Every year, my family and friends all email each other and pick their top 10 albums of the year. I wanted to take a crack at this as well, however I will keep it short, as I choose and explain my reasoning behind my top three favorite albums of 2016.

Filed under Cameron Campbell, Opinion, Uncategorized

Where do you go after your twenties are over — when the adolescence fades and you’re stuck managing the pressures of adulthood while holding onto the last breath of your youth? The Menzingers are a band that tries to tackle that very question as the underscoring theme of their new album. The Menzi...

When it comes to  Bruce Springsteen, most people love the wide variety he has laid out over the years. However, the question that divides most fans is “Born to Run” or “Born in the USA?” The two albums were monumental in both Springsteen’s career and Rock ‘n’ Roll history. Each one...

On Feb. 7, I had the pleasure of sitting in one of Winnipeg’s nicest theaters for one of the best rock shows to come through the city in a while. The two bands that played were Frank Turner and The Sleeping Souls and The Arkells. The concert hall stage was set up with all of Frank Turner’s gear, inc...

On Jan. 31, I had the pleasure of making the trek up to Winnipeg to the 110 year-old Burton Cummings Theater to see one of my favorite bands, Hollerado, and a band new to me, The Sam Roberts Band. Upon walking into the theater, we found the merch table of Hollerado. We were surprisingly greeted by N...

“She said always remember, never to trust me. She said that the first night that she met me. She said there’s going to come a time where I’m going to have to go, with whoever’s going to get me the highest” Craig Finn, front man for the band The Hold Steady sings this lyric to open up they’re...

The Twin Cities have always been a hot bed for music of all genres. The city’s scene has created musicians such as Doomtree, Soul Asylum, The Hold Steady, and of course, Prince. There is a stereotype that comes with your identity if you are from Minnesota. It is believed that musically we only listen...

New Politics sold-out

Filed under Cameron Campbell, Cameron's Corner, Opinion

In the music world today, sometimes it is hard to find a band that’s unique and special. It’s even harder to find a band that fuses two genres of music together and does it well. In 2009, a band called New Politics from Copenhagen, Denmark formed and released their first full length album (self-titled)...

Pat the Bunny, “Probably Nothing Possibly Everything”

It’s hard to go wrong with a musician who refers to himself as “Pat the Bunny.”  The man behind this intriguing stage name is folk punk musician Pat Schneeweis. Pat, best known as Pat the Bunny, got his start playing folk punk in Arizona playing random house parties and on the street. Folk...

Hollerado, the most interesting little band

Filed under Cameron Campbell, Opinion

In my opinion, Hollerado is by far the most interesting small venue band to come out of Canada in awhile. Founded in 2007 by four men from Ottawa, Ontario, the band would soon embark on a very attention-grabbing approach to the music world. In 2007 the band released their first full-length album, “R...

The Ghost Inside, still swinging

Filed under Cameron Campbell, Opinion

Some people may say that hardcore music is an acquired taste. This riff heavy, aggressive genre is something that may turn a lot of people away before ever taking a chance to listen to the lyrics beneath the surface. However, for me, there is one band in particular that really steps away from the gene...
