I Lost You: A Place to Bury Strangers @ Troubadour, 11/6/12

At this point, there really isn’t much more I can write about A Place to Bury Strangers, except that, even though I’ve seen them many times over the past 5 years, I’m always enthralled. Previous APTBS posts

Through The Never: Orion Music + More / Metallica, Eric Church, The Sword, Baroness, Landmine Marathon, Ghost, A Place to Bury Strangers, Kyng, and more @ Bader Field in Atlantic City, 6/23-24/12

Hi. I’ve already got a piece up on about this…but it had to be edited down and there was just too much to say about this weekend. So here’s more. 1. Traveling to Atlantic City takes too long for people who live in most of the world. Also, Atlantic City is evil, and not […]

Headbanger Face Rip – Chaos in Tejas: Municipal Waste, St. Vitus, Midnight, Toxic Holocaust, A Place to Bury Strangers, Ghoul @ RED RIVER CORRIDOR, 6/1-3/12

24 hours prior to starting Chaos in Tejas weekend I was on the red carpet in LA. Now we were surrounded by crust punkers, smelling something awful, covered in sweat, and getting spit on. Both types of events are ok in my life. I would spend the next three days and nights sweating it out […]

SXSW Day 4: A Place to Bury Strangers @ Rumbler Lounge, 3/19/11

I had to speed walk back to the main part of Sixth Street once my friends reminded me that APTBS were playing a free show at Rumbler Lounge. By the time I arrived, they were heavy into their tiny set already. I stood at the back at first, but when the usual amount of unprepared […]

SXSW Day 1: A Place to Bury Strangers, She Wants Revenge @ Prague, 3/16/11

It’s always fun when two of ‘my’ bands end up playing together…and while last year’s SXSW had She Wants Revenge with Street Sweeper Social Club for a show, this year had SWR with APTBS. I arrived quite late and walked down into the cavernous bar right as APTBS was about to go on. It was […]

In Your Heart: A Place to Bury Strangers, Hooray For Earth @ Korova, 3/15/11

“Don’t say that you’re nice to me alright You’re lying Don’t say that you’ll be with me tonight You’re lying Don’t think I forgot what you said Implying There’s nothing there and it’s dead In your heart” I’m sitting on the edge of I10 and 18 wheelers are flying by me. My hands are on […]

I Know I'll See You: A Place to Bury Strangers @ The Blank Club San Jose, 6/25/10

What follows will not be my best effort writing about APTBS. For that, try this one. My mind keeps going “I’m ok I’m ok I’m ok….everything’s going to be ok“. But my body disagrees. I can’t really pinpoint what is wrong because it changes at every moment…..but it is surely from stress. But there was […]

HardRockChick Interviews Oliver Ackermann of A Place to Bury Strangers

I can remember how hard I fell for A Place to Bury Strangers the first time I heard them a few years ago, and that was only magnified by the first time I saw them live. Since then, I’ve seen several more shows, and somehow my admiration grows every time. While the entire band is […]

Into the Fuzz: io echo, A Place to Bury Strangers @ Great American Music Hall, 3/10/10

I pulled up close to the Great American Music Hall and parked. I turned the car off and sat there for a second. I’ve already seen BRMC today, dropped off my friend at the airport, and now I’m about to go see two more bands I love. And I’m already thinking that I’ll probably leave […]

Earthquake of Sound: A Place to Bury Strangers, These Are Powers, All the Saints, Geographer @ The Independent, 10/17/09

On the 20th anniversary of the Loma Prieta earthquake, those of us at The Independent experienced earth-shaking sound. Let me start by saying that, every once and a while, there are evenings where there are multiple conflicting shows in the Bay Area, but this one took the cake. Treasure Island Festival, Jesus Lizard (which I […]
