A Quick Introduction Seems To Be In Order

Apparently you have been sucked in by the title of this post. You may have come here hoping to obtain great knowledge about the world around us or at the very least some insight about it from my perspective. I’m sorry to disappoint you but hopefully you will enjoy this minute of action packed Swiss cinema!

Thanks to All Hail The Black Market for turning me on to this video!

Marquis Theater? Fall of Troy? EOTC?

Envy On The Coast

Envy On The Coast

Wow! I thought I was still pretty with it when it came to new bands. I just needed to hang with a 16 year old for a while to clue myself in.
There are a ton of bands and music out there that have totally abandoned the old traditional radio, magazine, record store model of the past. It seems like bands like Fall of Troy, Envy On The Coast (EOTC) and others of their ilk get their word out by all the social networking sites as well as that plain old fashioned concept of touring and getting out to meet the fans.
What really struck me as a really enjoyable aspect of these bands is that they all seem to really enjoy playing and you get the feeling that they would put on the same type of show if they were playing for 5 people or a thousand. A nice departure from those jaded big time bands that charge 100 bucks to see them play.
In Denver, the Marquis Theater (promoted by Soda Jerk Presents) seems to cater to this crowd. Under 16? No problem, want to mosh or stage dive? Please feel free to do so. At the risk of dating myself, not since the early days of punk have I seen a place that caters itself to the younger crowd like they do. Maybe there is some life left in rock music after all.
