It’s that time of year, when everybody cracks out their ‘Best Of’ lists. And in this particular case, we’re choosing to follow the crowd… Sort of. We’ve polled our staff, and have come up with a few good lists. Enjoy. Rob Smittix – Top Bizarre List of 2020 2020 has been a year we’ll always […]

Rock and roll, music in general, is a story about the big. Big sounds. Big personalities, big egos, big hair, you name it, but it’s got to be big. And we try to show you how big the Capital Region really is, in its diverse sound and in the people who’ve gone to do things […]

When I was jamming out, my sound stage wishes and wah pedal dreams in tow, I’d heard of Acoustic Trauma. I’d never seen them, but I’d heard a bootleg tape, so I knew what they were laying down. That was in the late 90s, and Acoustic Trauma has been laying it long since I laid […]
