Noise Pop: Fu Manchu, Saviours, ASG, and Orchid @ Slim's, 2/27/08

It’s night one of my Noise Pop adventure, and I figured that there’s no better way to start it off than with some good ol’ American rock music.

SHAT, The Doormats, 8 Bit Idiots @ Thee Parkside, 2/19/08

It was a rainy Tuesday evening at Thee Parkside, making the punky dive venue seem grungier than ever. It’s a night of 2 bands comprised of local game developers, kicking off the Game Developer’s Convention, and 1 band that had absolutely nothing to do with videogames. The night started with 8 Bit Idiots, who played […]
