North Jersey Notes: Civic, The Compulsions, Ghosts Of Eden and More!

One of my new buds, Donn Parent, has been playing drums with a cool hard rock band out of Staten Island called Decypher. How do I know they’re cool? Because I shared the stage with them back in January down in Atlantic City. Donn is originally from the same …
