City Slang: Leopold & His Fiction at the New Way

Before tonight, I had only visited the New Way in Ferndale since the change of ownership for the Blowout last year. It’s always been a great little place, split as it is into a bar/sporty TV area and a live music venue. Just a half-wall separates the two areas, but it’s enough to retain...

City Slang: Duendesday has the Loving Touch

First of all, I’m really sorry that I missed Unlimited Head. Judging by the EP, the erstwhile members of Warhorses make a lot of great stoner noise, and they have a weirdly cool name.
