ALBUM REVIEW: Poppy

ALBUM REVIEW: Poppy

If were confused a few years ago by Youtube persona, Poppy, then you’re about to get even more confused. I could go into the whole backstory about this intriguing pop figure, but there is far too much to cover so I’m just going to touch on her latest album release, “I Disagree.” I urge you to look into her career afterwards, though, because it is very interesting.

WANTED: 'Brand New Eyes' 10 Year Anniversary Tour

2009 was quite a year for music. Recently, bands like Mayday Parade & All Time Low are announcing dates to celebrate 10 years of their albums’ releases. This got me thinking about other albums that were released in the same year that I would love to see live. In this case— I would die to see live.

September 6 and 7, 2019 marked the fourth annual Sophomore Slump Fest in Durham, North Carolina. This year brought new changes for FBT Entertainment as they made the initial decision to ensure that this year was bigger and better than ever. For the first time, Sophomore Slump Fest was split into two separate days, providing two days of face-shredding, two-stepping, and solidifying the reason as to why fans keep coming back year after year.  The decision to split the festival into two days meant that this year had to have incredible support from its sponsors.
