Ex Cops' Brian Hardin discusses his dark pop aesthetic before Sunday's show at The Southern

Brooklyn's fascinating band Ex Cops came on the scene in 2012 with a sound riddled with cloying melodies and energetic hooks. Their first album, True Hallucinations, was extremely well-received by the press, who were mostly captivated by the band's record store cred that undoubtedly spurned their curious amalgam of different genres.

Netflix Halloween review: The American Scream

When most people think back on Halloween, the walk down memory lane may include the old neighborhood trick-or-treat route, the homemade costumes someone made you wear, those plastic vampire teeth that never fit inside anyone’s mouth, and using a pillowcase instead of a real bag for candy because it held more inside.

FEATURE SHOW
Thursday, October 30, 5 PM
