Todd’s latest music endeavor is a duo called Calendar Year, formed with his friend Rob—and they’ve just released their first album, Jaded, Apathetic, with No Hope for the Future! It’s a sort of indie-rock blend that has punk and emo influences and describes their attempts to “determine their place in the world.” Todd’s on drums and backup singing/shouting; Rob’s on guitar and vocals. Please check it out. The album is free (donation-based) to download from Bandcamp and streaming on Spotify, or you can just listen below:
Some pretty big life developments are in the works right now that I truly hope to get the chance to share with you soon. For now, because I don’t have a ton of time but don’t want to forget about posting on this blog, I thought I would do a short, fun photo post to give you a glimpse into my weekend. And I’m already looking forward to the upcoming weekend because I’m going apple picking! Hopefully that will lead to some great recipes I can share.
Since 2009, Staten Island band Friday’s Nightmare has dabbled in the local music scene, playing small-scale shows and focusing on their most popular songs. But recently they stepped up their efforts, releasing a seven-song EP in 2013 and a double A-side single, Animals, in 2014 on Shoreline Records. Their DIY ethos has spurred the creation of super cute t-shirts and an upcoming music video to help build their fan base, get booked at bigger venues, and have some fun.
I decided to do another #TBT post this week, taking you back to the day I first met my boyfriend at a Gogol Bordello concert at the Williamsburg waterfront in Brooklyn.
