Well if you actually followed the site, you may have noticed I haven’t posted anything in a while. I ran Get Stoked On Music on and off for a few years, but it’s finally time to lay the blog to rest. I don’t have the will to post on here anymore and there’s enough blogs on tumblr providing similar content.
This isn’t to say I’m done writing or caring about music. I’ve been working with idobi for a few years now and I’m going to be committing all my time to them. idobi is more-so known for covering pop punk/pop rock bands, but I’ll be sure to push some different genres into the site. We have a lot of exciting things coming up on both the site and the radio station, and I hope you’ll all check it out.
Thanks to the bands, labels, and fans who ever took time to read or like anything on here.
Here’s to moving on!
It looks like the Skate And Surf Festival will be returning this summer. The last installment of the festival happened in 2004 in Asbury Park, NJ before changing over to the Bamboozle Festival in 2005. We’ll keep you updated as more information emerges.
