Shakusky (MA) Meatlocker Set 04/21/16

In the several times I’ve seen them live. The Massachusetts band Shakusky have managed to become one of my current favorites. Impassioned vocals sung over intricate rythms and leads. A potent mix that reads like emotional hardcore meets the  eccentricities of math rock. I often catch myself saying “If I started a record label. Shakusky would be one of the two first bands I’d reach out to. Thursday nights set was by far, the best one yet. JD

Mr. Pink (NJ) Meatlocker Set o4/21/16

Last night I had the pleasure of experiencing New Jersey’s Mr. Pink. A band named after what is arguably one of the best characters in one of the most iconic films (Reservoir  Dogs) in movie history. Any band or person with an apprecition for actor Steve Buscemi has to be pretty awesome. Opinion? Maybe. Fact? Most definitely. JD
