Outside Lands 2015 Spotlight: St. Paul & The Broken Bones

Outside Lands 2015 Spotlight: St. Paul & The Broken Bones

I really wanted to talk about Benjamin Booker here, but between the nearly untouchable spotlight we did for Governor’s Ball and the complete mind-fucking I had discovering St. Paul & The Broken Bones, there was no way I could not write about this seven piece from Birmingham, thrusting itself into...

Outside Lands 2015 Spotlight: WATERS

Outside Lands 2015 Spotlight: WATERS

We were first introduced to WATERS a few years back as the promising rock & roll remake of the sometimes overlooked indie band Port O’Brien. I’ll admit that Port O’Brien hit my radar mostly because I have a good buddy named Pat O’Brien, and yeah, thats how the brain works,...

Check out Day 1 Previews HERE Day 2 of any festival is where you separate the amateurs from the pros. Are you the busted-ass adult-child who doesn’t show up to day 2 because they got too drunk to fuck, downing that entire bottle of fireball the night before? If you...

Outside Lands 2015 Spotlight: Glass Animals

Outside Lands 2015 Spotlight: Glass Animals

I’ll be the first one to admit that electronic music is not my thing. No matter what flavor it comes in, I usually don’t find myself vibing or grooving or whatever it is that I’m supposed to be doing. When I’m at a bar, on a stoop or in the...

Outside Lands 2015 – 1 Line Previews of Day 1

One of my favorite things we do here at Pinpoint is our annual SXSW coverage. I love the anticipation, the arrival and the live accounts of the descent into the despicable life. When I can’t make it myself, I’m constantly checking the news, the social feeds and seeing who the...

Governors Ball 2015 – Teri’s Addendums

Governors Ball 2015 – Teri’s Addendums

I’d forgotten my goddamn headphones. Doesn’t seem to make sense to lament over headphones when one is on her way to a music festival, but I’m a commuter first, festival-attendee fifteenth. In fact, I had never been to a music festival. I have this thing about crowds (which I’d rather...

Governors Ball 2015 – Day 3

Governors Ball 2015 – Day 3

Limping, tendons twisted like pants in a washing machine, sunburn creeping ants down my neck, I made my way to the third day of the concert. Slight headache, eyes squinting. Let’s do this. Tame Impala – Seconds after walking in through the press entrance, electrified Daft Punk-styles vocals kicked the...
