Portugal. the Man/Vance Joy | 12.14.17

Portugal. the Man had one of the best years of any alternative rock band in 2017. When they played at the Pageant in June, it was a solid show. Given that the band released their new album that week, it was a bit disappointing to not hear more new material. Whatever reason the band chose... Continue Reading →

Twenty One Pilots | 2.13.12

Firebird, St. Louis Note: I wanted to share my review of Twenty One Pilots from their 2012 show at the Firebird in St. Louis, MO. Seeing how far this band has come in just five years gives some perspective. Twenty One Pilots fully encompassed every inch of the Firebird on a cold Wednesday night in... Continue Reading →


MUSE/ Thirty Seconds to Mars | 6.13.17

2016 may have been the most depressing of my life (29 years). When it came to live music however, it was one of my best. It featured TWO shows at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado, a Beatle,  two Cage the Elephant shows and an exclusive show in St. Louis by rock and roll hall of... Continue Reading →


Green Day | 10.26.16

It isn’t very often a band in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame plays a venue that holds under 2,300 rabid music lovers.  That was the case as Green Day wrapped up their small club tour at The Pageant in St. Louis, MO. The show was supposed to be the first date of the... Continue Reading →
