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...and maybe a bar or two ;)

  • Foo Fighters will be releasing their upcoming studio album Concrete and Gold on September 15th and it seems the album will be full of surprises.

  • After receiving a box full of my parents vinyls years ago, I instantly fell in love with Pink Floyd. They raised me on rock and roll but typically showed me things like Collective Soul and Shinedown, so my knowledge of Floyd at the time was very limited. My favorite album by the iconic group will always be The Wall (something about it just hit's me in the right spot) but we can't deny the masterpiece that is Dark Side of the Moon.

  • I have a soft spot in my heart for amazing covers but this cover of System of a down's Chop Suey has blown me away! Jazz music has so much soul to it and hearing a metal song redisigned to fit that style really adds a whole new outlook on the lyrics. Enjoy!

  • I was in choir pretty much my entire life and we did some cool things, but definitely never anything this cool! This school band covers "Killing in the name" and they absolutely rock it. The kids really get into it and you can tell they are having a blast! I vote for more metal in schools.

  • I have being going a little crazy with the lack of concerts in my life lately, so when I got invited to go see some local bands at my favorite bar I jumped at the opportunity. I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of talent that was shown in every band from opener to headliner. Playing to a crowd of less than 50 people didn't stop any of the musicians from playing with intense energy and passion. I felt right at home.

  • Every time I sit down to have a vinyl listening session (usually with my cat) I have an extremely hard time choosing what to listen to and half the time I end up with my favorite Pink Floyd album- The Wall.

  • If you know me you than you know that I love having my makeup done nicely, especially if I am going out to a concert or for a night on the town. Finding a great new makeup pallete is always exciting to me, so when I found one that combines my love for makeup and rock music I just had to try it out.
