OK folks, after a two-week hiatus, I’m back and the same flake as ever. But don’t worry, there’s a solid slate of new releases and a full Halloween week of shows to help make up for my heavy metal infidelity. Take me back won’t you, please? WHAT TO HEAR: First up this week are Oakland […]
Looks like we’re in for a mostly pleasant weekend weather-wise, and there might not be too many of those left for the next few months, so make the most of it. This week it’s all about tried-and-tested excellent acts.
This is not a huge surprise, given their troubled history with their landlord, but this really sucks. Brooklyn Bazaar has a handful of shows and events slotted before they shutdown on November 30, so be sure to swing by and give them some love. WE’RE OUT (AGAIN) After 3 years and thousands of shows, events, […]
Philly quartet Sheer Mag put out their excellent new album, A Distant Call in August and those with a hankering for Thin Lizzy-esque rock should listen to it at your nearest convenience (or inconvenience, even). Produced by Arthur Rizk, the record nails a classic sound and captures the band at their most accomplished to date, while their previous efforts […]
It’s always sad to hear of impending venue closures like Brooklyn Bazaar, come to think of it we’re almost at the 5-year anniversary of Vice media ripping Death By Audio out of our still beating hearts (still not over it). Anyway, let’s try to be a bit more positive with these excellent shows…

The mastermind behind these marathon parties is techno visionary and tastemaker Damian Lazarus. Get Lost […]
Welcome to October, folks. This is a 21+ maturity show, so if you call it spooky szn, please see yourself out. WHAT TO HEAR: This week is owned by Arizona death metal unit Gatecreeper, who return after a three-year vision quest with their sophomore full length (and long-awaited follow-up to 2016’s Sonoran Deprivation), Deserted (Relapse). […]
We’re back after a brief west-coast break – yes the weather was lovely, yes the tacos were great. Tacos can only bring so much joy though and the serious business of attending concerts must go on.
It’s hard to believe, but the last release week of September is already upon us. Next week is October and the week after that, 2050. But thankfully there’s plenty of new noise to help drown out the sound of your life rapidly evaporating around you. WHAT TO HEAR: First up this week is Creeping Death’s […]
There’s a good mix of guitar-based shows this weekend, albeit a very cruel Saturday for my musical tastes in particular. Where are we with that being-in-multiple-places-at-the-same-time technology thing?
