The Limit Club: This Is Cutthroat Business (2011)

The gentlemen from Phoenix’s The Limit Club want you to swing through the apocalypse. If you happen to have their 2011 release This is Cutthroat Business on hand at the end of the world, you’ll probably want to follow their advice; the twelve tracks on the new album will have you swinging, shaking, rocking, rolling, and reeling into a psychobilly frenzy.

The digital billboard in the Starland parking lot said it all: on the desert backdrop of the Danger Days album cover, the words WELCOME HOME.

Braddock Hospital Memorial

To say Braddock’s not a very nice area of Pittsburgh is a bit of an understatement. It’s the epitome of what happens to a mill town once the industry dries up: Crumbling buildings are frequently splashed with graffiti, windows are boarded up, and storefronts are in utter disrepair. Amidst the harshly aged homes and decay is the city block of shredded metal and crushed concrete that used to be UPMC Braddock

Electronic music artist End.user announced a surprise show via his Facebook literally ten hours before he was supposed to go on stage. Google said the venue was an eight and a half hour drive away, and I didn’t think twice.
