Oppressive humidity appears to be the order of the day at the moment, just in time for a myriad of outdoor shows. Alas, cavorting is always preferable to hopeless ennui. Remember though kids, stay hydrated and wear your earplugs, and after that public service announcement, it’s on with this weekend’s best shows…
With Maryland Deathfest on the way this weekend, some of you are probably a little preoccupied at the moment and I get that. But the best way to prep for a metric ton of metal is with even more metal, so make sure to give this week’s installment of This One Goes To Eleven a […]
Happy Cinco De Mayo everyone. Nothing says despair like a frozen raspberry lime-a-rita, so pour one of those puppies and join us as we clank through a bone pile of new releases, face-melting shows, and crazy headlines until there’s nothing left.
Don’t forget that L train has forsaken us this weekend (and for the next 5 weekends afterwards). Fret not, for once that crushing realisation subsides you can perk up in the knowledge that any efforts to battle this inconvenience will be rewarded with some fine entertainment.

While the rest of the world slogs through post-holiday depression and mourns beside the final embers of summer, metal nerds the universe over have joined in celebration of one of the biggest release days of the year, knowing damn well that as long we can still wear black after Labor Day, everything will be just […]
Italian progressive rock legends, Goblin, made their first ever trip to the US in 2013 and clearly enjoyed themselves as Claudio Simonetti and co are coming back to headline Irving Plaza on the 15th of July.
