YOU WILL KNOW US BY THE RAINED OUT POOL PARTY

by kevin diamond¬† (pic from last year’s black lips pool party by mel mccue) The Pool Parties may have jumped the shark with all the rules and regulations, security guards, police, separated drinking area, etc (seriously, it’s like a police state in there) but that provided the perfect background for the Black Lips‘ supporting set [...]

INDIE NEWS REEL: 5/6

by charles poladian This week won’t quit. The rain just keeps coming, but there seems to be some relief in sight. The week kicked off with a bang, as the much anticipated Dark Was The Night live show lived up to all the expectations.¬† We have various odds and ends for you to get lost [...]

INDIE NEWS REEL: WKEND EDITION 5/2

by charles poladian (pains pic by pavla kopecna) Unfortunately, not every weekend can be like last weekend.
