Vote for Danielle Look – A diamond in the rough.

We live in a small city, filled with mostly simple, unoriginal and down right lazy media coverage. The same stories are written about the same people, week after week and month after month. I understand that most of us only care about what the local media says while on the toilet or waiting for our Chinese food, but have they really become that comfortable?

Through all the garbage, I do find one local author particularly worth reading. Miss Danielle Look.

Now, before all the haters start mouthing this blog..I will disclosed that Danielle holds the title of Music Editor here at and she also writes for several other media outlets.

That has nothing to do with it.

Let me explain.

You see, Danielle writes about the events that other media outlets are too scared to write about. She writes about the groundbreaking events produced by scenes that are on the rise, not dying scenes filled with angst and frustration. While other bloggers are on assignment at some poorly attended event with ill conceived cultural importance, Danielle is front row for the packed shows that never get any press. Often times, Danielle IS THE PRESS.

From Festival Rave Hippies to Heavy Gunners and beyond, there is no denying that Danielle Look has been OUR champion, OUR warrior, OUR ONLY voice.

We owe her more love than any “well known logo” could ever demand. Her passion, professionalism and simply wonderful skills are unmatched.

That being said. I offer you this.
