Favorite Album Alert: Tullycraft – The Railway Prince Hotel (and an awesome new video!)

Thanks to my extremely close relationship with each member of Tullycraft, I’ve been lucky enough to listen to their latest batch of songs on repeat for a while now. I’ve been counting the days until I get to discuss the band’s new songs with you and so I’m overjoyed to finally make a huge headline […]

Interpol - Marauder

Marauder by Interpol

Interpol’s last attempt at experimenting, their 2010 self-titled, face planted. During the recording of that record the band’s bassist Carlos Dengler left the group and the three remaining members salvaged what they could from those sessions. It’s not a terrible album, it just doesn’t hold up alongside the rest of the group’s discography. El Pintor, […]

Jason Momoa as Aquaman

Aquaman

I’m just going to start by saying that yes, Aquaman is incredibly dumb. Yet I was still weirdly into it and ended up getting swept away (HAHA) on its wave (haaaaaaa) of fun. Right from the opening narration detailing how Arthur Curry’s mother and father meet, you know exactly what kind of cheese-filled action you’re […]

Imaginary David’s Favorite Show Photos of 2018

I like the rock and roll. I go to a lot of shows — 137 this year. I stand up front because it’s fun and have no shame because I’m old. I take pictures with a cell phone or point and shoot camera so I don’t forget the feeling. Live music is important in normal […]

I’d like to make the world a holiday mixtape…

Remember when the “news” made claim that a Christmas song by the Shins had overtaken Mariah Carey’s holiday anthem as the “the most played holiday song?” Although I love the Shins, their version of a Paul McCartney holiday song, and the idea of it being the #1 holiday song, I’ve always been a tad suspect.

You! Me! Dancing! at the Los Campesinos and Illuminati Hotties show at Neumos

Show Date: November 2, 2018

Last week I found myself the farthest from the stage I’ve ever been at a Los Campesinos! show. I couldn’t see much, but it didn’t matter; I was there to hear a bunch of my favorite songs and jump & dance like nobody was watching (which I find easier to do in the back of […]
