COACHELLA: DAY 2

by Scott Iasillo Day 2, a day that really did not have the affirming promise of live acts as day 1 and day 3 gave me. With that said, I was extremely surprised at what I witnessed. Perhaps going into a music festival with no demanding expectations is the proper way to enjoy such a [...]

SPLENDOUR IN THE GRASS WRAP-UP

by eliza czander (reporting from Australia) Splendour In The Grass. What can I say? A piece of my heart, and definitely my mind will forever be left in Byron Bay at the Belongil Fields. As well as about 300 bucks, a few pairs of sunglasses, and arm fulls of glow sticks. Artist: Architecture In Helsinki [...]

SPLENDOUR IN THE GRASS – AUSTRALIA

by eliza czander Splendour in The Grass is only one short week away, and God Damn am I psyched. Kicking off the day this Saturday will be the US band making the LONG trip to Byron Bay, and playing waaay too early. Manchester Orchestra, I thought deserved at least an afternoon slot, but what can [...]

2009 BONNAROO WRAP-UP

by neil, alex, & muggs The weekend was a break from social convention, an immersion into music of the last 20 years, and a psychedelic adventure in Manchester, Tennessee.  An illustrious collection of Brooklyn indie rockers graced the Bonnaroo stages over the four day affair, with some surprise standouts. We’ve got band by band breakdowns [...]

SUCKERS CD RELEASE PARTY W/ TANLINES

by brendan mcgowan (pics by victoria jacob) If you’re at all following, you know, things in general, you’ll have heard of Suckers by now.

MGMT AND JUSTICE @ WEBSTER HALL

by eliza The venue was packed; security said they were 100 over capacity. There were people all over 11th Street scalping, buying, teenage girls scouring for a chance to see the beautiful boys of MGMT. I was a little nervous walking into the concert last night that this band would be all hype and no [...]

BECK W/ MGMT @ THE UNITED PALACE

photos and post by marc evan Beck with MGMT? Wow. When this tour was announced it seemed an ideal combination. A lineup hearkening back to the dream-team of Beck and The Flaming Lips. Missing that classic tour (wherein the Flaming Lips not only played a full set but also served as Beck’s backing band) is [...]

AUSTIN CITY LIMITS: DAY 2

by zander(s) Day 2. A late start. We got to the media tent – by the way, we must mention all of the awesomeness involved with the media tent. Not only does it function as a place of solitude and rest away from the masses, they also comp you sick drinks, delicious barbecue, and of [...]

MP3 OF THE DAY: WEDNESDAY 8/6

by bmac Recently I’ve been addicted to mash-ups. I tried to make one a few weeks back, but after 10-12 hours of tweaking I only had about 4 bars worked out and some serious ADD kicked in. If there are any talented music editors reading this – try mashing up the following songs: My Body [...]

But you wouldn�t have known it, based on the happy smiles on the faces of the hordes and hordes of people; the people who descended upon [...]
