    Posted on by Anthony Chang in Staff Blog

    Another year’s gone, and it’s another year I’m ready to move on from. Let’s look at some of what came out. Earlier in 2015 we put up listicles of five favorite records from the first six months of the year, and it’s amazing how many of them carry over to this top ten.

    I think I inadvertently went to my last show of 2015 and didn’t even realize it! The good news is.. it was Modern Baseball, and I was pretty sure I couldn’t make it until about an hour before doors. All good. It all worked out good. (Well*)


  • News : New Found Glory, Yellowcard, and Tigers Jaw At The Showbox 11/13

    Posted on by Anthony Chang in News

    Last week Kelly and I did the math: up until that night, we hadn’t so much as seen each other since the Mountain View CA date of Warped Tour in late June. Crazy, but it just made meeting up again at a show from my all-time favorite band, Yellowcard, that much more awesome.

    Kyle and I have been at Neumos quite a bit lately, and the latest was for Torrance punk powerhouse Joyce Manor. With Girlpool and Dogbreth supporting, Neumos had a packed house of fans new and old alike.

    Kyle and I hit up Neumos quite a few times this month, and one of them was for the truly unforgettable force that is Deafheaven. Fresh on their new release New Bermuda and still celebrating the success of Sunbather, this incredible California band is every bit as intense onstage as they are off.

  • Gallery : The Technicolors, Turnover, Seahaven, And Lydia At The Croc 10/20

    Posted on by Anthony Chang in Gallery

    Last week at The Croc, Kyle, Joe, and I hit up a late night Lydia headliner, with Seahaven, Turnover, and The Technicolors as the vastly talented supporting acts. It had been a good long while since I’d covered a show, so it was exciting to be back in the grind with such good RCA bros.


  • Interview : Coheed And Cambria

    Posted on by Anthony Chang in Interview

    If you’ve enjoyed rock for any amount of time, chances are you’ve heard of Coheed And Cambria. Undeniable veterans, this New York-based quartet has just released their eighth studio record, The Color Before The Sun, and will hit Seattle tonight with the tour to support the release! I had a chance to work with guitarist Travis Stever for this interview… which was fantastic. Read on:
