Nico Vega & The Gray Kid @ Mezzanine, 7/21/07

You know it’s going to be a rough night when you lose your charm before the night even begins. I don’t literally mean my charm- that’s here to stay- but my cute little boom box charm on my ghetto gold necklace fell off before I even made it to Mezzanine to show it off. Cheap […]

the rockin' debate: CD's vs. MP3s vs. vinyl. let's get it on.

Going into a record store for this first time in my life was a defining moment for me. It was the mid to late eighties, and I was barely tall enough to peruse the racks of 45s, cassette tapes, and 8 tracks. I think I came away with 2 45s that day to take home […]
