Show Review & Interview: Mischief Brew @ Sunnyvale Brooklyn (1.30.16)

When you hear that Mischief Brew will perform in your town, you make sure you get your ass to that show, even if you were riding in the back of an ambulance that same morning. I spent the better part of that Saturday getting my mom to the hospital, who came down with some severe viral infection, and waiting around as doctors and nurses performed tests and ultrasounds. It didn’t stop me from seeing one of my favorite bands, and I decided I was taking up too much space in the emergency room. I knew I had to go and see Mischief Brew, just to simply get me out of those hospital blues.

Bryan McPherson debuts video for “Born On A Highway”

Boston native, California-based singer/songwriter Bryan McPherson  has unveiled the latest music video for a track from his recent album, “Wedgewood.” The track is called “Born On A Highway,” and you can check out the video below. The bulk of it was filmed in and around Los Angeles, specifically the LA River. Works pretty well for the song, if you ask us (and since you’re reading this, you did!).

I’ve been somewhat shamelessly reminding people that McPherson is presently touring the Pacific Northwest in support of his latest (and undeniably greatest) album, “Wedgewood,” which was self-released on his OFD Records earlier this year; stream/buy it here. It was #2 on my year-end best album list. While you’re at it here’s the sitdown we did with McPherson in advance of that album.
