I'm Lindsay, 24 From New Hampshire. I have a BA in European History and a minor in writing for some reason. As you can see I like things. I go to a lot of shows and conventions. I play the drums and like cats, often at the same time and I can't spell.

So I was thinking that I might start a side blog for music reviews. Albums, shows, that kind of thing. 

I’ve been thinking lately that I want to write for some sort of magazine, but I need to hone my skills. I’ve been a little out of practice that past year.

So I need my lovely followers to suggest to me some albums to listen to and review. The genre doesn’t matter, but I’d prefer it to be punk, ska, metal, metalcore, alternative, indie, or something like that since that’s what I am most passionate about.  

I’ll let you know what the URL is when I come up with a cleaver name. 

Soo suggest an album please?

So Psychostick is coming out with a new album and have an indiegogo page to fund it.

If you’ve never heard of them they’re a pretty great humor core band. I saw them a few years ago in NH, and they put on a great live show. I met the band after and they were super nice.

I’m gonna throw some money at them when I get paid, and you should too. You can find the page here

Tonight is the night for discovering female fronted symphonic metal bands. 

I dig it.

Jinjer “Exposed as A Liar”

Holy shit, that girl can scream

Also parts of the instrumentals really remind me of Between The Buried and Me. 

Well Killswitch Engage’s new album is awesome.

Jesus, I keep finding Slipknot shirts. How many of those did I even own More than necessary apparently. I guess that’s what happens. They were my favorite band in my teenage years.

I remember how unhappy my mother was when she found out I listened to them. Not as unhappy when she found out I listened to Godsmack when I was like 13. 

They started paying for professional drum lessons when I was in 6th grade and I remember how pleased. my teacher was when I started bringing in rock and metal to learn. I literally went from boy bands to metal. There was a Maroon 5 and All American rejects transition then straight to Korn and Godsmack. I snuck the CD’s in since I knew I wasn’t supposed to be listening to them. 

I was this tiny little girl listening to some pretty heavy stuff. My drum teacher always found it amusing.
