Transcendentality

Download the new EP for pay-what-you-want/can: Rob Crooks: Transcendentality We use the word transcendentality in order to distinguish it from forms of new-age or religious transcendentalism.

Gruf the Druid’s Surface Area Album Release Party

Thursday, March 26th, 2015

There are three concert memories I have in my mind at all times. One is the memory of some fool in the front row of a Public Enemy concert refusing an offer from Flava Flav to swap his Florida Panthers jersey for the latter’s clock necklace. All these years later, I still ponder from time […]
