Ween, House of Blues, Boston 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

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
