Last year, DJ Carlos Kowalski sat down for a chat with Deb DeMure and Mona D, the darkwave duo also known as Drab Majesty. After two years of near-constant touring, they recently retreated to Greece to record their upcoming album, Modern Mirror. It will be released in July 2019.

 Even the uncharacteristically hot weather could not keep Danish punk rock band Iceage away from the Bay Area for long. These post-punk rockers made a stop at The New Parish in Oakland, California on April 23, 2019 after playing two weekends at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. Iceage has been touring since the release of their fourth studio album Beyondless, released on May 4, 2018 by Matador Records.

On Saturday, June 22nd at the Fillmore in San Francisco, Toronto-based punks PUP took to the Bay with loud catchy riffs, self-deprecating humor, and more than a little bit of a smug attitude regarding the outcome of the NBA finals. Here’s KALX volunteer Kat’s take after speaking with PUP’s guitarist Steve Sladkowski and watching/moshing the show.
