ballboy

Show Date: October 1, 2002

As a card-carrying curmudgeon and a 'been there/done that,' jaundiced music fan, it is rare that I am taken in by the star-making machinery. I am happy to report one of those occasions.

Pretty Girls Make Graves with Your Enemies Friends

Show Date: June 9, 2002

For weeks (months) I’ve heard Dana rave about Pretty Girls Make Graves. I doubt there has been a trip in her car where she hasn’t played a song from their debut cd, quoted a lyric over the course of conversation, or gushed about their live shows. I was nearly as excited as she was when […]
