Knock, knock. Who’s there? Jack O’Grady with a backside 50-50 on a massive marble hubba, that’s who! These Am Scramblers are no F-ing joke! Jack O’Grady, Aaron Goure, Jesse Lindloff, Gage Boyle, Griffin Gass, Jacopo Carozzi, Ish Cepeda, Myles Willard, Breana Geering and Giovanni Vianna filled up the vans this year and we have the deets on it all. The Scramble gets hotter each year. And speaking of epic road trips, Chocolate’s new ams—Hakeem, Carl and James—make the trek from Toronto to Jersey City to eat Garbage Plates and gobble up spots. Up front we have Milton Martinez’s SOTY party recap. Smoookes! Think you’ve got what it takes to become a professional amateur? Your favorite TM’s spill the beans on how to make it in the biz. Mark Appleyard breaks down his five great claims to fame AND we’ve got the annual T-Eddy awards, where even the losers are winners. Zounds-wise, Orville Peck talks about being openly gay in the country-music world and Population Control and Plague Vendor beat some eardrums into submission. Kids, don’t try this at home!
