The War On Drugs by Mara Robinson

Live Rock Action: The War on Drugs @ Grog Shop Cleveland Hts.

  How, exactly, did Philadelphia band, The War on Drugs manage to sell out the Grog Shop on Saturday night? Many were curious, especially those who either had to scramble down their contact list to get in or were turned away at the door before show time. Sure, the abstract Americana of Adam Granduciel and hs mates has been highly rated by the influential website, Pitchfork, for a couple years now, and that helps. But a...READ MORE

Live Rock Action: The Men @ The Happy Dog Cleveland

  To judge by appearance, the Brooklyn five-piece band, The Men, aren't very distinctive men. If pressed, the man standing in the middle of the stage could have been an extra in the '90s movie Singles. He had the slight frame and stringy hair to fit in. But put them in a corner bar and put jerseys on them and they could be sports fans. Put them in button down shirts, and they could be your co-workers. It's only when they ...READ MORE

The Burger Records Caravan of Stars Came to Cleveland and All I Got Was 30 Minutes of Gap Dream and a Hangover and That’s Alright

Hours before taking the stage, Cleveland ex-pat Gabe Fulvimar of Gap Dream was bouncing off the walls of the Happy Dog. There were high fives and hugs, and he was always the first one to hop up and down to the four opening bands during Burger Records' Burgerama Caravan of Stars stop in Cleveland. For Fulvimar, a veteran musician who had spent over a decade in the Cleveland and Akron music scenes, whose biggest claim to fame before...READ MORE
