Welcome to the ILYIT Tour, brought to you by grandson

As much as I love going the distance (literally) for my favorite artists, I was so relieved to see that grandson was bringing his ILYIT tour to Albany's Empire Underground. This summer marked my fourth time seeing grandson live–and if I’m honest, he simply keeps getting better and better. From intimate picnicky acoustic sets to massive state fair stages and every size club in between, there isn’t a single environment where grandson’s music doesn’t fit.  With the European leg of this tour currently underway, I figured now might be a good time to talk a bit about what to expect from a grandson gig. “This is our first-ever concert in Albany…”  Before we get into the details about this particular stop on the ILYIT tour, I want to address a very good point that grandson made...

Welcome to the Church of Saint Slumber.

Welcome to the Church of Saint Slumber.

Last month, I had the absolute pleasure of attending the Malibu x Saint Slumber x Moonroof live show in Philly. Needless to say, it was an incredible time. To tell you the truth, I was only familiar with one band going in: Saint Slumber. I've been following them since 2020. And by following, I mean that they haven't left my "On Repeats" since November 14, 2020. I had never seen them live before, but they topped my concert bucket list. So I was pretty excited for this one, folks. I was almost nervous-- how do you prepare for a show that's got YEARS of anticipation behind it? And on their end, having been away from the stage for over 800 days-- how can a band meet fan expectations after all this time? But the only question I had leaving Philadelph...

Green Day, Billie Eilish & More Set To Headline Life Is Beautiful Festival

The Life is Beautiful Music & Arts Festival has announced a stacked lineup in what is the most high-profile concert announcement since the outset of the pandemic. Green Day, Billie Eilish, and Tame Impala are set to headline with performances from A$AP Rocky, Haim, Illenium, and many more planned.
