In a week dominated by inhumane actions stemmed from our wannabe-dictator of a president, it’s pretty hard to come up with any kind of intro to this weekend’s choice selection of shows… but whether you’re just looking to switch your brain off or a reward for fighting a good cause, it’s important to take stock […]
I hope everyone enjoyed the long weekend, survived valentine’s day, and is generally looking forward to making plans for Spring. After a couple more quiet weeks show-wise, we’re back with some fine choices.
Greetings! While certain events this week have painted a rather sombre reality on a time that usually brings the city together with so much fun and creativity, we have to press on and do our best with our time here. Concentrating on better news, the city finally repealed the 91-year-old cabaret law so not only […]
No shortage of killer stuff to go around this week—especially from a couple of noted locals—so I’ll keep the stage banter brief this week. Can I get a little more Trenchgrinder in the monitor, please?
After completing another orbit around the sun recently, things are going reasonably well, and this good run continues with a great weekend of shows! Summer is officially here and while you might have to plan around some thunderstorms in the coming days, all the more reason to be in air-conditioned music venue having a good […]

Anyway, you can do that and STILL go to shows, of course, and these are the ones you […]
We return once again to our regular schedule after a weekend away to witness another regular occurrence, sporting heartache at the hands feet of my local team. Throw in a much lighter wallet coupled with some jetlag and it sounds like a bit of a waste of time, but much like music, you don’t get […]
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. […]
Happy National Pizza Day, everyone. Hope you’re all having a good snow day, unless of course you had to trek into the office anyway (like me) and also made reservations at Rubirosa weeks ago for tonight (like me), then sympathies all around. Anyway, despite the snow and the inevitable slush-show tomorrow, there are plenty of […]
