Best of 2021 | Steve

This year has been something. Again. Thankfully, we saw the return of live music, albeit in a limited fashion. If this whole mess—and the tenuousness of not only every show but my comfort with attending those shows—has taught me anything, its that for far too long we as fans have taken for granted the lengths our favorite musicians go to, to allow us to enjoy their music in person. This past year they not only shouldered the load they normally did, they also put themselves and their families at risk to make our lives a better place to live. I…

Best of 2021 | Ryan D.

Wow, once again it feels like it has been the longest year since last year!

2020 | Steve’s Best of the Year

What. Thefuck. Wasthat? Whatever it was, we made it to the end of 2020 and boy it couldn’t come soon enough. I, for one, can’t wait to bathe in the waters of a New Year like it will bring absolute resolution to all the crap that has been going down in our world. Will that happen? Who knows. But, at this point, any glimmer of hope is one that I’ll hang onto. To say 2020 was a strange one is no novel statement. There were times when I turned to music to get me through each passing moment and there…
