you won’t need me where i’m goin

Simple Plan – you know the name, but do you know the story?  The nitty-gritty?  The highs, the lows, the drama, the bond that these five young people share?  For those of you who have just recently heard of the band, you might think that they’ve always been on top, that they’ve always had the […]

Boston, MA pop-hardcore act Four Year Strong (pictured above) will perform in New York City’s Irving Plaza on October 5 with the insanely strong support line-up of Comeback Kid, the Wonder Years and American Fangs. To be in with a chance of winning a pair of tickets, email your full name along with confirmation that […]

Earlier this week, Katy Perry hauled her autotuned ass to Sesame Street and indulged in a little duet with Elmo on her 2008 hit ‘Hot N Cold.’ Just… um… just… yeah.

OK, this is pretty old (witness the 9.6 million plays), but it really needs to be seen to be believed. You’ll never listen to ‘Total Eclipse of the Heart’ the same way again, and if you’re anything like me it’s a life-altering event on the scale of losing the use of one’s legs. But in […]

Falling Short Blackened Eyes Staring Better Off Dead Take Flotsam and Jetsam have been around for nearly thirty years and have never truly received the attention that they deserve. Some of the blame could be placed on bad timing (Cuatro) or bad productions (When the Storm Comes Down and Dream of Death) – and their […]

I bet you didn’t see this one coming. International woman of mystery and self-appointed spokesperson for all gay people in the world ever Lady Gaga has recorded a message (not actually an “address” – shoot me) aimed at the United States Senate, appealing for the US military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy to be abolished. […]

The resurgence of thrash continues… Over the last decade metal has made a huge resurgence. This popularity has inspired a lot of bands to make a deliberate return to their roots (Metallica, Megadeth, etc). It has also prompted the reformation of quite a few long-defunct bands from the past (Believer, Anacrusis, etc). You can now […]

Singer/songwriter Darren Hanlon is reasonably well-known in his native Australia, but he’s a complete unknown almost everywhere else. So US indie Yep Roc’s decision to fly him over for the big international release treatment is a bit of a risk then, right? Not really. Hanlon’s fifth album, I Will Love You At All, fits snugly […]

With the events of last week still fresh in my mind, I’ve been able to reflect on the contrasting Guns N’ Roses-related experiences the past couple of months have thrown my way. Last Wednesday, I was treated to the most bizarre concert-going experience of my life, as Axl Rose showed up an hour late for […]

For all that I have petulantly written about the death of music, whether it be a personal death inside of me or the death of the music industry as a whole, there are still so many things about music that I cannot deny – how it gets under your skin and you can feel it […]

Having already broken out in his native England, Frank Turner is a rising star in the US punk community as of late. As if his signing to Epitaph for all his releases stateside wasn’t enough of a sign that the British singer-songwriter has been gaining his footing in the states, successful tour spots with The […]

Baths‘ new album Cerulean has been blowing me away for only twenty four hours but I must share its excellence with the world. I’d write a review but the video for “Lovely Bloodflow” is memorable and haunting enough make the sell on my behalf. Baths – “Lovely Bloodflow” from anticon. on Vimeo.
