conducting from the grave

While most of you may not notice the change, the inevitable has happened…the one and only Rock(jock) has officially retired from The Sideshow.  While he most likely rear his ugly head every once and a while, he will be intentionally missing from future episodes.  So, that means you guys are stuck with Nick and Brian steering the ship, trying to keep course.  Correcting course from the end of last week’s show, we now have our Internet connections in working order, and we pick up where we left off.  We also bring you three additional album reviews…and music for all of them!  AND we have two more live reviews.  AAAND…no, wait..that’s it.

Lots of good music this week, especially if you tend to side with Brian’s reviews.  Nick likes the albums this week as well, but not quite as much. And Kyle? Well, we will probably never know since…you guessed it…he’s touring the country with an actual sideshow as the bearded lady.  Anyway, the First Impressions this week were a little more varied in quality than the albums.  If you want to judge for yourself, head to our Google + page and look ’em up.

Oh, and anybody (besides Nick) that can tell me what song (I’ll also accept band) the episode title is referencing gets bonus points.  It may lose something without the inflections, but some of you may be keen enough to get it.
