Catbath

Album Review: Catbath – Glitterbox

Catbath is the unholy union of Ramones-esque punk and Pacific Northwest grunge. The pop charm is there, surrounded by gnarly riffs and haunting shrieks. Hailing from Minneapolis, Catbath has been making a name for themselves in DIY circles. With their [...]

SIMGE On The Scene: Mr. Marsh, Earth Telephone & Latewaves Played Happy Mondays

After missing a month of music, I think I am ready to get back on track here. Dance season is done, which means no more traveling, which means more energy to invest in song. Going to get a couple of [...]

Album Review: COMPS – Life as a Baller

I’ve never been to Michigan. But, I imagine it’s colder than the Southern states where I grew up. If the soundtrack for Michigan living is anything like COMPs’ new record, the hilariously titled Life As A Baller, I might move [...]

SIMGE On The Scene: Bobby Mahoney kicked off the summer with Mack, The Burns, Tula Vera and Tommy London

Summer is indeed in full swing now. The heat has taken hold and already melted the brains. Which does not take much actually because when the summer kickoff party at House of Independents went down a few weeks ago, I [...]

SIMGE On The Scene: Wetbrain, Little Vicious and Shut Up played Happy Mondays

I have been on the prowl to see Owel for a while now. I first caught them at Pinelands Festival a couple of years ago and got hooked on the lull you into a peaceful bliss, crescendo into a massive [...]

SIMGE On The Scene: Sunshine Spazz, blindspot and Wicked Hollow played Happy Mondays

Walking into Asbury’s Wonder Bar for my preshow beverage, I was quite surprised at all the people already hanging out. I inquired if there were residual leftovers from some earlier gathering, but it turns out they were all there for [...]
