Mad Lad A Live Tribute to Chuck Berry (BMG). Review by Joe Frietze.
Seeping Beauty E.P. (Fat Wreck Chords). Review by Jen Cray.
Brothers and Smugglers (Creator-Destructor Records). Review by Carl F Gauze.
Alkaline Trio can make a collar bone sexy, can make a tattoo needle feel like a numbing tickle, and can make Jen Cray sit through an emo band just to see them play, yet again.
The Wolf You Feed (Volcom). Review by Jen Cray.
Damnesia (Epitaph Records). Review by May Terry.
Alkaline Trio celebrate 15 years of sweetly poppy gloom and doom with a greatest hits tour that allows them time to strip it all down for the fans. Jen Cray witnessed the bare bones at the band’s Orlando date.
Damnesia (Epitaph). Review by Jen Cray.
The lineup isn’t as important as the experience when it comes to the Van’s Warped Tour. Jen Cray smeared on some sunblock and took in the annual summertime tradition when the traveling circus hit Orlando.
3D Radio. Review by Jen Cray.
Alkaline Trio can always be counted on to bring the same consistent formula of pop punk goodness to every show. Jen Cray, alongside a packed House of Blues audience in Orlando, contemplated whether or not their consistency is predictable, or comforting.
Jen Cray discusses brainwashing, politics, war, and even a little bit of music with Rise Against drummer Brandon Barnes.
Appeal to Reason (DGC/Interscope). Review by Jen Cray.
Jen Cray is thoroughly rocked by a triple bill of Rise Against, Thrice, and Alkaline Trio. All killer, no filler? The point can be argued…
An Evening of Bad Decisions (Black Numbers). Review by Jen Cray.
A recent Alkaline Trio show at Orlando’s House of Blues revitalized a stale summer of live shows for Jen Cray.
Nothing to Prove (Bridge Nine). Review by Jen Cray.
Agony & Irony (Epic). Review by Jen Cray.
There’s something so pure about a bill of up-and-coming bands playing a tiny bar with no stage. Such was the locale of Broadway Calls’ Orlando stop. Jen Cray relished in the simplicity of a d.i.y. punk show.
Arrivals & Departures (Victory). Review by Jen Cray.
