Another week of winter is in the books and with it, plenty of metal—both live and otherwise—to keep you warm. Huddle up and thaw those hands beside the hellfire.
Tonight, A/D/O/ kicks off their year-long seminar series, called Homo Sapiens, I Hear You. Say what? Right, ok, so: A/D/O/ is that large corner space on Norman Avenue. Oh yeah, Norman, the restaurant! Well, yes, that’s part of it. But it’s also a center for designers, a start-up incubator, and an open community workspace. And […]
Dan Bejar’s latest Destroyer album, Ken, sailed into 9th place in our top 25 albums of 2017 list, and deservedly so, we said: Following the bombastic and dreary Poison Season we’re happy to report that Destroyer’s Ken is a fantastic rebound. Most reminiscent of 2011’s Kaputt, Ken is yet another strange, sax-filled (and-sex-filled) journey through 80s synth-pop. Where a lesser artist would simply rehash a […]
Happy New Year, my little rave cats! I’m sure you assumed as much, but I took a blog break over the holidays to rack up on rest and quality time with the fam. Then, like a fucking warrior princess, I dragged my ass out in arctic temperatures for three days straight over NYE weekend in […]
Welcome to a new year of This One Goes to Eleven, everyone. It’s business as usual, only with the prospect of instantaneous human incineration tossing some much-needed excitement into the mix. So with that mind, let’s get 2018 started before it suddenly ends.
Holy shit, we made it! I honestly didn’t think we’d survive 2017, but love has prevailed.

Photo Credit: Julian Cassidy, BangOn!NYC Time + Space 2016 And just like that, another year has passed. I believe we’ll learn how to look back on 2017 with less disdain, but for right now, we’re still very raw. This year was shocking, emotional and downright frightening at times, but it was also inspiring, enlightening and […]
Greetings! Apologies for the post-thanksgiving-lull in this series, you may also be trying to get over. Before we get to all the end-of-year lists we’ve still got some time to enjoy the present moment and get to some shows (we can still do that all the time anyway, but our list is excellent, I promise).
If you prefer Silent Night, Deadly Night, Black Christmas, and the BBC’s A Ghost Story for Christmas to Love Actually, head over to Film Noir Cinema next Tuesday. They’re hosting a book release party for Yuletide Terror: Christmas Horror on Film and Television where contributors will be discussing Christmas horror films: long-standing traditions have found […]
