So I get lazy about this site, and now that I have some more time on my hands I want to try to make it something again. So I’m doing a redesign with the great help of Binary Bonsai great theme K2. It might take a couple days to get it to the point where I will turn it on, but give me a little time. Also with this change and the addition of more bandwidth, I think I will slowly return the videos to being online. I’ll have to test the waters to see how it does. Email me if you have any suggestions.
Verbena is one of those band that got lost in the shuffle. Too early for their own good. I remember picking up their second album Into the Pink and was just blown away by the album. The dark piano on songs like Lovely Isn’t Lovely to the dirty guitars on Pretty Please to the female background vocals on majority songs. I’m a sucker for those female vocal hooks. Sadly Anne-Marie was no longer in the band when I got to see them live, so no female vocal hooks.Â But it was a rockin’ show nonetheless. Read more →
This album has some random photos of Ugly Cassinova and Dub Narcotic Sound System so many years ago.Â There were only like 100 people at this show, which looking back at it now, is pretty amazing since I saw Modest Mouse play a sold out show at The Paramount. Read more →
I really enjoyed Trail of Dead older albums like Madonna and Source Tags & Codes, but I really loved Worlds Apart.Â It falls into one of those rock epic albums where the entire band was higher the a kite while recording and that everyone should listen too.Â To my joy the first time I saw them live they played a good number of songs from Worlds Apart.Â It freaking rocked.Â The double drum kits will be remembered for a long time to come.

I love The White Stripes! I mean is there a better live rock band out there? Can you rock as hard as they do with just two people!?! I think not! In my deep album rotation of White Blood Cells and De Stijl I saw The White Stripes at the Moore Theatre and they rocked me silly. Oh how I would love to see them again…perhaps even the follwing night? Read more →
I loved The Raveonettes first EP Whip It On, and they damaged my hearing for life when I saw them live at the Croc.Â Good lord were they loud.Â All my friends say it wasn’t nearly as loud as a Sonic Youth show, but I really couldn’t hear that well for a good couple days. Read more →
As much as I not a fan of Ben Gibbard, the Postal Service is pretty darn catchy and fun to listen to when your in the mood.Â So I had to jump at the oppertunity to check them out live.Â Well worth it, they put on a great show and I got to see Jenny Lewis in the flesh, oh baby. Read more →
