Torche + Nothing + Wrong @ Bar Le "RITZ" P.D.B.

I've seen Torche twice before. The first time opening for Boris in 2008 (touring for Meanderthal), and the second time opening for Corrosion of Conformity (touring for Harmonicraft). So when I heard that they were finally headlining a local show, I was beyond excited.

The Lazarus Effect barely worth $5 DVD bin

When Jesus brought Lazarus back to life, everyone called it a miracle. Leave it to the cool, hip, nerdy medical researchers (Mark Duplass and Olivia Wilde) to start playing god and all hell breaks loose, including the fact that they should not be playing god according to the chair board.  Science and religion are the two common motifs used in horror films, so why should The Lazarus Effect not use them to their advantage. This supernatural horror film directed by David Gelb (Jiro Dreams of Sushi) and produced from the team behind The Purge and Paranormal Activities.

Feel so good inside myself Don't want to move
Feel so good inside myself Don't need to move
As I grow up I'm growing down. And when I'm lost,
I know I will be found.

HIP HOP WEEK MTL - Sugarface Nene's Top 5 Picks


Off the mic and on the record, I want to congratulate everyone involved in organizing this much needed in-depth exploration between "hip hop culture, feminism, gender, race, class, and activism", spanning over the week of March 15th to 21st, 2015 in the beautiful city of Montreal. From those who eat, sleep, and breathe hip hop, to those who know nothing about it, this week is for you! Through panels with special guest speakers, workshops for your hands and brain, and concert showcases to link everyone together, you will be instantly immersed in this thriving culture and community. 

Interview: The Dodos

The Dodos, an American indie-rock duo composed of Meric Long and Logan Kroeber, played at La Sala Rossa on March 2nd, 2015. They did not have any additional touring members, and it made all the difference. The duo was incredibly energetic, and performed well together, capturing the full attention of the crowd. They opened with "Goodbyes and Endings" off their newly released album, Individ. Although the vocals were buried under disappointing sound quality, the packed audience responded well to their performance, slowly singing and dancing along.
