“As is customary in West Philly, I drunkenly stumbled into a house party last winter. About 30 people were packed into the cozy living room, forming a tight semicircle around a large band. Some musicians stood on the floor, and, due to the cramped space, a few played from the staircase. The music was warm and earnest, temporarily rescuing me from whiskey oblivion. I couldn’t see the singer, but above the fiddle, accordion and clanking percussion, I heard a gravelly, Tom Waits-y voice howling about running loose on the streets and raising all sorts of drunken hell.”

– Elliott Sharp

PREPREPRE:

When I was a young boy, every night my father would kiss me on the forehead and whisper into my ear, ‘on a hot day, a dog can chase a rabbit to death without ever even touching it. Sleep well, little bunny.’ Not to brag, but Fred Durst called us ‘the Guy Fieri of music.’ All we really want to do is make your earbones wiggle
