Rain to the Sound of Panic

We don’t know what the weather has been like where you are, but where we are in NJ and MA (USA), we have had crazy heavy storms day after day.  They don’t last long, but they have been wreaking havoc in certain areas.  We mention THIS early on in the show, so see it for yourself.  Oh, and bonus kudos to anybody that gets the show title without googling it.

Come Origin(al)

That title is solely for Nick’s amusement. We don’t have anything truly original here (and we don’t need to get into the semi-philisophical argument that “nothing is original”). What we do have, though, are a couple of solid albums and one that has a few songs that don’t really help in the fight against Chad Kroeger.

Upstarts and Old Farts

Ok, “old farts” isn’t really fair, but it sounds good in the title.  The point is half the reviews this week come from more established acts, while the other half (and our showcase) are still wet behind the ears.  Who does it better?  Well, that’s what you’re here to find out, right?  So get listening and let us know what you think!
