We reached out to Casey Polomaine, Executive Director of Albany Barn. As follows… RRX: Albany Barn had its origins in something called Rock2Rebuild, which harnessed the power of music to raise money for the 2004 Southeastern tsunami. That was a massive event that was soon forgotten, soon for the magnitude of it. How did that […]

We reached out to the band Black Belt Jones, who will be appearing at Rock and Oddities Con on October 28th and 29th. This is our conversation. RRX: You all have a great sound. I’m listening to something a little bluesy right now, “Jupiter Queen.” So I see your bio, and holy s**t, you have […]

We reached out to Peter Pallis of the band AnAkA, who will be playing at the upcoming Rock and Oddities Con. This is their story. RRX:  I’m listening to the song “Ominous Visions” on your site. I love the concept, the graphics. And in metal, the apocalypse is never far from being at hand. Ruin, […]

In this edition of Thanks for Asking, we interview Anna Mernieks of the band Beams. Interview by Liam Sweeny. RRX: Every comic book hero has an origin story. What is the origin story for the band? (points if you tell it like a comic book origin.) AM: In the sleepy suburb of Brampton, Ontario, local […]

Naomi Bindman. I first met Naomi Bindman at a small open mic in Troy. As soon as she told her story, I felt as if an ice pick had been driven through my heart. Naomi had tragically lost her daughter, Ellen, the week after she graduated from high school in a car crash. As a […]

RRX: You are Old North End. I’m guessing that it has to do with some area, maybe in Burlington. But I can imagine all I want. Better to get it from you. What does Old North End refer to? And was it an obvious choice for a name, or was it something that everybody mulled […]

With Rock and Oddities Con coming in the end of October, we thought we’d pre-game with the band Lock 9. So we had questions. RRX: So let’s get caught up, first. You had an EP released in July, titled, accordingly, “ReLEASE.” I’m listening to one of the tracks on it, “Nowhere.” It’s got a really […]

We ask the band Speedy Ortiz six timeless questions. Their reply was speedy. RRX: Every comic book hero has an origin story. What is the origin story for the band? (points if you tell it like a comic book origin.) Sadie: In the year 2003 I was papercut by a jagged button on a Tascam […]

From the depths of Pennsylvania (Harrisburg to be exact), comes a brutal sound that you’ll love to hate and hate to love, probably a little more the second than the first. We bring you an exclusive interview with the band, Suicide Puppets. RX: You’re from Harrisburg, PA and you tour nationally. And you have a […]
