I know, I know, it's Twilight, and Bella Swan is probably the most anti-feminist character in the history of 'literature,' but this soundtrack is GOOD! The last one was laughably terrible and full of your standard Hot Topic fare: Paramore, Linkin Park, and a mid-90s-esque ballad from R-Patz himself. But this one's got original tunes from the likes of Thom Yorke, Lykke Li, and Bon Iver and St. Vincent. I know, right? My personal favorite is 'Slow Life' by Grizzly ... Read More

Sufjan Stevens played his second show at the Bowery Ballroom on October 5th as part of a small tour he is performing to workshop some new songs. Opening band Cryptacize got the sold-out show warmed up with pretty song stylings and herky jerky dance moves provided by lead singer Nedelle Torrisi. Nedelle also took the stage for background vocal duties during the entirety of Sufjan's set.
The start of the evening was a bit rough due to a confusing mush of lines ... Read More

Cute? Yes. That's obvious. But the best word to describe Slingshot Dakota goes deeper than what's on the surface: it's passionate. Passionate about doing what they love. Passionate about supporting their friends. Passionate about making a difference. Get the idea?
Sure, Slingshot can easily hook you in with their poppy tunes and adorableness. But there's so much more behind the blast of sound created by an amped up Yamaha keyboard, a deafeningly loud drum set, ... Read More

Gabba Gabba Hey! Guess what? It's The Ramones Museum in Berlin's first Birthday! A celebration is definitely in order, cause it's the only museum in the world dedicated to our favorite ripped-blue-jeans clad punk rockers.
Museum founder Flo Hayler collected Ramones memorabilia for over 18 years, spending his hard earned euros on everything from original copies of famous photographs to a pair of Johnny's Levis. That is, until his girlfriend ... Read More

Who would you rather hang out with?
While I am the last person in the world to have anything good to say about pop music, radio songs, or whatever it is you want to call it, after watching Gag's and Madge goofing around on SNL , I started thinking about the old and the new, and tho I've never been a fan of their music, you've gotta hand it to these ladies for making BIG strides in the business on their own merit.
I started compiling my lists of the pros and ... Read More
