Can classical be underground?

By SAM PFEIFLE  |  November 14, 2008

JAY BASINER, a/k/a J BIDDY, has a new name for his band, THIS WAY, and they'll release their new debut disc, We Could All Make History, with a December 12 show at the Empire. The band were at one time called CROSSFIRE INFERNO, but their sound has progressed to a point, said Biddy, that it's really not the same band anymore.

Correction: Tarpigh’s CD-release party – with Big Blood, Micah Blue Smaldone, Crank Sturgeon, and many others playing songs from the band’s catalog – is at 8 pm at the Meg Perry Center on November 29. Free CD with $10 donation.

    Ryan’s calling card is his sincerity. While the production and presentation are of a genre, you won’t find him talking about puffing the chron or dissing women or dropping a million f-bombs or using a bunch of contemporary rap jargon. He’s got a plan and he executes it, with more variety and modes of attack than he’s had on display to this point.
