My name is Pat and I play guitar in a band called Polar Bear Club. When I am not playing I am out on the road with Against Me and Four Year Strong.
This is a blog where I ramble about music, guitars. musical equipment, touring, and whatever else that sparks my interests. Occasionally I will post some interviews with friends and artists, and some entries from the road as well.
When I'm not on tour I do a Podcast with my buddy Kris Hayes (@ludakrishayes), where we talk gear with other friends, musicians, builders, and gear nerds. You can subscribe to our show on iTunes.

What's your opinion on fender eighty six amps? Is that Jonny Greenwood tone worth $130 plus shipping?
Hey Pat, just recently found your blog and the podcast and its great! Ill be at the Against Me! show in Albuquerque if you want any restaurant recommendations or anything lemme know! I was wondering if you could give me a suggestion about combo amps? Im looking for a combo amp that has great early silver face sort of clean tones, with reverb. I love the Princeton Reverb, but I'm not sure if i should save and get the actual thing or if there is an alternative, preferably under 20W and under $800
