The coming March Gnocchi del 29 is a collaboration with the Goddamn Cobras and featuring photographs by their […]
Wordless music that screams louder than Slayer’s “Angel of Death”. Controlled Bleeding and Zilmrah live at the Silent Barn last night.

This past Friday I had the pleasure of attending the sold out Jeff Buckley Tribute Show at The Knitting Factory which was curated by legendary guitarist Gary Lucas.
