CD102.5 and Promowest presented Public Access TV with The Palma Violets, catering the audience to an evening brimming with excessive amounts of sweating and head-banging.

Cassandra Zahran Cassandra Zahran Concert Review: Genevieve (formerly of Company of Thieves)

It’s been a great deal of time since I’ve openly cried at a concert — better yet, a great deal of time since I’ve cried. The tears I experienced during Genevieve’s set on Wednesday were not tears of discouragement, rather tears of delight and pureness. CD102.5FM Radio and Promowest presented the ultimate tear-jerker last night, […]

Cassandra Zahran Cassandra Zahran Concert Review: Delta Spirit

Last Friday, CD102.5FM and Promowest presented the best rock show I’ve seen in ages. It was an evening overwhelmed with emotion, rock ‘n roll and an abundance of energy.

Cassandra Zahran Cassandra Zahran Concert Review: Mutual Benefit

You know that ending scene from How the Grinch Stole Christmas, where the Grinch realizes love does exist, after making the Who’s of Whoville experience such heartache?
