On Friday, April 11th, London Grammar¬†played a sold out show at Paradise Rock Club. Joined by their opening act, Haerts, both bands definitely made my $15 ticket worth it.

Artists to Watch: Meghan Tonjes

YouTube has always been a source that I count on for new music when I get bored of my iTunes library. About three years ago I discovered the lovely Meghan Tonjes,¬†a Michigan native with the voice of an angel. She’s placed in the singer/songwriter category and currently has three EPs out.
