You know those shows you put on your calendar six months before they actually happen? Sunday night at Atwood’s was one of those for me.

If you weren’t able to catch either one of the shows (or the matinee set by the Honeys on Sunday,) it’s likely safe to say you planned poorly. Don’t let it happen again. In case you’re unfamiliar, Colter Wall is the 22-year old Canadian country/folk artist who—in a very short time—has drawn (deserved) comparisons to the…

Mixtape | October 2017

Press Play October was a spooky good month for new music, and I’m psyched for the broad range of music that we’ve got on this playlist. Everything from power pop jams to jangly americana to lo-fi ambling indie rock. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. As always if there’s something I missed, please leave a comment and tell me what it is.

Photos + Review | Black Pistol Fire & Blackfoot Gypsies @ The Sinclair

It’s becoming a recurring scene, the Music Savage gang flocking to the Sinclair to catch even a glimpse of the nuclear power factory that is Black Pistol Fire. On the heels of their most recent release, Deadbeat Graffiti, the YYZ come ATX band descended on our little town to set our hair on fire. Opening the night was Nashville’s Blackfoot Gypsies, whom against most any other band could steal the show. Their southern rock / blues / americana sound brings the sound of the Stones and Chuck Berry with a rock-and-roll swagger that is nearly unmatched. Playing songs from their…
