Music Was Here: Up For Nothing, Playing Dead, Vinny & the Hooligans, Horrible Timing @ Lucky 13 (or plz turn down the volume)

Up for Nothing had a release show and I ended up editing this review, because it was just a lot of “wow this show is waaaaay too loud, this isn’t fun” complaints back and forth. Marcus had earplugs and saw some bands. Maaike sat outside most of the show. Hey, life is what it is …

Music Was Here: Elway, The Holy Mess, SKiTTiSH iSH @ Sovereign (or we had too many hangs to write much)

We went to shows, we drank and talked while at them and then… we did nothing. Time to make up for it, because this Elway / The Holy Mess / SKiTTiSH iSH show was a blast and a good return after leaving the country for three weeks. You are of closer proximity to bar so …

Music Was Here: Skramz @ Saint Vitus and Jon Snodgrass @ Mercury Lounge (05/29)

You know what vacation does? It makes you forget about reviews. Back in May, Marcus went to a skramz show and we met up to see Jon Snodgrass. It’s a double-header for a day we almost forgot about! When normies call brunch I call skramz (matinee) hours What you call skramz hours I call getting …

Music Was Here: No Trigger, Heart & Lung, Neckscars @ Sovereign (or in excelsis fucking tonight)

LFG While Neckscars soundchecks, I am imagining how many steps you’re getting in In bathroom breaks. A lot, just you watch This is gonna be such a short review for the reason of “too much fun and friends” Damn Neckscars just doesn’t disappoint. New drummer seems to dig playing for them, has a more dynamic …

Music Was Here: Topshelf Shake, Something Bitter, Wrecked, Two Minute Thrills @ Sovereign (or it’s always 311 somewhere)

Running late! I want to make excuses but really, I was laying on the couch staring at my phone and tried to cram 20 minutes of prep to get out in 5 Which as well all know turns to 50 minutes in reality because of that (also DOGS gonna DOGGGGGG) Oh dogs definitely make 5 …

Marcus was Here: SOM, Light Tower, Restless Spirit @ Elsewhere (or space rock is not Nyan Cat)

Posting about the gig from a basement with dodgy reception as ours lolol fade me Poor you. How’s it? Ok, test post works? It was ok. Probably not the most annoying when I get my bearings. Didn’t help I drank myself behind the 8 ball a bit en route. Ah yeah, our poor bank account …

Music Was Here: Big D & the Kids Table @ Bowery Ballroom (or Marcus learns how to skank)

We forgot all about our drunk writing until a band or two in. We missed the Pandemics (again – will we ever end up seeing them?) and walked in during Rude Girl Revue, which was the most fun thing ever. Right after, this conversation became a thing. Marcus? You’re even at this show? Ohhhhh shit …
