The Menzingers Live In Philadelphia (10/23/15)

The Menzingers certainly have exploded over the years, long gone are the days of catching them in a South Philly basement as proven by the 2 night nearly sold out back to back shows they had over at Union Transfer.  I headed over to Union Transfer right after MeWithoutYou finished their set. A decent amount of people bounced after MeWithoutYou, but plenty stuck around for the mid-tempo punk of The Menzingers.  Taking the stage and opening with “Good Times” off On The Impossible Past, the […]

The Menzingers – On The Impossible Past (For fans of Gaslight Anthem, Bouncing Souls, The Holy Mess)

Yesterday was the one year anniversary of The Menzinger’s third studio release On The Impossible Past, and a subtle reminder that I really needed to make a damn post on it already.  If you know anything about The Menzingers, you know exactly what to expect on their latest album: mid-tempo, raw, anthematic tunes. Originally from Scranton, PA, The Menzingers really exploded over the past few years once they moved to Philadelphia, and it’s been fun watching them evolve over the time.  On The Impossible Past […]
