B.A.P 2016 Live On Earth, SF

WHO IS B.A.P? The super short and brief explanation (mainly only on their concert activities). B.A.P (Best Absolute Perfect) debuted in January 2012.

A year after their debut, B.A.P had two concerts: Pacific World Tour in 2013 and Live On Earth … [Continue Reading...]

April Fools Day

Truthfully, I was never one to pay much attention to April fools day. It is not a day I dread, fearing lame jokes or hoax announcements from various companies. Nor do I look forward to the day like Spongebob. Some of the announcements are absolutely ridiculous. For example, this year Duolingo, a free language learning site, announced a language learning pillow that promises to teach you a language as you sleep. That would be fantastic if it were real. Some companies announce sequels to their … [Continue Reading...]

Album Review: Tacocat – Lost Time

At first glance, Tacocat seems like a very innocuous thing. The four-piece band’s name comes across as disarming and playful with sunny instrumentation to match. Yet, to overlook the depth of Tacocat’s music, their “bubblegum rock,” is to do the band a disservice. “Lost Time,” an album made up of 12 poignant looks at life, picks up where Tacocat last left off in every regard. The instrumentation on “Lost Time” feels largely similar to the band’s last album, “NVM,” it’s the writing that … [Continue Reading...]

Baseball is in the air

It's the time of year for baseball!  Spring training has been going on for a few weeks and I am very excited to what this baseball season has in store.

I saw a Rivercats game last year and I had a lot of fun, and I hope … [Continue Reading...]

Album Review: Ty Segall – Emotional Mugger

At this point in his career the only thing more wild than Ty Segall’s output, this being Segall’s 16th album in eight years, are the touring personas he has adopted for his new album, “Emotional Mugger.” Segall keeps in character throughout all … [Read More...]

Anvil

Album Review: Anvil – Anvil is Anvil

Anvil is Anvil is the final ballad from a sinking ship we call Earth and if we don’t change our tune it will mean our imminent doom. If you needed a soundtrack to a tough-guy pirate cartoon in the same vein as Disney Channel’s Dave the Barbarian, … [Read More...]
