Gigan, Pyrrhon Announce Tour


Now this is one, I’ll be ultra pissed if I miss. I usually forget bands are coming through town. Until, like, the day of the show, and very often, I’ve already got cemented plans or not enough cash to get there and back AND get a ticket. It’s fucking $30 in tolls if I drive, […]

Puya To Release Live Album


Remember Puya? Chances are you don’t. Puya are a Puerto Rican metal band who were somewhat popular during my college days in the late 1990s. They have a fun band name. It’s just fun to say.

Suffokate Drop Off Tour After Losing Two Members
