Recap: Firefly 2016 brought Mumford and Sons, Blink-182, & Deadmau5 to Dover

Concert Review: Lucinda Williams, Buick 6 @ The Opera House

By: Daniel Gerichter (@ZenDonut) – If you had to describe Lucinda Williams’ sound or songwriting style, the term “road worn” comes to mind. But judging from night one of her two-night stint at the Opera House last night, her voice and passion for her craft are anything but. At 63-years-old, Williams is essentially peerless. Her music is … Continue reading

Concert Review/Photos: Madchild @ Babylon nightclub

By: Lucy Sky – Madchild’s show at Babylon nightclub in downtown Ottawa on January 21st was a night filled with dirty beats, and the grimiest of rhymes.
