Summer is officially OVER everyone, get over it. Autumn is upon us, time to break out the jackets and embrace more comfortable temperatures (who am I kidding, this might be the warmest September on record). Don’t forget it’s Brooklyn Pour this weekend as well, so you can celebrate/commiserate the change of seasons to your heart’s content. The pope is in […]
It seems like a lot of the local news is on a bit of a downer this week, neighbourhood bars are closing while Starbucks gets an alcohol licence, and then of course, there is this; it’s enough to make you question humanity. However, just like the fact that we’re actually living in the most peaceful time in human history is a hard […]
Looks like we’re in for a rainy weekend in parts, but that’s ok as you can spend plenty of time indoors at various concerts. If we don’t have anything blue (skies) then at least I can recommend something old, something new, and something borrowed, in this week’s column.

This wretched month will finally come to an end by the time the weekend is out, but February does leave us a nice parting gift in the form of some fantastic shows that should get you out of whatever hopefully warm abode you call home.
Congratulations, everyone, we survived another week. Yeah, great, go us. In a bid to winnow the abominable chasm of nihilism from the wonderful glee of aural orgasm, here are some recommendations for the weekend.
After the 2014 massacre which saw the loss of Death By Audio, 285 Kent, Glasslands and many more, Cake Shop is now my favourite concert venue in New York. With good sound, a welcoming vibe and mercifully bad phone reception downstairs which means less people disappearing up their own devices, there’s just always been something […]
+++NOT SAFE FOR WORK+++NOT SAFE FOR WORK+++NOT SAFE FOR WORK+++ On Friday night Providence, RI noise rock band Tinsel Teeth brought their very own brand of punk ruckus to the basement of Cake Shop. Please be advised that the below video edit of the set’s last 10 minutes contains what some might consider STRONG NUDITY. […]
