Set Review: Pierce The Veil – “The World Tour” (November 22, 2014 – Hartford, CT)
Vic 1
It’s closing in on 8:30 at night at The Webster Theater. The crowd is getting anxious. The main room in this Hartford, CT venue is packed and bustling with noise from the audience. The venue is one of the smallest on the tour, only packing in about 1,250 people, but it is still rumbling with voices and screams. I make my way to the stage through a sea of young adults. I might be the....

Album Review: Run For It – Better Days EP
Run For It Better Days
The Northeastern US has a knack for delivering only the best from the pop-punk world, and rockers Run For It are no exception to that trend. Seemingly determined to single-handedly prove that the genre isn’t dead, the five-piece is comprised of former members of bands Man Overboard and Bangarang.

The five-track EP was recorded by Bob Curtin in The Gravity Room studios and was released on January 8, 2013. Pop-punk as a genre has the tendency of focusing on the more intangible desires of life – dreaming of adventure, of struggling against an unseen enemy, of prioritizing dreams over all else....

Album Review: Punk Goes Pop Volume 5
Punk Goes Pop Volume 5 Album Art
Upon hearing that Fearless Records was releasing another Punk Goes Pop album, I was anxious, yet skeptical. While the concept of merging all things pop into the world of punk is an interesting concept within itself, past releases in the series have also left me craving a little extra “gritty flair” that makes an album truly stand out. Punk Goes Pop 5, however, has taken a different approach to covering popular radio hits...
