If you’re ever seen Pearl Jam live, there’s a high chance you’ve seen him fall in one way or another. People don’t make a compilation of your falls through the years without it being…

The band Oasis must understand the struggle when it comes to people having to subscribe to the various streaming platforms as they’re offering fans a month long free trial to Paramount+ to encourage them to watch their new documentary which highlights the band’s historic two-night residency at the Knebworth House in England in 1996.From now…

FAR OUT MAN! Kinda.

  At this point, we’re all professionals at sitting around. Maybe it’s a skill we can utilize to land a job with NASA? Yyyyep! NASA is looking to hire four people who are willing to pretend to live on MARS for a full year. NASA posted the job on Friday, and they’re accepting applications until September 17th.  The…

Jazzfest postponed for second year in a row due to COVID-19.

For the second year in a row, Jazzfest has been postponed due to COVID-19. Ticketholders should be getting an email soon about the ticket refund and rollover process. WE KNOW, we know!
