Darkness, Violence, and Death

Sounds pretty grim, right? It si, but it’s not as hopeless as you may be imagining.  While this may not be the most “diverse” line-up we have had, these albums interestingly juxtapose and compliment each other simultaneously…at least when you are trying to listen to all three during the week. Confused? Intrigued?  Then get listening…

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.
