Speaking of The Men, check them out this Friday at Saint Vitus (12/14), part of a Hurricane Sandy benefit (tickets).

Hansell rules! He has the insight and musical chops to know what's really list worthy. This guy is the real deal.

he adds even more poo to the pot by saying he likes a that merch band but then drops that he's tight with them. what a turd.

the guy also looks like he's 40+ and is still "raging"......so sad.

MERRY XMAS!!!!!
