03/19/2017

I go through phases where I don’t necessarily loose my faith in new Rock & Roll, but feel a bit disillusioned with it. I ask myself, “What can you show me that hasn’t been done better by (fill in the name of any heavy 70’s legends here)?” Whenever I get that fatalistic feeling, the most Read More

Noah Gunderson, The Wild Reeds and Angelo De Augustine @ The Chapel

11/25/2014

Angelo De Augustine would probably say this was his worst show ever. But between apologies for being sick, coughs, and gulps of water, Angelo gave the most sincere, vulnerable performance of the night.
