Tell Me How You Really Feel, Seriously. Just a few short weeks ago, Courtney Barnett dropped a very relatable album entitled, Tell me how you really feel. I had the immense pleasure of capturing her prior to that album release at Union Transfer along with a sold-out crowd. The set list was a bit […]Read More We really feel like you need to see Courtney Barnett on tour now!!!!
Okay music fans, this is one tour you cannot miss. Every once in a while I find a band I really can’t help but tell everyone about. One of those bands for me is Years & Years. I was hooked after hearing their first single, and during a trip to England last year, I found […]Read More Show Review: Tei Shi and Years & Years at Union Transfer!!
I was lucky enough to go to Made in America Festival in Philadelphia both days this past weekend, needless to say I am still recovering (and missing the fun!). I went as a music fan Day 1 (which is all a blur of sweat, dance, and good times), and I covered Day 2 for Elite […]Read More mylifeinsound at Made in America Day 2!! Photos + Review
My friends already think know I am a psycho when it comes to music I love. Not having someone to go to a show with? No problem, I’m going anyway. They are only playing 2 hours away in NYC on a work night? No problem, I’m going anyway. Pretty sure over the past 2 weeks […]Read More myweekinsound xx: Update #1 ft. M83, and new music from Sun Airway!!!

The M83 show at Union Transfer last night sold out months ago when they went on sale…within 7 minutes. I couldn’t wait to see them live for the first time with my roommate who got a […]Read More gig photos xx: M83 at Union Transfer last night!!!
Well, we all can’t be too sad if we’re not at Coachella. Considering I did have the chance to see one of my favorite bands playing Coachella today three times in 2 weeks: twice at SXSW in Texas and once in Philly the next week when I got back. Band Of Skulls are not only […]Read More gig photos xx: Band Of Skulls at Union Transfer!!
This weekend I made a long overdue, last minute trip to visit some dear friends in Boston. It has been such an incredible, fun and relaxing weekend. Tonight I am going to see Porcelain Raft and Smith Westerns play Paradise Rock and I couldn’t be more excited. This is going to be such an epic […]Read More Boston show NOT to be missed xx: Porcelain Raft and Smith Westerns at Paradise Rock TONIGHT!!
This year, I was able to see one of my favorite artists, Dirty Beaches, live three times: twice in Philly and once in NY. Seeing him at Glasslands in Brooklyn, NY with my best friends was incredible, and I have gig photos to prove it. I love taking photos at shows because you can really […]Read More gig photos xx: Dirty Beaches at Glasslands in Brooklyn, NY
Disappears are one of my favorite bands, and they’ve had a huge year! They released their album “Guider” (which completely rocks), toured the US, and played Lollapalooza this summer as well as an after party with Arctic Monkeys. They also just announced their new record is mastered!! Disappears are from Chicago and will be playing […]Read More in their own words xx: an interview with Disappears
