The Faint….get ready to be fasciinated

The Faint kicked off their tour Sunday night in…Des Moines. In an interview with a local paper, Todd Fink revealed some very interesting things about the new album and tour. Apparently no one covered last night’s show, so you’ll just have to wait until I literally follow them for 3 dates next week. Yes, I’m […]

nine inch nails, crystal castles @ key arena, 7/26/08

It amazes me that, while I write about NIN on a regular basis, this will be my first official HRC review of them. It was almost exactly 2 years ago that I saw the last show of the With Teeth tour in Mountain View, though I was lucky enough to see Reznor solo at Bridge […]

Metallica probably hates me

They hate the internet. Now, they hate bloggers in particular. Too bad, we’re here to stay. They probably really wouldn’t like my review of their Bridge School performance.

Burning Brides, MC Rut @ Rickshaw Stop, 7/22/08

My professional grade earplugs couldn’t save me from the wailing and screaming of last night’s bands at The Rickshaw. The first band, SF’s The New Up, was really sub par. It’s unfortunate, because I can tell that the female lead singer has one killer set of pipes, they just weren’t being taken advantage of. The […]

immigrant @ dna lounge, 7/19/08

It’s my first, and apparently last, Pop Roxx. Pop Roxx was a 3 years running monthly party playing a mix of ‘electro-rock-indie-new wave-goth-mod-bastard pop’ music, with buzz bands playing a set somewhere in there. Upon walking in to an empty, cavernous club at 10p, it is apparent why this party might be over. Dead clubs […]
