Contest:: Win 2Tix to Dog Day, Apollo Ghosts & Bird World @ The Seahorse

If you were like me, and real life forced you to miss Sappyfest this weekend, you apparently missed a life changing weekend that peaked when Charles Bradley took the stage. Fear not sad reader, as this Friday you can attend one of the best shows to hit Halifax in forever. Dog Day, Apollo Ghosts & [...]

Whale Skin - Lady (Live)


I don’t really know anything about Whale Skin, other than that they are apparently from Halifax and they make some funky electronic jams, and that’s good enough for me really.

Union of the Snake - Decades


Hot damn this is heavy, but when it’s a new group featuring pieces of Kestrels and VKNGS, what do you expect? Grab this jam from their new 7″ split with Stalwart Sons.

It’s to be expected, especially when you are asking people to record covers on their own time and their own dime.   Considering that he’s become a road warrior - and actually had to try to [...]

Best-of ’11:: Tongan Death Grip Chula Vista

There was a time when pop punk wasn’t a bad word and buzzsaw guitar and sing-along choruses didn’t seek refuge at Hot Topic outlets. Records were found by zine mail orders or cheap comps handed out at shows. Before bands like Simple Plan were shitting out songs for tweens, The Lillingtons, The Queers, Good Riddance [...]

The 25th Anniversary edition of the Halifax Jazzfest kicks off this weekend, and does so in fine style. Not only will there be a Jazz-party cruise featuring much-loved Halifax klezmer-funketeers Gypsophilia [...]
