Paper Route – Bootleg – 10-28

Paper Route – Bootleg – 10-28

Photos by Madelynn Elyse Like every LA story, this one begins in traffic.  What was supposed to be a quick, mad dash to the Bootleg Theater had turned into a trudging crawl across dimly-lit backroads.  Swear and honk as I might, there was just no escaping the flickering of red...

Anberlin @ House of Blues (Dallas) – 10.24.14

Photos by Sean Berry Photography Ed. Note: It is the end of an era for a band that meant so much to so many. From their earnest young beginnings on the often misjudged but damn bold Tooth & Nail (faith being a curious and oft cursed thing) through their major...

WATCH! Dope Body Celebrate Trampolines, Neck Tattoos and Violence in “Repo Man”

WATCH! Dope Body Celebrate Trampolines, Neck Tattoos and Violence in “Repo Man”

Baltimore is fucking hardcore, man. Don’t let the technicolor Wham! City charm artists fool you. We’re talking serious urban decaying outlaw sprawl weirdos to bucolic burning death trip backyard bar burning freakout. It’s one of the only cities that I’ve ever feared by night and it’s the home to the...

Vance Joy / Jaymes Young @ Emo’s – 10.18.14

Ed. Note: “Riptide,” man. Riptide. You know you’ve got the chops to make the masses melt when Taylor Swift’s copping your jam on the BBC and even Charles has to pause from usual elan-popping snarl to consider that, perhaps, the uke’s a valuable instrument yet. But the man’s not just...

Ticket Giveaway! White Denim @ The Fonda – 10/21

Ticket Giveaway! White Denim @ The Fonda – 10/21

We knew psychedelics could hit hard but unless you’ve seen White Denim live you don’t the half of it. “But Pinpoint” , you say, “I woke up in Peru with 3 weeks unaccounted for when a Shaman dosed me with local strength ayahuasca”. Psssh, did you see a light so brilliant that it still...

Modern Sky Festival – Footnotes and Photos

I didn’t do cocaine last night. So what, right? I mean, most people didn’t do cocaine last night but most people weren’t swigging Buds for hours with their spirit animal talking art and commerce and the fashionable premise of the seeking abyss while a respectable anthill of prime grade shit...

The Thurston Moore Band – The Constellation Room – 10-11-14

Words by Michael Long // Photos by Ben Irwin Ben and I decided to go see The Thurston Moore Band in Santa Ana, California on Saturday night.  After an hour of maneuvering through several freeway interchanges and slinking through an ocean of mini-malls and countless fast food eateries, our GPS...

Imelda May – The Fillmore – 10-9-14

Photos by Misty Dawn My alter ego is a Betty Paige type pinup girl with bright red lips and sky-high heels, so I love it when I see a gal living this vision as her every day life. Imelda May is a classic soul with a haunting voice drawn from...

Broken Bells / Phantogram @ Gilley’s Dallas – 10.7.14

Ed. Note: In this world gone mad with muck and malfeasance, terror and cynicism, the grandiosity of grave displeasure, it’s important to sit back, now and then, and let pop genius crash in and wash away all the unoriginal sin. Seriously. You deserve it. Wet whispers and the cool, cool...

Escape Music Festival – Day 2 (Preview)

So I just learned these Escapist gigs will be running to midnight at a location further from my house then friggin’ Philadelphia (sorta, I get confused). This is a brutal proposition for a man who has to dig ditches come Monday morning but let’s hope I’ve got enough B12 to...

The War on Drugs – Cass Mccombs – The Fonda 10-2-14

The War on Drugs Cass McCombs It’s funny how the exact same words coming out of different mouths can mean completely different things. I’m not particularly proud of it but admittedly when it comes to music I listen to I have a swelled sense of entitlement that can make me...

Escape Music Festival – Day 1 (Preview)

Okay. Okay. So y’all know I can’t dance worth a damn unless I’m shitcanned and someone cuts loose with the twerk BOOM! of the Queen Diva praise but I’d like to think that I can appreciate a boogie to the rhythm and beat or epileptic soundscape swing and I certainly...
