Joe Sib, Eric Lincoln Hurst Live Show Review

Going into Joe Sib’s one-man show, California Calling, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Various reviews of the show online had it pegged as everything from humorous storytelling, to loose-format spoken word, to straight-up stand-up. And, like a real entertainer, Sib gave a show that was everything and then some. Rendezvous Seattle, WA 2011 –...Read...

Terrible Things – Self-Titled Album Review

When Fred Mascherino left Taking Back Sunday, many people thought he’d played himself. Then he released The Color Fred and doubts were thrown to the wayside. For his new project, Terrible Things, Mascherino has been joined by Hot Rod Circuit frontman, Andy Jackson, and former Coheed And Cambria drummer, Josh Eppard. Anyone who’s been familiar...Read...

Rufio – Anybody Out There Album Review

Love them or hate them, Rufio’s brand of Southern California pop-punk is equal parts melody and slick guitar noodling. A majority of their appeal lies heavily on singer Scott Sellers’ ability to convincingly sing about a myriad of topics whether it’s the fickle scene or girls who’ve crushed him. There’s absolutely no reason why Rufio...Read...
