In The Spotlight: Sammy Kay

I think at some point in every music fans’ life, we fall in love with a complete stranger because of the way they hold a guitar, or they way they sing those sad songs that get you right in the ticker. Sammy Kay is one of those people. If I weren’t way too cool to use slang words in an unironic way, I’d most definitely tell you that this New Brunswick dude is dripping swagger out of every pore. But I’m an adult, so instead I’ll say that Sammy Kay…

To Fangirl Or Not To Fangirl

Hi, I’m Lauren. The first concert I ever saw was The Monkees when I was six and I’m pretty sure that makes me cooler than you. I cry at the end of La Bamba every single time even though I know how it ends, and I think The White Stripes version of “Jolene” may well be better than the original. I have had a whole ton of really awesome experiences that most people only dream about. I’ve worked for record labels, booked shows at really cool venues all over the…

PLAYLIST: Alternative 4th of July

It is officially Independence Day weekend, traditionally filled with fireworks, barbecues, camping, s’mores and good-old American beer drinking. And you know what else? Country music. But …here at Infectious we aren’t always the biggest fans of that particular genre. That’s why I’ve created something special for you: a list of 12 songs to party to this weekend that are reminiscent of the country in which we live, and for the most part don’t make too many political statements (although for the sake of punk and hardcore this was a bit hard…

Spotlight: Jared Hart (The Scandals)

Youth Brigade claims that old punks don’t die, they just cash in. I’m not really all that old, but I think they might just be right. As with any mildly tormenting life event worth its salt, there are many stages. There’s denial, (“These new Doc Martens hurt my back. No of course it’s not just my sciatica!”), there’s confusion, (“What is an Antiserum and why is it playing Warped Tour?”) and then there’s anger, (“Damnit Danzig! Just stop it!’). But every now and then there’s a light in the dark….

SHOW REVIEW: Brian Marquis

I have this overwhelming fear of writing reviews. Interviewing artists? No sweat. But watching them play and then writing about it strikes a fear into this little heart of mine that rivals the sinking feeling in my stomach when I can’t see my kid on the playground. What if they’re awful? What if I can’t find a single good thing to say about them and every artist I’ve ever respected reads that one review and now no one will ever talk to me? See? It’s terrifying. The only thing that…

INTERVIEW: Brian Marquis

Situated beneath the town’s mascot Tilly, Asbury Park’s Wonderbar is a favorite venue for locals and benny’s as well (that’s a tourist for those of you not in the know). As with the rest of the shore town, it’s got a not so secret soft spot for The Boss, but lately it’s been playing host to new acts that are just as talented. Tonight its guests are Brian Marquis and the rest of the Acoustic Basement Tour. Before the show I met up with Brian and discussed his upcoming album,…

ALBUM REVIEW: The Coffis Brothers And The Mountain Men ‘Wrong Side of the Road’

The Coffis Brothers And The Mountain Men’s second album, Wrong Side of the Road, begins with “I’m Gonna Find You.” The song’s medium-paced, steady riff welcomes the listener into a vibrant concoction of classic American sounds. Throughout the album, the music is very melodic, making it comfortable and easy listening — qualities that often make an album a classic. At the same time, Wrong Side of the Road challenges the listener by veering away from the mainstream and, instead, presenting a vintage Americana  sound: a blend of American music from different genres…
