It’s happening! Come to Lit Lounge (93 2nd Ave between 5th and 6th streets), this Thursday, the 24th. Igloos are on at 9. We can’t be bargained with. We can’t be reasoned with. We don’t feel pity or remorse. And we absolutely will not stop, ever, until your socks are totally rocked off.

I’m so excited about the possibility of a Stardust action figure that I might just shoot specialized rays.

The second rock concert I went to as a kid was an epic, gloriously 90s triple bill of Screaming Trees, Soul Asylum, and the Spin Doctors. I think If I’ve done my detective work correctly, this was literally Soul Asylum’s set from that night. My dad held my eyes open for this.

Hells yeah. Looking forward to seeing you on July 24th at Lit Lounge. More info to come soon.

Hail Satan, everybody, ok?

This is a rare video I found from the first real rock concert I ever went to. Metallica, touring for the black album, at the Allentown Fair. I was pretty young, so I went with my dad, and he made me cover my then-virtuous eyes during this part.

In retrospect, he was right. I couldn’t have handled this.

Who’s excited for tomorrow?

My (probable) only appearance: Name Squad at UCB East! 2:10 am as Saturday turns to Sunday! Plenty of time after the end of 9:00 Igloos show to get to this dumb thing.
