  Editor’s note: This is the second in a series of pieces written for Nine Bullets by special guest artists, creators and other friends of the site.  Morgan Enos fronts the bands Other Houses and Hollow Sunshine.   It sometimes feels like an artifact of the Baby Boomer mentality to need a song to illustrate your […]

  Editor’s note: This is the first in a series of pieces written for Nine Bullets by special guest artists, creators and other friends of the site. Larry Fulford has spent time on the mic as a comedian and behind the kit as a drummer. He’s a peach of a fellow and we asked him to […]

Only Two and a Half Days Until Monday

Only Two and a Half Days Until Monday

I figured I’d share a little with you today. I don’t have any great words of wisdom, hell I’m barely treading water at this point, but I’ve been mulling over a playlist for a while and I put it together when I was supposed to be working this morning. So here’s a little something to […]

Malcolm Holcombe at McGonigel’s Mucky Duck – July 12, 2016

Malcolm Holcombe at McGonigel’s Mucky Duck – July 12, 2016

For over 2 decades and 10-plus albums, Malcolm Holcombe has treaded right on the cusp of notoriety and infamy. One of my favorite quotes on Holcombe has always come from Steve Earle, who said he was “the best songwriter I ever threw out of my studio.” That follows the intensity and controlled chaos that is a […]

I had to do a little curating but I tried not to do much. Some songs I couldn’t find a decent version of and some […]

Lonely Like Thursday – A TBT MixTape

Lonely Like Thursday – A TBT MixTape

As I go through my old archives I keep finding mixes that I really like and think need to see the light of day again. This one seemed perfect for a Thursday where I am buried at work. I can’t remember how in the hell I actually put these tracks together, in this order, and […]

Caleb Caudle, Porter and John Calvin Abney @ Club 603

Caleb Caudle, Porter and John Calvin Abney @ Club 603

Living in Baltimore there sadly hasn’t been a good venue to see acoustic that was worth bands playing so most of those shows went to DC or skipped our area as a whole. Enter Club 603 which is actually a house venue that’s been putting on shows since at least 2013 and with appearances from […]

9B Overhaul

9B Overhaul

18 months ago I took over running this little joint. It took a while to get my feet under me and I’ll admit there have been some stumbles along the way. Once I had my feet under me I decided to do a redesign, life happened, and everything moved very slowly. Fast forward a while […]

Mixtape: "Hole Dozer"

Mixtape: "Hole Dozer"

So I’ve been working a lot lately, and thinking about work. I’m too exhausted to put much thought into this post, so I’m not going to. I have a lot of feelings about work, and you can find a lot of them in this mixtape. It has a lot of stuff I really love: starts […]

UPSETLISTS #4

UPSETLISTS #4

Upsetlists are EP-length transmissions, upsetting set-lists, malfunctioning time machines, flashes of divine recombination. A coupla-song podcast. This one is for all the whales in captivity: Bob Neuwirth – “Kiss Money” – Bob Neuwirth (1974): Bob Dylan’s old buddy, Neuwirth’s recorded output resembles more outlaw country kind of stuff. He wrote one of my favorite Kristofferson songs, “Rock & […]
