Remember when you were 14 and watched The Perks of Being a Wallflower for the first time and thought it was the most profound piece of art that you’ve ever seen in your life? Remember when Emma Watson dangerously stuck her head out of the sun roof while “Heroes” by David Bowie was playing? It’s...

If there’s any shared consensus between the disputing voices in my head, it’s that I grew up lost. In a lot of ways I felt as though I had been born lost because answers weren’t ever immediately accessible. The inherent problem that comes with being non-binary is that I wasn’t even given this...

Cat Power - Wanderer (2018) Genre: Folk, blues, indie rock Verdict: An album as personal as a whisper. In 2006, when Atlanta-based singer/songwriter Chan Marshall aka Cat Power released her album “The Greatest,” she wasn’t lying by calling herself that. I find it hard to put Cat Power with th...

SXSW is several things rolled into one: music festival, large networking event, tech-forward conference and, as some might say, a “shit-show”. This year’s SXSW, held in Austin, TX from Mar. 8-17, featured new artists on official stages as well as familiar faces on unofficial stages. This conf...

When I was in elementary school I decided to do band along with chorus. This was a big step for a kid who only had started practicing karate for literally no reason other than to share some something with Sandy Cheeks from SpongeBob. Band was different though.  I didn’t have the mindset for extracurricular activ...

Genre is dead, and I say “good riddance!” Or at least that’s the popular opinion. In music journalism today, it’s regarded as an absolutely white-hot take to say that genre is a goner. Look at Medium, The Guardian, Pitchfork, even the New York Times, and you’ll find similar articles: “Death...

Last Tuesday night, legendary rock band Fleetwood Mac took the stage at the Capital One Arena for a sold-out show. Decent seats were selling for $200+ apiece, but that did nothing to deter people from coming out in droves, many of whom drove several hours into D.C. to experience “An Evening with Fleetwood...

The most cliché answer to the question “what kind of music do you like?” that a person can think of is probably, “anything except rap or country.” The former is ridiculous of a multitude of reasons, and may be rooted into some sort of implicit, unexamined racism while the latter offers the ...
