Going In Blind

Most of shows I go to accompanied by the breadth of music I catch tend to never lend to a full surprise. I always know a minimum of one band on a bill. Rarely is it where I haven’t the slightest clue on a show. However, in the case of Touché Amore and tour bill of Jerome’s Dream and Dangers, I went in completely unfamiliar.

Frantic Fun and Discovery

One of the pleasures of life is pure discovery. Going out to a place you have never been or taking a hiking trail that just caught your eye off the freeway.

A Night Full of Character

Character is the mental and moral qualities distinctive to an individual. They are what tend to separate you from your friends. They come out in many forms, from personality to what you wear.
