Bushwick Daily has provided a very helpful public service by polling their readers about, what else, SEX! (It is Valentine’s Day after all.)

From the goat altars of satanic black metal to the fire-licked peaks of every tech-death album cover ever, we imagined an underworld ascended—a dark fantasy dragged into the light. Now that we are living it on a day-to-day (and executive-order-to-executive-order basis), however, it’s safe to say we got more than we bargained for. So sorry earth. Our bad.

Retire those cardboard signs for a night or two and lend your local (and non-local) musicians an ear! Besides, your arms deserve a break, don’t they? So do your nerves. The good news is you can still unwind without sacrificing that fighting spirit. [Read more…]
