Hot Topic: H.I.M., We Are The Fallen, Dommin @ The Regency Ballroom, 4/20/10

Once upon a time, there was a teenage girl who was into rock music. Her room’s centerpiece was a stereo system, otherwise decorated with Rolling Stone magazines and posters of musicians on the wall. She hand-painted her converse, wore hand-me-down clothes, and had self-dyed hair. While she was friendly with the jocks, the preps, the […]

Rock a la Carte: Dommin, Seventh Void, Kill Hannah @ Slim's, Mini Mansions, Spinnerette @ GAMH, 7/27/09

It never fails- I go over a week without a show, twiddling my thumbs, and then there are two I want to see on the same night. Lucky for me, my well-connected friend Umlaut took me as his plus one to both shows, so I got to have my cake and eat it too. Sort […]

Wednesday 13, Dommin @ Blake's, 2/22/09

Combichrist, Black Light Burns, Dommin @ DNA Lounge, 1/25/09

Meow. Tonight was my night- one of those shows that makes me wish I had a rewind button so I could do it all again because it made me feel really good. “It’s apparent he’s the industrial Elvis.” I walked into DNA shortly after Dommin’s set had started. Girls are screeching. Roses are being strewn […]
