regarding Staggered Works

Living in the suburbs is slightly less boring thanks to the folks behind Staggered Works, a collective fighting to bring those of us who can't make it out to all of the R5 Philly shows art and music. Dudes recently started up their own Web site to help spread the good word. Check out for some DIY shows in the Bucks County area. If you like metal and hardcore, yer in luck. If you like anything else, well, sometimes they cover that too. Staggered Works is even looking to release music from the local artists. Look for War Pigs to drop some tunes in the spring. ART!

How long you think this ragtag operation will keep their doors open? I love their enthusiasm, but I feel like small-time outfits like this always burn out quickly.

Also, do you like cap'n jazz?

I think their biggest strength is that Staggered Works more or less represents D-town DIY much like R5 does Philly. While they've been a lot more focused solely on metal/hardcore lately, I don't see these guys going anywhere. As far as I know, none of them are doing this for a living anyway, so it's not like they're suddenly gonna be like, "Oops, time for a real job."

And I like CaP'n Jazz enough to not sell my anthology.
