Favorite Destinations of 2019

2019 was full of new places. I went on my first solo Road Trip, following King Gizzard for a week and getting to check in on a bunch of my people on the East Coast. I made four trips to Toronto and never went to the same neighborhood twice. Perhaps most excitingly, I finally went on my first big international trip, exploring the Caribbean with … Continue reading Favorite Destinations of 2019

The Best Live Acts of 2019

In 2019, I traveled all over the North-East on live music adventures. I mostly saw garage rock shows, but there were a few other genres scattered around there. And somewhat unfortunately, this year didn’t feature a one-off classic rock show anywhere in the mix, but those tickets are account drainers. Now, I thought about doing a fun superlative list for this, or coming up with … Continue reading The Best Live Acts of 2019
