We’re thrilled to announce our Stoner Doom Volume 2 playlist for this week’s, 4/20 celebrations. As part of the release of the list we selected Chicago doom metal/stoner rock quartet Black Road as our featured artist for the month of April. Suzi, the lead vocalist from Black Road is one of the co-curators for this volume and we will be featuring her selections along with a few other notable bands over the next week.
Our Guest List curator for April is drummer and educator Chris Avgerin.

Hardcore punk music in general is cathartic for me. I eat it and breathe it daily. All of the bands I’ve played in have been fast hardcore punk bands, it’s really a style that identifies with me. With my photography, I’m all about capturing the raw emotion. Especially with Artists that move around and come off more intense, abrasive, or scary. It feels like a chain reaction with the audience. The whole room is engaged. That’s my favorite. I love being in the front and actually being a part of the show.
The Rock in Chicago Store is now open. We’ve partnered with Threadless to fulfill our official merchandise. Revenues […]
This was one of our strongest artist submission-driven playlists to date. The majority of bands submitted music stylistically fits in from the indie, post rock, and alternative rock genres. I’ve also added in a few classic tracks from the 90’s, 2000’s and 10’s that I’ve been going back to lately.
