Song of the Week: Xibalba – Laid to Rest





Xibalba was a band that I was only familiar with in name for awhile, one of the many hardcore bands that Southern Lord Records has started to sign. I was prompted to give them a listen this week due to the release of their new album, Hasta La Muerte (its awesomely old-school death metalish sort of album cover was one of the main things that drove me to listen to it).

Song of the Week: The Menzingers – Good Things


When I heard that the Bouncing Souls were coming through Pittsburgh on their current tour cycle supporting their new album, Comet, I knew that I had to make an effort to go see them. The Bouncing Souls were the first band that I ever saw in concert, it was right after my first year of college, and was in Baltimore at the Ottobar. And while I have not listened to the Bouncing Souls much in the last few years, I figured it would be nice to relive old times.
