THE RUNDOWN – 11.24.2014 – 11.30.2014

The holidays are a funny thing. Reflection and gratitude. Family time and naps to escape family time. The internal struggle of “corporate tradition” vs “free food.” I don’t really mind it. Got a good dad and a warm home, so color me thankful. If you can’t make it home this year, let me know, and…

THE RUNDOWN – 11.17.2014 – 11.23.2014

Weather’s about to strike us down. COLD colds, last of the leaves gone. Don’t let it get you down. Like weeds in the sidewalk crack, good shows are resilient. They never go away completely. Angel Olsen is at Mercy Lounge on Wednesday, Paul Metzger is at the Emma Bistro on Thursday, and Thee Oh Sees…

COME BACK TO ME PLEASE

A truly great record is one of the best gifts you could give this world. It’s honesty and hopefulness unconstrained. No one can touch it. We live in a time where freak viruses cause transatlantic terror and grey-haired poobahs spend their days trying to tell us what’s right and wrong. It’s enough to make you…
