The Skinny: Davey Muise, lead signer of Boston, Massachusetts-based, Pure Noise Records post-hardcore vets Vanna, dropped by our Toronto, Canada studio when the band was last in town. Ahead of their show at the Hard Luck Bar, Muise shared with us just what music means to him, plus shed light on his awesome initiative called Find Your Shovel.


Born in 2003, V13 was a socio-political website that, in 2005, morphed into PureGrainAudio and spent 15 years developing into one of Canada's (and the world’s) leading music sites. On the eve of the site’s 15th anniversary, a full re-launch and rebrand takes us back to our roots and opens the door to a full suite of Music, Film, TV, and Cultural content.
