Thanks for visiting thesunnysideisup! If you’re looking for some new music and don’t want to spend the time looking, then you’ve come to the right place. I post playlists, write concert reviews, and occasionally rant about anything from being cursed at a Marilyn Manson concert to being dropped while crowd surfing.
I’ve never understood people who don’t connect with music. It would be like not knowing a language everyone else speaks, or not being invited to a party that everyone else is going to.
Perhaps it’s because the music I listened to growing up ranged from The Beatles to Bonnie Raitt to Hanson to Tupac, but I believe that every genre of music offers something to every listener, given that they have an open mind. We all have our preferences, of course, but my inability to listen to a Country song a la “Achy Breaky Heart” does not prevent me from enjoying “Wayfaring Stranger” or a little Rascal Flatts now and then.
Per this philosophy, my hope for thesunnysideisup is that you can come here and find something you didn’t expect to like. It’s a place where I hope all who visit will have an open mind and try something new.
The point is to give everything a chance! So put on those headphones and broaden your horizons. Your future favorite artists will thank you for it.
