In 2019, there was nowhere that I would rather be than Great Scott in Allston, Massachusetts. I live about 3.5 hours (on a good day) outside of Boston, so every time I go to Great Scott, it’s a bit of a pilgrimage. That’s one of my favorite things about the venue- I love making a whole day out of a show. Once I’m in Allston, … Continue reading Venue of the Year 2019: Great Scott in Allston, MA
Ween shows are one of the places that make me feel like I’m home. In a part of my life when I’m embracing a nomadic attitude (I don’t think I’ve been home for the weekend since September), spaces where I feel this way are really special. And this show (my 6th time seeing Ween) was made even more special because my older brother, the person … Continue reading Ween, House of Blues, Boston MA
My seventh Ween show! This time returning to a city I visited for the first time this year to see the other band that I’m totally obsessive over. Philadelphia has really become one of my favorite cities this year, and I was happy to find an excuse to sneak in 24 hours in the town. I’m accustomed to arriving at a Ween show 3-4 hours … Continue reading Ween, The Met, Philadelphia PA
It’s been almost a year since the last time I saw Ween. Honestly, the thought immediately puts me down in the dumps. But luckily, Maine is a weirdly good place to live if you’re into Ween. In a census done of Ween Fans (by Ween Fans), Portland Maine was named the 10th best city in the country for Ween fans per capita. I think there’s … Continue reading Paintin’ P-Town Brown – my favorite city celebrates my favorite band
In the interest of full transparency, Meatbodies weren’t the headliner of the show I went to. Psychadelic Porn Crumpets, from Perth, AUS, were the band on the ticket. And I do like the Porn Crumpets (even though I cringed every time one of me coworkers asked me what band I had seen over the weekend), so I was excited that these two were sharing a … Continue reading A Love Letter to Headbanging- Meatbodies and More at Great Scott
The developed disposable camera photos from my Gizzard trip. Rochester Dylan Sizemore from Frankie and the Witch Fingers. Toronto The ice cream cone that wouldn’t stop dripping. Orb. This picture is (obviously) extremely special to me. New York City Hannah Findlay of Stonefield My first ever NYC slice. Philly Most of the photos from the actual concerts didn’t come out quite the way I expected. … Continue reading Scrapbook: Road Trip 2019
While I was finishing school, I would spend hours in a private editing room, working on my thesis film and looking for new music. This is how I found a lot of the bands that I’ve been really into this year, like Khruangbin and The Murlocs. One of the last bands I found that really made an impression was Frankie and the Witch Fingers, from … Continue reading WOAH! Frankie and the Witch Fingers in Rochester!!
