Dark Stuff Update October '23: NEW Music // Concert Reviews // Music News (VIDEO)

It's been a busy couple of weeks here at the Dark Stuff -- lots of concerts and lots of new music. First off, I caught New Jersey veterans, The Gaslight Anthem. They played in a brand new venue called The Astro (https://theastrotheater.com/) in LaVista, Nebraska. 

Just a few days before that, I caught MSSV (https://mainsteamstopvalve.com/) which is a trio featuring Mike Watt (Minutemen, fIREHOSE, The Stooges), drummer Stephen Hodges (Tom Waits, T Bone Burnett, David Lynch) and guitarist Mike Baggetta. MSSV is another fantastic entry into Mike Watt's lengthy musical resume. Opening the show was the band Bad Bad Men (https://badbadmen.bandcamp.com/).

In my last update, I suggested that I might go to see Weakened Friends (https://www.weakenedfriends.com/), a new indie rock trio from Portland, Maine. Turns out that I did go see them, and loved them! Opening the show was a cool local band that I was unfamiliar with called Ojai (https://ojai.bandcamp.com/). 

I briefly talk about some new releases that I've been digging, most notable is the new album from The Mommyheads called 'Coney Island Kid.' Long time viewers of the channel know that I cover every new release from The Mommyheads and have been a fan since the early 90s. If you haven't watched my interview with Mommyheads singer/guitarist Adam Elk, make sure to check it out to learn the band's lengthy history: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ofZAbydK4SA&t=0s.

All Mommyheads albums can be purchased through bandcamp: https://mommyheads.bandcamp.com/.

After ALL that, I still find time to update you about some upcoming videos and projects here at The Dark Stuff.
