Interview with James Muschler of MOON HOOCH; Touring with LOTUS and They Might Be Giants! @moonhooch
The NYC subway system… It’s more than just turnstiles, rats, and fear of homicide. Though the packed cars, shrill stops, and occasional stench of bodily fluids/gas certainly don’t scream “inviting atmosphere,” one can stumble across a fair share of talent vying for the commuter dollar. In my 3 years as an NYC resident, no act made me turn my head, or shake my butt, more than Moon Hooch.
Interview with Joe Lacy from Boston’s THE WEEDS; Releasing super limited cassette via No Sleep Records on 2/26.
Boston, Massachusetts 4-piece The Weeds are definitely doing something right with their free time… How about you? Boasting an impressive lineup featuring former members of Transit, Late Night Wars, Defeo, and Sleepsick, The Weeds play an emotive brand of pop-punk/indie rock that’ll undoubtedly catch the eyes and ears of scenes nationwide… Tight, poppy jams flooded with vocal harmony and rhythmic changeups to get the crowd bouncing and lurching… I’m diggin’ it. And damn… Justine is cute!
Well, it appears that the Greg Ginn version of Black Flag will be releasing a new album and doing a US tour in the near future.
We can’t speak on any solidified dates yet, but this is certainly turning out to be one epic punk-rock drama. Details will be posted as they come.
Thanks to Brooklyn Vegan for the scoop!
