Ween in New Haven + NYC (Night One), Valentine’s Day

It hadn’t been that long since I’d seen Ween leading up to this Valentine’s Weekend run. Only a few months ago I was waiting in line to see Ween in Boston and Philly. So when I parked my car in New Haven, CT, and met my friend in line, it felt like things were back to the way they’re supposed to be. There’s almost no … Continue reading Ween in New Haven + NYC (Night One), Valentine’s Day

Ween at Terminal 5, 2/15/2020 (Night Two)

By the end of Ween’s Valentine’s Weekend run, I was already feeling pretty lucky. Sure, in line we were sharing our final hopes, songs that we wanted to hear before we had to call it quits. I may have whined a bit about how badly I wanted to hear Laura. But the show that we got was better than hearing any one request. I couldn’t … Continue reading Ween at Terminal 5, 2/15/2020 (Night Two)

Frankie and the Witch Fingers in Toronto

Every time I’m back in the Rochester area, Frankie and the Witch Fingers are there too. I was already planning a trip back to my ex-home city when my concert buddy let me know that the Witch Fingers were going to be playing a city over on Saturday night. After their electric performance at the Bug Jar in Rochester, NY — after which I was … Continue reading Frankie and the Witch Fingers in Toronto

A Love Letter to Headbanging- Meatbodies and More at Great Scott

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

Tropical Fuck Storm at Great Scott in Allston, MA

I actually came really close to not going to this show. Tropical Fuck Storm is kind of an intense band. The group is a recent project by Garreth Liddiard and Fiona Kitschin of The Drones, Erica Dunn of MOD CON, and Lauren Hammel of High Tension. I find their songs are often aggressive, atonal, and generally pretty heavy. Sometimes, their brand of weird perfectly hits … Continue reading Tropical Fuck Storm at Great Scott in Allston, MA

King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard in Philadelphia

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

King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard in Toronto

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
