Xperience

Well, it is that time again… time to present to you, loyal readers, the fruit of our month’s labors. And so without further hesitation, we give to you the April 2020 Xperience Digital Edition. Simply click the cover. It’s in PDF format, and it’s a little big, because we filled it with love.  

Music and Parenting At that time in my life, my life was once again filled with music. We continued to play at Saturday Market every weekend, sometimes both Saturday and Sunday. One day we were doing our usual thing when a TV crew came by. They were from Sapporo, Japan which is a sister city […]

The Duplex Planet was a ‘zine created by artist Davis Greenberger in Boston in 1979. In its thirty-year span, it had captured an oft overlooked experience – that of the elderly. Its quirky nature endeared in to many, and the characters created in the Duplex Planet carried over into other media, such as books, comics, […]

Maybe a few times in a generation do you find a band or musician that truly resonates and mirrors your own experience in their music and lyrics. For me, this became true in discovering the “East Coast Beasts”, The Bumpin Uglies. I first became familiar with Bumpin Uglies music by total chance, some might say […]

I remember the day well in 2004, when Troy Deputy Mayor Dan Crawley called me into his office and said, “Dude, let’s get something going up at Powers Park this summer.” Dan was one of the architects of the Brunswick Summer concerts, and wanted to bring something similar to his old stomping grounds in Lansingburgh.

The Bobby Lees are an uncompromising garage-rock/punk band from Woodstock, New York. In a recent socially distant interview, the band wrote in to describe their recording process, their new upcoming record, and some interesting encounters at shows.

Welcome back to the topic of the month, from a man facing reality, and yet I feel while you may not identify with the topic now, you will, sooner or later. And frankly, it sucks. This issue, we focus on two parts of my name, cranky and old. As I mentioned earlier, I have been […]

We join author Heather Bell, who’s book, Regret or Something More Animal, is out in stores now from CLASH Books. RRX: I’m a fiction writer by trade, which means I spend my time trying to put emotions, including pain, into a life. But I’ve recently had time to write about something painful in my life. […]

Who would have thought, the last normal day we had, would be on a Friday the 13th? That was the day our lives became uncertain. We had to change our way of life. Isolate ourselves from friends and loved ones; leave our jobs; miss proms and graduations. No more strolling around the malls, no more […]

Although we haven’t seen a new release of original music from our west coast pals, Big Sandy & His Fly-Rite Boys, it doesn’t mean they haven’t been busy. In a normal year, they spend a great deal of time on the road traversing the US, or heading to Europe on one of their several tours […]
