Five years! What an amazing journey it has been, and what an amazing thing it is that we get to do! I remember the day vividly. Jerimia, Susanna, and I were sitting in Starbucks. It was autumn, 2012, and we were very serious about what we wanted to do. We knew what we wanted to do, but didn't have any idea what to call it. We tossed around some names, and then as we solidified what exactly it was that we wanted to do, the unanimous answer was: Interviews, Reviews, and Photos for Music. RIMP? No. PRIM? No. MIRP? And we all started laughing, and knew that was the name.
Some people call it MIRP, some call it the M.I.R.P., some call it "mirp mirp mirp"...we don't care! We just know we love what we do!
Starting out as supporting local metal, MIRP evolved into covering all genres of music, and cover it we have. Metal, rock, pop, rap, country...it doesn't matter. Good music is good music, and if you come to our town... one or all of us will more than likely be there. We've covered nearly every genre in the past five years: Nickleback, Snoop Dog, Big and Rich, Vanilla Ice, Slipknot., Boston, John Mayer, Demi Lovato, and Body Count, just to name a few. (check out our "interview," 'review", or "photo" tabs to see more).
We come for the first band and stay to the end. We buy tickets and we buy merch. We write about you, shoot you, promote you, interview you, review you, and celebrate you.
Please join us on January 6th at Rock Hard PDX at 9:00 PM, as we celebrate MIRP's fifth year of supporting music.
We have an excellent line up with: The Desolate, Vintersea, Von Doom, and the Brandon Sills Project.
We are excited and humbled as we embark on 2018, with surprises up our sleeves, and genuine love for music in our hearts.
