Last night via Instagram Live on Ryan’s account all who joined the live stream got a taste of what we’ve all been missing most during this quarantine; live music and togetherness.

First, Ryan and Loren performed – with background barks from Geoffrey.  They opened the stream with singing one of my favorites off of Ryan’s newest album  The Witches Made Me Do It called Bamboo Plants. Following that he played a new song called Gender Binary (Fuck You) , which will be released in honor of Pride Month on June 5th + I’m so excited for you all to hear it. Below is the premiere of the cover art for the song, it’s beautiful.

Between all performances, Ryan set up a cute light up Stay Safe sign!

Next, Mae Krell joined the live stream. They opened with a new song called garden followed by Monster, between songs they spoke a bit about garden and how it was written when they were in a dark place but surrounded by so much beauty.

Following Mae’s performance, April Rose Gabrielli of The Rose Monarch and Jacob Kulick of Kulick joined the live stream to play two songs for us as well. April is currently writing songs and making music for her solo record – and I am so beyond stoked to hear it in  full. She sang her song called Do You, beautifully. As well as a song that was inspired by busy and crowded New York City streets on days where EVERYONE bumps into you – I believe the lyrics went somethin’ like ” Hit me with your f – – – – – g car, cause nothing really moves me anymore.” and I can’t wait til she releases it.

 

Seeing as tour and concerts are on hold for the foreseeable future April has started doing art commissions and created an Instagram just for that @lifeisjustlines – go check it out!

To close out the hour long show, Skylar Kergil joined the live.  He sang Lost & Found, which is a love song, then Tell Me a Story, which was a fan requested and is an all time favorite for most of his followers. Keep your eyes peeled for a new single coming from Skylar soon.

Until then support these artists in any way that you can. Listen to & share a song with your friends, buy some merch, give them a follow/like on social media, anything !!!

Zoom Interview with Singer-songwriter Erin Kirby

During this time ourselves and everyone around us has had to adapt to a new normal. Usually, I’ve done in person interviews or written – this time it’s a video chat interview! In a time where work and school are all done remotely I figured why not interview an artist remotely as well. Below is our first ever zoom interview Cristine did with singer/songwriter Erin Kirby.

Have Mercy Final Tour 2020 | Photos + Review

Have Mercy have been a very important part of the emo, alternative and pop punk music scene, and after a decade of music and touring, they announced they have decided to break up, and that they would do one final North American tour.

Glacier Veins started the show off strong with a very captivating performance. The band has such a good stage presence and looked like they were having so much fun performing their set. The set-list primarily consisted of songs from their newly released debut LP, “The World You Want To See,” including upbeat songs such as “Talk,” “Feel Better Now,” and “Everything Glows,” as well as some slower ones like “Driveway.”

 

Young Culture was up next, bringing another really impressive set. This band brings something refreshing to the modern pop punk genre, and their live set brought a ton of passion and energy from start to finish. They performed all of the songs off of last year’s “(This Is) Heaven” EP (with the exception of “Never Changed”), as well as two older songs, “Party Girl” and “Pure Gold,” and their newly released single, “Holiday In Vegas.” 

 

Second to last was Fredo Disco. The band has so much charisma, especially lead vocalist Fredo Fosco, and they really engaged and captivated a crowd full of people who were very excited to see them perform. Their set-list included their two latest songs (“never tell u” and “harmony korine (the game)”), as well as several others from the project’s past few releases: “burnt and worn out,” “dad jeans,” and “jimbo” from 2019’s “Very Cool Music For Very Cool People,” “saturn suv” and “shower song” from 2017’s “school spirit,” and “Ghost Of Mariano’s” and “Frankenstein” from their 2018 EP “The Boredom Keeps Me Up At Night.”

 

Finally, Have Mercy took the stage to perform the last Denver, Colorado set of their career. Their set-list spanned from throughout their discography, from playing songs from their final record “The Love Life” (“Clair,” “Heartbeat,” “These Streets,” and “Dressed Down”) to classics in their catalogue (“Let’s Talk About Your Hair,” “My Oldest Friend”) and songs from the other albums and EPs that they’ve released from throughout their career: “Spacecrafts,” “Pete Rose And Babe Ruth,” “Two Years” and “Howl” from “A Place Of Our Own,” “Coexist” from “Make The Best Of It,” and “Hell,” “Levelhead,” “This Old Ark” and “When I Sleep” from “The Earth Pushed Back.” 

 

Every band on this lineup put on very impressive and captivating performances, and as a whole, this might have been one of my favorite shows I’ve attended in 2020 so far.
