Music: Mosey Down Main Street Concrete Guerrilla Stage – The Next Columbine

The Next Columbine Crew Shot

It was a humid July evening. Downtown Lafayette. The stairs by the Buttery Shelf. Mosey Down Main Street. Throughout the course of the evening, over 70 people have cheered for The Next Columbine (Tyrant Trent, D-Block Derek, Blakey Too Tall) publicly.

Described as “bad ass, kick ass, pretty much the best”, this stoop-metal band has played more than a few concrete slabs in their day.

On this particular occasion, they chose to play the July 13th Mosey Down Main Street due to the “millions” of captive audience members they could subject to their noise. After our ears bled (we forgot our plugs), we tried to encourage them to allow fill-ins, explore side projects, and get as many people involved in their artistic circle.

Enjoy the interview and bootleg of their single, Charybdis Deep.

Interview: #WeAreDaggers

News Channel Internet

We recently had the pleasure of interviewing #WeAreDaggers (Natty Morrison, Ryan King, Manny Cervantes) in front of the Knickerbocker Saloon in downtown Lafayette.

The night was electric; the hottest day of the year, it was Alex Bassice’s birthday celebration, Dino DNA was finishing their set, The Jim Jims were going to play a reunion show, and the night would be topped off with the Green Room Rockers.

In this interview, we were not able to discuss anything about the music of #WeAreDaggers. Instead, we talked about everything else in the world, including the influence Echo Delta has on the group.

If you want to learn more about this new media powerhouse in Lafayette, check out their band and fun blog at WeAreDaggers.com.
