DEE’S PICKS:

What I Learned at Bandcamp: Waterstrider,” originally published on February 9, 2012

I was a fast fan of Waterstrider. Earlier this month, I had the chance to see the band live for the first time. It was a beautiful experience. I love this answer from the interview: “I think creating things is a natural part of being human. It gives us purpose. Therefore, music has the power to heal and allow us to grow. In this way, it also carries a lot of power to help foster social change and cultural awareness.”

An Answer to the Day-Old Question: #WhoisPaulMcCartney?!,” originally published on February 14, 2012

I think this is still a relevant piece about Mr. McCartney.


ALEXIS’ PICKS:

Dave Grohl’s ‘Sound City’ Playing at Filmbar,¬†originally published on February 6, 2013

I chose this post because after writing the article I went to see the film and it was wonderful and better than I expected. I highly recommend watching it if you get the chance.
