Astari Nite: A Dark Brit Pop/Indie Rock Wonder That Moves Onto The Top

In 2007, Astari Nite emerged into the Miami local scene categorizing their genre as dark brit pop/indie rock. That same year Astari Nite released their first demo entitled, “Winter’s Gone“.

[Official Review] Awesome New Republic & Washed Out on 1.21.11

Tron [trɒn] verb: The unintentional act of inebriating oneself to the point where a fiercely abrupt and unexpected change in judgment manifests in overly emotional, aggressive and incoherent drunken behavior. “Damn bro, we were having an awesome time until you fucking troned.” Chugging first generation grape Four Loko before an indie show will always result in one of two things. A complete and utter loss of rational thinking A serious desire to take a huge shit. Last Friday night was no exception... Read More →

This Saturday, EVERYBODY Gets a D.U.I....

goobs (chanting or eating a mic?) and Ivan, fisting the sky for some sort of political movement. THIS is friendship. There are many characters in the 305. Some of them are a little bit crazy, (HELLO Duchess of Doral!) and some of them are a lot of crazy, but in an endearing and round way. (I was referring to myself when I wrote that.) Each one of these special persons are spices in the melting pot of our city and they make it tasty and nutritious. This weekend, one of those spices–I like to call... Read More →

Graff Toyz: Bring Graffiti Home With You

Win a Graff Erase Board from Graff Toyz, instructions toward the bottom of the post. Good luck! How many times have you said to yourself “I had that idea years ago!” or “Why didn’t I invent that?” I mean, really with the success of the pet rocks, sea monkey aquariums, shake weights and pajama jeans plenty of us should be retired, sipping on drinks in the Caribbean with little umbrellas in them. Jay Bellichi had plenty of ideas, he grew up in Boston scheming and dreaming of art and how he... Read More →

Rewind to 2004. I’m sitting there listening to Detroit Deli. An album that had just been released By Slum Village. Whole album is insane, as always and then it happens… the last track, Reunion, comes on. The amount of “WOWs” that have come out of my mouth while I listened to that whole track, was overwhelming. It’s overwhelming every time I listen to the track. The story behind that track is insane, but also not what we’re talking about. What I’m focusing... Read More →
