Sonic Youth is my favorite rock band. I have loved them for over a decade, own almost their entire discography in at least one format and credit them for introducing me to experimental music.

On September 27th, Foster the People (FtP) took over The Fillmore for an electric and mesmerizing show. You may believe that they are just another boring indie band but let me explain why their concert is receiving my highest praise.

As campus urged our evacuation I found myself thankfully out of harm’s way in Atlanta and coincidentally found myself home for one of the city’s biggest weekend in live music. With an impressive and diverse lineup that matched the city’s melting pot of tastes, I was impossible to see everyone I wanted, but here are the highlights of the performances I was able to catch.… Read More
