The Alarm @ Aladdin Theater | Rock, Punk, Acoustic

The Alarm
Doors 7 p.m. | All Ages
Tickets: aladdin-theater.com

Their stage look was unquestionably a product of the ’80s, with enormous spiked-up hair accompanying a cowboy/old-time cavalry wardrobe. (more…)

Writing and recording these ten intensely soul-baring songs was a means for her to process and mark the last couple years, which have been transformative. “I looked around and realized that in many ways I wasn’t who or where I wanted to be. It’s been a process of letting go and leaving behind patterns and relationships and in some cases how I’ve considered myself. What these songs are documenting is the turmoil you feel when you know something has to change and you’re grappling with what that means. It means you’re losing something and moving forward into the unknown.” (more…)
