Looking back on 2019, I am blown away by the amount of beautiful experiences I had. To say last year was a wild ride is an understatement. As humans we grow and change all the time, but for me 2019 was really about finding myself and embracing the shit out of that. Fla...

Punk festivals are chaotic, and it’s exactly this unpredictability that we love. The Fest in Gainesville, Florida, is certainly no exception, and the unpredictability factor might actually be higher because Fest is organized between 18 different venues over three days,...

Hi. It's me. Your every day mom trying to survive the holiday season!

I'm doing what everyone is doing right around now. Running around the house like an absolute  maniac, trying to squeeze out the last drop of holiday cheer left in me. Decorating, helping plan class pa...

As a Mable, I think it goes without saying that I love shows. And as far as shows go, I think I’ve seen them from almost every seat in the house. I’ve played them in bands. I’ve booked and promoted them. I’ve worked the door, house-managed, been pit security, sound cre...

5. Face to Face, Less Than Jake, Direct Hit, at Gas Monkey, Dallas, TX, April 21

This was one worth travelling for. I am lucky that my job allows flexibility and travel, so oftentimes it’s a “kill two birds” sort of situation, and my work trip can also be an opportunity...

January 2, 2019

So as everyone knows, 2018 was a tough year for me personally. I have made it very well known that music was absent from my life and live shows have been something I have missed out on. However, I listened to uncountable hours of podcast this year. In my car, in the sh...
