  Music Photo by Melissa Bobbitt I just returned from an epic Pacific Northwest vacation with friends, and many wonderful memories were etched into our minds. But with any adventure, the music that accompanied us was just as important as any sightseeing we did. Music can transport us right back to those magical places we never want to leave. Or it can remind us of hysterical moments - none of us can get Ludacris' "Pussy Poppin'"... READ MORE

  News We were filming some pre-show footage of Gonjasufi before he headlined Low End Theory at The Airliner. The time came to take him to the venue. It was about 11PM on a lovely night and everyone's feeling right. We get in our ride and meet 'sufi at his car so he can hop in with us.

  News "What do you love about music?" "To begin with ... everything." It might be cliche to romanticize the "Almost Famous" decrees about music, but there's an inherent truth to that film. William Miller and the Band-Aids got it. I might be a entertainment journalist, but sometimes my own words fail me when showing my appreciation for the medium. My name is Melissa Bobbitt, and I've been a music addict from day one. And there's no... READ MORE
