FDL_0214

By Michael Casper If you’re like me, when you take in this 25 year old’s exhibition at the THELMA, you’ll be spellbound, curious, mystified, delighted, and more than likely visually bemused.

Resurrection of The Medicine Show

Dream Syndicate

By Blaine Schultz Necrophilia, incest, arson, impotence, murder. And that is just side one. The Medicine Show, the Dream Syndicate’s 1984 album was ambitious.  If the band’s 1982 debut The Days of Wine and Roses firmly set them apart from hardcore punk and MTV fluff, then the follow-up was a record company’s futile attempt at landing the band on the charts. Or so it ... Read More »
