Deathbed: Combichrist and Ivardensphere @ White Rabbit, 5/28/11

“I killed you in me, I’m willing to live to start over, No sign of love, it’s obsolete, I still feel lust in power, I’m still on the run, I’m still running away from you, And in this shadow I wait for you, Strip for you In white light, my fearless mind, Falling through again, […]

Rapture: Rammstein and Combichrist @ Thomas & Mack, Las Vegas, 5/21/11

Now I was standing at the rail with three of my girlfriends holding ‘I Survived First Row With Rammstein’ stickers covered in […]

It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these! The other day I received a nice little package from Hell Razor, my latest find in cute rock-n-roll accessories.

Lucky Girl: Rival Sons @ Harvard & Stone, 5/5/11

For the last 9 months, my life has been in transition. I’ve had no real home, and have been far away from my friends and my music and anything I like to do, really. Every show is a 3 hour round trip drive or a flight; therefore everything has been done under a different level […]

Feedback: Austin Psych Fest, Day 2 @ Seaholm Power Plant, 4/30/11

Bad Kids: The Black Lips, Vivian Girls @ Emo’s, 4/28/11

The words “they put on a great show” will get me out to see a band in any genre. From Dillinger Escape Plan, to Tom Waits, to Insane Clown Posse, to DeVotchKa, to GWAR…that phrase has made me a fanatic about some artists and drawn me to see others I would have never seen on […]
