First, I will preface this essay with this: I apologize for my lack of writing skills, but my photography skills make up for it…I hope.
Walking into a Seshollowaterboyz show is like walking into a dark underworld of screaming fangirls and emotional “internet kids” (seriously, at one point I thought a girl was being murdered the way she was screaming). Beers are flying, pits are circling before the show even starts, and kids are flipping each other the bird. At least such was the case Halloween night at The Observatory in Santa Ana. Just a few days earlier the guys of SHWB decided to announce a Halloween show for just $10, which, of course sold out quickly. Elliot O’Connor, Bones’ brother and manager, was nice enough to let me shoot the whole thing. Elliot plays an enormous role in the behind-the-scenes operations of SHWB as well as being their DJ on stage.
This was my second time seeing SHWB in its’ entirety, and it did not disappoint. The first time I spent the show being tossed around in the crowd, and losing all of my mom’s pins from the 80s and 90s that covered my denim jacket; this time that did not happen, and I spent my time in the press pit. I’ve seen shows since last January, including Healthy Boyz and Xavier Wulf, but it had been a long time coming for the full Seshollowaterboyz show and I was excited. The line wrapped around The Observatory parking lot up the street, and fans were getting restless waiting for doors to open. “SESHOLLOWATERBOYZ” could be heard around the venue, before anyone even got in. It was a community of the children your mother warned you about, but you wanted to be. Finally doors opened, with the accompaniment of cheers, and the venue filled up. Eagerly waiting for the show to begin, the crowd got pumped up to 21 Savage, A$AP Rocky, and others. When the lights finally dimmed and the curtains opened, the crowd went crazy. Their fans yelled every word back at the guys of SESHOLLOWATERBOYZ and a few dared climbing the stage and diving back off.
I don’t remember Bones talking as much last show as he did this show, but his dark and fucked up humor came out. Mumblings of “respect your uncle” and “what if I hung myself up there” were what I could make out of his deep voice, which was contrasted with the warmth in which he (and the rest of SHWB) greeted their fans. That was my favorite part of the show, in all honesty. Every chance they got, each member went up to the crowd and shook their fans’ hands or high-fived them; Elliot even went up to a crowd surfer being pulled out by security to make sure he was okay. Like I mentioned before, this is a community, and the performers certainly care about and respect their fan base. No egos, no attitude; just love for making music and performing it.
Needless to say they put on such an awesome show that lasted a decent amount of time, and it’s always great hearing the music that I often play on my radio show (that influenced the name of it), live. I couldn’t believe it was past 2 AM when I left, and I could have easily watched them go longer. Their shows are fun and carefree, something that artists who take themselves too seriously lack. I will gladly be going to every SHWB show that I get the opportunity to.
This past weekend, October 22nd and 23rd, was the 5th edition of the annual Beach Goth festivities. And, of course, it rained one of the two times it ever rains in Southern California. This, however, did not rain on many festival goers’ parades, who continued to dance and splash around in giant puddles. This was all despite the chaos of cancelling acts and stage/ performance times rescheduling.
Other than the rain, Beach Goth seemed pretty similar to last year (which I covered here). This year, however, seemed to have many more people and the addition of one stage. The new stage and weird set times made scheduling which acts to photograph a bit more difficult than last year. There would be times when several people I wanted to cover overlapped, and other times I would have chunks of time with no particular acts that I was eager to cover. Nonetheless, I got to see many acts this weekend that I had been looking forward to for a long time, such as King Krule, James Blake, Corbin (fka Spooky Black), Bon Iver, and GUCCI MANE.
Both King Krule and Corbin are cool mysteries that I’ve never been able to see before, and neither disappointed. I was really excited to see Bon Iver headline Saturday night, with hopes of celebrating memories of high school, but to my distaste his whole set consisted of his newer electronic-esque music. It’s not that I don’t enjoy this music, I was just hoping to hear some of his acoustic songs that my angsty teenage years were filled with. The graphics were super cool though. The last set I saw before dodging the rain was the one and only Gucci Mane. If I said this wasn’t the set I had been most hyped for I would be 100% lying. The crowd was hyped, the rain did not dampen the moods, and it’s GUCCI. After getting to be merely feet from Guwop in the press pit at his first Cali show since being away, I headed over to VIP to meet another legend: Lil Mayo. If you don’t know Lil Mayo—1. You must be living under a rock, and 2—he is the most hyphy alien you’ll ever meet. You can find Lil Mayo on his snapchat smoking blunts, shot gunning beer, and dancing with any number of Lil Mayo groupies. He just so happened to pull up to my brother’s table to watch Gucci Mane do his thing. Lil Mayo and Gucci Mane at the same time was almost too much to handle.
The lineup was awesome, so when I found out that Beach Goth was no longer to be held at Oak Canyon Park, due to what is obviously The Growler’s idea of expanding Beach Goth, I jumped with joy. After spending 5 and a half hours in my car trying to leave the parking lot at Day n Night, I never wanted to step foot there ever again. This did not sit well with many ticket holders though, some demanding refunds. It was a little obvious that more people were trying to be fit into the Observatory grounds than last year, especially so when trying to maneuver from one stage to another. The Constellation room became almost impossible to get into a few hours after each day began as well. The security seemed much friendlier this year though, and I made a few friends passing time between sets in the press pits (waddup Stephen).
As for the future of Beach Goths to come, I’m not sure. Will I be covering it again next year? Hopefully. No matter how ragtag and unorganized Beach Goth is, there is something to be said about a festival that encourages all types of music and fans.
Check out some shots I took at Beach Goth 2016 above.
To the Western world Russia remains a mystery, despite current headlines outlining world conflict. Russia remains a symbol of Communism to many, and to others it is bears, vodka, and Adidas. This summer I got the opportunity to travel to the Motherland with my close native Russian and Kazakh friends, and found myself in love. Russia cannot be put into words, so I did my best with photographs. As Winston Churchill once said, "Russia is a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma."
When Yung Gerald is in town, you know I'll be there. This time, he performed at an arena way bigger than he has ever come close to on previous tours, and he did not disappoint. I've seen G-Eazy perform his last two albums on multiple occasions, but each time it's different and fun.
The visuals for this tour were on point; the cleanliness of this tour's stage setup contrasts the gritty model of Sunset Strip from his When It's Dark Out tour. My favorite graphics would have to be during G-Eazy's performance of "You Got Me" -- the words "Bitch You Got Me Fucked Up" flashed behind him with the music in several languages.
Per usual, Gerald gave an energetic performance that always seems personal to you, despite it being for a crowd of 10,000 or so.
My heart melted at the end of the show when Gerald walked back stage and screamed in triumph. It was a proud moment for everyone.
May 21st, 2016. The Paper Mixtape is a colorful arts & culture magazine founded by UCLA student, Morgan Cadigan. The magazine held it's third issue release party on the rooftop at the ACE Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles with sponsorship by The New York Times. The night consisted of live music from FVSF, Thugson, and previously featured Disco Shrine.
The Paper Mixtape is a student run magazine, in which I am a part of, focusing primarily on local LA life. Find online issues and everything TPM here.
Saturday, May 7th, I was invited to The Roxy on the sunset strip to photograph Royal Teeth during their set. About a year and a half prior to this I met the stand-in drummer, Austin Perez, outside of his gig opening for Bombay Bicycle Club in New York City. Austin joined Royal Teeth on their most recent tour around the country while their permanent drummer is at law school, and invited me out to see them while in LA briefly. The rest of the band consists of Nora Patterson, Gary Larsen, Joshua Wells, and Thomas Onebane.
I caught up with the group and some friends in the greenroom before their set, which was great to experience their dynamic. They’re a close group of young adults who enjoy joking with each other, talking about music licks, and cats. The majority of Royal Teeth are from Lafayette, Louisiana, and have extremely (extremely!) charming accents. Nora, their lead singer, seemed timid and soft-spoken while applying her makeup before their performance, but as soon as she stepped on stage she became a powerful presence. The group moved around and their fans seemed really engaged. The audience sang along to their catchy songs and danced around, filling the room with a warm energy. Their set included songs from their current album ‘Glow,’ as well as their new song ‘Kids Conspire.’
Their performance was lively and energetic, but what inspired me the most was their drive to keep going and do things themselves. During my interview with Nora and Gary, their other lead singer, they revealed that they’ve had a bit of a rollercoaster ride on their journey through music and the industry. Despite being asked to perform on American Idol and having a song played in a commercial, the band wasn’t exactly welcomed with instant attention. Record deals and management have fallen through, and for now the group remains independent. Nora took on the heavy task of tour managing for the first time, in addition to creating posters and merchandise for the group; all of this while on tour and worrying about the one million other things that come along with being a music group.
Stories like this inspire me because it shows that youthful hope is not in vain, despite the cynicism of adulthood. Even though I overheard a few conversations expressing concerns and worries about income on tour, it is still very obvious how much this group loves doing what they are doing. Despite rarely getting sound checks, abrasive clicks in their headsets, and having to manage everything themselves, Royal Teeth continues to push forward in their music careers. For now they are able to live off of their music alone and dedicate all of their time to it, but this might depend on their success in the upcoming months or possibly years. Royal Teeth has so much potential and heart it would be upsetting to see them fade to the back in the impossible music industry.
Currently the group is on a brief two week break before they begin the East Coast leg of their tour. Then it is off to work on some new music, taking things day-by-day, and embracing spontaneity. Both Gary and Nora expressed their excitement to go home and see their cat, and Nora confessed she is a bit of a homebody. Life as a musician seems to be a Catch 22 to the group though; while on tour they miss home, and at home they miss the road. Listening to the group members reminisce about their stories on tour, I can see that they are enjoying what they are doing for the moment. I look forward to seeing where Royal Teeth is in a few years, and I hope they continue to keep up with their drive.
First off, I will preface this by saying I will always love my job.
April 20th is a day when stoners and even casual smokers rejoice and celebrate their beloved tree. What better way to celebrate this holiday than with Chief Keef at Dab Fest? The Nexus Social Lounge on east 4th Street (yes, basically Skid Row) put together an insane lineup including MikeG, Healthy Boyz, PlayBoi Carti, Rich The Kid, and the one and only Sosa. Special appearances were made by Xavier Wulf, MadeinTYO, Young Gleesh, and more which made for an insane night. Everyone pulled up to this show and for some reason I was more shocked seeing No Jumper’s Adam than anyone else.
The venue had a kush taco stand outside and free dabs going all night to celebrate the holiday and fans kept coming. The energy was great, and despite some issues security had with the amount of people on stage and set times, the artists gave great performances and had fun. I honestly do not even know how to further describe the night in words, so check out some photos I took.
On a rainy Saturday night in Venice Beach, California, The Frights returned to LA from a US tour following the release of their new album, “You’re Going to Hate This.” The band held a free show for their local fans at the new hip record store, VNYL, on Abbot Kinney, before they play a sold out show at the Roxy on Sunday. The rows of turn tables were pushed to the side and dozens of fans filed in to experience a really intimate acoustic set. Mikey Carnevale, the groups lead singer, warned the crowd that he was sick and sorry if he sounded bad. At one point during the set when his voice cracked, he laughed out a, “holy shit did you hear that?” and continued to play. During an intermission, the group chatted and answered a few questions and admitted to gaining at least 10 pounds on their Taco Bell sponsored tour. Mikey and Richard mocked their bandmate Marc for stating that M.I.A’s “Paper Planes” was a really great song. If I remember correctly, in my last interview with them, the band also made fun of Marc for answering the question “what is the best band?” with Prince. Maybe it’s time to stop asking Marc these questions…
As usual, the crowd responded warmly to the boys and sang along to their favorite songs. The Frights have created a fan base of hardcore fans that adore them and follow them all over, and numerous times I heard, “take your shirt off!” I can understand why their fan base is so strong; the boys are incredibly relatable, light-hearted, and engaging. They won me over in my first interview with them, and I will continue to support them in their future endeavors. Word has it they will be having a big tour before the year ends with a secret lineup as of now.
Check out their newest album “You’re Going to Hate This” and follow The Frights to keep updated on what’s next!
December 16th & 17th at the Teragram Ballroom on 7th street in Downtown Los Angeles, Thee Oh Sees and Panache Booking held a holiday charity event where proceeds benefited L.A. Kitchen. L.A. Kitchen is an organization focusing on feeding homeless and reducing food waste. I was lucky enough to attend on the 16th to see Thee Oh Sees, Wand, and Fuzz, and it was an excellent show, my friend being very excited that it was my first time seeing any of them live. The fans went nuts for each performance and it was a great time for a great cause; I did, however, think at one point in the night that I may never be able to hear again.
Check out a few of the shots I got at the show above!
This Saturday, December 12th, I got the pleasure of photographing The Frights again at Long Beach California's Midnight Mass. Starting at 12pm and ending at 12am at MADhaus in LBC, it was a full 12 hours of punk rock. The crowd was much more genuine than the crowd at Beach Goth, and a lot friendlier too. The vibes were good, the circle pit was open, and the performances were incredible.
Fans of The Frights definitely get rowdy and definitely go hard; the pit was constant and huge, everyone was drenched in sweat, and many, many things were broken. The boys just know how to give a great performance, and you can tell they both love and have fun doing what they are doing. Looking forward to You Are Going To Hate This's release-- their new album-- and hopefully I will get to photograph another one of their sets!
Enjoy some photos I took from the night, above!
P.S. Thanks to Astro Lizard Records, Freakstyle Booking, Alva Skate and Pabst Blue Ribbon.

Taking place at The Observatory in Santa Ana California, The Growler's fourth Beach Goth was a combination of great music, drugs, drunkenness, and good times. With a two day lineup containing artists such as Riff Raff, Tomorrows Tulips, Warpaint, Grimes, Sir Mix-A-Lot, the Frights, Juicy J, Die Antwoord, Parliament Funkadelic and more, the crowd was a mix of every walks of earth. People passing out left and right, sweaty fans waiting all day at the barrier, and angry security guards made for an interesting sight. Back Stage was one step less chaotic, but I will say this array of artists definitely know how to get down. It was great seeing musicians from so many different genres interact and have a great time with each other, as well as support them onstage during sets. I was able to interact with many of the artists and they are some incredibly genuine people.
Beach Goth is growing larger each year, and it is uncertain if the venue will change next year to accommodate larger numbers, or if The Growlers will keep their roots in place. It was interesting enough seeing artists like Juicy J and Riff Raff appear on the lineup, but The Growlers are about including everyone, which leads me to think that they will want to expand what started as a small rag tag festival.
Needless to say, whether Beach Goth remains at The Observatory or not, I will (conditions permitting) be there to cover it and report back to you next year. Take a look through the gallery above to experience Beach Goth 4 through my lens.
Date: Sunday, October 25th 2015
Location: The Observatory, OC
Event: Beach Goth 4
Who: Julia Maltz with The Frights—Mikey Carnevale, Richard Dotson, Marc Finn.
This past weekend I had the pleasure of interviewing a band that I am actually a big fan of, The Frights. Originally from San Diego (and one from the east coast) the band has a very relaxed and care-free vibe and I truly enjoyed getting to chat with them. Their music is very 60s garage surf-rock that is very big in the SoCal music scene, and recently branching out into the rest of the country. Apart from their cool sound, I learned how extremely nice and goofy the boys are during our brief conversation following their 12:30 set on the main stage. From the very start the boys made me feel comfortable despite my insecurities over my recently lost voice, and answered every question in such a light-hearted and spirited way. We talked about all things from their new album and second full-length coming out this February (check it out when it does!), to their crazy rowdy game nights—which I’m expecting an invite to next time. So if there is one thing I can’t stress enough, even if their music isn’t your style, you can’t deny that they may very well be the nicest people on the planet.
Julia: So let’s start with the new album coming out, what can we expect from it?
Mikey: Well it sounds a lot better than anything else we’ve ever done. We actually recorded it in a decent studio. It’s good.
Richard: It’s a little squirrely at times, it’s a little crazy, a little kooky. It goes places you’d never expect.
Marc: It’s a record that you’ll turn on when you’re driving and you’ll be like “Oh this is cool, this is The Frights. I like this.” then by the end of the drive you’re in Texas when you were supposed to be somewhere in the middle of California--
Richard: --Mostly because of the Cowboy Troy influence.
Marc: But actually we are really happy with it.
Julia: Is it still the similar sound of your old stuff?
Mikey: Yeah, it’s still a Frights record for sure, but different.
Marc: It’s very different, but it’s still a Frights record.
(Juicy J’s driver comes scarily close to us and we get distracted)
Julia: So what influenced your sound? Is that just what you like to jam to?
Mikey: Sugar Ray. Sugar Ray influenced us. Uh we don’t actually jam. (Laughs from the band)
Richard: We don’t really play together a lot…
Mikey: Yeah Sugar Ray, Sugar Ray, and Sugar Ray.
Richard: We can’t stress Sugar Ray’s Influence enough. It sounds like a joke but they really are a big influence. They are the most underrated band of the 90’s, maybe the 2000’s.
Marc: When you become most underrated, do you become properly rated?
Mikey and Richard: No…
Mikey: Umm yeah, you know we love the California sun and good vibes. Please don’t put that anywhere!
(Laughs from the group)
Julia: Oh but now I have to! (Sorry Mikey)
Julia: So if you don’t jam, what is the process for writing your music?
Richard: We send paintings to Marc, Marc interprets the paintings through sound—
Marc: And then I enter this weird state where I don’t know what I’m doing and then I wake up three days later with a whole album.
Richard: It works for us, it doesn’t work for all bands though.
Mikey: I write the songs. (Collective Laughter)
Julia: Do you get the sound/ instruments first and then the lyrics?
Marc: For this yeah.
Mikey: Well this record was a lot different than anything else we’ve done before, before it was just like we had a song then I went into the studio and made up words while we recorded them. Now this time it was very different.
Marc: We took the songs that he wrote and we brought them into the studio. As soon as we started recording, we decided to take the songs to a crazy new direction which was amazing and something that we’ve never done before. And I guess it reflected into what we’re trying to do after that, trying to keep that sound but not give a fuck.
Mikey: Yeah, we changed a lot in the studio. Just trying to sound better than we used to sound.
Julia: So how do you keep that nonchalant, don’t-give-a-fuck attitude as your fan base grows?
Mikey: Uh…Because we still don’t feel like we’re getting bigger. I mean, we know there is obviously success and there’s cool shit that happened to us but it’s still really cool shit happening to us as opposed to “oh we deserve this now”. Like today we were like “holy shit, why is everyone here to see us?”
Richard: I feel like somebody who walked into the wrong room and nobody noticed I wasn’t supposed to be there. Like this show for example, I feel like we didn’t really belong here –this is just my opinion, not speaking for the band—but nobody questioned us and that doesn’t really make much sense to me.
Mikey: It’s a really humbling thing. I mean it’s super humbling, like we sold the Echo a few days ago and we’re from San Diego so that was super weird being able to sell a place in L.A. Like most people would have sold The Echo and not think much of it, but I thought it was a really big deal and really cool that we did that, so it feels weird to think anything other than “wow this is nuts”.
Richard: At the end of the day we’re just lucky. Well fortunate, lucky is a bad word.
Marc: Because we just did a tour, and it was our first out of state tour as the headlining band for lack of a better term, and each show had more people than I expected. It was so strange because I just didn’t expect anyone to come see us, it’s still the feeling that you think the fact that anyone wants to see you is just weird and really cool.
Mikey: So basically we don’t know how to answer that question (Laughs from everyone)
Julia: No that makes sense. Is it weird seeing people older than you at shows?
Mikey: Yeah that’s the weirdest thing for sure, that people older than us like our music at all. If I see anybody older than us I feel really insecure about those people.
Julia: But they’re listening to you for a reason.
Mikey: Yeah I guess so!
Marc: Who knows, you have to ask those people.
Mikey: Yeah that’s a weird thing, we don’t see that as much as we see teenage fans, but it’s really funny to see that people older than us like it. It makes us feel better.
Marc: It’s going to be interesting with the new record that comes out, because it’s a different sound, to see if we get an older demographic which would be cool also.
Mikey: That’s what I think the new record does, it keeps The Frights that the younger kids like but then there’s the new production that the older people can get into.
Richard: A little something for everybody. It’s like the value meal.
Mikey: That’s a good analogy.
Julia: Are you going to continue to progress to an older sound, because obviously you guys are getting older?
Marc: I think the worst thing that we could do as a band would be to try to revert to what we did before.
Mikey: Yeah, there was somebody who reviewed us and said something about how we’re not growing up or we’ll never grow up. It’s funny because even when people see us today they only really know us from our first record, which came out about two years ago.
Richard: A lot changes in two years man.
Mikey: Yeah a lot changes in two years, it’s a long time.
Julia: You can drink now.
Richard: Yeah we can drink now, that’s one change.
Mikey: People who don’t think we’re going to change are going to be very disappointed. Because it’s definitely very different, we’re not just singing about high school kid stuff anymore.
Julia: Then you have the people who get mad at you for changing.
Mikey: Yeah, fuck ‘em.
Marc: I’d rather get those people mad than get the people who don’t think we would change.
Mikey: I mean I used to look at bands I liked that no one knew and say, “Man they got big they sold out” and that’s going to happen for sure.
Richard: It’s natural, any artist is going to change over the years. If it ends up becoming something you don’t like any more than whatever, it’s your own progression.
Marc: But at the same time it’s still our shit, but better.
Richard: Yeah, it’s not even that out of the ordinary. It’s not a hip-hop record…or maybe it is.
Julia: So what do you want people to take away from your music?
Marc: That’s a good question. I want people to turn on our record and listen to it all the way through and feel like they’ve seen one of those movies that they’re always going to not quite remember the name of, but years later be like “that was that movie!” and that’s it. Actually I have no idea.
Mikey: I think it’s a really personal record. I think people would connect to it and like it. It’s personal and broad at the same time, like a lot of the first record was all of these teenage problems and now it’s 20 year old problems so I think people will connect to it. I don’t know what they will take away but they will connect.
Julia: Whatever they want.
Mikey: Yeah I mean there’s a lot of little funny moments where you can hear us in the studio and that’s always fun. So I don’t know, I have no idea.
Richard: (While miming the whole thing) They should take our music and look at it like a mirror like a self-reflective, introspective type of…up to interpretation… kind of mystical. A little mysterious, no one knows anything about it, no one knows anything about us at the end of the day.
Julia: Well what do you want people to know about you?
Richard: That’s the thing, I’m glad you asked…Rock n’ Roll is here to stay! (More laughter)
Mikey: Yeah that works. Rock n’ Roll.
Marc: As all of our favorite band AC/DC once said…you know I’m not even going to quote it.
Julia: So you said you don’t really jam so what do you do when you’re together?
Mikey: Well we practice for shows, they live in L.A and I live in San Diego so we don’t get to hang out as much as we used to.
Richard: We just hang out, we’re not really fun. We just play video games maybe, we played Risk the other night for six hours.
Marc: We dressed up as diplomats and played Risk to classical music.
Julia: That sounds fun.
Richard: Mark and I live together, we do homework sitting next to each other.
Julia: So I have to ask, any crazy tour moments?
Richard: There’s this one moment where I ask the band what their favorite band is.
Mikey: Put on the record that Marc’s favorite band/artist is Prince!
Richard: Oh no no, not favorite, what the best band ever is expecting like you know, Led Zeppelin or The Beatles, but no. Marc said Prince. What do you think about that?
Marc: I mistakenly took that as most influential or talented. My first mistake was that he is not a band, he is a solo artist, (laughs) and my second mistake is that these guys don’t appreciate good funk and symbols as names. Even though it was a little too much ammo for these guys to give me on tour, I have to stand by it or I’ll look even worse.
Richard: Solid defense.
(Here Richard spends a solid three minutes putting the phone charger back into my bag for me)
Mikey: Yeah it wasn’t a cool tour story but it’s fun to make fun of Marc in that way.
Julia: Yeah you guys sound rowdy from that.
Mikey: Oh we’re fucking nuts.
Richard: I read like 30 pages after a show one night. We’re really boring.
Mark: Your 21st was fun…
Richard: We’re not going on record about that.
All I understand is that at some point a certain someone’s butt was out. They kept their lips tight.
Julia: So what’s next other than the album?
Mikey: We’re breaking up tomorrow.
Richard: This is exclusive to you, first dibs on this info.
Marc: Oh yeah, there are several reasons.
Richard: We can’t get into that now, I think the interview is over. Sorry.
Mikey: But really it’s just the album, we’re doing a couple of shows leading up to the album then it comes out in February.
Richard: We’re trying to merchandise some new items as well like aquariums or bobble heads.
Here we wrapped up our conversation and I got some goofy shots of the boys hanging off some barbed wire and each other. Overall The Frights are just a group of really humble guys playing some super rad music. We got to share a lot of laughs and it’s great how they don’t take themselves too seriously as often occurs in the entertainment industry. Check out their current stuff (For Sure- EP, The Frights, and Death Frights- EP) and keep an eye out for the upcoming album, You Are Going To Hate This, this February!
