A Review of Sugar Ray at Riverwoods

My ward (yes I am one of the many, many Mormons in Provo) had its Winter Semester Closing Social last night, and I was in charge of the talent show. By the time we finally got out of there, most of the local shows were underway and I wasn’t planning on spending any money. The only thing left was Sugar Ray at the Riverwoods.

Thanks for all the support so far!

I honestly can’t understand what people are expecting from a free blog run by a busy college student who also works. I’m not even a writer. I haven’t gotten a good grade on a writing assignment since high school. I’ve even started every sentence so far with “I”, if that tells you anything. Read the rest of this entry

Provo can rock. It can rock hard. (Concert Report: Velour, March 25 2011)

Chasing Kings‘ frontman Matt Schwartz told me last night that no other town in the United States has a music scene like Provo.
