by ryan s. (pics by charles poladian) I’m happy to report that we’ve made it back to Brooklyn after another year of sweating through four fantastic days of music and human interaction in Manchester, TN for Bonnaroo 2010.  Showers and mattresses never feel as good as when you finally get back from the crazy trek.

TUESDAY TRAXX

by tatio herring ► The Lips are back, and they aren’t fucking around. Reminiscent of their noisier, pre-Soft Bulletin hayday, the lead off track from their upcoming Embryonic is a jam and a half.

QC INTERVIEW: WAYNE COYNE OF THE FLAMING LIPS

by kevin diamond Let me say this: Wayne Coyne can talk. The hardest part about this interview was trying to find an appropriate moment to ask a question. Let me also say this: the man is as funny, humble, and optimistic as you’d probably think. In our pre-Christmas interview, we talk about Oklahoma City, why [...]

BECK W/ MGMT @ THE UNITED PALACE
