#TourHappens With…The Beaches

They’re a new wave of lady rock following in the footsteps of those who have come before like The Runaways, Elastica and Band of Skulls. I’m talking about the Toronto foursome, the Beaches, who are sisters Jordan Miller (vox/bass) and Kylie Miller (lead guitar) along with Eliza Enman McDaniel (drums) and Leandra Earl (keys/guitar). Still in their teens and with their debut album, […]

#TourHappens With…Sheppard

While 2017 has seen them serve as main support for the Australian and New Zealand legs of Justin Beiber’s Purpose Tour as well as on a European run with Little Minx, it’s been two years since the United States has had the pleasure of having the Australian indie pop sextet Sheppard hustling from city to city in order to entertain […]

Important world events are taking place on a daily basis, so let’s take a moment and acknowledge what we’re dealing with: The New York Yankees got denied in their quest for a 41st pennant and another trip to the World Series while the Los Angeles Dodgers (along with the Houston Astros) are heading to the dance. Yes it’s a random way […]

#TourHappens…With Lukas Nelson

“Well, it’s funny, ’cause my first experience of going on the road, truly, was when I was like an infant, you know.” Sometimes the past is so sensory, so formative that even in the second-hand telling it feels tangible to a listener. As the 28-year old progeny of Willie Nelson, Lukas Nelson has more than his share of history to […]
