A funny thing about mosh pits: the people in the middle of them are the nicest people you’ll ever meet in your life. I bent down to tie my shoe, and people made sure I wasn’t trampled and then applauded my freshly-tied sneakers. The only downside is that I was unable to take any videos,…

Childish-Gambino2

I apologize that I’m a little late in actually posting this, but I’ve had a lot of homework (NOTE: I’m debunking the myth that high school is easier than college… It’s not).

King Kendrick brought his talents to Nashville’s War Memorial Auditorium and he put on a show that everyone will remember. Ever since good kid, m.A.A.d. city was released, I have been listening to Kendrick with my friends non-stop.

Guest Review: Eli Young Band at Emory University

In my short time at Emory University in Georgia, I have seen a diverse group of musical acts. Macklemore, Cazzette, Slightly Stoopid, and Hoodie Allen have all made stops either on, or near campus. However, no one act has been quite as good live as The Eli Young Band, a country group based out of…
