MISERY OBSCURA is Required Reading for Punks Old and New

I loved this book and then decided I had to pass it on to the next generation of music fans. Our (second) youngest writer was the logical choice to share my love for horror punk with – well, notably the Misfits, Danzig’s post-Misfits work does nothing for me. But I digress… Even if Samhain and…

Rachael’s Not Scared! Texas Frightmare is All That and a Bag of Severed Limbs!

Festivals are normally my go-to events, not conventions. I’ve been to the Toronto International Film Festival, New York Film Festival, Tribeca, Milwaukee Film Festival, Philadelphia Film Festival, and I’ve volunteered at Sundance for the past two years (and continue to do so). Each of these festivals, I go to dig deeper into all the genres…

The Best Overlooked Indie Music of 2013

Indie music is an enigma. It’s both the new punk rock and the new mainstream. Everything, today, is labeled indie—and like emo before it—the word has lost its meaning. So when I say, “The Best Overlooked Indie Music,” let’s just say it means underexposed and really good. I think you, too, will enjoy these picks.…
