SOCCER MOMMY — AKA SOPHIE ALLISON — IS ONE OF Gen Z’s brightest voices, a 25-year-old beacon mining through a familiar world of industry apathy and internal, contradictory forces.

Many of you are no doubt listening to the new Gwen Stefani single and thinking back to when you first heard Tragic Kingdom. Where you were, what you were doing, how long the show Beverly Hills, 90210 could possibly last. Hate to break it to you, ’90s kids, but there are a ton of teenagers listening to the song without a clue that Stefani ever fronted a band, never mind the groundbreaking, genre-fu
Charmed was a groundbreaking show when it premiered on television back in 1998. The magical story of three sister witches—Prue (Shannen Doherty), Piper (Holly Marie Combs) and Phoebe (Alyssa Milano) Halliwell—and how they kicked demon ass on a daily basis was a major hit.
Riot Fest are unleashing plenty of announcements today including the daily schedule and the Late Night shows. Single-day tickets are also now on sale.
