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.

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!!
I can sum this concert up in three words: Ambrose Kenny-Smith. The Philly concert with King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard had a lot going on. It was the last show of my short run with the band, it was the show where my concert partner knew the band the least well, and it was the one where I made the most friends leading up … Continue reading King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard in Philadelphia
I have a long list of bands that I hope I’ll get around to getting to see. There’s a hierarchy of how far I’m willing to drive for who, what concerts are worth $15 and which are worth $50. Every once in a while I think a band goes onto the “gotta see em” list with just one song. Orb was a band like that … Continue reading ORB in Toronto, NYC, and Philly
I spend most of my time listening to King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard. They’re the only band that has come anywhere close to making me feel the way I feel about Ween, (my very favorite band). The seven piece Australian psych-rock group, if that’s even what they are, captured my imagination first with Nonagon Infinity, like a lot of fans, and I’ve been obsessed … Continue reading King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard in Toronto
