This photo of Amyl And The Sniffers was snapped on night one of the two sold-out shows at The Teragram Ballroom in Los Angeles a few weeks ago. Slaughterhouse and C.O.F.F.I.N opened the show.
Going to see the Mountain Goats is like a religious experience for me. They’re a band I hold close to my heart whose live show brings me comfort and excitement.

Rev. Fred Lane is a genre unto himself. He’s a singer few have ever heard of who inspires deep devotion among the converted. Admittedly, that’s a familiar template, but no one’s ever bent that template quite like Lane. With Icepick to the Moon, director Paul “Skizz” Czykz tells the many-layered story of Fred Lane and […]

I questioned (silently) how worthwhile this was, but the dividends of cultural literacy […]
When I saw there was a person who endeavored to write about punk drumming, I’ll admit that (as a punk drummer myself) I was equal parts intrigued and skeptical. I wondered how it would hold my attention on a seemingly simple subject. Never have I been so pleased to be proven wrong. Not only did […]

Jim Saah grew up in the DC area and began photographing punk bands early in the 1980s. Like many of you, I’ve seen various photos taken by him over the years, particularly of seminal DC legends like Minor Threat, though I may not have known at the time they were taken by him. His pictures […]
I think I first became aware of Ms. Braun's photos in Flipside. I probably did see her work in Maximum Rocknroll as well, but if you were looking to get blown away visually, then Flipside was your ticket because they ran photos larger than MRR, and sometimes even as a two-page spread.

Ben Snakepit has been drawing three-panel comics about his day for over twenty years. And despite how mundane or boring his day was, his zines (later turned books) were hard to put down. It’s not that they’re drawn great (Ben is actually a very good illustrator despite what his comics look like or what he […]
