The Master, the General, The Gatlin

Over two dozen live performances, twenty music videos, six albums, a diss track/diss video combo, and a partridge in a pear tree later, Greg King, aka The Gatlin had one hell of a 2018. The culmination of it all came with the last minute, final quarter surprise release of ...

Marsha Ambrosius is coming to bear her soul

Marsha Ambrosius is coming to bear her soul

Marsha Ambrosius is the shit, and more folks need to act like they know that. Alright, maybe I started that a LITTLE too aggressively. Let me try that again… Marsha Ambrosius is the shit, more folks need to act like they know that, but I forgive you for being unaware. ...

The Gems of Treasure Island

“San Francisco, you are beautiful!” I heard this so much at the Treasure Island Music Festival this year, and each time, the crowd would collectively cringe. Why? For the first time in it’s eleven year existence, TIMF did not take place on Treasure Island. ...

If You Miss These Artists, You’re Trippin: Treasure Island MF, Saturday

If You Miss These Artists, You’re Trippin: Treasure Island MF, Saturday

I know what you’re thinking. “Liv, where the FUCK have you been? You haven’t written in a minute!” Don’t worry guys. I’m back. I just needed to take a break. My brain was fried, my body was (and is) old and weathered, and my kids were ...

The true DOPEness of the Smoked Out BBQ

There is such a nostalgic feel to the Smoked Out BBQ line up. If you didn’t notice the actual date on the flyer, you would almost think that Paid Dues had reappeared from the ether. You would think that Rock the Bells was reincarnated. You would almost think that real ...

Playlists and the Modern Artist: Cash Campain

Playlists and the Modern Artist: Cash Campain

Playlists are life. At least for me. They are the thing that gets me through the day at work but they are also VITAL to finding out about new artists, new music, new vibes. I spend the day on Spotify jumping from different ones, trying to discover that GEM that sets your ...

Dispatch from a Road Trip — The Smokers Club Fest — Day One

Yes, I have said it before. Yes, I will say it again. Festival season is like Christmas for me. I wait for line up announcements each year like a kid waiting for Santa to slide in them chimneys. There were few festivals that I wanted to check out MORE than The Smokers Club ...

Part 1 of the HIGH-lights of California’s Festival Season

That’s right! It is 4-20 and of course I am celebrating in as unsurprising a way possible. Working. Right, you weren’t expecting that shit were you? My stoner ass just sitting here at a desk, typing away whilst the rest of the world gets high on their own ...

Lion Babe: If you don’t know them, you should.

Lion Babe: If you don’t know them, you should.

Fuck I love Lion Babe. I was introduced to them through a playlist a former lover made for me — yes I said LOVER because I am 35 years old and it sounds just juvenile as hell to say “my ex boyfriend”. As I was saying, my former LOVER used to make me ...

Caleborate & Cash Campain — Sacramento’s Homecoming Kings

Holy Diver has been open since late last year, but I confess I had never stepped foot into the place until last week. Not because I have some sort of vendetta against Holy Diver, quite the contrary. Brett, Eric and Anthony are all amazing folks who have worked in the ...

Russ Solomon Passes in the most Boss Way

I used to skip school on the regular to go and spend hours meandering around Tower Records. Back when you could throw headphones on and listen to the next big artist on the rise, or the staff picks of the week (they were always better than the chart toppers) — it was a

Beaches, Beats and Wu-Tang Yoga: SCMF ain’t nothing to…. well, you get it

The last couple of weeks have been more than hectic, but it has helped me to realize something. It is a great time in life to get your priorities straight, especially with all of the amazing manifestations that have been coming my way recently. One of my major priorities has
