You finally landed that gig that will put you on the map.  You put countless hours into practice and promotion, text everyone in your contacts list (even that girl you had a crush on back in high school ), and strike a deal with that shady promoter to sell 50 presale tickets, otherwise you’ll have to mortgage your parent’s house. After weeks of stressing out, the day is finally here. You pick out your best clothes, do all your pre-show rituals, and load into the venue. Now you are ready…

SKATERS Indie Live Reviews News Reviews Rock 

LIVE REVIEW: Skaters, Philadelphia, PA

I’ll admit, prior to Monday night I had no idea who SKATERS were. Judging solely by the their internet presence I gleaned that they were they a band with a lot of personality, but I was totally unprepared for what I was about to experience. As I descended the sticker crusted, outdated poster clad stairwell into Philadelphia’s Underground Arts, I was amused by the crowd. Sure, there were your typical twenty-something’s in their Misfit shirts, but there were also middle aged men, a lady who easily could have been my…

ALBUM REVIEW: Fritz Montana ‘Scaredy Cat’

At first listen, vocals from singer David Marshall will sound freakishly like Jack White and the band’s sound like that of the White Stripes (a compliment by all means, my friends). But with their own brand of blues and other combinations of indie sounds, Fritz Montana’s newest album Scaredy Cat not only mixes Jack White with a bit of Taking Back Sunday, (which let me tell you is actually a fantastic combination) but also brings forth an incredible sound that makes for an excellent listening experience. Having formed in early…
