Ace Hood at Common Ground Music Festival

The sun peered from behind a gray sky as hundreds gathered in front of the enormous stage complete with jumbotrons on each side alerting those too far back to see the on stage antics. Any regular Friday, it’s place to relax by the Grand River while resting in the greenery underneath the shadows of a nearby Burger King, Rally’s and an urban loft complex which reminds you, even in the park, you aren’t too far from the city. That week, however, Adado Riverfront Park transformed itself into the setting of Lansing’s largest music festival.

To complete the picture of this perfect evening in the park with all of your closest strangers was “Bugatti” singer Ace Hood. Although Big Sean was billed as the top performer for Common Ground’s Friday line-up, Ace gave life to the crowd in his own way. Read More…

Interview: Alex Kerns from Lemuria

A decade in the making, Lemuria is a band from Buffalo, NY that pumps out album after 7″ after album of emotionally charged indie-rock/pop music. Just over a year ago, Lemuria released their newest album, The Distance Is So Bigand followed it with nearly nonstop touring of the US, Asia, the UK and Australia. Their most recent US tour started off with The Menzingers, Cayetana and PUP. By the time the band got to Ferndale, Michigan, they were finishing out their run playing with Kind Of Like Spitting – a band form Portland, Oregon that happened to have taken Lemuria out on tour back in 2006.

I got to sit down with Lemuria’s drummer/vocalist, Alex Kerns, before their show at the Loving Touch in Ferndale on July 12th. Read More…

Baths – Miasma Sky

Will Wiesenfeld, better known by his stage name Baths, is an artist from 2007 who has been taking the music scene by storm. If you haven’t heard of this experimental electronic artist, you are really missing out. Since 2007, Baths has released 3 studio albums as well as performed at many venues. I had my first experience with Baths live at the Magic Stick earlier this year. Not only does this guy focus on being the best performer he can be, but he lights up the crowd with his personality and light-hearted jokes. Recently he has just released the Ocean Death EP, which brings together his electronic beats along with his interesting high-pitched twisted voice. Even if he hasn’t impacted your airwaves yet, you should give him a try. One of his highly sought after tracks is called Miasma Sky.
