You should follow @Provo_Music on Twitter for all sorts of treats and goodies.

Hey everyone, lately I’ve been getting plenty of e-mails, but most of those are people either asking me to review albums/shows or sometimes even asking me to help book a show! But I also get the occasional bit of fan mail, telling me Read the rest of this entry


Review: Calm Paradox – How to Mind

Most girls, when they pick up an acoustic guitar, are content to either imitate Taylor Swift or Ingrid Michaelson. They don’t sing with their real voice, opting instead to imitate the pronunciations and inflections of a favorite singer. With every newcomer, I see more and more homogeny.

Reviews: Matt Weidauer, The Brocks, and Provo’s bustling music scene

Don’t forget to follow @Provo_Music on Twitter for all your local opinions in short form!

Glowing Heads, the Howitzers, Colleen Green, and Meth House Party Band @ the Compound (March 12, 2011)

Follow @Provo_Music on Twitter for up-to-the-minute snarky opinions and mean-spirited comments!

This was the first Compound show I’ve been to in a while, and it was the best show I have ever been to in my life.

Review: Ferocious Oaks – Polyamory EP

I have been jonesing to get my hands on Ferocious Oaks‘ Polyamory EP and was finally able to last night. The band released the EP headlining Velour a week ago, to much success. They are relatively new but have been quickly growing in success thanks to their energetic and unpredictable live shows.

The Howitzers and Crab Scratch Ecstasy at Muse Music – 2/18/2011

How are you doing fellow music lovers? I know I have not updated in quite awhile, but schoolwork and all that have made me a busy bee, missing a number of local shows. But I am not one to so quickly abandon my post, so I am back with another fine entry. Read the rest of this entry

The Deathstar: Making Noise ‘Twixt Velour & Muse

You can still read the sign that says “LEGION” on the empty building between Velour and Muse. It is the ghost of a failed skate shop, sitting empty for years. The floors are stripped and dirty. The walls are covered in graffiti. And if you want to use the bathroom, I suggest you Read the rest of this entry

Toy Bombs, Shark Speed, Eyes Lips Eyes, and Seve Vs Evan @ Velour
