As promised! This week’s new music discovery is Morning In May. They’ll be on tour with Chin Up, Kid this fall. I mentioned on Wednesday that I’d be writing about them today. So here it is!
I can’t believe it’s almost the end of Warped Tour! This has been such an amazing series to write. I am going to do a Warped Wind-Down next week. The following week I need to start a new series, so leave me some ideas in the comments!
This week’s featured bands are Valient Thorr and War On Women.
I’m also going to spend some time talking about this awesome group of people that War On Women brought along for the ride. They are called Safer Scenes.
Wednesday is my favorite day of the week! I love sharing my favorite local bands with you guys. Today’s featured band is Chin Up, Kid, from Indianapolis, Indiana. Continue reading “Chin Up, Kid”
On Thursday, my friends in Bathroom of the Future celebrated the birthday of their bassist, Sean, by performing a show with Complainer. and Damnsel. It was awesome. My ears were ringing for two days. Read on to learn about the bands and my favorite local venue.
It’s Wednesday! Which means time for a new band feature. Yay!
First: a story. I keep a planner with my articles planned out for the next several months. The only bands I write down after I’ve already posted, are the bands in my Sunday series, Bands I Discovered This Week. Now, imagine my surprise when I went to write down Alone I Walk, only to see that this week’s scheduled featured was another Canadian band. I guess, Canadians are alright.
Now, read on for this week’s featured band, Across The Wasteland.
I’m sure you guys remember how Warped Fridays work. Today’s featured band is Streetlight Manifesto. I picked them for today’s article because they are only playing one show on the whole tour and it is tomorrow’s in Salt Lake City, Utah. I know, I’m blatantly ignoring my criteria of featured bands playing the majority of the tour. However, I could not resist the chance to tell you guys about how awesome this band is.
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.
