hey folks! just letting you all know my buddy over at furniture city hardcore has started a blog in support of lots of michigan music and arts. go check it out at furniturecityhardcore.wordpress.com!
oh grand rapids hardcore. this band, damages, has been under my radar for too long…apparently they’ve been around since 2007 but i just learned about them recently! i ran across them on last.fm and was looking at their pictures there and on their myspace page and realized i had seen them play at the last la dispute show i had been to (which was way too long ago). anyway they have a link to get their ep for free on their myspace page so i downloaded and love it. solid and heavy hardcore from right here in grand rapids, mi! check them out!
ryan gosling’s dead man’s bones debut, self-titled album is surprisingly good! i’ve listened to it a couple times finally and am really into it! check this video out and go here to visit dead man’s bones’ official website!
my good friends chugger are now officially on last.fm (best social network ever…but some people are really mean about what others listen to…take it easy people!) with some free downloads! check it out here. and of course, if you are in the grand rapids area come check out chugger on stage. go to the chugger myspace page for show listings.
all of the sudden..

i’m sorry it took so long. anger is an amazing album, lyrically and musically, so please do listen. i will of course need to see these guys live..

…so i’m gonna link to it (its about one of those other bands i keep talking about): native are so “floor core”. the sweet black and white picture is from the daac show the other night…or at least i’m pretty sure it is. haha. anyways it was a sweet show…and i unfortunately missed the intersection show. but what? native, russian circles, and young widows in kalamazoo in december?
