Shoreworld: Damian A. Cordisco – 1963 – 2013

Shoreworld: Bruce Springsteen In Focus 1980-2012 – Photographs by Debra L. Rothenberg

It seems that with the invasion of Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram, picture taking has experienced a growth of immense proportions.

North Jersey Notes: Streetlight Circus, Stagger, Voodoo Terror Tribe and More!

I came across another great New York City band last week and they go by the name Streetlight Circus. I’m starting to notice a trend coming out of the city that never sleeps. There’s more rock ‘n’ roll coming out of it more than ever and they’re starting to make …

North Jersey Notes: NoraStone, Atom Strange, Young Muse Festival and More!
