VBR-006.png

Our good friend Michele Stephens swings through to chat about tour PR, the lifeblood of her career in music. As a tour publicity pro at Epitaph Records, she lends her expertise and drops some hints about what not to do when trying to cover the alternative music scene's biggest roaming festival, Warped Tour. Naturally there is some talk about Troye Sivan, My Chemical Romance, and Cute Is What We Aim For to be had, for Michele is a pop lover through and through.

03: 'An Arms Length Away From Avril Lavigne', with guest Maria Gironas

It is round three of the show, and my pal Maria Gironas has joined me to chit the chat. First, we talk about her gigs with various outlets and then dig into her experience in music PR. Tears fall as we mourn the impending loss of Yellowcard and Blink's magic as well. Warped Tour comes up even though we have no idea who is on the tour this year. Grab your liquor of choice, friends and drink up whenever 'Taylor Swift' is said aloud.
