COMICS!!!

Aquarian Beauty: click here! The Perry Bible Fellowship is one of those rare finds….like a quartz crystal in your driveway that you keep in the box under your bed but bring out every night and caress it and say “my precious” over and over again. Yeah, kinda like that. Nicholas Gurewitch is the creator of […]

Broken Social Scene

Special guest blogger- Hot Pants Askance: Broken Social Scene is part of a wave of massive Canadian bands that have attained some sort of popularity in the US recently. What I must inform you, my fellow patriots, is that these bands–many with rosters bigger than many football teams (well, at least the soccer kind of […]

Before there was rock, there was Bach

silverunity: Today, March 21st is the official birthday of punk rock’s most influential person… J.S Bach. Way before the days of ska and punk (centuries actually), Bach was around, doing what he does best, which would be bringing the noise straight to 16th century Europe. Don’t believe he influenced ska/punk music? Check out the Bach […]

Ghost Mice

Sasha: Ghost Mice is a new favorite of mine. The Bloomington Indiana band consists of Chris Clavin, Hanna Jones and occasionally Pascal Benvenuti. When I first started reading up on Ghost Mice they reminded me of the Evens, they play acoustic punk shows with a strong DIY ethic. I love the way they sing every […]

Modest Mouse

Sasha:I know everyone else is also blogging about the new Modest Mouse but since I’ve been listening to it a lot I thought I’d throw my hat into the ring too. I think it’s great, it’s great music to walk or drive to, it makes me feel like I’m propelling myself forward with a purpose. […]

Against All Authority

silverunity:After waiting nearly 6 years, I finally got to see Against All Authority last night, and let me say, I can’t even begin to describe the sheer awesomeness of the punk ska show. I was a little afraid they’d only play songs off of “The Restoration Of Chaos And Disorder” (their newest cd), which I […]

So go ahead, pretend you’re irish for a bit and go do a jig while kissing the Blarney Stone or something.

Strike Anywhere – Dead FM

silverunity: Ahh… Strike Anywhere… Richmond’s finest band. Their newest album (Dead FM) received a decent amount of criticism for not being as heavy as their previous releases (they focus a lot on harmonizing vocals and melodies), however, I think that this is one of their strongest albums (that means a lot, on account that I’m […]

Iron & Wine

Sasha: The weather around here has been so nice and balmy for some reason it’s got me going on an Iron & Wine kick. Iron & Wine is yet another bearded one man band, the man being Sam Beam. The name was taken from a dietary supplement named “Beef Iron & Wine” Beam saw in […]

Freygolo

silverunity: For some reason, pi day reminds me of France. I don’t know why, and there really isn’t any connection, but pi day and France seems to go hand in hand like peanut butter and pickles. In honor of this, Freygolo is my band of the day. Freygolo is a French ska punk band (lyrics […]
