Happiness Is Not Interviewing Taking Back Sunday

Happiness Is Not Interviewing Taking Back Sunday

Emo and emo core are just buzz words. Like grunge or now psyche, these are just labels that people who interview and people who market music place on bands. But, the way I feel about second wave acts like Days Of The New to grunge, is how I felt about second wave emo acts like Thursday or Taking Back Sunday.…

The Bubble Puppy Lives

The Bubble Puppy Lives

Unless you count the Red Krayola’s Mayo Thompson touring with an entirely new band (and doing mostly new music), or the 13th Floor Elevators’ Roky Erickson playing mostly post-Elevator material, the Bubble Puppy is the only IA band still gigging. …

A Brave New Wave: A Chat with Paul Connolly

A Brave New Wave: A Chat with Paul Connolly

Let’s Get Crazy: The Best of The Week

Let’s get this straight, Slick Rick is a legend and if you agree then you should grab your tickets ASAP and make it out for his 25th Anniversary Tour. “The Great Adventures of Slick Rick” was one of those albums a white kid from the suburbs like me would hide from his Conservative parents’ eyes.…

Tobacco – “Streaker” (feat. Notrabel)

We are both elitist, asshole, music snobs so to come to that conclusion and ONLY that, is a self-proclaimed, bold, statement.…

Local Love: Catch Fever

Local Love: Catch Fever

If I hadn’t had seen the band perform the album live, I would have written the record off as studio trickery. However, the only trick here, is that this was made by a band who hasn’t been around for a full two years.…
