The Lights Out @ The Sinclair 8.28.2015

The Lights Out brought their parallel universe freak-out to The Sinclair.


The Humanoids – “Fields of Death” (2014)

The Humanoids - "Fields of Death" (2014)

I’m not saying your survival depends on listening to “Fields of Death” by The Humanoids on repeat at a volume just a tick below hearing-damaging level, but why chance it?


Raw Blow – Slow Choke (2014)

Raw Blow - Slow Choke (2014)

Watching Raw Blow during The Rumble was so engrossing I became oblivious to the world around me. I’m happy to report their Slow Choke EP is just as compelling.


Eddie Japan – “Fight Song” (2014)

Aloud – “Love Is A Losing Game” (2015)

Aloud - "Love Is A Losing Game" (2015)

Here we have Jen and Henry of Aloud covering Amy Winehouse’s soulful, Burt Bacharach-style heart-breaker “Love Is A Losing Game.”


Ruby Rose Fox – “Good Friday / Gloria” (2015)

Sometimes you have to burn it all to ashes and hope that, deep down, you’ve got it in you to build it all back up again.


These Wild Plains – “Break Your Heart” (2015)

These Wild Plains - "Break Your Heart" (2015)

“Break Your Heart” glows with a warmth that could comfort the coldest soul.

Abbie Barrett And The Last Date @ Atwood’s Tavern 8.13.2015

Every time I see Abbie Barrett play with her band, I walk away a bigger fan.

Worshipper - "Place Beyond the Light" b/w "Step Behind" (2015)

Worshipper play a kind of no-frills metal that emphasizes riffs, groove and melody.
