Our very own @jaredsusername has started a gear blog. He's got some great interviews and gear breakdowns with guys from Aqueos, Dopapod, Mungion, and more. Specifically, he sat down with Jordan to get us the low down on the bass man's rig. Check it out here:

This, of course, is a natural segue from the work Jared did a few months back:

I will start this review by saying that I have not had this much fun introducing people to a band since I was begging my Dead Head friends to join me for Phish shows back in the early 90’s. The sheer joy I get from watching someone experience this band live for the first time is unparalleled.

I spent the day travelling across the great Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and met two of my friends in the ‘Burgh. Neither of these long time musical adventuring cohorts had ever s...

I'll try not to, but according to co-workers, I tend to ramble when I email so..

Catullus was originally slated as local support for Spafford's show tonight. Since it didn't work out we wanted to give you Nerds a chance to see what they're all about. They're touring the east coast, they've written a rock opera based on Homer's Odyssey, and their debut album is up on Spotify.

Band Bio:
"Emerging from the suburbs of Philadelphia, Catullus is building a reputation up and down the East coast for their deep grooving and sweat inducing sets. The ecstatic and energetic music that exudes from the four talented musicians effortlessly oscillates between progressive rock, and electronic untz. Steeped in the improvisational tradition, each set carries with it the potential...
