When Seven Days cancelled its long-running, but slowly dwindling, “Pop Ten” feature a few months back, we promised the vacated section would be filled with an entertaining assortment of musical odds and ends, rants and raves, or “whatever the hell we feel like printing from week to week.” And we’ve delivered. From live reviews and extended profiles to interviews and the occasional opinion piece, the section — affectionately dubbed “The Hole” — is like a newsprint version of a mix-tape. That is, if people still made mix-tapes. But we digress.
This week, we’re adding yet another feature: the first in a semi-regular comic-strip series by local cartoonist Matt Aucoin. Seven Days is pleased to present the world premiere of “Heavy Metal Mechas.” Enjoy!
