Slow down for Snow Covered Roads

Part PSA, part self promotion, a new song from the Formal Age.

Saturday at Thirsty Pagan Brewing – Avenpitch, The Horror, The Formal Age


The Horror

The Formal Age

The Formal Age with Matt Ray and Those Damn Horses

Facebook Event

The Formal Age are a local indie rock band reminiscent of the Cars or the Hold Steady.   They are “new” band, but the members are all veteran players who have been a part of the scene since the late 90s.   They debuted at Homegrown under the name “A Team / B Team”.

Matt Ray and Those Damn Horses is a 6 piece “string band” that specializes in high-energy, modernized versions of old songs taken from Americana and Roots music along with a healthy dose of original music.

It should be a great show with lots of variety.

Lost Cat – Found

Lost Cat

My wife and I found this cat in a parking lot along (ironically) Garfield Ave last night. I just brought him to the animal shelter. He was super-friendly and had been de-clawed and neutered. He’s mostly black, with a white chin and “socks” on all four feet. Figured I’d post because I know if I’d lost one of my cats I’d want someone to do the same. At the very least I hope he’s re-adopted.

Calling all Treasure Hunters


Does anybody out there own (or know somebody with) a high-quality metal detector?  I lost my wedding ring digging in the garden yesterday (should have removed it, I know…)   I already rented a cheapo one and tried it out but it wasn’t much help (too many false readings).  I’m looking for somebody with a high-end detector and the know-how to discern all the crazy noises it makes.  I’d pay you for your time.
