    Slaughter Beach, Dog - Tickets - The Boot & Saddle - Philadelphia, PA - January 25th, 2018
    Few bands can say they were born out of necessity, but Slaughter Beach, Dog can. In 2015, Jake Ewald, in the midst of trying to write songs for his other band Modern Baseball (which has since gone on hiatus), hit a patch of writer's block.

    The Obsessives - Tickets - The Boot & Saddle - Philadelphia, PA - January 18th, 2018
    Donations to: PAWS Nick Bairatchnyi and Jackson Mansfield built The Obsessives at fifteen, out of a childhood friendship and a misplaced love for blues-rock. "We wanted to start a band with a "The" because bands like that three years ago were cool, like The Black Keys and The White Stripes," Bairatchnyi remembers while laughing at his ninth-grade naivety.

Hello, tonight my small Yorkie named Josie got loose in the area tonight at about 5. I am out of town and she was staying with a friend. She is black and silver, weighs 15 pounds, is wearing a blue and white sweater, and has a blue harness with her name tag and microchip. If anyone in the community has seen her, she got away near broad and Mifflin and ran towards East Passyunk. I am horribly worried and feel helpless being out of town. If there are any sitings of her, she moves quickly and is probably very scared. Please call me at 914-582-0784.

Newbold CDC shared Brewery ARS's post.

Congratulations, Brewery ARS!

    The 10 Best Brewery Taprooms and Brewpubs (2017)
    It was another banner year for craft beer. As macro breweries continue to acquire new brands, craft breweries are opening at an incredible rate. There are now more than 5,000 craft breweries nationwide, meaning most Americans live within 10 miles of one. As a result we're all spending a lot more time in brewery taprooms and brewpubs.

    Pianos Become The Teeth - Tickets - The Boot & Saddle - Philadelphia, PA - February 23rd, 2018
    Pianos Become The Teeth have never been the kind of band who are easy to distill into a simple soundbite and that's more evident than ever on the band's fourth full-length Wait For Love, an album that sees the Baltimore-based act reconciling their aggressive past with the atmospheric turns of 2014's Keep You.

    May 6, 2015: Day One in the abandoned axe factory hadn't gone as planned, so today is the first time the five members of Parsonsfield will actually get to make music here. They'd been looking forward to converting this cavernous industrial space on the banks of the Farmington River in Collinsville, CT, ever since singer/banjo player Chris Freeman, who grew up nearby, brought it to their attention.
