[REVIEW] CEREMONY @ Union Transfer

If you’ve been following any of the reviews of Ceremony’s latest album, “The L-Shaped Man”, you’re aware of the criticism.  The Californian hardcore punk band has been accused of wavering from their earlier sound, the sound that was responsible for such a devout following.  And compared to last year’s show at the First Unitarian Church, there was absolutely a difference at Saturday’s Union Transfer show.  Not that the hardcore aspect...
