Live Photos: Camera Box and Jeremiah Wilde

Words and photos by John Morrow

On May 21st, I had the opportunity to catch Atlanta-based alt rock band Camera Box (and their opening act, Jeremiah Wilde!) at the release show for CB’s debut album, Physical, and it was definitely not a show to miss. Their stage presence was lively and bold all while performing loud and exciting songs like “Physical Love” and “Mexico”, which kept the crowd dancing the entire night. Throughout the set, Camera Box also demonstrated their ability to power through some vibey, slower songs such as “Let a Hundred Flowers Bloom” and “Limbs (Wake Up)”. The show felt super personal- I knew that I was witnessing an amazing band take shape. Be sure to keep an eye out for Camera Box’s future projects, as they are bound to be outstanding!

How to Make it in Live Music Production

Words by Meagan MastrianiPhotos courtesy of Colin Harty

My friend Colin Harty has what you might call a dream job. He gets to tour with musicians such as Journey, the Roots, and Justin Bieber. His gigs have taken him from Newfoundland to Mexico City and even on cruise ships in the Bahamas. Of course, those are just the perks– the most important thing is that Colin truly loves the work itself.

Review + Live Photos: The Hotline Spring Tour

Words and photos by Savana Ogburn

When the Hotline Spring Tour was announced early this year, I was ecstatic. As a massive fan of Drake’s pastel pink-hued tunes as well as the dreamy electronic band, Magic Man, it was the perfect combination. Add in the catchy indie-rock of opener Panama Wedding and the energetic, spunky electro-rock of Australian quartet The Griswolds, and you’ll have the rainbow-swirled party that kept fans dancing allllll night long.

An Ode to The 1975

Words and photos by Angela Levitan

Have you ever listened to a band and felt like you completely belonged in the world that they created?  For me, that band is The 1975.  I discovered them about three years ago at the ripe age of 13 and haven’t stopped loving them since.  Their bubbly yet somewhat edgy pop music transports me into a world where I am free of my silly teenage problems, and seeing them live means I can escape not only emotionally, but physically.  The 1975 has been the soundtrack to my adolescence, some of the most challenging and confusing times of my life, and for that I couldn’t be more grateful.

Levitation 2016: Photo & Gif Diary

Words and gifs by Alex Westfall

I traveled to Austin, Texas at the end of April for Levitation (formerly known as Austin Psych Fest). When my plane landed, my friends and I found out that the ENTIRE event was canceled due to weather at the festival site. Luckily, some of the artists were already in town, and we were able to see some of them play make-up shows in intimate venues around the city. Highlights from the weekend included a semi-surprise DJ set by the boys of Animal Collective at a tiny nightclub, seeing Twin Peaks from atop a stranger’s truck, and watching my best friend surf the crowd for the first time at a King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard show. This version of Levitation was awesome — we got to see some of our absolute fave bands AND explore such a rad city.

Interview: Sofia Wolfson

Interview by Lauren Tepfer

Sofia Wolfson is a 16 year old singer-songwriter from Los Angeles. Her debut album Hunker Down was just released this January and it is absolutely PHENOMENAL. But music isn’t her only extracurricular, by any means! When she’s not songwriting, Sofia’s into exploring museums, scoring films, collecting records and playing at clubs all over LA. I first came across Sofia after reading her piece in the Clover Letter and soon after following her on Spotify, I became absolutely immersed in her musical genius. To get a better idea of Sofia’s vibe, picture this: if HAIM announced that they were in search of a fourth member to join their girl squad, no one would be better to take the spot than Sofia Wolfson! I had the absolute pleasure of chatting with Sofia about her music, inspiration and everything inbetween, so read on to hear her genius!
