Now you don’t see that every day!! Thanks to Winter Storm Benji hitting the deep South this week, the ‘Welcome To Florida Sign’ in the Northwest Part of our state had a light dusting of snow on it!

As you can see in the video below, lead singer Joshua Homme is casually jamming out on stage when he randomly kicks a photographers camera and it hits her in the face?! The photographer, Chelsea Lauren, had to be treated in the ER for her injuries but will be okay. The next day Homme issued two separate apologies via Twitter making it clear he was ‘a total dick’. Initially he had said he thought that he was kicking equipment and NOT  a person but seems to be steering away from that response no

Sam talks NBT with Barns Courtney

  • 11:21 am Wednesday, November 29th, 2017 by Sam

Barns Courtney is going to be one of the must-see sets on Sunday at NBT. He’s an upcoming artist with a truly incredible story. Courtney just released his debut album in September, ‘The Attractions of Youth’, and explained to me that it really tells the story of him coming up from his lowest of lows (being dropped by a label) to his highest and best moments now. How low is low? We’re talking living like a hobo couch surfing in places like abandoned retirement homes! Yeah, he’s got some pretty insane stories.
