Heavyweights: Keep Your Friends Close


Just when I think I’ve caught up – a pile of crap is unloaded on my head. I can smell it seeping in and I’m not a happy camper. The only good part about today is that I have a coffee date later and this Heavyweights’ record. You gotta love some pop punk tossed into your otherwise shitty day. So let’s less about me and more about Keep Your Friends Close. Read the rest at…

Solid Gold Balls: Solid Gold Balls


Happy Labor Day everyone! For those who have the day off, awesome – the rest of us are working because what else is there to do? No invites to BBQs or any other social plans line my afternoon but at least I get to see a show free tonight. So before I start to get ready for that and whatnot, let’s talk about Solid Gold Balls’ self-titled record this morning. It’s an odd mixture of various decades intertwined with indie elements and brought to the forefront with eccentricities. Read the rest at…

The Griswolds: Be Impressive


This has been a very trying week as I did a focus group for extra cash that got me behind in every aspect of life, my older brother and his girlfriend of 24 years split and I just wasn’t feeling up to doing much but acting like a rebellious teen. I didn’t feel like writing was fun, nothing was fun anymore but one activity I couldn’t keep my mind off of. Then The Griswolds’ Be Impressive finally got its chance to play in my apartment for review and there it was – there was the fun. Read the rest at…

Top 10 Thursday: Parental Picks

top-10-thursday-parental-picksThis week both of my parents celebrate their birthdays, and it’s this week that I wish I still lived at home because that’d mean twice the cake – even though I’m sure my dad wouldn’t even want one because he’s been on a diet ever since I could remember. It’s one of those diets that have no real results. Anyways, to celebrate the sperm and egg I came from I picked 10 songs that remind me of them – from ones they love to ones that strike up fond memories. Hear the picks at…

Wrapped in the Covers: Panic! at the Disco “I Write Sins Not Tragedies”

wrapped-in-the-covers-panic-at-the-disco-i-write-sins-not-tragediesIt’s been a very tiring week as I had to get up at 5:30am Monday and Tuesday to do a focus group and then come home and do Satan’s work – I really need to send that email that tells him I’m done with his bullshit and how he treats me. BUT before all that and because I can do this pretty quick before getting to the 100 or so emails that are crowding my inboxes – I have this week’s featured cover.

Last night I managed to somehow stay awake to head out and see Panic! at the Disco at The Greek. Going on two hours of sleep I watched as Brendon Urie and what I can only assume is a backing band now did their thing. So why not shine some light on the one that started it all – from acapella to hardcore – here we go. Hear the covers at…
