The Weakerthans at Webster Hall

I almost didn’t make it into Webster Hall last night to see the Weakerthans. I forgot my ID and had to convince the bouncer that yes, I am definitely older than 16. Thankfully that worked otherwise I might have tried to scale the walls batman-style. Oh man, what a show. The band played a fantastic […]

Stukas Over Disneyland

Nazis? Disneyland? Say it ain’t so! I instantly fell in love with The Dickies “Stukas Over Disneyland” the first time I listened through. The Dickies used to open for the Ramones, and the influences are evident. However, the so-cal Dickies definitely have a strong(er) Beach Boys vibe in a lot of their songs (check out […]

Don’t Change Your Clocks!

Hey guys, just a heads up. While the last Sunday in October is usually the day to change clocks back for Daylight Saving Time, because of Bush’s Energy Policy Act of 2005 the date has been changed to the first Sunday in November. There are plenty of good ways to protest the Bush presidency but […]

The New Pornographers at Webster Hall

I wasn’t off the wall excited about seeing the New Pornographers on Thursday last week because I had just seen them this summer, I had kind forgotten I had tickets to the show and the event was eclipsed by the excitement of having my friend Andy come visit me. So I got Webster completely unprepared […]

Ravens & Chimes- Reichenbach Falls

Ever since their Union Hall show I’ve been listening to Ravens & Chimes debut album Reichenbach Falls. In alot of ways it’s what I’ve been looking for all year. Initially I heard a nice, if somewhat generic indie-pop band. R&C; are in the Arcade Fire school of thought, using every instrument they can find. This […]

JeKKeL – Ping Pong Warriors

I was internerding around a couple weeks ago reading about Ping Pong when I happened across the album Ping Pong Warriors by the west coast pop punk band JeKKeL. It was a good find. The album is 85% catchy hooks and sing along choruses (the other 15% is a little emo for me). In any […]

Friends

Well, the updates around these parts have been scarcer than a new Streetlight Manifesto new release… oh wait, I can’t use that line anymore. Damn. Anyway, yours truly just got back from his good ole’ college town (where the housewives all met.) Besides being dragged to the homecoming concert of Eve6, it was a pretty […]
