I have been to The Foundry a few times for shows but never to its parent venue, The Fillmore. That finally changed for me as I kicked off the weekend taking in The Truth Tour, headlined by Nothing More. The [...]

Album Review: Tullycraft – The Railway Prince Hotel

There are some records that always put a smile on my face, regardless of what mood I’m in. They seem to have an almost magical disregard for the harsh reality we live in, as if they were written in an [...]

Rose Ette

Album Review: Rose Ette – Ignore The Feeling

I tend to think of the 80s as a musical decade I skip over. With its annoying, compressed-to-hell snare drum sound and its cheesy, huge, rock ballads, it seems like a decade in between the warmth and rawness of the [...]

SIMGE On The Scene: Ben Resnick, Scout, and The Mercury Brothers played Happy Mondays

I had another one of those restless nights trying to sleep on Monday, still stoked up from a night at Happy Mondays. Maybe, subliminally, that is why I missed quite a few of them…fear of lack of sleep. NOT. Who [...]

SIMGE On The Scene: The Wrecks, Badflower, Deal Casino & The Stolen at The Foundry

I ventured out to Philadelphia for a little Tuesday night show at The Foundry, a very nice room within The Fillmore. The weekday jaunt was nothing new for me and Philly, for me, is much easier to get to than [...]

Laser Print Taser

7″ Review: Leopard Print Taser – Teeth Are Not Bones

When I think of the Northeast, I think of bands like Dinosaur Jr. and The Pixies – bands that are noisy, catastrophic, and loud as hell. It’s incredible how these bands manage to find a balance between dissonance and melody. [...]
