Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Project Grimm + Brand New Hearts + The Gary + Ruiners + Sarah Jaffe + More

sigh. Friday, February 1st, and I am sorely, sorely behind on the never-timely-to-begin-with weekend rundown, I’m afraid. Apologies for that, folks; been dancing with midgets all evening and am only now able to get back online. But hey, you’ve still got plenty of time to get on off the couch — here we go…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Tom Carter Benefit + Weird Party + False Idols + Free The Water + Silver Snakes (MP3!) + More

Holy shit. That is one hell of a jam-packed evening, y’all; tonight (Friday, August 24th) is literally over-freaking-flowing with great, great shows, so many that I’m going to have to leave a few out, I’m afraid. Here we go…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Ghost Town Electric + Peloton + Runaway Sun + 13 Black Coffins + Vestibule + More

It’s Friday, June 1st, y’all, and while we’re teeting on the edge of Summerfest madness ’round these parts, there’s still other good stuff going on. Before I get to the “official” shows, though, I wanted to mention that I’ve heard rumors about at least two “secret” shows going on tonight, so keep your eyes peeled for those…

Yr. (Belated) Weekend: St. Patty’s at Fitz + Southern Backtones + Andrew W.K. + Dana Buoy (MP3!) + Emmure + More

What can I say, y’all? It’s been a hell of a month over here, and this weekend’s just another to add to the pile…sigh. I’d planned to post this weekend’s writeups, plus a heartfelt post about today’s KTRU Outdoor Show

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Montrose Winter Social + Linus Pauling Quartet + Rachael Yamagata + Adelaine + More

Alrighty, y’all, it’s now Saturday, December 3rd, and it’s time to hold on to your shit, because today/tonight is where it gets a little bit crazy. Before I get to that, though, I wanted to mention a few changes/odd things…

By Crom!: Linus Pauling Quartet Emerge Victorious From the Depths of Hell

Hail, mortals! We at SCR are pleased to hear that long-running/utterly badass stoner-rock dudes the {Linus Pauling Quartet} have returned, at long last, from what they say is a two-year hiatus/tour in the wilds of Hell…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: The Octopus Project + Benefit for Tim Young + Co-Pilot + Clory Martin + The Suffers + More

It’s gonna be a crazy one, y’all; this weekend is insanely busy, with tons of stuff going on each & every night, starting with tonight, 11/11/11. I swear, it’s just been like that lately — the weekends when not much good is happening have been few & far between…

Coming Up: Co-Pilot Leads an Atmospheric, Heavy Blowout, This Saturday

Another extremely cool thing schedule for this Saturday, August 6th{Co-Pilot} guitarist Brandon Lemons has put together an awesome, awesome show over at The Mink

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: David Bazan + Rocky Votolato (MP3!) + Featherface + Dann Halen + Matt The Electrician (MP3!) + Miss Leslie + More

Saturday, July 2nd today, and there’s plenty of good stuff going on in the runup to the 4th craziness… First & foremost is the David Bazan (“+ Band”) show at Fitzgerald’s

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1 (er, 2): The Elected + Featherface + Omotai + A Thousand Cranes + Praia Urbana + More

Sorry I missed last night’s show madness, folks — especially since there was a lot going on. Yours truly is traveling at the moment, and apparently all the nearby wifi networks are locked-down…

Summerfest 2011 Rundown, Pt. 2: Giant Princess + Finnegan + Free Rads + Neon Indian + Nosaprise + Outer Heaven + More

Next installment of little mini-writeups for Free Press Summerfest, right here; sorry, I meant for it to go up last night but ended up staying up late with a sick munchkin…

Live: Metal at The Mink

Okay, so I thought the reason I was looking unshaven and scruffy when I rolled into The Mink on a Saturday night about a month ago was because I’d gotten rushed that week and just didn’t have time to mess with the beard…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: By the End of Tonight Reunion/Benefit + No Pain For Zain + Mink Metal + Young The Giant Cancels + More

Doing the show rundown thing a little bit differently this weekend, I know, but it seems to be working okay, so what the hell — let’s keep it rolling, shall we? For tonight (Sat., March 5th) I’ve already talked about a couple of things that’re going on, like the awesomely heavy-sounding lineup…

A Night of Heavy, Loud, Metal Music, Coming Up This Weekend at The Mink

Got a very cool show coming up this Friday, March 5th at The Mink that I wanted to mention before the weekend madness is upon us… Mink booking honcho Brandon and Jaron from {Fight Pretty} have put together an awesome lineup…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Bad Religion + Ghost Town Electric + Appleseed Cast + Co-Pilot + Benjamin Wesley + Prince Paul + More

Got house-y type stuff to do tonight, so I’ve got to keep this relatively speedy, I’m afraid, but I didn’t want to let yet another night of awesome-looking musical-ness pass me (and you, possibly) by… Before I go into that, though, there’ve been a few noteworthy changes to the various schedules & shows…

Ghost Town Electric/Defending the Kingdom, Ghost Town Electric/Defending the Kingdom

Now, this is what vinyl’s really meant for, as far as I’m concerned: two sides of badass, heavy, bang-your-head rock on one solid slab of wax. Of course, in this case each side’s by a particular band, but since the bands in question are both heavy and raw…

Yr. (Late) Weekend, Pt. 1: Save KTRU/Fitz Relaunch II + Ghost Town Electric + Defending the Kingdom + More

Got the fam in town today (Friday, September 24th), so I’ve been a bit occupied, I’m afraid, and I’ve gotta keep it somewhat brief for the rundown… Been a rough week, folks, and I’m still playing catch-up….

Omotai, Peace Through Fear

Honestly, it’s apparent right from the first stagger-stomp second of opening track “What the Misanthrope Said” which way Omotai’s Peace Through Fear is going to go: heavy, thundering, hammer-like slabs of sound crushing you to the floor while the gods look on, laughing, from high, high above…
