North by Northeast 2013

The ROCKthusiast Gilles LeBlanc is back for another year of North by Northeast craziness. He’s grabbed his earplugs and is heading downtown to the Big Smoke of Toronto to file incisive and informative field reports over the next few days. If you’re one of the hundreds of thousands attending NXNE, hopefully they’ll act as a […]

Exploring the Jovial Jubilee (Fest)

Experiencing another action-packed weekend in the City of Angels, I kicked off last Friday night attending the Jubilee Music & Arts Festival. Moved from its original location in SilverLake, the festival’s ambiance in its main location was quite different- cult-like, underground (like a secret society) and badass right next to the Sixth Street Bridge in […]

Jammin the “Stress Away” at UCLA’s 2013 JazzReggae Fest Reggae Day

This past Memorial Day, I returned to UCLA’s Intramural Field to get my soca wind on and to reggae jam and chill with my Caribbean peoples at the largest West Coast reggae festival around. There aren’t too many fests in general that give you the variety of music you will find on both days, for […]

Southern Ontario in particular will be getting louder over the next little while – On Saturday, May 25th, it’s the inaugural Festival, taking place at Echo Beach, Toronto’s sand-covered concert setting […]

An absolutely massive punk, rock, and alternative lineup will descend upon Humboldt Park the weekend of September 13-15.

Dayton, Ohio rockers Hawthorne Heights can’t wait for summer to come. Not only are they on this year’s Vans Warped Tour, they have a brand new album coming out called Zero, their fifth as a band.

Couchella Coverage

Post by our very own Gilles LeBlanc (@ROCKthusiast) I’ve never been to California, let alone the Coachella Festival, but it’s been destination viewing for me since 2008. They produce the best webcast in my opinion. I know pretty much every major music festival can be viewed from the comfort of one’s home these days, but for […]
