Ravens and Chimes at Union Hall

I skipped out on my company’s karaoke night last night to see Ravens and Chimes at Union Hall. As fun as it would have been to see my co-workers drunkenly belt out “Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It” I think I made the right choice. Despite being down a band member Ravens and Chimes put on a […]

Kill My Landlord

I seriously can’t stop listening to The Coup’s “Kill My Landlord” lately. What makes The Coup better than any hip hop group you listen to, and making themselves KRS-ONE type quality? Two reasons: -The sick, original, funk influenced beats.-Socialist, intelligent, humorous lyrics. Rapping against capitalism, police brutality, sexism, and racism definitely make listening to The […]

If you used to it and quit, I highly recommend picking it up again. Here’s to […]

The Weakerthans- Reunion Tour

I finally picked up a copy of the new Weakerthans album Reunion Tour. While their previous album Reconstruction Site covered some distressing territory the rocking music gave the feeling of a joyful decent into darkness. This time out things have gotten heavier.

Ugly Cars and Rockin Tunes

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ilZGn8CPsA] During last week’s episode of the Office I got really excited while watching a commercial for some ugly SUV. “Why am I getting excited watching this car commercial?” I asked myself. Then I noticed that the background music was The Clash’s cover of Pressure Drop. I should mention that in college I played this […]
