Bishop Briggs Crosses Off A Bucket List Item In Phoenix

The dynamic songstress graced the stage of the Van Buren in Phoenix, Arizona. It was a night to remember for everyone in the room.


After the release of her first studio album "Church of Scars" in April of this year, it became clear that singer/songwriter Bishop Briggs would be a force to reckon with in the alternative rock scene and her performance this past weekend at Phoenix, Arizona's Van Buren proved no different. As a bucket list venue for Briggs and a hometown show for drummer Beaux Evans, the stage was radiating with contagious energy and badass music.

The powerhouse singer has already racked up an impressive resume: touring alongside Coldplay, releasing a single with Cold War Kids, hitting Billboard charts with "River," and landing spots at festivals from KROQ to Coachella but throughout it all, there is still a resounding humbleness that comes across when she's on stage. There's no question though that, with enough talent to fill any room, she deserves every ounce of recognition she receives.

Quite literally running laps across the stage, stomping to the drum kicks, and attacking lyrics with every fiber of her body until she's out of breath between songs. Even with the human moment of forgetting the lyrics to "White Flag," Bishop Briggs puts every part of her heart and soul into a performance.

Of course, fan favorites like "Wild Horses" and "River" made their way into the rotation of the set, but the standout moment came from the introduction of several new songs both off the album and some that have yet to be released.

Before performing "Let Me Out" a currently unreleased single, Briggs prepped the audience with the meaning: after being in a relationship that made her feel as if her opinions hadn't mattered and her importance as a person was being diminished, she decided to run. The speech continued "your opinions matter. But" pause for effect "But, there is a little asterisk there. And it's a small asterisk but it's an important one. Your opinion matter unless you're homophobic, transphobic, xenophobic, sexist, or racist. Alright, let's play some music."

With both the striking power and relatable vulnerability of an artist achieving their dreams, Briggs will be crossing off bucket list venues for years to come and enjoying plenty of wine glasses filled with M&Ms.;

"Church of Scars" is available everywhere music is sold. Bishop Briggs will continue to tour across North America throughout September. Keep up with her latest news at

6 Places in New York City Every "Friends" Fan Needs to Visit

Grab a cup of coffee at Central Park.

As a Friends fanatic myself, I often wonder about the places in New York City featured in the various episodes and whether I could actually visit them. Most of them are fictional or no longer exist, but there are a few places you can go to reminisce about your favorite Friends moments. So, here are 6 places in New York City you definitely need to visit as a Friends fan.

1. The Apartment Building, Obviously

The building used for the exterior shot of the apartments in Friends is real, and is located at 90 Bedford Street at the corner of Grove Street in Greenwich Village. It's an obvious must-see.

2. The Pullitzer Fountain

This is the fountain that the friends danced around in for the iconic theme song, and it's located right in Central Park.

3. Bloomingdale's

This is the department where Rachel worked before she moved on to Ralph Lauren, where she met Joshua, and where she started her career in fashion.

4. The Plaza Hotel

This is where Monica and Chandler celebrated their engagement in The One WIth Monica's Thunder, and is actually really gorgeous.

5. The Central Perk Replica

While Central Perk isn't a real coffee shop, a pop-up replica opened up in 2014 on Lafayette Street and it's definitely a must-visit.

6. Chandler's Office

The fictional Chandler works in the real Solow Building, located on West 57th street.

Hannah B. Named The Next Bachelorette: Get Excited!!

Roll Tide.


On the season finale of the hit reality TV show 'The Bachelor' Chris Harrison announced the new Bachelorette to be Hannah Brown, affectionately referred to as "Hannah Beast." Hannah made it far in Colton's season of the Bachelor, but hit some bumps along the way. She was involved in serious drama with costar and fellow pageant competitor Caelynn. Not only is Hannah B. known for drama and tears, she is also known for her awkward and often uncomfortable behavior around the cameras. And let's not forget the most awkward first date and toast of all time...Roll Tide!

Despite her awkward and quirky personality, I think the Alabama native is truly a sweetheart. She cannot be judged based on the controversy that took place between her and Caelynn because no one knows the full truth of the story. In my opinion, no one was completely innocent in their "cat fight" but the way in which each girl handled themselves in the resolution of this drama was mature and, quite frankly, impressive. I think Hannah B's season will be full of more tears and could potentially be very uncomfortable to watch at some moments, but at the end of the say, Hannah B. deserves to find love just like any other 'Bachelor' hopeful. It will definitely be an interesting season to watch, so get excited!!
