VIDEO PREMIERE: Old school Easton punk rockers El Destructo reignite with ‘Live That Way’

An Irish 17th-century folk song passed down through the centuries from campfire to campfire, later to The Dubliners, then to the Thin Lizzy boys in 1963, and eventually found “her” way to metal chieftains Metallica, quips the following: “Now some men like a fishin’ And some men like the fowlin’ And some men like to […]

VIDEO PREMIERE: Scranton pop punks Anytime Soon visit Castle Bam before ‘Holding My Breath Through the Lehigh Tunnel’

The music of Anytime Soon often captures the sound of growing up on early 2000s punk and emo tunes, Vans Warped Tour, MTV, CKY DVDs, “Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater,” “Jackass,” and “Viva La Bam,” so when it came time for the Scranton band to search for shooting locations for their next music video, what better […]

VIDEO PREMIERE: Meet Terry Childers and kiss the industrial ‘Apocalips’ of Wilkes-Barre’s Trashbot

Approximately 300 years ago in an alternate universe, a very long-haired and wildly asshole-ish version of myself owned and operated a cafe and venue in the badlands of Wilkes-Barre.
