The Menzingers, Jeff Rosenstock Live In Philly (3/31/17)

Man, it’s been a couple of years since I’ve last see locals The Menzingers play a show.  While I was at the filming of their music video for “After The Party” (alas, I did not make the cut), they only played a couple of songs and I missed their surprise show at Kung Fu Necktie this year.  I was pretty stoked to be seeing them, especially with the fact that I love their latest album After The Party so I was excited to hear those […]

The Menzingers – After The Party

Things are a bit strange once you hit your early 30s.  On one hand, you’re expected to be more mature, less reckless, and essentially have your shit together.  On the other hand, in reality age is simply a number and nothing just “magically” changes just because another 365 days have past even though you see your friends losing touch as they become busy with kids, families, and careers.  Nothing really changes while everything changes at the same time.  On their latest album After The Party, […]

I was part of The Menzingers music video shoot for After The Party.

I usually wouldn’t post something like this, but it was a pretty unique/fun experience so I figure I share.  I saw a post on Facebook a few weeks ago from The Menzingers talking about how they needed some extras for their latest music video shoot for their new song “After The Party”, and if interested write an email with a photo of yourself, your contact info, and a little bit about yourself to the production crew in charge of shooting the video.  I figured “I’m […]

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 – Rented World (For fans of Gaslight Anthem, Bouncing Souls, Weezer)

It’s been a little since I’ve last posted here, and my excuse has been world cup fever.  Holy shit, I’ve been obsessed watching every game… it’s seriously been borderline addiction.  Please help me… Anyways, one I’ve been meaning to post for a while now is the latest release by (now) Philly’s Menzingers.  Their fourth full length and released just two years after their previous effort, Rented World actually sounds a lot more like the precursor to On The Impossible Past.  My issue with OTIP was […]

The Menzingers Live In Philadelphia (5/24/13)

Last night I headed to Philadelphia’s sweaty basement of the First Unitarian Church to catch Philly’s own adopted punks The Menzingers.  I actually got there so late that I missed every opening band, but somehow made it in time to catch the headliners (I really lucked out). The place was sold out, sweaty as fuck, and packed.  I’m not going to lie, there was a period of time back in 2011 where I was seeing them all the time, but I sort of started taking […]

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 […]
