Humans of Bunbury: A Portrait Series

Photos and words by Samantha Skapin When you attend a three day music festival, the festival grounds start to feel like it's own little world.

That moment a certain Clique leader does karaoke of his own song…

We're not one to do click-bait stuff normally, but we couldn't pass this up. Next month is going to be wild in Tuned Up's hometown. Because it's Twenty One Pilots' Tour De Columbus.

THE ONGOING CONCEPT CONCERT PREVIEW

PREVIEW: this ain’t the Hunger Games, but there’s a cornucopia waiting at a pizza pub

We at Tuned Up like throwing shows to highlight the kinds of music we talk about on the blog. This is the first event we are a part of in 2016 - Jan 3rd (6PM). It's sure to be an eclectic evening in a place that not everyone thinks as eclectic. But hey! Pizza! And friends! And there's no cover. Here are our thoughts on the ...
