Neon Shirt

Saw the above t-shirt at Warped on Tuesday. It may just be a shirt, but nowadays fashion is oft as important – if not the important – as the music that a band chooses to define itself. In My So Called Punk, Matt Diehl notes the clashes between “emo” kids and traditional R[...]

Way To Go Joe

I’ve got some more stuff over at Bostonist today, this time with some big names in emo and underground music history: Joe Lally and Glorytellers. The former is the bass player of Fugazi, the later is fronted by Geoff Farina of Karate (who I’ll be interviewing for America Is Just A Word w[...]

Ice Cream Is Gonna Save The Day, Again

Check out Bostonist today for my recap of the first day of this year’s Scooper Bowl. It’s nice to get away and do a little something different from my usual music and gig reviews .(and even in the course of this blog, discuss something not related to emo every so often!) For folks in the[...]
