‘by all the drunken silhouettes’

Q1

As I’ve said before, this blog no longer focuses on album reviews or news or anything of that sort. The sole purpose of ILSUDH2 is to share my ‘live’ music experiences. I do my best to recap the shows I go to, but I just don’t have the time or energy to do much else these days. That being said, I still consume pop culture the same way I always have (in an obsessive, compulsive manner), so I felt it would be selfish not to share what I have learned along the way. For that reason, I will try to continue these quarterly reviews. For the sake of my (and your) time and sanity, I will follow the rule of ‘less talk, more rock’. The lists that follow will contain very little commentary. I’ve listened to (and watched and drank) a lot of crap so you didn’t have to. Now it’s your turn to put some time in. Luckily for you, these lists contain only the best of what the past three months had to offer.
