We Are The In Crowd

1 Jul

I remember the first time I heard Paramore. Sure, we had Hole, The Distillers, No Doubt, and Garbage; but something about Paramore, I can’t even explain it. It seems that they started a frenzy with girls going out and dying their hair different colors and knowing how to sing. Paramore is awesome, Hey Monday is okay, Versaemerger doesn’t really do anything for me, but now we have the new and up and coming girl lead singer with We Are The In Crowed. I actually was booking a show last June and a few people in my company were wanting to book them. Honestly, I wasn’t really into them, they hadn’t played many shows, and I wasn’t feeling the whole “lets be unoriginal and sound like everyone else” thing. Plus, the guy singer needs to be cut out of the band. I had also heard that the band formed together just last year. Are labels that desperate to copy whats already good and take a band that hasn’t paid there dues? I love Hopeless records, but I think there taste of success with All Time Low has gone to their heads. Labels need to start think ahead instead of repeating what already has been done. I’m not one to judge people on there musical tastes, so check them out and judge for yourself.

Talent who deserves to be talked about.

1 Jul

I may be a nobody, but I have the power to blog my opinion. I am 21 and I read alternative press, absolute punk, and any gossip site that holds my interest at the time. I can be very critical of music and for most bands it takes me listening to them more than a handful of times to even admit to liking them. First impression isn’t always the best. I am hear to voice my opinion about bands, bands who hate on other bands, or even dissect songs that are interesting enough or just plain stupid. I am not hear to talk about how Lady Gaga is just a fad or does Kesha really think people should take her seriously? I am here to discuss bands and artist with talent who deserve to be talked about. I am also here to shoot down artists who are way too full of themselves. Honestly, bloggers blog about the same people: Kesha, Lady Gaga, and Justin Bieber. It’s very rare to find a blog that posts about the music scene that is under the radar. I actually follow one blog which I will link you to, PropertyOfZack, which is a breath of fresh air. This blog will also update you on current events about bands that just don’t have other mediums for them to do so. So read on and enjoy my opinions and news that is coming your way.
