Interview: Video7

  Last week, I joined Video7 for a rehearsal ahead of their performance at Waking Windows Festival. On the heels of their first streaming release, Looplands Volume 3&4, Video7 has established their brand as one to watch. Despite this, I still didn’t know what to expect from the audio/visual collective. Listening to their mixes on…


Interview: saajtak

    A mark of any good live band is the ability to improvise. Not only does it showcase polished musicianship, but it gives even the most enthusiastic fans something new and exciting.

Interview: Deadbeat Beat

I had seen them play in Ann Arbor a little over a week before but nearly failed to recognize guitarist Alex Glendening when he showed up to the venue, on account of the bitchin’ mustache he had…


Interview: Protomartyr

  Nestled between a vegetarian-friendly diner and a gourmet bagel shop on Michigan Avenue in Corktown — Detroit’s oldest, but also one of its hottest, neighborhood — PJ’s Lager House has long been known as a hangout spot for local bands such as The White Stripes and a destination for touring rock acts looking to…
