Joel Gausten – LIVE REVIEW – Agnostic Front “United Blood 35th Anniversary Show:” Brooklyn Bazaar, 5/20/18

Here is a sample of Joel’s review of Agnotic Front’s United Blood 35th Anniversary Show: (Author’s Note: Due to scheduling, I was only able to catch Agnostic Front’s full set at the Black N’ Blue Bowl. I strongly encourage you go here to find out who else played that weekend and give those bands your support.) This past weekend was quite possibly the most important two days in the history of New York Hardcore. On Saturday, the Glenn Danzig-fronted version of legendary NJ/NY horror punks The Misfits played the Garden…

Joel Gausten – LIVE REVIEW: The Original Misfits/Suicidal Tendencies/Murphy’s Law/Harley “Cro-Mags” Flanagan: Prudential Center, 5/19/18

Here is a sample of Joel’s review of Misfits, Suicidal Tendencies, Murphy’s Law and Harley “Cro-Mags” Flanagan show: This was the show that mattered. For their fifth reunion show since reconvening in 2016, “The Original Misfits” (a.k.a. singer Glenn Danzig and bassist Jerry Only with long-serving guitarist Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein, second six-stringer Acey Slade and legendary drummer Dave Lombardo) finally touched down in their original home state of New Jersey for a sold-out show at Newark’s Prudential Center.

The Sideshow Podcast – Episode 345: Parkway Drive, Homewrecker, Ingested 2018 Album Reviews + Indiana Bandcamp Pick: Handsome Prick

In Search of Self As we get older and experience more heavy music and the many different styles, we hone in on what we like (and loathe).  We sometimes find ourselves enjoying styles we didn’t previously while outgrowing others.  For better or worse, bands do something similar with their own sound, that rarely sits well…at least while they are figuring that out. https://thesideshowpodcast.files.wordpress.com/2018/05/sideshow-345.m4a

100 Words Or Less: The Podcast – Mom and Son

Episode 305 – Happy pending Mother’s Day. I thought it would be interesting to speak in depth to my Mom who has had some cool musical experiences in the past as well as getting her take on what her thoughts were of her son, getting into weird independent music. I also thought it’d be interesting to speak to my 7 year old son and his passion for music. I think it’s a very interesting juxtaposition of how, generationally speaking, music has played a part in different people’s lives. Dive in…

Yeah, probably not.  We have some solid albums this week – including a beast of a Death Metal album (yeah, still keeping that rolling) – but we’re not sure any of them are “life changing.” However, we do discuss some albums that were game changers for us, and we invite you to discuss some of yours! https://thesideshowpodcast.files.wordpress.com/2018/04/sideshow-343.m4a

Yup, we have some more Death Metal!  And because it makes writing these things easier, I cam going to point this out until we have a week without a Death Metal act. That said, the majority of this episode actually is occupied by “core” bands, so maybe the end is nigh… https://thesideshowpodcast.files.wordpress.com/2018/04/sideshow-342.m4a
