RIP Burt Reynolds. No particular words of wisdom this week (are there ever any?), though you should check out the new Anna Calvi album whilst also going to one or more of these shows this weekend.
Pretty sure we had summer for a hot minute last weekend… but this one should be perfectly pleasant nonetheless. Did you get your Bowie metrocard? Have you started making summer festival plans? Perhaps your needs are of the more immediate variety, in which case, read on.
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 […]
Day drinking is one of our favorite activities. So is making fun of white people. We really try to find any excuse to partake in both highly-regarded American pastimes—and the Kentucky Derby is the one day a year we can REALLLLLLLY do both.
