Thursday: Angelcorpse “Extermination” tour — with such a delightfully wholesome name, we will clearly be in for a delightful evening of lovely bluegrass tunes down at Valhalla. I know sarcasm doesn’t translate particularly well via the written word, but I hope it was evident in this case. If you’re looking for a bit of fire […]

I was working the camera at a livestream for 95bFM up in Auckland when I first saw Fazerdaze play. It was in the middle of a 20 Bands in Two Hours event for the NZ music show, a little over halfway in. Amelia Murray played a semi acoustic version of “Shoulders” (having only named it […]

Otoboke Beaver are a no-holds-barred, wild punk band made up of four women from Kyoto, Japan. They work full-time at standard, respectable jobs during the week, and spend their weekends on jaunts around Japan throwing walls of screaming sound at their audiences. Their lyrics are entirely in Japanese, and they have recently made waves at […]

I was not in a good mood when Pauly Lowe of Raw Collective asked me to review his band/collective’s upcoming gig/fundraiser, billed as their “last show for a while.” Stress of assignments and bouts of homesickness, coupled with the everyday hell of living at 222 Willis Street, had taken their toll on a usually positive […]

Wednesday: Eyegum Wednesdays with Aw B and Mongo Skato — Prepare for a deluge of doof doof, with delightful old school disco, techno, and house sounds bumping through San Fran until the wee hours. And by the wee hours, I mean probably 12.00pm at the latest because Eyegum is nothing if not purveyors of great […]
