Jared Bowers's Profile

Jared Bowers

A former DIY booking dude with a love for under-heard bands and an appreciation for live music (when he can get to a show), Jared's a father of 2 super weird kids, married to an even weirder woman... and he wouldn't have it any other way. Writing about music since high school, he' evangelistic when it comes to the music he loves, friendly with everyone who cares to chat and always looking for the next noodly, off-time and mathy guitar driven band that nobody's ever hear of. He writes about local music and reviews albums as often as he's able.

REVIEW: New Found Glory at Bogart's

If New Found Glory are coming to your town - just go. Get there early, enjoy Be Well and Four Year Strong, and get lost in a 20 year old record that still holds up after all this time. You’ll be happy you did.
