Review: Sold out premiere of 'American Wrestler' in hometown Petaluma Special

Petaluma - The special premiere of "American Wrestler - The Wizard" at downtown Petaluma's Boulevard Cinema 14 last night was sold out. And for good reason, everyone likes a story of redemption and unexpected outcome when all seemed dim.

Review: Dumb but sometimes amusing ‘Rock & Roll Christmas’ opens in T.O. Special

Toronto - “Dee Snider’s Rock & Roll Christmas Tale” sounds like an absurd parody TV special from “The Simpsons” or “SCTV”. In fact, it kept reminding me of the old “KISS Saves Santa” bit from “Family Guy.” In 2015, life imitates silly art.

'Down With The Dawn' has a decidedly analogue-leaning cover that reflects the proclivities of its creator. The album art directly references monochrome computer monitor displays of the 1980s.
