The past week has been…interesting. For those that may not know, along with writing and photography, my other passion project is a music website and podcast I handle with my friend in California (you can visit Kill Boring Music to read reviews, check out our concert photos, and listen to episodes of the show, orContinue reading “The Perks of Being a Tear-Harvesting Deity”

The Black Dahlia Murder 08/20/17—The Crown Uptown, Wichita, KS
I’ve been a Wichita resident for eleven years, and a metal fan for considerably longer. Until recently, those two things—being a metal fan and residing in Wichita—rarely intermingled, as live bands playing anything but country or classic rock were few and far between (Steve Miller Band, anyone?).
