    1. Gallery : The Kooks, Halsey, and Priory at The Showbox at The Market

      Posted on in Gallery

      The night began with taking a trip to Portland with Priory. To the likes of the wonderful Grouplove- [minus the girl lead] Priory has a fun, soft, playful sound that makes you feel like you are in the company of great friends. It was a fantastic lighthearted start to the night! Following Priory was Halsey- an incredibly talented young girl with a big voice. A New York-based act comparable to Chvrches, she took over the stage with blue hair and an insanely engaging presence. Her cover of The Killers “When You Were Young” shed a different light on the tune, bringing a lighter sound. If anything, this tour with The Kooks is just the beginning for this bright and talented 20 year old.

      Established British pop quartet Metronomy has a history releasing some seriously incredible work- still a proven fact with the drop of their most recent record Love Letters. Led by the talented Joseph Mount, Metronomy has been making their way into our hearts with songs such as ‘The Look’ and -a personal favorite- ‘A Thing For Me’. A noticeable shift in style from their past work is shown in Love Letters that can only launch the band into a new level of success!

    7. Gallery : Ellie Goulding and Conway At The Paramount Theater 4/23

      Posted on in Gallery

      It’s not a well-kept secret amongst the RCA family that I am head over heels for Ellie Goulding. I bought my ticket about a second after they went on presale, and I flipped OUT when I heard that Amanda and Kelly would be covering the show with me. I’ll restrict my gushing to an unbiased, fair opinion. Promise. Ish.
