CONCERT REVIEW: Go Ahead and Die – Bodybox – Deep Within, Scoundrel and Cursed Live at Strummers 


Strummers is a really chill and fun venue that’s hosted shows throughout the years, and I have always had the pleasure of seeing bands even as a fan. Located in the Tower District, where there are other places to go for music, bars, dining, or just walk around and enjoy the atmosphere and its beauty. Walking into Strummers through the bar area and into the show side, with lights dim low and only a bit of stage light for the upcoming bands to perform the night away.Continue reading

CONCERT REVIEW: He Was A God – Bone Church – Shagohod Live at Park City Music Hall 


On a quaint main street in the East End section of the city of Bridgeport, Connecticut next to dance studios and gastro pubs, lies a soon-to-be well-known music venue called Park City Music Hall. It boasts a full bar, a menu with options for everyone, incredible sound, lighting, and not just lights, and a green room as large as the event space itself. Almost beyond belief is a large parking lot in the back, in addition to the available on-street parking. A substantial investment is clear but, what stands out even above all of this is the staff. Everyone was friendly, attentive and makes it their mission for the bands and patrons alike to have the best experience possible.Continue reading
