Hey, pumpkins! I hope you had a radical week. It’s getting a little creepy out there, with the trees becoming bare, clowns hiding in the woods and the presidential debates raging. This Halloween is going to be extra weird so you’d better figure out an extra weird costume (or three) for the occasion. Don’t be afraid, get out there and celebrate the witches that died fighting for women’s rights! Luckily there are lots of enchanting beings playing shows next week to make pulling on a costume worth the effort. So let's hone in on one that might fly under your normal radar.

Hey, critters! Welcome to Playtime. Each Friday I'll be writing about my offbeat local music obsessions. If you're feeling especially drained today, your eyes sore from photo-retouching, your wrists strained from silk-screening, back thrown from squash-picking, I have the perfect sounds to pour some life back into you.

We made it through another week, you guys! In case you missed my debut post last week, welcome to Playtime. Each Friday I'll be writing about my offbeat local music obsessions. If you're feeling especially drained today, your eyes sore from data entry, your wrists strained from milk-steaming, back thrown from box-lifting, I have the perfect sounds to pour some life back into you. Plus, a bonus local film that you can watch online for free! Say hello to Zammuto.
