Weekends

Thanks to my mom and dad for raising me on Rock N Roll, I have ventured from Chicago to come rock out with the best of Iowa. If you're trying to find me outside the studio your best bet will be front row at a concert, behind a camera lens, or hidden away behind a book :)

  • Born For Greatness might possibly be my favorite song that Papa Roach have ever released. There is no way you can't feel on top of the world singing along to the lyrics. The video itself shows off everyday people working jobs like Hot Dog Vending and Office work to inspiring people like a one-legged break dancer. Check it out for yourself below!

  • Judas Priest have done a lot of teasing for their next studio album, Firepower. We finally have the title track from the album and it sounds like the old school Priest we all love. This will be the band's 18th studio album and will be fully released on March 9th. The band kicks off their North American tour on March 13th alongside Saxon and Black Star Riders. Enjoy their tune Firepower below!

  • Foo Fighters are pretty well known for doing fun covers while performing (they did a handful of awesome one's when they performed in Des Moines). Since this was their last stop alongside Weezer on their Australian Tour, the band's hopped on stage together to do a cover of Kiss's hit Detroit Rock City.

  • Greta Van Fleet, the up-and-coming young rockers from Michigan have quickly taken a spot in my type 5 favorite new rock bands. Pretty instantly people started comparing them to Led Zeppelin which I think has to be an amazing honor! I have been dying to hear them do a cover of Zeppelin, and thanks to the internet I found it! This is a video from 3-4 years ago but the band sounds amazing. Check out the video below!

  • Fozzy have released a brand new music video for their tune Painless which can be heard on the band's 2017 album, Judas. Fozzy always has a very interesting style for their videos, so it is not surprising this video features odd things like clowns in the background. Enjoy the video below!

  • Ironically, this morning my friends and I were discussing a trip to Thailand so I find this national day to be very fitting in my life!

  • In honor of Marilyn Manson performing in Des Moines tonight, I decided it would be fun to relive what it was like being an outsider in the 90's. Enjoy this terribly uncomfortable family intervention.
