2017 was an incredible year for horror.
The Post is a brisk, empathetic tour of old-school, "get your hands dirty" journalism.
The film's cast and screenplay are strong enough to hold the audience’s attention and focus on what is essentially a shaggy dog story, without the need for added fuss or glamour.
Falls Downtown had something for everyone. A line-up with depth, an aesthetic location, plenty of glitter and food and much more was all readily available. Check out our comprehensive review and photo gallery here!
The crowd was great and the solidarity between artists made for a great night that was more than just artists performing. It was ambient, it was enjoyable, and quite truthfully, it was one of the best ways to kick off our 2018.
The Fruity Whites - full of rising stars of the alt/pop/folk type - is a transient jangle band with members spread across the country. Fortunately for us, they’ve managed to get together for BYO’Connor - a collection of 10 tracks with lyrics that live up to the genius wordplay of its title.
