OFF TO BONNAROO

by ryan s Another Bonnaroo is fast approaching and I’m happy to have started the drive south to Manchester, TN.  The most common question I get is “who are you most excited to see?”  Which makes me realize that this year I’m not driving toward a certain sound, I’ve become addicted to the unique experience [...]

DEAD BANDS: ISIS

by chuck bell I was hoping that this day would never come, but unfortunately, post-metal icons ISIS have decided to call it quits. After 13 years and five incredible albums, including last year’s stunning Wavering Radiant, Aaron Turner & Co. are going out at the top of their game. They will be completing their tour schedule [...]

ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: ERIC DROOKER

by greg dybec For many of us New Yorkers, our ever-expanding, forever changing, perpetually intriguing city is something we have become accustomed to.

THE SUPERIONS EP

by mary leary I’ve been listening to boring, pretentious claptrap and exhaustively intense rock all afternoon on about three hours’ sleep (don’t ask). Buried near the bottom of my review pile is this EP. I’ve spaced that it’s the B-52s’ Fred Schneider’s new project. So when I start listening I think it’s some goofy Floridians [...]

The exhibition was originally scheduled for tonight but postponed due to some more over-hyped snow in the Northeast. Sketch books were sent out by request to individuals around the world, [...]

AMAZING BUILDING PROJECTIONS

by bmac Projecting shit on buildings is cool.  I’ve seen movies, music videos, random artwork, and even projected laser graffiti, but this is taking light art to the next level. Custom animations made for a specific building and projected with super high res equipment. I like how they all have a part where a giant monster [...]
