Ichabod Crane

"If you like the color black, people who think shows should be cheap, or Sleepy Hollow, check out Ichabod Crane."

I’ll have to admit, sometimes I need a fix of constantly loud, really obnoxious, thrash metal. Throw in some half-time southern breakdowns, and I’ll feel like I’m back in the blissful days of high school shows when I didn’t know anything else existed. In high school, I probably would’ve loved Ichabod Crane. Whatever stage of your musical experience you find yourself in, listen to this band. Laugh at how appropriate it is that all the pictures in their Facebook banner are mostly black, read about their creative title, or turn up your speakers and indulge.

One day ago, Ichabod Crane posted, “Started work on another cover for the next ep. It’s going to shred.” Shred is right. Any other word would’ve been supremely inappropriate for that guy to have used.

Ichabod Crane is against internet censorship, and in favor of cheap shows. Those are great things, and I’ll take anybody on my team I can get when it comes to promoting free speech and free shows. They were supposed to play a show where the venue wanted to charge ten bucks plus a cover for people under 21, but they were bold enough to drop out and make the statement against greedy venues. In my opinion, music should be free. Our culture is moving towards house shows and away from venues largely for that reason. Lots of fans posted how much they respected Ichabod Crane for dropping off that show.
