Here’s this week’s edition of #TBT.
This is husband/wife folk punk duo Destroy Nate Allen. They played a set at the Creation Station stage and got everybody singing and clapping along. Yes, you can hear me singing along in the background to their ode to cooking. Remember, you have to follow the recipe the first time that you do it!
Here’s a video dating back to 2014.
This is Rockford-based artist Jesse Fox covering folk duo Vandaveer’s song “Spite”. He plays it on guitar while also using a kick pedal for the beat.
Here’s a blast from 2012!
This set of pictures involves my musical friends Lauryn Peacock and Kevin Schlereth touring and playing a house show up in Crystal Lake. I thought it was awesome since I used to live about 20 minutes away from that town, so it was easy to get to, and I had a great time at this small acoustic setting.
Check out both artists!
Here’s a blast from the past. I can’t believe it’s been 9 years since I’ve seen this concert in Libertyville, Illinois.
This is Mira Mira who are a chamber rock band. They did an unplugged set at an ice cream shop. They did a bunch of originals, but I remember them covering “Sweet Child of Mine” by Guns and Roses where the lead singer/pianist did the guitar solo on a melodica as seen in this mosaic.
Here’s a Throwback Thursday video!
I really miss Cornerstone. Here’s my friend Erik AKA Self Proclaimed Narcissist performing at the final Cornerstone ever back in 2012 with his song Surgical Extraction.

Here’s something new for Throwback Thursday.
I’ll be showing some old photo projects from time to time. These pictures are from 2008. This features Ryan Powers back when he was a solo artist. Nowadays, he’s the lead singer of the band Ryan Powers & The Secret Weapons. I had a different camera back then with less megapixels, but I feel like they still hold up with some of the black and white effects I added.

Here’s this week’s Throwback video!
Steve Barnes and fellow musician Zach Draper were busking right outside of Rediscover Records with some acoustic tunes. They both covered a Dylan tune as I filmed them right outside the shop.
