Vans Warped Tour 2017

I’m always amazed at how the festival organizers are able to setup an intricate layout of merchandise booths, stages and equipment in a short amount of time, only to tear it all down and do it all over again the following day. However, the Vans Warped Tour is the largest and longest running festival in North America and has been chugging along smoothly for...

LambStonE - Hunters & Queens

Lambstone is a Milanese five-piece that plays a bit of a more metallized alt-rock in the vein of Nickelback and similar bands on their debut. Compared to the “generic” Canadians, they are a tiny bit more inspired and somewhat heavier but still not without issues as Alex Di Bello’s voice seems to tremble a bit in a bit of what feels like an...

Nickelback - Feed the Machine

Imagine the illegitimate child of Metallica and Bon Jovi, corporate safe rock, with just enough “edge” to sound “real” appealing to millennials and yuppies, perfecting the homogenized “rock” to the point where Creed left up.   Samey riffs, Kroegers annoying croon a production that’s good, but “plastic”...
