REVIEW: The Gaslight Anthem Take Us Home One Last Time (Asbury Park, NJ)

Days into my Freshman year at a now defunct arts school thousands of miles away from home, I got dumped. Hard. Not only dumped, but replaced. Which, for an overly dramatic, heartbroken, homesick college co-ed, was just the worst thing ever. I wandered the mean streets of Chester, New Hampshire desperately searching for a place that felt like home to sit and lick my wounds. On one particularly cliche and dramatic night, I found myself wandering the graveyard alone. Laid flat on my back atop a quintessentially New England stone…

The Scandals Features Guest Blogs 

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….

PLAYLIST: Fest 13

Fest is a multi-venue, now multi-city punk and alternative music event held in the middle of the swampland state in late October/early November.  Going on its 13th year, many of the bands on the line-up this year are Fest veterans.  While I could sit here and insist how cool this festival will be with headliners like The Descendents, Less Than Jake, The Menzingers, Strike Anywhere, Kepi Ghoulie, Chuck Ragan, and the Flatliners (especially if they decide to play anything off of their first album), there are going to be so…

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,…

Show Review: The Revival Tour 2013 Philadelphia, PA

I don’t know what I would do without Chuck Ragan. He doesn’t let me crash on his floor, or buy me thoughtful birthday presents (that’s not to say that he wouldn’t, because I think he totally would), but without even knowing it, he has restored my faith in the music industry. All too often you go to a show and you leave thinking how nice it was. Nice? Personally, I feel that when it comes to music, the only time “nice” should suffice is if you’re sitting in an elementary…
