September 25, 2016 on “Nirvana Baby” Really Wants To Show You His Penis
Pumped for Trap Them, all 3 tracks released so far are like the epitome of what I want from metal and hardcore: juggernaut drums, chainsaw riffs, and vocals that make me feel like I'm being assaulted. Also, just a heads up that Kool A.D. has released his third 100-track mixtape in under 12 months and it bangs.

September 20, 2016 on Album Of The Week: How To Dress Well Care
I hate to be a punk cliche and throw the "poser" accusation around, but I've been to Riot Fest twice now and it's obvious that some of the "punks" in attendance bought their punk costumes the day before. Honestly it doesn't even make me mad that someone who is not actually a Vandals fan is rocking a Vandals logo, as much as it makes me sad and confused that some people are rich enough to spend on money on clothing that they don't understand and will probably never wear again.

She's saying that the lime-throwers are not necessarily racist (we have no way of knowing) themselves, but there is a racial undercurrent when white people tell POC how to behave, and it contributes to POC feeling excluded from white-dominated spaces. There's a lot more nuance to race relations than filing things under "definitely racist, 100% pure evil" or "not racist, nothing to see here, move along"

September 12, 2016 on Solange Shares Essay About “Being A Minority In Predominantly White Spaces” After Harassment At Kraftwerk Concert
I think what she is saying is, these particular women and this particular incident were not necessarily racist in and of themselves, but they contribute to a feeling of "not welcome" among POC in cultural spaces that are predominately white.

September 12, 2016 on Solange Shares Essay About “Being A Minority In Predominantly White Spaces” After Harassment At Kraftwerk Concert
The word "racism" only appears once in her tweets, and it's not in direct reference to the incident in question. The only people "throwing the word around" are people in the comments. She specifically says that she doesn't think these women were necessarily racist, multiple times.

September 12, 2016 on Solange Shares Essay About “Being A Minority In Predominantly White Spaces” After Harassment At Kraftwerk Concert
One thing Solange definitely got right: that people would put words in her mouth and claim that she called these women racist, when she did no such thing. The word "racist" does not appear once in her account of the incident. Seems like a lot of people are still stuck in the "racist/ not racist" binary and unwilling to consider some nuance.

September 12, 2016 on Solange Shares Essay About “Being A Minority In Predominantly White Spaces” After Harassment At Kraftwerk Concert
"You realize that you never called these women racists, but people will continuously put those words in your mouth. What you did indeed say is, “This is why many black people are uncomfortable being in predominately white spaces,” and you still stand true to that." -straight from Solange's mouth, writing in second person for some reason.

Lonesome Crowded West is my favorite MM album as well but come on, "Paper Thin Walls", "Lives", and "Life Like Weeds" are among MM's best songs. Also, "One thing I know about human beings is this: THEY AIN'T MADE OF NOTHING BUT WATER AND SHIT! ALRIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIGHT!!!!!" is one the best ways to close out an album, ever.

Riot Fest Denver Recap! CONS Food and drink options: Colorado is known for craft beer, but the only beer options are Dos Equis and Tecate? Come on! You couldn't even get New Belgium or Odell to make an appearance? And the food options consisted mostly of a paltry selection of carnival food. Chicago last year was wayyy better in this regard. Sound issues: Several sets were plagued with bad sound and technical difficulties, including Wolf Parade and Me First and the Gimme Gimmes. Lewis Del Mar almost left the stage in frustration when their gear kept cutting out. White Lung: I absolutely love this band, and Paradise is an AOTY contender. They were great for the most part, and Mish is a commanding frontwoman, but on several songs the drummer got sloppy and off-beat, which is unforgivable for a hardcore band. Wolf Parade: The band played a great set, sound issues aside, but giving WP an afternoon slot at a punk festival does them a disservice. A Wolf Parade show should be a cathartic, drunken shout-along, not a small crowd of bored stragglers and a couple die-hards. Yo La Tengo: I only caught the tail end of YLT, but they closed with a 10-minute three-note jam that went nowhere and lasted foreverrr. YLT are capable of such beautiful music, why do this jam band shit? 2 Chainz: He was 30 minutes late to a 45-minute set, at which point I was already gone. Rocky mountain oysters: Not actually oysters! PROS Indoor space: The indoor rodeo stage provided a welcome respite from the heat, a place to sit down, and actual bathrooms (so clutch at a festival). Plus it just looked cool! People watching: Riot Fest is the best place to see a parade of punk fashion that went out of style in 1978. Lots of ridiculous mohawks and obscure-band-shirt one-upmanship. I saw a girl rocking a battle vest which I'm sure meant to say "Vegan Anarchist", but instead she wrote "VEGAN ARCHIST". Proofread your homemade clothes, people! Diarrhea Planet: Giving DP an early afternoon slot is a war crime. Their famous mosh pit was sadly unrealized with such a shitty slot, but they seemed to be having a blast regardless. One of my favorite little moments of the festival was when one of their guitarists was mid guitar solo, gave a little bored expression, then tossed the solo over to one of the other 4 guitarists, who picked it up without missing a beat. Fucked Up: Another one of my favorite little moments was when Damian, mid song, gathered armfuls of water bottles and started tossing them into the crowd. He realized he couldn't hold the mic and sing with an armful of bottles, so he just put the mic fully in his mouth and started screaming while continuing to distribute water. Thursday: For a legacy screamo act that hasn't been active in a while, they sounded great, had lots of energy, and put on a fantastic show. The Hold Steady: I'm not a huge Hold Steady fan, but I am very familiar with Boys and Girls in America. I got really into that record when I first moved to NYC, so I have a bit of a special bond with it. Hearing it performed live was an extraordinary experience. I was not expecting Craig Finn to have so much stage presence, but he was probably the most charming frontman I saw at the whole festival. His conversational lyrical style works surprisingly well for a fest, it really was like he was telling a funny story to a group of his friends, except his friends have all heard the story before and are shouting it back at him. Sleater Kinney: Full of energy and presence, tighter than a nun's butt, and a hallucinogen-worthy rippling-flag backdrop to boot! Underoath: For a band I don't care about and a musical style I actively dislike, these guys put on a surprisingly good show. It didn't quite turn me into a convert, but I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed myself. Gogol Bordello: I've been meaning to see these guys forever. A festival setting is maybe not ideal: they're far more suited for a packed, sweaty club of drunken revelers. But they still pulled out all the stops, putting on the rowdiest, most bonkers-crazy show of the festival. The goddamn Misfits: Yes, the 61 year-old Danzig sounded absolutely exhausted every time he tried to do stage banter. Yes, the animated backdrop looked like it was designed by an intern with a folder of Misfits clip art. But who cares! It's the original fucking Misfits, and they still sounded great, they still sounded pissed off, they still sounded vital as they bashed their way through an absolutely stacked setlist for an adoring crowd. Denver: Denver rules. A+ city you guys got there.

I admit I'm not as much of a scene hound as I was in my early 20s, but in my experience, music clubs in NYC still tend to be in Bushwick (Silent Barn, Shea Stadium, Market Hotel, Alphaville, Sunnyvale, Palisades), Williamsburg (Knitting Factory, Baby's All Right, Union Pool, Brooklyn Bowl) or the LES (Mercury Lounge, Cake Shop, Pianos).
