  • Off With Their Heads

    Off With Their Heads

    Encores at tiny punk rock shows?! They’re rare, but Jen Cray and a whole bunch of hungry fans dug this one.

  • Dance of Days

    Dance of Days

    Akashic Press expands, redesigns, and re-releases Mark Anderson and Mark Jenkins‘s invaluable DIY learning tool, Dance of Days. Even better, it’s just as energizing as the first read. What were YOU up to at age 16?

  • Be Your Own Pet

    Be Your Own Pet

  • Punk House

    You Say Party! We Say Die!

    Lose All Time (Paper Bag). Review by Jen Cray.

  • Arctic Monkeys

    Arctic Monkeys

    A large percentage of America may not know it yet, but the Arctic Monkeys have already conquered their native England and are setting their sights on our shores. Jen Cray was not surprised that the band’s Orlando date was a complete sell out.



    Speaking with vocalist Vice Cooler and guitarist Steve Touchstone of the undefinable trio of XBXRX, Jen Cray got them to talk about the brilliance of Kill Rock Stars, recording with Ian Mackaye and Steve Albini and how their live shows have resulted in permanent scarring.



    Wars (Polyvinyl). Review by Jen Cray.

  • The Ettes

    The Ettes

    A last minute switch-around transformed The Ettes headlining gig at Orlando’s The Social into a benefit show for the Invisible Children organization. On a bill stacked with local talent, Jen Cray saw the Los Angeles trio steal the show despite their less than prime time 9:15 performance.

  • The Randies
