Cleveland CycleWerks

Here in Cleveland we love car and motocycle culture. Maybe it has something to do with the history of a midwest town based on manufacturing or the rough and tumble attitude of the city. Either way, Cleveland has always had a thriving club and garage scene. With that foundation, Cleveland CycleWerks, whose headqaurters is located in the Historic Gordon Square neighboohood of Cleveland (The grand opening is Saturday October 5th - more info inside!), is a perfect fit for the city.

70s Rock & Biker Style

Rad bikes and wild nights from the decade that rocked the hardest, ya know the '70s. This is our little tribute to the longhairs and rock n' rollers that made us forget disco ever existed. The hippies are still luking in the woods and Sabath and Motorhead are making sure they stay there. All hail the glory days of rock.

Word on the street is the Pixies are finally ready to release a follow up to their 1991 album Trompe le Monde. Black Francis and co are launching a "massive global tour" in support of this new effort and who did they get to replace the sassy Kim Deal, who left the band officially last month, on bass? Why none other than Muffs front-woman and my all time favorite screamer, Kim Shattuck.

Chicago Beckons!

A typical day at TensionWIRE includes a heavy dose of typing, some blank screen staring and way too many cups of coffee, so it's nice to take a trip once and awhile. On this particlar weeked it was Chicago that called our names. When I heard that the Legendary Bolt Thrower ( and if you don't know this band well you may very well be unprepared for life) along with Benediction were not only playing but doing a two night show I knew it was a must, even with the 6 hour drive from Cleveland.

You've heard the saying before, "behind every great man is a great woman," and in the case of indie brand, Declan, it couldn't be more true. 

In 2010, Brand founder, Jason Fullmer, was finishing up his degree in Human Biology with full intentions of pursuing a career in medicine when an undeniable burst of creativity suddenly struck. There, in the middle of his last class of his college career, he realized that not only was he sick of wiping his glasses and touch screens on his shirt only to smear around dirt and oils, but he knew just the thing to fix it! Jason knew the world needed reliable and fashionable cleaning cloths that could get the job done without looking dopey.
