  • Police shut down Black Bear Bar show, so EULA will play extra long Thursday (maybe tracks off their new 7")

    Black Bear Bar only has 4 pics on Facebook. This is one of them

    As Ted Chase first told me, the Northside Festival showcase happening in the front room of what used to be Public Assembly (but is now called Black Bear Bar) was shut down by the police on Friday night, presumably due to noise. Yes, that's the same Friday the 13th full moon evening that Omar Souleyman postponed due to "travel issues" and The War on Drugs/Woods show postponed due to rain. We opened doors at Baby's All Right a bit late that night and Little Big League broke a string, but we were otherwise lucky. The BrooklynVegan showcase that night with Operators, mostly went off without a hitch.

  • Sneeze releasing 'Wilt' LP (stream it in full)

    by Andrew Sacher

    It's not much of a secret that Massachusetts is currently a breeding ground for some of the best new '90s-inspired loud rock bands, and Allston's Sneeze are no exception. Their sophomore album, Wilt, comes out on June 17 via Glory Kid, and can be pre-ordered now. Not unlike Roomrunner's snotty grunge revival, it's ripper after ripper of the kind of alternative rock that we never get to hear on the radio anymore. If you yearn for the days of Nirvana, early Weezer, The Smashing Pumpkins, and all that good stuff, Wilt is for you. Not to mention it was produced by go-to Mass. guy Justin Pizzoferrato, who's manned the boards for Dinosaur Jr, Sonic Youth, Speedy Ortiz, and plenty other distortion pedal lovers. A full stream of the LP premieres in this post and can be listened to below.
