Fred Pessaro’s Favorite Albums of 2019

Who The Hell Is WILD SIDE

Fred Pessaro — a lifer — was a long time BrooklynVegan and Invisible Oranges editor and show organizer before moving on to Noisey, CLRVYNT, Revolver, and other places. His taste in heavy music has helped shape not just our own coverage for over 10 years, but the music landscape as a whole. In addition to still occasionally contributing to BrooklynVegan and writing other places, and still booking shows, he also now works as a band manager. As the year is coming to a close, we’ve been publishing year-end lists from various music industry figures. Here’s Fred’s, who we’re always happy to have back:
