Rupert Hudson

Yes, I was named after famous british polar bear Rupert. In fact, I was named after a cat that was named after that cartoon bear. This is exactly the reason why I’d have to say an orange cat is my spirit animal. Though, it’s kind of more like this cat is my spirit goddess. My spirit animal is a bit more like a grizzly duck, which is a grizzly bear with a duck’s beak. Two reasons: 1) When I wake up I am angry and grumble a lot, like a grizzly bear but once I wake up I am (usually) friendly and I quack a lot, and 2) I own a sweater with a grizzly bear on it and one with a duck on it. I am obviously obsessed with music and everything to do with music. I have been to over 80 concerts, I am in a band called One Two Skidoo, and I also co-host a radio show of that same name on WUSC. I was born in a country called London (I would say England, but you Americans seem to be set on the fact that England is only London). I was actually born in Brighton, England, but I don’t wanna confuse you too much so we’ll say I’m from London. I then moved to a super freezing area of Canada. You’re probably thinking “but all of Canada is super freezing!”. That’s not true. Well, kind of not true. I do that school thing at the University of South Carolina, and I write about music on this website, obviously. David Stringer is my hero.

Wow, what a show. Before the show, a man in the crowd said to me “you’re going to feel things you’ve never felt in your life”, referring to the show I was about to watch. While I am not sure that I felt new emotions, I did have a brilliant time at the show. When […]

“That show made me feel like I was having the best seizure of my life” – Pedro Lopezdevictoria regarding last Friday’s Reptar show in Athens, GA. I would have to wholeheartedly agree with that statement and also add that after the show, I was covered in half of Athens’ sweat. The stench is probably never […]

Show Review: Beach House – Charleston, SC

Written by on 2012/05/08 in News with 0 Comments

Coming into this show I was a little skeptical of how Beach House’s sound was going to pan out in a live setting. Their albums are the type of music that I study to or put on when I just want some quiet music playing in the background. It can always be dangerous for bands […]

So a couple weeks ago I posted an article about Lollapalooza announcing their lineup and some readers got angry because it was not relevant to South Carolina. Well, here’s something even further away than Chicago. It’s in England. Haters come hate. I am going to England this summer to do some research and I will […]
