Skillet

With anthems such as “You Ain’t Ready,” “Rise Up” and “Victorious,” it’s clear that everything Skillet does is epic. And that fact isn’t limited to their most recent album, which is also named “Victorious,” as anyone who has ever attended one of their concerts can attest to. It’s no wonder why World Wrestling Entertainment showcases the band’s smash hit, “Legendary,” as the theme song for its flagship program, Monday Night Raw. Everything about the band’s sound commands your attention and […]

From Ashes to New

While members have come and gone since the band formed in 2013, one thing has remained consistent for From Ashes to New — their hard rock sound has always been raw and genuine. When From Ashes to New came to town this time around, they were led by frontman Matt Brandyberry, along with vocalist Danny Case, guitarist Lance Dowdle and drummer Mat Madiro. While these four guys have only been together since 2017, they’ve clearly developed a bond that translates […]

Tom Wilson beats up Flyers, who beatdown Caps

Philadelphia prides itself on toughness. So much so, they actually built a statue of fictional boxer Rocky Balboa. While the “City of Brotherly Love” is busy fawning over make-believe pugilists, Capitals forward Tom Wilson has made a name for himself as a real-life tough guy — kicking ass and taking names (and winning the Stanley Cup, for good measure) during his seven seasons in Washington. For reasons that will likely forever remain unclear, forward Nate Thompson and defenseman Robert Hagg […]

Like Thanos, Defenders annihilate Guardians

Because everything went about as well as possible for the D.C. Defenders in their season opening victory over the Seattle Dragons, it would be reasonable to expect a bit of a letdown in their follow-up act. It’s safe to say that didn’t happen. If the Defenders were good in their first game of the season, they were great in their second act — systematically destroying the New York Guardians, 27-0, to record their first shutout in XFL history. New York […]

Defenders leave Jim Zorn seeing maroon and black once again

No one really knows what to expect now that the XFL has returned after a 19-year hiatus. Is it doomed to fail from the gimmicks and poor quality of play that plagued the initial incarnation nearly two decades ago? Or has Vince McMahon learned from his previous mistakes and put together a sustainable football league that is capable of sticking around? While it would be foolish to rush to any snap judgments after one weekend of play, it’s safe to […]

Any Given Sin

Any Given Sin closed out the decade on a serious high note. The band’s first single, “Dynamite,” took the hard rock world by storm and became one of the most played tracks of 2019. Eager to prove their success wasn’t a fluke, they released a follow-up single, “Another Life,” which was another smash hit that showed this Southern Maryland band is here to stay. Before taking the stage at Fish Head Cantina for their first performance of the new year, […]

Cowboys win, but lose. Redskins lose, but win.

Regardless of what the NFL schedule said, the 2019 season ended long ago for the Washington Redskins. Sure, the Redskins technically had one final game left to play out, but all eyes in our nation’s capital were already looking past a Week 17 matchup with the Dallas Cowboys. Is this the year Redskins owner Daniel Snyder finally listens to the disgruntled fanbase and fires Bruce Allen? Who will the franchise hire as the next head coach? Which of the players […]
