Interview – So Dreadfully Wrong, Yet So Dreadfully Right: The Dread Crew of Oddwood

A little while ago, I posted an article about my pirate pals in the Heavy Mahogany band The Dread Crew of Oddwood based out of San Diego.  They played Tempe's Buccaneer Brewfest last year with local epic metal band Adavant.  They were very well received by my friends and me, so much so that I took a trip to see them play the California Pleasure Faire this past May.  During that time, I was able

Eh is for Awesome: The Best in Canadian Entertainment

Okay, so shame on the Canadian girl for being a day late on this.  Due to the... *ahem*... intense celebrating of my country's founding day yesterday, I sort of forgot about my idea on writing this article.  As a proud Canadian, I wanted to share some of the reasons my pride exists so immensely.  So I decided to list Canada's best in entertainment.  And you can absolutely forget about seeing Justin Bieber, Avril Lavigne, and

Last summer, I posted a review of an event held here in Phoenix AZ – the 1st annual Buccaneer Brewfest.  On the bill were my favorite local band and best friends of all time, Adavant.  However I’m not going to be doing another write up of

Concert Review: Gojira, Devin Townsend, The Atlas Moth – 01/28/2013

On Monday night the 28th of January, I entered the Marquee Theatre after having walked from the parking lot across the street.  I had a feeling this concert would be a big one, but I didn’t think I’d have to use the $7 lot.  After taking my usual arms-crossed stance at the back of the venue, I was greeted by a slow and sludgy, atmospheric sound by a newer band out of Chicago called The
