Tula is Vera Friggin Good

January 3, 2018

Coming down the home stretch, 2017 seemed like it was going to go down in the books as a pretty shitty year for most people, but fortunately for all of us, Tula Vera closed out the year with the release of their self-titled debut full length album.

Jean Pool Saves the Elephants and DIY

June 18, 2017

It is absolutely essential to note that every single band that performed tonight deserves praise and accolades. Use Big Words, Electric Sensei, ManDancing, Tula Vera, and Will Wood compromised the rest of this truly impressive lineup and helped to give Jean Pool the badass, hard rocking celebration they deserved.

Regardless if you’re sitting in the pews or hunching over at the bar, there is a need for escape and pray for help. For the broken trodden, tired, and blue, there is just a place that houses such a person and the concerns towards safeguarding the music, art, and culture of their identity. This is more than just another venue or club as it yearns to present itself with a D.I.Y. based environment free from capitalistic gains or egotistical movements. No, this is more than just "New Jersey's CBGB's" or some hole in the wall. For many, this is our fucking home.
