We Just Wanna Have Some Fun, Down At The Rock And Roll Club
Not sure if January 15th being both the arcane feast of Saint Paul the First Hermit and the day that Prince Palu gave up his futile search for some sort of medically induced hibernation have anything to do with each other, but it sure is cold outside. However, we are sure that, unlike Paul of Thebes, Prince Palu does not have a raven that brings bread to his cave everyday, so he went out and bought some thermal underwear and resigned himself to the fact that these are our days until the first or second week of May. Now resign yourself too and here are some live music options for you this week.
The debut album by Philly rockers Hound allows each of us to scratch our rock itch, to indulge in an album that is relentless rock 'n' roll. Out Of Time consists of ten tracks, six of which are under three minutes in length. At less than twenty-eight minutes, this album doesn't allow for any superfluous bells or whistles, there's rockin' to be done.

I hate to say it, but I am an Instagram addict. I see friends and they tell me, “Oh I loved your photos on Instagram, you really post a lot!” A back-handed compliment, praised tinged with judgment. I don’t really know anyone in my personal life who uses the medium so ardently, so consistently, so obsessively, and to what end?
