The eclectic electric sounds of Axemunkee kept things festive at Anngelle Wood’s 4th annual Spectacular Gift Drive for DCF Kids Fund.
The Knock Ups kicked off the 4th annual Spectacular Gift Drive for DCF Kids Fund organized by Anngelle Wood.
It’s Black Friday. Black Friday is still terrible. Supporting local art isn’t. Here’s a quick list of alternative ways to spend your hard earned dollars than fighting crowds at the chain stores.
- Pick up some new music from a local band. The Sheila Divine, Goddamn Draculas, Party Bois, Worshipper and Weakened Friends have all put out amazing music in the past few months that is worth listening to on endless repeat.
- Help art get made! Abbie Barrett and Walter Sickert & The Army of Broken Toys are making new records. I’m sure they’d appreciate your support.
- Did you know the design and illustration arm of the Daykamp Empire has an Etsy store? You can pick up show posters, art prints and even holiday cards!
- Save your money for the ROCKIN FLEA MARKET + BLOODY MARY BASH! Bridget Haley will have crocheted tacos. They’re amazing. Just don’t eat them.
If you do go out to the stores today, think about keeping it local. Oh, and pick up something for Anngelle Wood’s Spectacular Gift Drive for DCF Kids Fund.
On the day of the 2015 Rumble Finals, I went back to see what I wrote about Zip-Tie Handcuffs the first time I saw them. Here’s a quote: “The wall of distortion and close-spaced vocal harmonies whipped through the crowd melting faces like the spirits at the end of Raiders Of The Lost Ark.” Yup. Nailed it. First try. Zip-Tie Handcuffs are your 2015 Rock ‘N’ Roll Rumble Champions. I love it.
The Warning Shots closed out the preliminary round of the 2015 Rock ‘N’ Roll Rumble with a bang. The band made use of every inch of the stage, monitors and bar while delivering their punk-rock-for-all manifesto.
Soft Pyramids are cool. Really cool. Their songs are nuanced and layered, waiting for just the right moment to unfold before you and show their true colors. Well played and well paced, the band worked like master musical manipulators. Tack on a perfect Lindsey Buckingham cover and you’ve got Soft Pyramids moving on to the semifinals.
