Governors Ball 2015 Lineup Announced; Drake Headlines

The East Coast’s Coachella, a more hipster-free music fest alternative…or more commonly known as NYC’s 3-day music affair, Governors Ball,–announced this June’s lineup this past week. Like the wilder Indio, CA festival, Drake is the headliner,–amongst some of the most obscure, wonderfully weird, and indie counterparts. Other notable attractions include Marina and the Diamonds, The…

Review: Fleetwood Mac Live at the Hartford XL

On Saturday, November 1st, the Hartford XL center fell under a spell…one of Fleetwood Mac, that is—and a kind that managed to reach the monster arena’s top tier, hexing even the nosebleed-seat occupants. The sold-out, 70s mystical-rock affair hosted Stevie Nick’s witchy enchantment (complete with dreamy twirls and gypsy garb), a so-youthful-it’s-creepy dose of Lindsey…

Song: “Hypnotized” Artist: Fleetwood Mac Album: Mystery to Me (1973) During no other time did Fleetwood Mac sink deeper into gloomy, mystical rock than the three-year period of lead singer Bob Welch’s membership.

Lauryn Hill & The Evaporation of the Female Rapper

Lauryn Hill’s breakthrough solo hip-hop album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, turns a whopping sixteen years old next week. Besides its 1998 Grammy Album of the Year-status, for a lot of 90s kids like myself, this album was a huge part of child-musichood. While most of us were too young to appreciate Fugees-era Lauryn, we were just…

Drake Puts the “Heart” Back in Hartford

Drake played at the Xfinity Theatre in Hartford last night…*sigh*…as well as someone else, whose first name starts with L and last rhymes with pain. I think that by now everyone knows of my Tunechi dislike, but I had to [somewhat] suppress it last night, seeing as at least half the crowd around me was…
