Jarad Dawkins and Malcom Brickhouse are metalheads who met at a birthday party when they were four years old. They can’t be more than twelve now. But regardless of age, they’re all business when it comes to their image and their band, Unlocking The Truth.

They rally against bullying, drawing on inspiration from life experiences (school), and also write love songs. Their sound projects an irrefutable commitment to going against the grain while inspiring those around them. A budding Black Sabbath meets Slayer. At just under four minutes, this Avant/Garde Diaries interview only gives us a glimpse into their world, but we can agree that, yes, it does seem like they’re 30 years old.

No mention of an album in the works, but be sure to check out their complete pretend wishlist tour schedule for a date near you.

That new Joie de Vivre hotel rising at 50 Bowery is growing like a weed, having already ascended to a level of twenty stories (basically doubled its height in a month). The concrete superstructure is now visible […]

Essex Market ‘Street Seat’ is Months Delayed, but Expected Soon

The Essex Street Market is still banking on city-implemented infrastructure, albeit temporary, to help solve its foot traffic woes. As previously reported, the Lower East Side BID is working with the Department of Transportation to implement a seasonal Street Seat outside the brick warehouse on Essex and Delancey. And, of course, it’s delayed. Its debut […]

The ‘Booker and Dax’ Workspace on Eldridge Street is Kaput

Time to put away the beakers and bunsen burners. The Booker and Dax Lower East Side workshop is no more. Three years after its inception, tombstone leasing signage above the entrance confirms the closure. Booker and Dax proprietor Dave Arnold opened the 700 square-foot lab space at 54 Eldridge Street in the summer of 2012. […]
