Skinny Jeans, Guitar Screams: The Raveonettes, Crocodiles @ Bimbo's, 11/9/09

At first, I wasn’t really in the mood for this show. I had one of those days where every second was filled with second thoughts. Every emotion that took me over were ones I loathe: regret, remorse, guilt, anxiety. These are the kind of days that I prefer to end with some metal, the kind […]

Blonde Redhead @ Bimbo's 4/23/07

It bewilders me that I go to 1 or 2 shows a week, and this was my first time to Bimbo’s. Unlike any venue I’ve ever been to before, it was a perfect mix of kitsch and sophistication. A twenties supperclub converted into a music venue, it dictates a certain ambiance that provides the reason […]
