I’ve Been Published!

 Written by    December 7, 2012

And not just in this blog–a concert review I wrote earlier this week has been published in UWeekly, an independent newspaper not affiliated with OSU, but that is distributed around campus. And the editor really liked it, so I’m going to be writing more concert reviews for them in the future!

I reviewed the Smashing Pumpkins concert this past week. They came to the Newport on Tuesday, December 4th, and they. were. AWESOME!

You can read my review here:


I’m really thankful for all the positive feedback I’ve gotten. UWeekly’s editor said it was great for a first review, and she only had to make very minimal edits. My dad said the review was “artistic in itself” (although since he’s my dad, I think he may be a little biased). A friend who read it said it made him wish he’d gone to the concert, too. And that was what I was hoping to convey–that it was a fantastic show, and I’ve seen the Smashing Pumpkins before, so I had something to compare it to. Another friend said she could tell that it was written from a real fan’s perspective, and that’s very true too–I’ve loved the Smashing Pumpkins since middle school.

If you go to YouTube and search “smashing pumpkins newport 2012” you’ll come across lots of videos taken at the show. Here are a few photos I took:

I love the lighting here!

I’m really looking forward to writing more concert reviews next semester. I’ll be sure to post the links to them here!
