"If music was the food of love, then I'd be a fat, romantic slob."
Truer words were never spoken.
Music is everything.
Putting your fave tunes on loud and pretending your in your own music video is the actual best...
everyone else does that too, right?
Anyhoo, music is life, and we're bringing a whole ton of it to you right now. Make your soundtrack to summer today, see artists you love, bands you've never heard of, step outside of your usual genre, and immerse yourself in the strongest form of magic, music.
