The Distillers announce Texas reunion show

The Distillers recently revealed they would be reuniting after more than a decade apart at Shaky Knees Festival in Atlanta, Georgia on May 4th-6th.

They have now announced an earlier reunion show, taking place on April 29th in El Paso, Texas.

We’ll keep you posted as more details on The Distillers’ plans for 2018 are revealed.



Stacey Dee (Bad Cop/Bad Cop) is in the hospital and could use our help!

Well this is a bummer or rather sizable proportions.

The lovely and talented Stacey Dee, better known as one of the guitar-wielding co-frontwomen in Bad Cop/Bad Cop was just about to head out on the road for her first slew of solo acoustic dates alongside Off With Their Heads and One Week Records recording artist Seth Anderson for a jaunt that kicks off tomorrow (January 12th) in Asbury Park. If you follow Dee on social media, you’ll know that she’s been under the weather lately but had pledged to plow through in typical bad ass fashion and hit the road anyway. Unfortunately, according to a post from OWTH’s Ryan Young, Dee was suffering from an abscess of some sort that turned into sepsis and she’s now stuck in a hospital bed. Needless to say, she won’t be on the tour, and as such she’ll be without a source of income for the foreseeable future.

Being the awesome dude that is, Ryan has put all of Stacey’s tour shirts up on his Anxious and Angry webstore and is giving all the money to Dee as a way to help out. Head here to pick one – or all three – up (they’re pretty awesome!), and head here to see where you can show some love to OWTH and Seth Anderson on the road!

Streetlight Manifesto announces 20th anniversary “Keasbey Nights” show

Ska super-heavyweights Streetlight Manifesto have announced plans to play a 20th anniversary show celebrating the legendary “Keasbey Nights” album. The band will celebrate by playing the single most played album in my collection from top to bottom.

Check out a personal favorite below.

In case your unaware “Keasbey Nights” was originally recorded by New Jersey ska legends Catch 22, “way back in 98, yo”. A few years later Tomas Kolnocky left the band to focus on higher education and upon his completion of said task, brought the world the awesomeness that is Streetlight Manifesto.

Streetlight Manifesto infamously re-recorded the masterpiece and somehow made it better? At the behest of Victory Records (ahem who they later sued and won). After many years of trying to avoid the elephant in the room the band has announced they will play this gem in it’s complete amazingness on May 5, at the Pine Belt Arena in Toms River, NJ. Act fast this bad boy will sell out quickly! 



DS Staff Picks- Lia Davis Top 10 Albums of 2017

Well, another 2017 has come to a close my friends and I can say with full confidence that while it has been a banger, I will be glad to send it off with a mandatory, awkward, New Years Eve Party. And by party, I really mean lounging around in my pajamas, eating mac n cheese, and watching movies by myself– we are all different y’all. Having joined the DS team back in April, this year has been a wild ride full of music journalism, writing, editing, and re-editing again. My life has been full of change (good and bad), new beginnings, and unfortunate endings but I think we can all agree that knocking back a couple together and gearing up for 2018 with anticipation for what’s to come is the best way to close out this shit show. Check out what my top ten albums of 2017 were below, pre or post party– your call.
