Pat Graham brings the DC-centric goods in this new collection of over a decade’s worth of his music photos. Matthew Moyer feels like he has an all-access pass.
O-Rock 105.9 may have really dropped the ball on this year’s annual No Snow Show by splitting it into two separate shows, but at least they scored Jimmy Eat World and Silverchair to co-headline the second night of the event. Jen Cray was amongst the masses at Orlando’s House of Blues trying to convince themselves that the pair was enough to justify the pricey ticket.
Smile For Them (Sire). Review by Jen Cray.
Quo Vadimus (Jump Start). Review by Jen Cray.
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.
Victory Records has taken a chance on an experimental indie rock band that put out one of 2006’s most exciting debuts. Moros Eros are going to blow up in 2007. Jen Cray spoke with lead singer/guitarist/lyricist, Zach Tipton , while he enjoyed what could very well be his last couple weeks of anonymity at home in Georgia.
Living Things are a rock band from St. Louis who are bound and determined to remind music fans that rock ‘n’ roll is supposed to be dirty. John Hood explains their live show, as Jen Cray shows you the proof.

Wallpaper the Witness (Birds Go South). Review by Terry Eagan.
More than two decades into their career, Bad Religion have delivered their most focused critique of an American presidency. The Empire Strikes First pulls aside the curtain of Christianity and “homeland security” to reveal the men at the controls. Eric J. Iannelli hopes it hasn’t come too late.
Daniel Mitchell discusses free health care, Krishnas, and Crownhate Ruin with the gentlemen of True North.
