Kate Nash @ The Fonda – 11.23.13

Kate Nash @ The Fonda – 11.23.13

Photos by Michelle Shiers // Michelle Shiers Photography Ed. Note: The longer our teeth get, the softer our hearts become for coy sirens with regional accents and a knack for the go go rock and roll beach style that’s made LA such a haven for fashionable dirtbags…again. So, of course,...

Death Grips – Government Plates

Death Grips – Government Plates

I used to entertain the idea that I was a nihilist but I’m not. I’m just really not that good at thinking about the future. True, I have some issues with impulse control now and again but I’ve buried such a fertile seed of Catholic guilt way deep in me...

Trouble Books – Love at Dusk

Trouble Books – Love at Dusk

What Trouble Books do is beautiful and that can be very hard to hear, sometimes. Not that I have any problem with beauty. In fact, I work actively to entrench myself in art and experience that echoes the spiritual success of aesthetic arrest but – to be perfectly honest –...

Big Freedia @ The Echo – 11.14.13

Big Freedia @ The Echo – 11.14.13

Ed. Note: After years of Charles roaming the office, late at night, half drunk and three-quarters naked demanding “Y’ALL GET BACK NOW!” and calling for “AZZ EVERYWHERE! AZZ EVERYWHERE! AZZ EVERYWHERE!” while doing his damnedest to twerk that sallow pale ass of his, Ben gets it. HE GETS IT! He...

LISTEN! to the Cascading Drug Dream of The Casket Girls’ “Same Side”

LISTEN! to the Cascading Drug Dream of The Casket Girls’ “Same Side”

I knew I’d like this band. As much as I hated their name and their repeated, inexplicable appearances on NPR while I’m taking my morning coffee, trying to convince myself that life is not an infuriating extension of a high school summer vacation because…well, I guess I just hate myself…I...

The World Is a Better Place Thanks to the Songs for Kids Foundation

The World Is a Better Place Thanks to the Songs for Kids Foundation

We all know that Charles likes to cry sometimes (though we still let him believe we only think he’s vomiting) but tonight our man’s a wreck. Just choking and shivering and refusing to speak lest he release one of those old man Intervention howls because he just learned the story...

LISTEN! to the Glimmering Wondernoodles of El Ten Eleven’s “Nova Scotia”

LISTEN! to the Glimmering Wondernoodles of El Ten Eleven’s “Nova Scotia”

For a man who is such a sucker for Canada, you’d think I’d be sharing citizenship with our friends from the Great White North but no…not at all…I’m a damn American and, as such, am resigned to my status as fat, white devil. So, yeah. I’m also a big damn...

Tin Ear Tuesday – Bruise the Lad

Tin Ear Tuesday – Bruise the Lad

Tin Ear Tuesday – Bruise the Lad from pinpointmusic on 8tracks Radio. Yeah, you know, I was beginning to think that TET was dead too. It seemed a logical and merciful thing to let this labor of late nights and lead libations just go to ghost considering what little attention...

SoMo @ Antone’s – 11.14.13

SoMo @ Antone’s – 11.14.13

Photos by Maggie Boyd // Maggie Boyd Photography Ed. Note: One of the best damn things about having a young buck (doe?) like Maggie Boyd join in the growing ranks of the Pinpoint Army is that we, editors get to learn about all manner of acts and arts we missed...

Sparks @ The Fonda – 11-11-13

Sparks @ The Fonda – 11-11-13

Photos by Michelle Shiers // Michelle Shiers Photography Ed. Note: Four decades in the making Sparks continue to be innovators. Brothers Ron and Russell Mael always seem to be just beyond their peers. As the rest of us are just discovering a genre Sparks is putting a neat little bow on their...

Those Darlins @ The Echo – 11.7.13

Those Darlins @ The Echo – 11.7.13

Ed. Note: Rumor has it that the ragged band of Nashville unfuckwithables we call Those Darlins have mellowed slightly in the years and days since their eponymous debut turned our office into a frothing twang of lolling rapscallions but nuts to that. The girls and boys that make the band...

WIN! Dallas Buyers Club OST, Focus Features Blu-ray Set

It’s Monday morning crawling up from the wreckage of another weekend forgiven to excess and what better way to celebrate the awkward shift back into “humane” functionality than with a CHOICE giveaway from Focus Features? Exactly. Today we are proud as peaches to present a contest wherein you (YES, YOU!)...
