OF MONTREAL + Poorfolk @ La Sala Rossa

By Dan - Rocks In Your Head - 04/24/2005

It's not often we get to experience an Athens, GA band in concert, in Montreal, in the spring time. But when it happens, rest assured that yours truly will be there, without a doubt


MWARD + Norfolk & Western @ MWARD + Norfolk & Western

By Dan - Rocks In Your Head - 04/16/2005

Having had the opportunity to see Devendra Banhart in concert recently, I was looking forward to Mward's upcoming show at La Sala Rossa. You see, these types of shows are tricky. People don't seem genuinely ready for the influx of folk artists in 'the scene'. There's almost too much going on these days. All you have to do is check out the gig-list at Esoteric or somewhere online; Montreal is a haven for live venues and shows these days, thanks in part to the lovely promoters at Blue Skies Turn Black.


NEW ENGLAND METAL & HARDCORE FESTIVAL: Day 1 @ Palladium

By DCU - No Sleep Til Bedtime - 04/22/2005

Wake up early in Montreal, head to the border expecting the worst… AND nothing; 20 seconds talking to the border guard and away we were to the most incredible metal concert North America has to offer (of course after stocking up on Labatt 50s, JD, and Jager’s at the Duty-Free).


STRAYLIGHT RUN + Honorary Title + Gratitude + more @ Cabaret La Tulipe

By Mikey B - The Lonesome Strangers - 05/04/2005

In the last week, I’ve been privileged to see some amazing bands. Motörhead robbed me of my aural virginity, Goldfinger rocked my pants off and Straylight Run put me to sleep.


GARBAGE @ Metropolis

By Ash - Primetime! With Ash and Leeland - 04/24/2005


FISCHERSPOONER - Odyssey

By Dan - Rocks In Your Head - 04/05/2005

Okay, admittedly this is not a full, encompassing review. I have neither the time nor the urge to do a full review. So instead, I'll hit you kids up with a two-part review, splitting this new Fischerspooner CD in half. Here goes part 1:

(Get your mofo booty on the dance floor, people!)

That should be the entire review, but I'll flesh it out a little for your reading pleasure.


ARSENIQ 33 + Floating Widget + Wolfunkind @ Cabaret

By Johnnybot - Turn Down the Suck - 04/29/2005

This show had a bit of an odd bill. While both Arseniq 33 and Floating Widget are very good bands, they are completely different from each other. The contrast was a little too strong and the show suffered from it despite individually good sets.
