My First Warped Tour

I have never really been to a music festival, personally I thought I was probably making a huge mistake going to Warped tour, I had the stereotypical view on music festivals. At first I thought it was going to be a dirty, hot, drunken, drug fest. Well this proved me wrong. The whole area was great, kept up and clean, flyers all over the place but no true garbage on…

The Madison Project (Burlington, Vermont)

The Madison Project has been around since 2006, after Forrest (drummer) and Ryan (vocalist/guitars) ended their tenure with a previous band and wanted to create something new, something that would change the face of music as they knew it. The two spun their feels until the later months of 2006 when Ben (bass) joined up, forming the Madison Project. Each member of the Madison Project provides a diverse set of…

Most people know that my…

The Seven Deadly Sins of the “Wannabe”Musician

“If you live to play…Then play damn it.” 1)Thinking that you have to make your money “touring”. Where is it written that you have to live by the breadcrumbs the bars and clubs of this world are willing to give you in some town you have never heard of? This is bad thinking champ. And bad thinking leads to bad business. You have no following in Bumblestream Ohio- so how…

Musings on Buddhism and Islam by Danica.

Sometimes I begin to wonder what have I done with my life. I mean I’ve done some cool stuff, been to a lot of awesome places, and had a few drinks with some friends…but I sometimes wonder is there more to life than getting drunk. I know that with most 18 year olds that spirituality isn’t a main concern for them… but I’ve been though too much to not think…
