In a Brooklyn music scene crusted shut with black metal char, Mountain God are something of a throwback—a lead-fisted sludge band lumbering along in the hoof prints of Unearthly Trance and Serpentine Path before them.

Let’s start with some good news, Shea Stadium reached their kickstarter goal in just a few hours yesterday. Why stop there though, you can continue to donate here. The last few years have been more than hard for DIY venues but the rally of support yesterday was really quite something, and long may it continue. […]

The Relix Live Music Conference is billed as “a conference for professionals in the live music industry, designed to shed light on the fast-paced and ever-changing live music business.” For one day only, on Wednesday May 10th, a full line-up of panels and discussions will take place at Brooklyn Bowl, including a presentation on Technology […]
