Hi, I'm Sarasvati! I reblog things about bands I like. Sometimes I post pictures of my records or a show I attended. I live in Gainesville and FEST is my favorite time of year.

POZ Riot Fest Toronto: Our Must-See Bands And Artists (Day One)



Riot Fest Toronto kicks off this weekend, and PropertyOfZack is gearing up for a weekend of fun, and we hope many of you are too. Just in case you haven’t put together your schedule, we thought it’d be a great idea to put together a list of POZ’s Must See Bands And Artists that will be gracing the stage this weekend in Toronto. Reblog and let us know who we need to see while we’re at the first day of Riot this weekend as well!


After a short summer run with Gates and Have Mercy, Pentimento played alongside Weezer and Brand New at Buffalo’s Edgefest, but the best is yet to come for this Buffalo four-piece, as Riot Fest Toronto promises to be their biggest show to date.  With Mike Hansen’s genuine lyrics and Jeramiah Pauly’s heartfelt delivery, it will be no surprise when the band’s honest intentions win over most, if not all, of Downsview Park on the first day of Riot Fest Toronto.


Manchester Orchestra
Just emerging from the aftermath of Cope, their heaviest and most lyrically biting album to date, Manchester Orchestra is an easy go-to when deciding which bands to squeeze into your Riot Fest Toronto schedule.  Andy Hull’s delicate, but passionate vocals are touching almost to the point of tears and his cohorts provide a crashing sense of catharsis in his wake, making Manchester Orchestra a true must see.


It’s not easy to go twelve years without releasing a full-length album while still remaining relevant, but Glassjaw has somehow managed to do just that. The Long Island post-hardcore legends remain ominously allusive, with rare and sporadic festival appearances being their only live performances over the past few years.  With this in mind, seeing Glassjaw should be a top priority for all of those in attendance at Riot Fest Toronto.

New Music: You’ll Never See Me Again — Adele

And Adele is back with another melancholic, soulful, and smokey song. Just when I was wondering if Adele was going to be doing more music, this showed up the other day. “You’ll never see me again” is like the classy, grown-up, “I’m going to drink a martini to you” version of “Someone Like You.” Adele’s sultry voice and heavy lyrics evoke such sadness, while at the same time embodying an empowering agency: You messed up and I’m over this all, so you’ll never see me again. Now the question is, when will her next album be out? Time will only tell.





  • Conor Murphy - Foxing
  • Erik Czaja - Dowsing
  • Evan Weiss - Into it. Over it.
