The Chainsmokers Blew Smoke Up Our You-Know-What at March Madness (Phoenix New Times)

On Saturday I went back to Hance Park for another music festival (this time it was the March Madness fest). I got to see The Chainsmokers live and they were… underwhelming, to put it mildly. Here’s my review for Phoenix New Times.

Panic! At The Disco Made Thousands of Teenage Hearts Swoon at Talking Stick Resort Arena (Phoenix New Times)

Last night I went to Talking Stick Resort Arena to see Panic! At The Disco. They’re not a band that I particularly enjoy, but hey- I was getting paid to see them. Turns out their live show was pretty fantastic. It was cheesy, over the top, and expensive-looking. All in all, it was a grand ol’ time. Here’s my review of it for Phoenix New Times.

Here’s What Happened When Viva PHX Took Over Downtown Saturday Night

I attended Viva PHX last Saturday, as part of a roving team of New Times reporters. It was a music festival that encompassed over a dozen different venues and featured a ton of fantastic bands (so many excellent ones that it was impossible to see them- still kicking myself for missing Fucked Up and YACHT). Here’s our group write-up on the event.
