When first asked to pick up this blog, I was a bit nervous.
Music is important to people, at least I know it is to me. Talking about it can evoke a shared rage or a shared love. It’s in the background of our car rides, the forefront of our parties, and blended in the emotional fabric of our lives.
For me, classic rock takes me on childhood road trips. Alternative, pop punk, and ska fill memories of middle school. Noise rock brings back the high school warehouse shows in Providence that I lied to my parents about. Goth pop, post hardcore, and shoegaze got me through college.
For ten years Eric Danton has been immersed in Connecticut’s music, covering it with skill and grace. With so many local acts, local scenes, and local sounds, it is quite the beat to pick up. I will try my best to keep up the same quality you have come to expect for the past decade.
Most of all, I want to have a good conversation about our shared love for music.
Let me know what you want to hear. I want to hear it too.
