Seems like a fairly normal week, local institutions announcing that they’re closing, crazy people making crazy threats, and maybe some good news with the opening of a new music venue. Plenty of great options this weekend and it’s going to be a cold one so what better way to get through it than with a […]
Anddddd we’re back. Apologies for the Thanksgiving-related departure last week, but what’s the point of all this goat-slaying satanic black metal without a nuclear family and a tiny hometown to terrify with it?
We’re in the home stretch of this wretched orbit, where end-of-year lists could read more like obituaries. Let’s try and be optimistic for a few minutes at least, and marvel at the stupendous options we have to entertain us this weekend.
Now that the presidential debates are finally over, it seems like the best time to get out an do something that’s actually enjoyable. With amplifiers set between three and eleven this weekend, there should be something for everyone.

It’s 20 degrees celsius as I type this (let’s not talk of that silly farenheit…) and spring is in the air, by which I […]

It has been a rough start to 2016, but hopefully less choppy waters lie ahead, to help facilitate this, I am mostly prescribing a weekend of music that won’t often get out of the middle lane. Sometimes we all need to admit defeat and just slow […]
This is the first weekend in which David Bowie no longer exists (and now, also tragically, Alan Rickman); still a hard concept to process. As the great man said, “I know when to go out, and when to stay in”, might I suggest the former this weekend. I’m not giving you much chance to put on your […]
There has been somewhat of a dry spell for shows recently, perhaps a post-CMJ hangover, but that gets completely turned around this weekend with 5 outstanding options, so be a decent human being and ignore all the far-too-early christmas decorations and go to some shows!
