For this week’s Sunday series, I’m doing a special Warped edition. I’m going to share four bands I discovered at Warped Tour. Spoiler alert: only one of them was actually playing when I discovered them. The four artists are: Stevie Frank, Pickwick Commons, Spar Afar, and Separations.
Hello! You guys are in for a special treat today. The idea behind my Monday series is not a new one, but this is the first time I’ve been able to utilize it. On applicable Mondays, I’ll be writing about shows that I saw live in the past week.
Naturally, I’ve started with a real doozy. This past weekend I was lucky enough to participate in the Folk In The Woods festival in Jeddo, Michigan. Folk In The Woods takes place on an herb farm and is hosted by Connie and Sean, as always, they were amazing.
I couldn’t possibly feature every performer from the weekend. However, there are several bands that I am featuring, so read on below the cut! Continue reading “Folk In The Woods”
OK, I know it’s Tuesday. I didn’t get to write this post earlier, because I had to work surprise!doubles two days in a row, when nobody showed up to replace me. Yayyyyyy!
Luckily, I did have time to discover some new music before my work life got hectic.
Last week’s new discoveries are Rival Island and Awaken I Am. Continue reading “New Music Sunday”
Today, I’m going to be talking about the Baltimore, Maryland based Dreamcatcher. I’ve been listening to these guys since November 2016, and they are amazing. They play a version of alternative pop that can only be described as otherworldly. Continue reading “Wonderlust”
My Sunday series is going to feature bands that I just discovered this week. I’ve been writing this blog longer than I’ve been listening to these bands. I’m constantly looking for new bands, so leave some recommendations in the comments!
I primarily discover bands through Instagram. I use the hashtag #supportlocalmusic a lot, and small bands will like my pictures because of it. When a band, or a member of a band likes my picture or follows me, I will always at least check them out. I don’t always like it, but I will sit through at least one entire song. If they are on Spotify, I usually go for the most played.
I also find recommendations through people on this blog, and people in my everyday life. My co-workers know that my life revolves around music, and if they hear a new band they always pass it along to me.
This week’s featured bands are Romance & Rebellion, The Ballroom Thieves, and Chaplin.
