Deadbeats: Save the heckling for Ed Nonymous


If you’re seeing a band at a concert, you should stop heckling. Few things are more annoying to encounter at a show than a fan who heckles a band over and over again. I understand where band hecklers come from. More often than not, a band heckler clamors to hear his or her favorite song—usually…

Deadbeats: You can’t really collect audio files


In the past decade, music has almost reached a zenith of accessibility. The internet has all but unshackled the industry from the grubby hands of executives and allowed for a much more direct interaction between artist and consumer. While the big record labels still have their claws dug into major artists and genres, the average…

Deadbeats: Cabaret needs some performance enhancers


Last Friday night, Georgetown Cabaret hosted their annual charity show at the Black Cat. The show was a big success—selling more tickets this year than the previous two years combined.

For months, news outlets, activists, and social media slacktivists have buzzed about the two deaths and…

Critical Voices: Have Mercy, A Place Of Our Own


Have Mercy’s second LP, A Place Of Our Own, is a forceful example of emotive rock music and closely follows the band’s debut, The Earth Pushed Back. In spite of all their album’s strengths, however, the Baltimore four-piece fails to push their sound far enough to earn A Place Of Our Own a spot among…
