LIVE REVIEW: The Sound of Animals Fighting, Philadelphia, PA

The Sound of Animals Fighting really seem like more of a prog-rock/post-hardcore circus than an experimental rock supergroup.  As I stood pressed up against the front row of slackers, I recognized the guitar-tech/stage-hand to be Peace’d Out’s bassist.  And let me tell you something, when the guy taping down setlists and strategically placing bottles of water on stage is a more talented bassist than most, you can only imagine how mind-blowing the actual band is about to be.  Before the show, the sound guy is playing rounds of Jawbreaker hits…

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,…

The Recent Reunion Resurgence & Our Nostalgia Obsession

Nostalgia is strange, and in the current hip culture of 2014 it’s even more bizarre than it used to be.  Now I don’t mean to be nostalgic about nostalgia, but there used to be a time when nostalgic things that we joyously reminisced about stayed in the past, exactly where we remembered them just as we remembered them; all perfect and cleaned up by years of misremembering—and most importantly, in the past.  But recently, we seem to have this fascination with all things ‘90s or vintage and relating to our…
