Vibe Fusion: Polaroid Panda

Whenever I attend a show and listen to any band, naturally I know what genre I am expecting to hear. It should be common sense right? Usually, but not this time. Polaroid Panda is odd, but unique when it comes to their flavor profile of music. Their style can't be placed in a box or … Continue reading Vibe Fusion: Polaroid Panda

Devil’s Den State Park

If I wanted to go on an adventure into the woods, this natural park has always been one of my favorites. I've heard about this place frequently growing up when family members would retell of their visit. Since then, I had always wondered if it was as great as people described it. Devil's Den State … Continue reading Devil’s Den State Park

Blink-182: Arkansas Music Pavilion

It was a cold day in April three years ago when I saw Blink-182 perform at the Arkansas Music Pavilion (AMP) with one of my best friends. They were on tour with their newest album California, but showcased nostalgic songs from their top 3 albums: Enema of the State, Take off Your Pants and Jacket, … Continue reading Blink-182: Arkansas Music Pavilion

Rachel B Table for Three

To see Rachel B Table for Three put on a show is as if being transported to a 1920s speakeasy, but the aesthetic of the band is Grease merged with country rock. This musical couple is only two of the five members of this ensemble, but their rockabilly American roots style music has the ability … Continue reading Rachel B Table for Three

Tears of Poseidon

So, I hope all of you are ready for a band that is alternative and unconventional at the core: Tears of Poseidon. Usually I never get to witness a brand new band perform one of their first gigs, so this was an interesting experience. The show I saw marks their 2nd performance in public to … Continue reading Tears of Poseidon

21c Museum Hotel Bentonville

Over three years ago, my friend Callie Edwards introduced me to an amazing art museum and hotel in Bentonville, AR. I am always intrigued getting introduced to new and interesting "brain drain" destinations because it reveals that there is more in this world than meets the eye. 21c Museum Hotel is definitely one of those … Continue reading 21c Museum Hotel Bentonville

Erin Detherage aka “Dr. Shred”

The last place I expected to spend Samhain/Halloween night was at Tequila Grill in Elkins, AR. I didn't know this restaurant was ever utilized as a music venue at all. As always, I love seeking out new and interesting scenes, but this artist caught my eye immediately due to the nickname "Dr. Shred." Deep down, … Continue reading Erin Detherage aka “Dr. Shred”

The Mix Tapes

Do you want to relive what it was like listening to the radio in the 90s? This 90's-alternative cover band based out of Springfield, Missouri is full of raw energy and performing spirit. Watching the female lead singer multitask playing 2 different keyboards, various guitars, accordion and hearing her vocal range is an experience all … Continue reading The Mix Tapes

“Coming on Up” with Henry Invisible

Last weekend I got my brain drained to this up and coming, bound for fame funk musician. The most accurate way I know how to describe what I heard is if Elton John, Prince, & Daft Punk all had a baby and birthed forth the music of Henry Invisible. If you have not heard of … Continue reading “Coming on Up” with Henry Invisible

Simeon Basil

When I was at the Six Twelve Coffeehouse & Bar the night before, I randomly met this woman named Christie Walker. It was because of her recommending me to come back to this venue to listen to Simeon Basil (@simeonbasilmusic) that I had the opportunity to engage in an interview with him. How would you … Continue reading Simeon Basil
