Walk the Moon’s hit single is the definition of ubiquitous in Dallas — even going as far as getting radio play on a country station despite its very synth pop sound. So it was no surprise when the band’s upcoming tour date at House of Blues sold out so quickly that tour promoters hastily found a slightly larger venue, South Side Ballroom, to hold the throngs of eager fans decked out in their face paint and Coachella-esque headbands.

I’ve really got nothing against “Happy,” Billboard’s certified No. 1 song of the calendar year 2014. Hell, it was played at my wedding reception, because, let’s be honest – preventing that from happening at any 2014 wedding reception would’ve been damn near impossible. But – just ballparking the number here – there were probably about […]

Kevin Smith’s “Tusk” is the epitome of an amusing joke that goes on for too long. Worse than that, it’s the sort of joke that doesn’t know what sort of gag it wants to be.

Ever since I was little my passion has been for movies. I stayed up late building blanket forts around our console TV and watched movies in my own private theater.

His upcoming movie, “Brasslands” manages to perfectly combine his passion for Balkans brass music with my passion for films.

Named a 2013 Artist to Watch by Billboard and MTV, Robert DeLong has taken the music scene by storm since releasing his debut album, Just Movement, in February of this year. He’s already played almost every major music festival in the U.S. (including Coachella and multiple shows at SXSW) and completely refined the EDM category by blending dance elements with heavy drum influence, introspective lyrics and manipulated game controllers.

Midcoast Station was fortunate enough to interview Robert between shows and talk touring, signing with Glassnote, and his quest to meet Hulk Hogan.
