ShingoSays: The CMJ Roundup: CMJ is no joke

I’m bleeding exhausted. Those of you who were in New York City this past weekend, there’s probably a 100% chance you were CMJing. I too willfully and eagerly ran my body into the ground during CMJ, the College Music Journal’s music marathon/festival/4 day shit-show of every band you’ve ever wanted to see, back to back, and in a row all over the city. To do CMJ efficiently it requires a detailed schedule, cooperation from your friends who don’t want to go to rock shows, and…

Shawn Brown Spills the Beans on Dag Nasty

To some, Shawn Brown is a legend of hardcore. A one-off. A voice who injected real anger and passion into a genre renowned for crybabies and tough-guy posers. As the original vocalist in Dag Nasty he helped Brian Baker exorcise his post-Minor Threat demons before getting unceremoniously booted out for his trouble.

As a music fanatic, however, it’s natural to jump to your favorite genre’s defense. In this particular showdown I stand behind…

ShingoSays: MIA show at Brooklyn Bowl - The perfect time to take a bathroom break.



My Afropunk kindren,

Welcome to my first bit of blogging as Afropunk’s latest nightlife correspondent! I’m your source and go-to for everything ridiculous, cool, and probably slightly dangerous. I go to shows; kinda my thing, so stick with me if you want to avoid wackness. There is too much awesome going on in this town to ever not be having a good time.
