[BEST VIDEO EVER] The Orwells "The Righteous One"

[BEST VIDEO EVER] The Orwells “The Righteous One”

It’s kind of ironic that this new song from The Orwells is called “The Righteous One”, since after watching the video I felt, well, not. Between the angry sexuality of the music and the lustful glances from the band members (so many Mario Cuomos giving me so much open-mouthed smizing) the black-and-white video left me...

[BRA BURNING] Why Is There An Idiot Writing About Why “There Are So Many Cute Girls at Metal and Hardcore Shows Now”?

Tonight I took a break from my busy only-listening-to-Lorde-and-Taylor-Swift schedule to peruse some articles on the Internet. After I checked on all my favorite shoe and purse blogs and used Pinterest to update my “dream wedding” board, I somehow happened upon this article entitled “Why Are There So Many Cute Girls At Metal & Hardcore...

[FOMO-GRAPHS] Cultist 2 Year Anniversary with White Lung, Criminal Hygiene, Heller Keller, and Washing Machines

We had a birthday party for our blog at The Echo on Jan 27th and my dad said it was pretty fun. He only stayed for an hour so it must not have been that fun, but other people came and stayed most or the whole time, which was nice. There was no cake unfortunately,...

Flyer by Justin Gradin   You guys! We have maintained a blog for TWO WHOLE YEARS and we think that’s cause for celebration.

[FOMO-GRAPHS] White Fence and Destruction Unit at The Fonda Jan 17

Destruction Unit and White Fence played incredible sets to a packed out Fonda Theater last Friday, and we were there to cheer them on with inspirational between-set jams (I’d say Shannon Cornett and I had something to do with filling up the venue but I’ve been working on not telling bold-faced lies in public forums)....

[TRUE STORY] I Lost My Virginity To A Juggalo*

*Okay so he wasn’t a full Juggalo, no face paint or Faygo, but he was definitely an ICP super fan. Here’s the story I will probably never tell my daughter: By today’s standards, I lost my virginity late. I grew up in Torrance where we started drinking beers in the alley behind school at twelve...

[SEVEN QUESTIONS IN HEAVEN] Tim Presley of White Fence

Upon being presented the opportunity to interview Tim Presley, the one-man in the one-man lo-fi psych-pop outfit White Fence, I went about my usual, professional pre-interview research methods: re-listening to the latest album Cyclops Reap, reading various articles about the band, and most important to my process, carefully scrolling through Tim’s Instagram. The album is...

[TO DO] LA: WIN Tickets To See Parquet Courts, White Fence, and Destruction Unit at The Fonda Jan 17!

Sure, these bands are really good. Parquet Courts has been likened to the second coming of Pavement by various media outlets whose job it is to apparently make comparisons like that, White Fence is critically beloved and very PROLIFIC (according to every piece of writing about them on the Interweb) and also the subject of...

[BEST VIDEO EVER] Cherry Glazerr “White’s Not My Color This Evening”

Do you remember that day in high school when you woke up and looked down at the floor only to see a giant pile of stars that had been washed from your eyes like so much eyeball crust while you were asleep? The day that all your creeping liquid suspicions that life actually kind of...

[TO DO] LA: Win Tickets To See Bleached With Together PANGEA and Cherry Glazerr 12/14 at The Glasshouse

Here are a few things I have personally witnessed happen at past Bleached shows: multiple fans rushing the stage to make out with Jennifer mid-song, every boy in the audience removing their pants, Jessie finishing off her guitar solo for “When I Was Yours” laying horizontally upon a sea of strong crowd hands, an alien...
