Bunk, The Matter and Podcasts

It's going to be a long sweaty night.  We have a lot to talk about. If you don't come you're going to be so out of the loop it will take years for you to recover.

The Matter
Wake the Matter
@The Fire

I've been dreaming about a music podcast and inviting bands over for some beers and sessions that we'll record and put up on the Internets.  We'll compare guitars.  What pedal is working? What's a peice of shit? We can talk about frustrations and successes. We can be nothing and everything. Can it happen?  Should it happen?  I feel like I've got some  responsibility to see how far this goes now that I've had the idea. Let me know your thoughts.


April 26th Show - Beyonder at Bourbon & Branch


I hear this place has some decent food and a great bourbon selection up in that Northern Liberties neighborhood. Get there early with your hot date and stay for the kick ass music up stairs. These guys just built a stage equipped with a smoke machine and proper theater lights. All of which will most likely enhance our experience while we pretend we're at the Garden or Spectrum circa '93.
