    What else did I do while I was in New Jersey? Oh, you know…lots of things. I arrived late Monday evening. My sister was on her way home from class at the time so she retrieved me from the airport. She had to read for class the following day so we stayed in, had a couple beers, and I introduced her to Westworld. It […]

    Radio silence – at least in Swan Fungus lore – is typically a sign of bad news. Lucky for you (and me!) this most recent stretch of noiselessness was due to my traveling back East for Thanksgiving.

Ten years and several releases later (they keep getting better!), it’s time to mark the anniversary of that first release. The band chose to celebrate by scheduling several performances during which they would perform both Young Mountain and 2007’s […]

    On Tuesday night I was lucky enough to receive an invitation to see Caspian perform at the Teragram Ballroom downtown. While I did not post the last time they were in town I did gave away tickets to the show. This time I made sure to capture some images of the performance to share with you. If only to poke fun of Ian that his band […]
