Walter Bonedale Hanging Around the John Ryle House

Concert Review: John Ryle House in Haledon, NJ, 7/12/14

Jul 2014 14:44PM EDT

The last time I went to a show at the John Ryle House in Haledon, NJ, bayonets were discovered in the garage by a couple of people who had consumed an exorbitant amount of alcohol. Nobody died or was even (seriously) injured, but that's the sort of thing that would normally persuade me to never return. So why did I go back last night? Because Omegalith and Huge Pupils were playing.READ MORE

'Rising Star' ABC Recap and Review: Episode Two Features More Performers, Despite Their Mediocre-ness

Jun 2014 00:14AM EDT

Rising Star this week was a marked improvement from its debut on June 23, but it's still not quite the game-changing phenomenon ABC is teasing it as. It still just feels like another gimmicky program with largely a pool of mediocre acts.READ MORE

Hologram City, 6/14/14

Concert Review: Hologram City in Hackensack, NJ, 6/14/14

Jun 2014 12:24PM EDT

Continuing the long line of New Jersey basement venues with awesome names is Hologram City in Hackensack. Though most basement shows I've been to take place in the middle of quiet residential neighborhoods, complete with disgruntled neighbors who love calling the cops, Hologram City sits right at the corner of a busy intersection and even has its own (small) parking lot, which makes it a great location for a venue. The show I attended there last night was titled "Basement Maneuvers - An Electronic Evening," and as that name suggests, it was an evening of performances by electronic artists. Though I've been to plenty of shows featuring electronic artists, and have even played with some myself, I'd never been to an entirely electronic show before, so the atmosphere and flow of the evening was very new to me.READ MORE
