At the ripe age of 18 I got my first job working at the super conglomerate, Wal-mart. What does any sensible 18 year old purchase with their first paycheck? They buy an album, of course. My first album was none other than 10 years debut album, ‘Autumn Effect.’ I got a chance to sit down with the […]

Rating: 8.5/10. Good to blast in your car and bang your head to. With the recent departure of Alex Good and Christian Royer from the band along with the announcement of a new album at the beginning of the year, I was very interested to see what this band would come up with on ‘Bloodwork’. […]
Despite the name City of the Weak the band definitely gave nothing but a strong performance. They played about a half hour set at the Cabooze Friday, September 5th for Hideaway’s Back to School Smoke Out.

I can’t believe this is my first time seeing a Linkin Park show, but it was. I grew up on the West Coast at the height of “Linkin Park-mania,” when Hybrid Theory was played almost in it’s entirety on the radio each week and skinny white kids were given another icon in a tank-top and […]

The Carnivores show with AFI, 30 Seconds To Mars & Linkin Park was un-real.

I hope you all enjoy these photos […]

I’ve been […]

At the end of July this Summer, we got a chance to talk with the boys of Our Last Night about what it’s like being independent, Matt’s gorgeous eyes, and the importance of understanding those who are different from us!

These bands brought everyone there off […]
Allison Weiss has an incredibly familiar sound of youth that makes you want to get together with your friends in Dinky Town, or head to Lake Calhoun. Maybe that won’t make sense to the non Minnesotan’s out there, but to us that means Allison’s sound brings about good feelings and inspiration in the best kind […]
