"..."Been in the dark/ All of my life/ Waiting for the Wake/ Of the Red Witch .../ Waiting for the Wake/ Of the Red Witch/ Waiting for the Wake/ Of the Red Witch" – I listen to this Terry Allen song over and over, surprised at all it evokes, and wondering why, at its end, he needs to repeat that phrase thrice...."
"...Produced in 1953, it's the lowest of low-budget science fiction horror films and as dumb as they come. I saw it over a decade later when it was one of those films that got lodged into New York City's independent-station programming along with films like Wake of the Red Witch, Treasure Island, and The Boy With Green Hair..."

"...11:50pm, Red 7 Patio; Thu., Red 7 Patio, 9pm No band can fill the gap left in the emo heart when Thursday faded, but Burbank's post-hardcore, Geoff Rickly-approved Touché Amoré comes pretty close. Third album Is Survived By could be their Spiderland, with producer Brad Wood giving new clarity to Jeremy Bolm's confessional tone poem lyrics, and a math-rock switchback vibe to their two-guitar tornado. Richard Whittaker Machinedrum..."

"...9pm, Red Eyed Fly Austin loves chaos, and local sevenpiece When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth has it in spades. With two drummers, two guitars, two singers, and a bass, Dinos ripped through the tasty Snacks (Emperor Jones) last year, but they switch from metal to grunge live..."

How did we manage to rise up every morning, put on our clothes, and start the day before this label devoted to all things jangly gave us Cardinal, Number One Cup, and Witch Hazel? It's best not to ponder such questions for very long; better to simply add to that gilded roster the Boston quartet Syrup USA.
