Wrekmeister Harmonies / Kayo Dot / Miserable @ Trans Pecos – 11.4.16

Before I go any further, you should know that my mind’s not right. Isn’t tonight and wasn’t the last five. Personal shit. Heavy truths of watching the ones you love get older while you chance the teenage dream again and it all just seems so much grayer than it did...

Skeletonwitch / Iron Reagan / Oathbreaker / Homewrecker @ St. Vitus – 10.28.16

Fuck today. No. Yeah. I mean, definitely fuck today but motherfucking fuck this week. This shit was a bad scene from the beginning and only got worse as the hours unfurled what with the discharge and contempt; the nonsensical doublespeak, the maladies and doe-eyed incompetence that just makes me want...

Dillinger Escape Plan / O’Brother / Cult Leader / Bent Knee @ Webster Hall – 10.15.16

I shouldn’t have gone to this show. Five days into a cold or flu or whatever phlegmatic shitshow I’m still enjoying this evening and deep into the dizzying twilight of the third migraine of the week, I was dizzy and hacking and weak and would’ve done a better service to...

Birds in Row / Listener / Mercy Ties / Sun Rot @ Don Pedro’s – 10.13.16

Birds in Row / Listener / Mercy Ties / Sun Rot @ Don Pedro’s – 10.13.16

This town gets smaller every day. Sun Rot Sludge as fuck, wet crust with black hearts and glue eyes or something similarly unpleasant and appealing like the smell of a freshly picked scab. A glum trudge punctuated by electronic squealing. The name’s appropriate. Mercy Ties I’ll kind of always be...

Self Defense Family / Jesus Piece / PAWNS / GLORY @ Brooklyn Bazaar – 9.30.16

Self Defense Family / Jesus Piece / PAWNS / GLORY @ Brooklyn Bazaar – 9.30.16

After three beers (before the first band even played) it finally clicked: Brooklyn (nee Night) Bazaar’s new Greenpoint location is the perfect spot for a devastatingly disarming 70s party scene what with the inescapable blackness contrasting tallow halogen, drab rugs and mirrors fucking everywhere. NOFX blared from some rooms, artisinal...

Mamiffer – The World Unseen (in pictures)

Author’s Note: On the first afternoon, I came upon a brook and followed its babble for two or three hours. On the second, I stayed inside as the storm came and the grass shook and the trees cracked and the cattle howled. On the third, I watched hawks circle from...

Protomartyr / Priests / Beech Creeps @ Music Hall of Williamsburg – 2.13.16

Protomartyr / Priests / Beech Creeps @ Music Hall of Williamsburg – 2.13.16

Saturday was cold, man. Bitter fucking cold. Nut-skinningly cold. Clit-crackingly cold. Straight-up skull sheering old soul hemorrhaging cold and I know, I know, I know that I live in New York City and as a lover of Eastern Seaboard seasons I should be comfortable with a winter wild but a...
