  • So, this is probably not the best way to start off an article that lauds the joy found in a few recent local shows, but the one thing that all three had in common was an uncommonly low attendance. Maybe I’m just being drawn to shows that are off the beaten path, maybe I’m taking chances on seeing bands that people haven’t even heard of yet, maybe I like to go to shows that no one else is covering or will attend because I generally hate people and I don’t really want to be social. Maybe it’s all of these...

  • Sometimes you discover albums by going to shows, by following the bands, by paying your dues and meeting them face to face—there are other times when you find out about an album that will tantalize your ears and no one knows about it. This is what I live for. I have been a fan of The Whisperlights for years now, but when I heard that Ills Riske was putting out an album under the label of There Is Danger, I was thrilled and very nearly overwhelmed. Now, I know about his talent and the musicians he could assemble, but I...

    There Is Danger in Living Dreams

  • As some of you may or may not know, I became freed of my day job on May 1st–the news of which I greeted with, at worst, ambivalence and at best a fair amount of happiness. Honestly, I’ve been missing out on a lot of killer shows during the week and the opportunity to spend a few weeks checking out what’s happening between Sunday and Friday, kind of thrilled me.

  • I can’t be everywhere at once and chances are with the number of albums I receive weekly, I can’t catch all the ones I should. One of the bands that I have definitely shown up late for the show is Bad Lucy.  I had started seeing their name on bills last Spring and I after I see a band featured enough with other bands enough, I know there’s got to be something to it. This is the  case with Bad Lucy and since catching them the first time, I’ve seen them every chance I can get. Their debut self-titled studio...
