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)

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
