‘You look tired’. I am an introvert with slightly downturned features who struggles with chronic anemia, so yes, I know. I really wish perfect strangers would stop mentioning it. You might be well-intentioned, but it always comes off as rude. No, I was not up unusually late last night. No, it’s not really any of […]Read More Concert: Refugees of Steampunk Extravaganza
This post is so overdue that it’s not even funny. The event was in May, FFS! I have no excuse. I’m just lazy. But, because I’m lazy, and this post should have happened 2 months ago, it’s going to be an overview of the bands I saw rather than any sort of in depth analysis. […]Read More Steampunk World’s Faire 2017 (…yes, I am incredibly late on this post. I know.)
I’m going to say some things in this post that some people aren’t going to like. Suck it up. I’ve just been kicked in the head well over a dozen times and might wake up with a fat lip; I’m understandably a bit cranky. So, allow me to cut through all the fluff and get […]Read More How Not to be a ‘Complete’ Douche at a Punk Rock show – aka, Bad Religion and Against Me! at the Starland Ballroom.
Okay, so I forgot I didn’t post this oh…uh…almost a month ago. I wrote it on the sly from work, and then I forgot about it completely. Now, as hiking weather gives way to suffocating heat (seriously guys, I have central air, but my bedroom still gets pretty darn warm due to the vent not […]Read More A Very Belated Post about the Halo show at the Court Tavern
I had such plans today, guys. Okay, so most of those plans involved napping (LOTS of napping), but there were totally other plans. I was supposed to have the house to myself until around 6 pm, on my recovery day before heading back to work tomorrow, but NOOO. Roomie’s had a minor car issue and […]Read More Steampunk World’s Fair, exausted summary
So, I spent the day debating on whether or not to go to this show tonight. One of my comic friends was going to be performing, and one part of me thought ‘it’s good to get out of the house’. Another part of me wasn’t sure if it could will itself to be bothered with people. […]Read More WAMP Series: Robin Renee
You know, I haven’t been in the Wonder Bar for a show in years. I don’t know exactly how many. I have to use life landmarks to try to figure it out. The last show I saw there was Bowling for Soup with Patent Pending and the Dollyrots. Now, when could that have been? Well, […]Read More Shaman’s Harvest @ Wonder Bar, Asbury Park
Well, it was a wet, windy 40 degree day here in Jersey. To be honest, it was gross enough that when the figurative bell tolled at 5 pm, I thought ‘ugh, am I really going to a concert tonight?’ Granted, concerts are always fun, but there was definitely that hardcore introvert moment of ‘All I […]Read More Where’s The Band? @ House of Independents
The trouble with going to concerts in the winter is having no idea how to dress. You don’t want to use the coat check, but you also don’t want to carry a coat all night in a packed concert venue. You don’t want to overlayer because you’ll sweat to death once things get rolling, but […]Read More The Trouble with Winter.
Yesterday, I finally got to see Social Distortion. It was also the only time I’ve been down to the Stone Pony this season. It’s funny how things happen. Social D always hits the Stone Pony summerstage somewhere towards the end of summer, and I always want to go, and I never make it. The fact […]Read More Concert: Social Distortion @ the Stone Pony Summer Stage
