Big Time Rush with a side of One Direction

We hit the road to Nashville at 4:30 p.m. last Wednesday (after work and school) on the way to see Big Time Rush at Bridgestone Arena.

2011: It was a good year for concerts.

While most of you are busy de-Christmas-ing your homes (My tree is staying up till at least mid-January, since I love the lights!), getting organized, and thinking about what you’ll do in the coming year – or at least where you’ll go/what you’ll wear to ring in 2012 tomorrow night – I am taking a…

Soul, pop, electronica and alternative are represented, to name a few. I must say I prefer “Jim” from 2008 to any of the…

Rock Of Ages Rocks.

I’m not the type of person to be stuck on one musical genre, I’m open to lots of different things. That’s not to say that I don’t have my favorites. Most people who know me personally will vouch for the fact that I’m a total 80′s freak. In fact, my best friend (who lives a…
