MUSIC INTERVIEW: Life On The Road With…Tim Kasher
We caught up with singer/guitarist Tim Kasher (of Cursive and The Good Life) ahead of his forthcoming UK tour. He shares his stories and tips from a life on the road, including failing "chair tricks" and Robert Smith watching from side of stage. Favourite thing about touring: At risk of coming off as dull as so many of us touring musicians... food. There's a lot of down time when traveling from town to town, so finding that great food stop in between cities or revisiting that restaurant you've grown to love so much over the years can mean so much to a bunch of bored off their ass touring ...

ALBUM REVIEW: Sorority Noise – You’re Not As _____ As You Think
Photo Credit: Pat Nolan On a surface level, Sorority Noise's third album delivers much the same type of painfully honest emo-punk that we've come to expect from such a band. Just by glancing at the album title and giving the opening track No Halo a quick listen, you would perhaps assume that this record isn't be much of a departure from their former releases. If you thought this (and it's okay, because we might have too) then you're totally wrong. You're Not As _____ As You Think does have a consistent feel to it, in the way that any established band with a distinct ...
