MUDDY TIMES @ ALL POINTS WEST

day 1 by pelly – day 2 & 3 by marc and eliza (photography by marc evan) All Points West is the best thing to happen in Jersey City, well, ever. With a solid lineup (most notably on Friday) and acts appealing to a range of demographics, Day 1 drew a surprisingly small crowd. I [...]

2009 BONNAROO WRAP-UP

INDIE NEWS REEL: 5/28

by charles poladian Ah, Memorial Day is gone. A little too humid for my tastes, but what can you do. It did not rain and I hit plenty of BBQ’s. With that being said, there tends to be a bit of a lull. Maybe it’s the food; maybe it’s the people forgetting to get back [...]

QC MIXTAPE VOL. 39 (MAR 29 – APR 4)

by bmac I think Pringles’ initial intention was to make tennis balls, but on the day that the rubber was supposed to show up, a big truckload of potatoes arrived. And Pringles is a laid-back company — they said, ‘Fuck it. Cut ‘em up.’   – Mitch Hedberg Get the whole mixtape at once – mixtape [...]
