In a crowd of annoyingly loud bars on that block this is a super classy and casual place for people who actually live in the neighborhood to go get a drink. I love it.

commented on Do Musicians Really Hate Being Categorized?
I have no objection to music categorization, it's a way of expressing a general "band vibe" to an audience that doesn't necessarily have any frame of reference, but a lot of times I find it exceedingly lazy on the part of the reviewer. It's a way to listen to 30 seconds of a song, slap on an arbitrary name, and send in your fluff piece. No band is separate their influences, of course, but there are very many other interesting things to consider, which I find are often overlooked.
What is the live show like? Where does the album art come from? What is the band's perspective on the changing music industry? What are the concepts addressed in the songs? What role does the band play in the music community? What are they trying to do?
Yes I know that using washed out guitar and vocal effects makes it sound shoegaze, but what is the intent behind their ironic album title and how might that change our perspective on their sound?

commented on The Crocodile to be (More) All-Ages
Hey All, we're going to post pics to make the set up more clear, but it's not only the balcony that's All Ages now, but 25% of the main floor as well. So there is still drinking on most of the floor, with a section of the floor up front on the stage being dry. There's also the option to switch that set up if more All Ages tickets get sold than 25% of the Cap. It's going to be show by show basis. Of course we'll work out kinks as they happen, but we've done some runs through with the new All Ages set up several times now and had a great response from patrons. Come check it out and we'd love to hear feedback about it, it's just going to keep getting better.
