The divine presence of Father John Misty elicited an atmosphere of spiritual autonomy.

Father John Misty blesses the Orpheum

Concerts are the closest thing to church I attend. I’ve noticed this in the stories I’ve written about shows, almost always making comments like “I think *insert artist name here* and the heavenly lights were summoning me to the afterlife.”

The National

The National’s vocals impress, even when the mic breaks

I typically listen to The National while writing, like right now, letting lead vocalist Matt Berninger’s baritone lull me into focus in the background. At their performance last Tuesday, though, Berninger pulled me into his show, his intensity tangible as he sang like he was sharing the song with the person it’s about for the first time.

Eaux Claires 2018 Recap

“IV is the sum of the I, II, and III.” That was the driving thought behind the fourth installment of the Eaux Claires music festival according to the festival’s homepage. In years past, co-creators Justin Vernon and Aaron Dessner have used the weekend in the woods to shine a light on emerging artists and give fans the opportunity to see influential artists of a massive scale.

Mitski's gentle yet striking voice stirred the emotions of concertgoers at the High Noon Saloon last week.

Mitski enchants audience with heartbreaking, empowering music

Superheroes don’t always wear capes, or so the saying goes. Sometimes they blend into the black backdrop on a stage and cast their powers over a crowd through the vibrations of their guitar strings. Indie rock singer-songwriter Mitski radiated this power, her chin raised and legs placed firmly in a powerful stance, regal as she watched over her kingdom at the High Noon Saloon this past Thursday.

The band just finished the U.S. leg of the tour promoting their latest album, Press Restart, with Madison as their penultimate stop. 

Walk the Moon brings electric new tunes to Orpheum

Most people know Walk the Moon from their acclaimed, overplayed pop hit “Shut and Dance.” If you don’t know the tune, you must have done a pretty good job at avoiding every radio station for the past four years. However, few are aware that “Shut Up and Dance,” though a relentlessly catchy tune, is not the band’s best song.
