  • Vinyl! Vinyl! Vinyl!

    Fans of vinyl even got on their knees to dig through the many crates. I happened upon two favorite albums that I didn't own on vinyl: Mount Kimbie's "Crooks and Lovers" and "Exodus" from Bob Marley and the Wailers, so I took them home of course!

    Oxford, Mississippi rockers Bass Drums of Death played their NXNE show in the midst of their US tour, which includes 29 shows in 38 days! These guys must pack a storehouse of energy because they threw down the house, proving that sleep deprivation is so very METAL!

    Molly Hamilton of the Brooklyn trio Widowspeak sang softly into the microphone, as the tightly packed audience hung onto every emotively murmured lyric of the band's popular ballads.
