I'm juggling quite a few things. Anyway, below you'll find my review for the Motion City Soundtrack show that took place this past Sunday, March 19th at the 9:30 Club in Washington, DC. The Format, The Matches, and Men Women & Children were on the bill as well.
Show ReviewSo, the first thing I noticed when this tour was announced was the diversity of style, sound, type of music, etc. among the support bands. The first leg had OK Go, Plain White Ts, and The Spill Canvas where the second leg had the bands listed above, Now, in my opinion, the second leg is much better; however, I respect the planning of...
