Hey there, “Music saved my life.” We’ve all heard some form of the above sentiment so often that dismissing it as cliché has become a cliché in itself. I grew up in the punk scene and it got to the point where every time I heard a friend of mine opine about how punk rock saved their life, I rolled my eyes so hard it was audible. Yet, like so many during the past year, I couldn’t help but see nuggets of truth in the cliché. As I’ve been struggling to deal with *gestures wildly* all of this, music has been my salvation. I throw on a guilty pleasure—like “Yahhh!” by Soulja Boy—when I need a pick-me-up. I listen to some soul, almost always Sam Cooke, when I need to unplug and relax.…

the inked playlist

We all know Alisha Gory loves her heavy metal, but her go-to playlist of songs covers all genres. Eyehategod “Dixie Whiskey” This is something I used to love as a teenager because it’s super angry. DJ Khaled ft. Drake “POPSTAR” This song kept me going through 2020. Mötley Crüe “Kickstart My Heart” It gets me amped, it’s such a fun song. Bob Marley “Jamming” It’s such a happy song and it makes it such a good time when you’re tattooing. Bad Bunny “Vete” I don’t know what he’s talking about, but I like it. Plasmatics “Rock N Roll” Wendy O is fucking badass. Nine Inch Nails “Terrible Lie” I have so many favorite Nine Inch Nail songs, this is just one of them. Metallica “Seek & Destroy” This has always been one of my favorite songs. It’s so hard. Travis Scott ft. Young Thug and M.I.A. “FRANCHISE” The beat is made to turn up to.…

painting the streets

Calligraphy, not unlike tattooing, is an art form that traces its roots to myriad cultures, each with their own rules and practices. The allure of calligraphy is in the way it takes something mundane, the written word, and transforms it into something beautiful. What was once thought to be a fancy form of writing seen mostly in medieval books and on wedding invitations has blown up in the last couple of years, making its way into graffiti and tattoos. One of the artists who is driving that revolution is Keaps. We spoke with the multi-talented creator about his love of calligraphy, tagging walls and more. When did you first fall in love with art? The earliest and most solid memory of me falling for art was when I drew dinosaurs in…

dashboard confessional

The year 2020 was set to be a highlight reel for pop-punk darlings Dashboard Confessional. After two decades together, bolstered by seven studio albums and hit singles like “Screaming Infidelities,” “Hands Down” and “Vindicated,” lead singer Chris Carrabba and the band were on the first leg of a tour celebrating the band’s 20th anniversary when the coronavirus pandemic hit, shuttering venues, and effectively, the entire world in its wake. “It was a drag to be pulled off the tour we were on,” Carrabba says over Zoom, a stark reminder of society’s perpetual state. “We were having a moment of real connection with that audience that has largely been with us the whole time. It was kind of lovely.” Back home in Tennessee with his family, Carrabba tried to keep hold of that…
