Dark Was the Night (Red Hot Organization). Review by Tim Wardyn.
Here Anonymous (Dangerbird). Review by Jen Cray.
A mind-boggler – not one, but two bands from Tacoma have been performing almost as long as rock ‘n’ roll has been on the radio. Is Pacific Northwest drinking water a fountain of youth? Steve Stav ponders such longevity in his review of the Fabulous Wailers and the Ventures.

Jen Cray hoofs it to Orlando’s HOB, where she gets an amped-up dose of Ted Leo and the Pharmacists and sticks around for a satisfying Against Me! set.

Forgone Conclusion… (Broken Halo Records/In Music We Trust). Review by Tim Wardyn.
A Collection of Short Stories (Skyeyesea). Review by Carl F Gauze.
