START A BAND. THROW A BRICK.
Our savior Evan speaks
Located in that section of the country that nobody is sure is Pennsylvania or New Jersey, Glassgrade are a young band looking to make a name for themselves, not trying to reinvent the emo wheel, but instead expanding on it with the stereotypical noodly/twinkly guitar parts but also adding the same type of flare to the bass guitar. Be on the lookout for lots of awesome stuff to come from these young guns and stream their self titled EP on the side of our page.
"Whiskey and crosswords" are the first three words in "Doing Yourself In", the ninth track of Braid’s 2014 release, "No Coast". A bunch of guys in their late thirties might find some solace, dare I say, even enjoyment in a nice glass of Maker’s and the Chicago Tribune. It’s fun to think about though, even though the song details a different experience, if the four members of Braid see themselves in that predicament - that is to say, finding a home in the mundane.

Grandview are a perfect example of a band that works hard to achieve everything they want. Having only been a band for a few years, the band just completed their first full US tour and booked it mostly themselves (with some help from T3M), a feat that many bands have a difficult time doing. Their blend of emo and indie rock, drawing influences from Brand New, make their music easy to relate to which is their downfall after you closely listen to their lyrics and start sobbing uncontrollably as they hit so close to home that you regret even getting out of bed that day. Their latest masterpiece, Everything Between Paint and a Wall, is streaming on the side of our page and is also available for purchase HERE.

Being in a band costs money but honestly, who other than people in bands really care?
This is a very good read for you bands that are just starting up.
