The Decemberists @ The Warfield, 11/25/08

“You’d better hurry, they just went on stage!” It’s 9pm, which seems early to me, but apparently The Decemberists don’t run on rock ‘n roll time. It’s night two of my manfriend’s indie rock run, and while I am familiar enough with ‘The Engine Driver’ to know that it makes me very sad, I do […]

Mini Review: Wintersleep @ Slim's and The Rosebuds, Fire & Whiskey @ The Independent, 11/14/08

The manfriend is more of an indie rock dude, so occasionally I find myself at these types of shows. And on this particular night, we show-hopped and caught the opener at Slim’s and the main act at The Independent. Wintersleep, from Halifax, Nova Scotia, has had a rollercoaster of a year. After winning the Juno […]

myspace find: the new regime

Last week, Trent Reznor announced that Ilan Rubin would be taking over drum duties for Josh Freese on NIN’s 2009 tour. Now, I had never heard of Ilan Rubin, and I think many of us NIN fans were expecting one of the usual rotating industrial or hard rock drummers that may be between jobs. So, […]

OhGr @ Slim's, 11/21/08

Walking into Slim’s last night was like entering a black mass. A largely homogenous audience of goths and cyberpunks all staring in eerily silent stillness at a screen projecting black and white footage of images we’d all like to forget, while American Memory Project played concealed behind the screen. It was oddly hypnotic. It isn’t […]

Mickey Avalon, Dirt Nasty, Beardo @ Slim's, 11/19/08

It seems like yesterday- when myspace was in its heyday- that I got a friend request from Mickey Avalon. A skim of his page, a view of his mini-doc featuring Santino, and a quick listen turned me into a Mickey enthusiast then and there, and I spread the word to all my unsuspecting friends like […]

NIN News: New Drummer, New Dates

Reznor announced Freese’s replacement via nin.com this evening…and the winner is: (from nin.com) “With great pride and excitement I announce the addition of Ilan Rubin to the lineup beginning next year. I had the chance to see Ilan playing his ass off at Reading and Leeds a couple summers ago and he blew me away. […]

Mini Review: Gang Gang Dance, Marnie Stern @ Bimbo's, 11/14/08

It’s good to step out of my musical comfort zone every once and a while to see what else is out there. Oftentimes, it reaffirms why I like what I like. So I went into this night cold, with an open mind. Marnie Stern is a female guitarist, playing alongside another guitarist and drummer. She […]

The Faint, Dr. Dooom, Natalie Portman's Shaved Head @ The Warfield, 11/8/08

Here I am, at Faint show #4 for the year. I missed seeing Natalie Portman’s Shaved Head a couple months ago at Bottom of the Hill, and the last issue of Spin rubbed that in my face. I think they’ve got a good thing going. They’re definitely much better than the openers for The Faint […]

Russell Brand @ Cobb's Comedy Club, 11/6/08

So, I’m not usually compelled to write about the occasional non-music event I go to, but tonight, I just can’t help myself. It’s official, HRC has a new crush, and his name is Russell Brand. I won’t divulge much about the evening’s affairs, as you can probably witness a lot of it yourself on his […]
