How to Destroy Angels-Trent Reznor’s New Jawn

YouTube Preview Image

In case you just got the internet yesterday and don’t read that other tastemaking music website, How to Destroy Angels is Cleveland homeboy’s post-NIN project with his wife Mariqueen Maandig, formerly of West Indian Girl radness. A six song, self-titled EP is expected sometime this summer. The first track “A Drowning” makes me think of the best NIN record ever “The Fragile.”

Weakened Wrap-up #21: Bloggers gonna Blog

Pictured: Nick Tolford and Company@GenWex presents: Off the Grid

Perhaps I’ve said it before (no way I’m trudging through those old posts) and If I haven’t, I’m saying it now. I’m a bringer togetherer, make it happennerer and a motherfucking idea factory. Basically what I’m saying is let’s all be cool, hang out and high five-you know? Life’s too short to not be a cool motherfucker!

In this blogisode, I pretty much ran myself ragged but I had a fuuuucking blast. Mouth of the Architect slayed, I somehow found time to check out a couple CD101 day Big Room performances, GenWex presents put on a killer benefit called Off the Grid with a bunch of awesome food and good looking people, Nick Tolford and Company made the crowd wet (myself included), The Hood Internet rocked the joint hard, I managed to catch a couple Brainbow songs at Carabar, did shots with Ron and jammed to some Team Tim Trivia (y’all gotta get on this).

Saturday in Columbus: Ben Hamilton Benefit/Lou Poster’s (Grafton) B-day

From the horses mouth

In order to help out our friend Ben Hamilton we are making this saturday’s show a benefit. The show at Summit is also a birthday party for the salty old helmsman of the bar (yrs truly) with “performances” by some Ohio favorites… Guinea Worms, Unholy Two, We March, and Grafton. Strongest Man Alive, Righteous Buck and the Skull Scorchers, and Washington Beach Bums will be at Bobo. 5 bucks for both shows, pay at either door. the set times will be staggered out so you can stagger between them.

Also, just so you know, the kitchen at Cafe Bourbon Street is back in action, with tacos (yep, Dave was a ninja), hot dogs, empanandas, hamburgers, pepperoni rolls, and a whole lot more to keep you fueled up for beer fueling. Menu and schedule of Dollar specials to follow.

ps i hate when people call it CBS. anyone else?
