Best Albums of 2017: The Nationals Edition

While the locals list is certainly the more special list to me, that national list is a good glimpse into my personal taste. The national list of favorites I expanded to fifteen to include bands that aren’t local, but would be considered local if I did live in their city. There was certainly a couple that I felt blended in and beat a few of the national acts. So with that in mind, let’s go down the list from fifteen to my favorite album of 2017. Side note, a couple…

The Stars Aligned

Many of us have a bucket list for a specific hobby or just life in general. It is a list of things you want to accomplish before you die. For music, over time I’ve grown a list of my own.

The only casualty was not glancing at the schedule to find our local girls in Doll Skin were a 1PM…

With the Punk Rock Bowling write ups, I’m going to probably do more blurbs than my usual writing format. There is a lot of stuff to cover, and of course, some great pictures to check…

The Monday Night Killer Trio

This show has been on my most anticipated list since I first heard Aimee Interrupter announce it at Warped Tour. How could a line up with both Bad Cop/Bad Cop and the Interrupters ever disappoint? It cannot, did not, and got even better with Bowcat added on top.   If you’re wondering what Bowcat is, probably best to look up the band on its Bandcamp or Facebook page. A Google search may return other not friendly to a work environment results. This band since I started seeing them has just…
