About Nicole

Nicole’s job as a music buyer is just one reason we want to steal her iPod. Her love of hip-hop and show tunes (but not hip-hop show tunes) combined with her inventive dance moves (sexy robot, anyone?) and amazing voice also make this secretly shy Buffalo native a karaoke genius. With a love of Korean food, RuPaul and bargain shopping, you never know what awesome direction a conversation with Nicole may take. And she has an amazingly cute dog whose name is Megabite!

After the critical and commercial success of(…)

Wild Beasts Somehow Get More Amazing With New Video

I must say – I would not have imagined Wild Beasts making a video like this, but I’m so glad they did. Inspired by Talking Heads, they took to the hills, donned some intense outfits and performed semi-robotic dance moves to Present Tense banger “A Simple Beautiful Truth” and of course, it’s awesome. Also, side(…)

Why Was I Not Invited to Women of Soul at The White House?

Why Was I Not Invited to Women of Soul at The White House?

When flipping through channels on a rainy Monday night, I did not expect to encounter life-altering greatness. But, that’s exactly what happened when I came across WOMEN OF SOUL: IN PERFORMANCE AT THE WHITE HOUSE – starring Patti Labelle, Janelle Monae, Aretha Franklin, Jill Scott, Ariana Grande and even more! I guess my invite from(…)
