      We Saw This: Church Whip

      We Saw This: Hirsute Pursuit

      Ass was literally everywhere the other night when Hirsute Pursuit played their first announced show. If that wasn't enough, Boyd Rice flew in as support. The icing on the cake was Cult of Youth as an opener. Basically from where I'm sitting, last night wa…

      We Saw This: Nu Sensae

      We Saw This: Believer/Law
