The Darkness Live @ House of Blues 4/24/16

​Lisa Sanchez

​The Darkness have a very distinctive look, capturing a “golden era” of rock and roll filled with sequined jump suits and perfect hair, but I wondered if they could pull it off live. Well, the moment Hawkins came out wearing a jump suit that looked like a circus tent fastened with epaulets, I knew I was going to have a good time. More...

Silent Planet Live @ Mahall's 2/5/16

Lisa Sanchez

The venue seems oddly appropriate, but disjointed for Silent Planet's multidimensional music. Russell spoke with AltOhio in October 2015 and made the band's unabashed anti-materialism stance known. To that effect, Mahall's basement is a great setting for them.

Music has changed, and it's only getting lazier and lazier. The attention span of the average music listening is fucking pathetic now. There are very few active bands/performers who are breaking the mold and forcing the music world to change/pay attention." More...

Interview with Levi Benton of Miss May I

Lisa Sanchez

The singer said, "I think this is the first time we’ve been pissed off on a record. We've always been a heavy band, but we really had something to say on this record.” Benton continued, "It was cool to do something new. It just sort of fell into place, it just happened. We were just pissed at the last couple of years and it was cool to show fans another side of us."

Interview with Garrett Russell of Silent Planet

Lisa Sanchez

"Every day I want to be a part of what we believe in instead of materialism. We can fight human trafficking and we donated $1,000 dollars to Shared Hope International. We need to be careful not to be hypocritical. Being the voices means you're not always able to be the hands."
