The last day of the weekend, as is tradition, came in searing hot with temperatures hovering around mid-90s. Fairly balmy as far as the desert goes (I seriously do not know how Weekend 2 does it), in fact, but for a Coachella with some of the best weather I’ve ever experienced – no wind storms! […]

The best day of the festival almost turned out to be a disaster.

Greetings! With all of our March Madness brackets sufficiently busted (and my Red Wings slowly morphing back to the Dead Wings as their 25-year playoff streak’s been snapped and they pivot to the Little Caesars Pizza Pizzarena next season), we look forward to one of the best days of the year: Rather than building a […]

I was going to say that I’m not even sure why I’m writing this, but I’d being lying. After all, if you’re a metal fan with an internet connection, you’d need to have been sleeping under a rock not to have heard of Wintersun’s crowdfunding project, as well as all the reasons why you should […]
