Thoughts On Music: My Top 5 Bands/Artists

I was at the bar the other night, and either I prompted - or a gentleman named Harold prompted - who are your top five favorite bands or artists? Top one-to-two, easy to pick. Three takes a sec, and picking four and five takes a moment. I am always dumbfounded when people can't recite their … Continue reading Thoughts On Music: My Top 5 Bands/Artists

QUICKIES: Episode 5

BRANDI IS GOING TO HELL [QUICKIES] / EP 5: DESCRIPTION: Gooch and I get stoned and talk about his upcoming musical endeavors (he's heading to Americana Fest with his band Gooch & The Motion to perform on Jam In The Van, and he's performing at Teddy Pendergrass's 70th Birthday Gala...nbd). Gooch is quadriplegic from an accident, and he is also in remission from battling leukemia; in order to curb the pain and manage the side effects of chemo, he smokes Mary Jane or eats edibles. Hopefully this High Times chat will be reoccurring and help fight the stigma that marijuana still carries in America and throughout the world. 🍁 STREAM EVERYWHERE HERE

I talk about all those things. 💀 STREAM EVERYWHERE HERE

Album of the Day: Back To Black by Amy Winehouse (10-Year Anniversary)

Happy 10 years to Back To Black. I love Amy. Obsessed, actually. She's recapped my less-than-desriable love life from 18-26 - and so perfectly. I started with her catalog at this album with "Tears Dry On Their Own," and am obsessed with everything she has done, down to the B-sides, the demos, the "hidden treasures." Anyone who … Continue reading Album of the Day: Back To Black by Amy Winehouse (10-Year Anniversary)

Ticket Scalpers and Resellers

As soon as pre-sales and on-sales drop for highly-anticipated musical acts, hundreds of thousands of tickets flood to secondary ticketing websites at double-to-decuple the original price. I've spent the past two years of my life on the management-side of the music industry, and have witnessed the soulless side of ticket scalping from a statistical standpoint, until … Continue reading Ticket Scalpers and Resellers
