Riot Fest Day 1 (Chicago. September 13, 2013)


Big festivals are a completely different animal from what is usually covered by this site. Granted, many of the acts I covered last weekend are typical of what you’d see in an individual post, to have them all in one festival is pretty special. So it’s no surprise that the music scene basically exploded when the Riot Fest Chicago lineup was announced.

To Write Love On Her Arms’ “Heavy and Light” Tour (HOB, Anaheim. January 28, 2013)

Martin Johnson 007

Thanks to a $1 Million grant awarded to them last year, non-profit To Write Love On Her Arms was able to take their annual show “Heavy and Light” on the road. What was once confined to TWLOHA’s home base in Florida, “Heavy and Light” brought out artists willing to speak candidly about personal issues that often get swept under the rug.

Expire 026

“Free” is good. “Free” is even better when it involves great bands putting on awesome performances to a packed up Glasshouse. Saturday was filled with heavy music and kids of all ages enjoying an early show and escaping the latest SoCal heatwave. I overheard some of the Scion folks say that this show was the most that they’ve ever had RSVPs for online. With the bands on the bill, you can’t really say you’re surprised.

Vinnie Caruana (CDA-Redux. May 11, 2012)

Vinnie Caruana 001

First off, that name is UNOFFICIAL… but I needed to add some kind of venue name. My good friends Felicia and Carly moved to a new spot. While it was tough saying farewell to the good old Casa de Avalanche and all its crazy memories (click the link if you don’t know what I’m alluding to), a new home means new stories to tell.
