It‰'s a cold November morning, the time of year when it would still be dark on the bus ride to school. My normal group of neighborhood friends have either missed their buses or have been lovingly driven to school by their mothers; thus leaving me alone to ponder thoughts such as my newfound B cups,...

Set the scene: you‰'re at a high school party, feeling much cooler in the moment than you ever will looking back on it, when you look over and see someone you kind-of sort-of have a crush on flirting with someone else. Catastrophe. Pandemonium. Later when you go home, you put in your headphones and...

The emo scene is evolving. It used to be middle schoolers with jet black jagged hair writing Never Shout Never lyrics on their hands. In the early 2010s, it slid into bed with indie rock after a night of too many menthols and PBRs. Out popped greater. This new generation is just as sad and angry, but...

You are missing out if you haven‰'t heard of T-Rextasy. I remember the first time I listened to T-Rextasy: it was not at some house show or tiny venue pressed between other sweaty teens, or even a music recommendation from one of my friends. I was in the gym, working out to some random femme punk playlist...

My experience at Kid Cudi‰'s A Night of Passion, Pain, and Demon Slayin‰' show at Echostage on October 8 proved this idea true.

Contrary to its succinct, blunt definition on Urban Dictionary (made by someone named Keith in 2004), “Nayhoo‰” has nothing to do with being a “very uncool person of African American heritage.‰” I know, you‰'re scratching your head thinking “What is ‰nayhoo‰'?‰” Honestly, the bigger q...

Trashcan Sam: Sellout, rich boy, and the child of a diplomat. Those are the least “punk‰” sounding labels I have ever heard, so why bother with Mr.Mellor? Guy‰'s a hippie who had a punk phase. He couldn‰'t play guitar, so he literally changed his name to “Strummer‰Û. Years fly by, and he ...
