Dori Cameron – Ladyfest (06/25/17)

Returning from Boston, Pittsburgh native Dori Cameron made the trek home to grace Ladyfest 2017 with her ethereal voice.  Performing originals from her EP Violent Musemany of Cameron’s lyrics are born of personal experiences – such as her tracks “Come What may” and “Soul Crimes.”  Listening to her clear voice over the raw mic at Hambone’s, one can feel the emotions of longing and hope behind her meaningful lyrics.

Ladyfest Recap III: Cattivo (6/24/17)

After a long day of Ladyfesting on Friday (see my coverage of The Shop and Gooski’s), I went back out again on Saturday to catch more music at Cattivo. Both the upstairs and downstairs stages were running, meaning that the music never stopped.

Kicking things off upstairs was traveler Samm Bones. Some of you may be familiar with her, as she lived in the city last year until she got the itch to move on. She alternated between banjo and keyboard for her songs, and took a break in the middle to read a passage from her travel memoir, “Heavy Metal Meditations.”

Show Review: Mama’s Madness / Cynimatics / Johnny and the Razorblades / Upon Rocket @ The Rex Theater (6/24/17)

Shows at The Rex Theater are always an experience. Most recently, I attended the Johnny and the Razorblades show there on 06.24.17 with support from Mama’s Madness, Cynimatics, and Upon Rocket. Honestly, I only knew half of the ticket, so I was looking forward to a new experience. I like to be surprised with what I find on an unknown ticket.

First up was a surprise addition to the ticket, Stephanie Kong.

Ladyfest Recap I: The Shop (6/23/17)

Ladyfest 2017 kicked off Friday night at The Shop in Bloomfield. By the time I arrived at 7:10, this DIY venue already boasted a sizable crowd. Based on the demographics (teenage girls and parental types), I could tell that many were there to see opening band WolfBlud.


WolfBlud. I wish I were that talented when I was their age. Or now, to be honest.
