Anxious, MAGS, and oso oso last night at Rec Room in Buffalo.

    Amazon has gone full QVC.

    Los Campesinos! at the Velvet Underground in Toronto. They’ve been on my bands to see bucket list and it was worth the wait. πŸ”₯

    What a show! Run the Jewels and Rage finally happened and it was glorious.

    Bon Iver and Bonny Light Horseman were amazing last night. I’ve seen hundreds of bands and it was a top 5 performance.

    Retired the original vinyl storage unit with a larger 2x2 unit. Was kind of shocked how big the collection has grown in the last couple years. The overflow was in a few various locations, so this was the first time seeing it all in one spot!

    Award season! High school high honors for these three. πŸ₯°

    Saw Iceage and Wiki at the Rec Room tonight. Crazy awesome show.

    Watson was so tired after our hike today he didn’t even mind Chet sitting on his head. πŸ˜‚

    Shhhh! 🀫

    1994 - An Ode to Hardcore

    Welcome to issue #11 of One Last Wish – my regular series where I look back at records that changed my life. This issue: 1994. Thanks for reading! I spent a good deal of time considering all of my favorite records that came out in 1994.

    Great tournament for the Lady Stars! A record of 1-1-1 in the round robin to get them into the finals of the consolation bracket tomorrow. Zoey scored her first goal of season too.
