Ringo Deathstarr @ The Slidebar

On Saturday night, Ringo Deathstarr – my favorite crazy shoegaze kids from Austin, played a show at the Slidebar in Fullerton. They sounded fine to me, though they’d sound better in a larger room with better acoustics. Apparently, I only see them in crappy venues with bad sound. This was exactly two years from Read more…
