COVER: "I FOUGHT THE LAW"
memorymemory: In light of recent events, I thought this was appropriate. I FOUGHT THE LAW (COVER) by Adam Taylor Young My summer roommate and good friend Adam Young was assaulted by cops Saturday night. You can read his story from the Allston Tumblr page here. Thankfully this is getting some local news attention, but I’m even more glad that Adam had the good humor to turn this...

This is awesome. I met Justin this summer, and he gave me a hug. All around solid dudes, and creepy awesome video.
ROBOT MESSIAH UPDATE
Hey guys, remember when I said I was working for the Phoenix? It was a wild and crazy summer, and now I’m back at UNH for the year, but I’m still doing a few things for the Phoenix, including my new column New Sampshire, so things at Robot Messiah are probably going to consist mainly of embedding music players without much writing… I’m busy. I love you all, but I am busy....
MY SOAP BOX SPEECH TO PUNKS WHO HIT THEIR...
Last Wednesday at the OFF WITH THEIR HEADS/DEAD TO ME/THE HOLY MESS/FAKE BOYS show at Great Scott, I was reminded why some punks are there to celebrate solidarity and positive cultural change, and some are only there to get belligerent and hurt people. Everyone goes to punk shows for different reasons. Punk music and ethics have always been divided by nature, but the inherently violent...
Old Gray: Bon Voyage, Old Gray →
oldgray: i’d like to first start by thanking everyone that have made these past months feel like the best months of our lives. it brings me much dismay to inform you that we will be going on hiatus after our show this saturday.

New Track: "This Moment In Time"

DIRTY VIRGINS - WHISKEY DICK
Two weeks ago, Allston’s newest garage punk band Dirty Virgins put out their debut EP Whiskey Dick. If you missed it’s release on July 4th, but are still aware that the kids in Allston have been shooting fireworks every day since the 4th, you know that there’s still time to party. The DV’s do everything the right way: raw, crude, and fulla booze. Whiskey Dick was recorded in nearly one take...

GOT ALL THE BOSTON BITCHES MAD CUZ MY MAIN BITCH...
OK, yeah, so, Allston house shows are cool but nothing could possibly beat the infamous Slaughterhouse5 located in sleepy not creepy Dover, New Hampshire. As I rode the train north from Boston, I read a book and watched the landscape turn from boxcars and graffiti-covered brick to oak trees and rivers, and for the first time in a while, I felt really good about being in New Hampshire.

New Five Day Forecast EP
It’s been nearly two years since Which Is Missing, The Puzzle or The Piece? came out, and Five Day Forecast has taken a new approach to their storytelling. Ty Ueda dropped his bass and piano and taught himself to play the guitar. Drums are almost nonexistent, spare some clapping and cymbals for emphasis. His songs in Dear _______, take on a somber tone more fitting for the lyrics, and...
I just saw this band Quilty last night at Great Scott. I was actually just about to leave to get food when I saw a guy with a trombone hooking himself up to a bass amp with a pedal rig. I had to see what the hell that could possibly mean. As soon as first chord hit, I was totally entranced in a 90s grunge throwback flashback, in I assure you, the best way possible. WARNING: BAND DESCRIPTION...
