Concert Review: Lights Is A Giver of Hope At Samsung 837

Lights gave a spectacular show at Samsung 837 that left me SHOOKETH! I had the pleasure of interviewing Lights, and was impacted by her sweetness and candor. The fiery, red-headed creative has gone beyond her singing talents to become a comic-book creator, i.e. Skin & Earth. Thus, it is no surprise the she is such… Continue reading Concert Review: Lights Is A Giver of Hope At Samsung 837

I get sentimental when I see certain bands. I have the pleasure of seeing many good ones, but, on occasion, I can feel their ambition. Maybe, it is intuition or certain “moon-phases”, but I swear the “hunger” comes out, and an artist’s desire to give the crowd their heart can be felt. The War On… Continue reading Concert Review: The War On Peace Prove Its Starts With An Individual

His capacity to deliver songs like they were written in his feelings for outer… Continue reading Concert Review: Rationale Is “Stay Woke” Music At Mercury Lounge

Film Review: Santa & Andres Shows Political Revolutions Are NOT For Everyone

Political Revolutions do not happen for everyone. The irony of revolutions is that they rise on the backs of poorer men, who eventually become the richer ones of a new institution. Catch my drift?
