One of our closest friends, David Horvath explains how Uglydoll wasn’t just born out of a plush doll, but it’s a process of drawings that aren’t just doodles like what most people would think. Uglydoll is actually born out of stories from own daily lives. The things that happen become situations between characters. It’s much deeper than you’d ever think. I’m proud to have directed David Horvath.

Stay tuned for Shizu Saldamando on 5/6.

SHOW REVIEW: THE EVENS AT THE VEX; NEW MUSIC: BAD RELIGION, T.S.O.L., BEST COAST, BOB MOULD

By MARTIN WONG

Last week’s Evens gig at The Vex was great. As the progressively heavier sound of their albums implies, the live show has become more rocking as Ian Mackaye and Amy Farina’s musical partnership rolls along. >>
