Interview with Bishop Briggs from her headlining tour in San Francisco at legendary Fillmore

April 25, 2017

With BottleRock Napa 2017 just about a month away, we were excited to catch one of our favorite BottleRock Napa Spotlight Bands perform. Bishop Briggs made a stop in San Francisco last week to perform a date from her first headlining tour at the legendary Fillmore. They performed last year at the iconic venue, opening for Kaleo and blew us away. They did it again, as this time they were there for their headlining show, and they truly gave 150% out on that stage! We had the chance to catch up with Bishop Briggs shortly before her set. You can check out our interview here: The night kicked off with an eclectic indie pop electronic set by Manatee Commune. Followed by SHAED, a vibrant pop band highlighted with powerful vocals. From the moment Bishop hit the stage, the crowd went wild with enthusiasm. It was pure bliss as the music washed away all our worries and concerns. Instead, filling us with energy, euphoria and serenity. As we talked with Bishop, her music is an elixir [Read More]

A borderless bond of fun.  Mar Abierto by Jenny and the Mexicats. By Patrick O’Heffernan

April 19, 2017

 (Los Angeles) Jenny Ball – the “Jenny” in Jenny and the Mexicats – tells a story of playing in a packed sit-down venue in Europe where the audience was listening obediently in their chairs until one fan could not resist the music, jumped up and started dancing and singing along.  The band was delighted but the police came in and forced him to sit down and stop singing.  So the band invited him up to sing with them. He cried onstage he was so happy,  the audience stood and cheered, and the band rocked on with a new energy.  That is the kind of band Jenny and the Mexicats is -absolutely adored by their fans and not afraid of anything,  including seamlessly sliding from Spanish to English, from flamenco to rockabilly, from pop to acoustic. Which is exactly what their new album, Mar Abierto (Open Seas) does. Fourteen songs in all, including album credits set to music, ricocheting from Spanish to English, from Latin Rock to Jamaican dance,  to love lost heartbreaking trumpet.  There is [Read More]

Shinedown, As Lions and ColdKingdom; A Night of Music feeds my soul and rejuvenates my spirit

April 14, 2017

As you know our motto here at Music Junkie Press has always been Know Music = Know Life, No Music = No Life.  We are strong believers at how music can help, heal, inspire and change us in an instant. It can be the emotional release we need to let go of fears, pain or suffering. It can be the cheers of celebration when we have succeeded or overcome an obstacle. Or it can simply be the best friend who is there for you always, in good or bad times. Last night, we returned to cover shows after a two month hiatus we took, due to the loss of a family member. We have been in a lull, a rut of simply going through the motions, as we dealt with the day to day routines. Our time was spent barely showing any emotion, because any moment we felt our heart would break open again, and the sadness would flow endlessly. But we decided it was time to return to doing what we love and we headed [Read More]
