Concert

Ariel Pink @ Baby’s All Right, Brooklyn 10/2/14

By Miles Bowe / October 3, 2014 - 3:58 pm

Last night — or more accurately very early this morning — Ariel Pink performed the live debut of his upcoming double album pom pom. It was an exciting night, not just because of how good the album is, but because you never really know what to expect with this guy. The Ariel Pink on recording… More »

By Miles Bowe / September 29, 2014 - 2:14 pm

It’s just about the end of festival season, but Portland gave us one more this past weekend: Project Pabst, the Milwaukee beer company’s music festival. The festival brought together Modest Mouse, Built To Spill, GZA, Speedy Ortiz, and more. It also included some local heroes such as Shabazz Palaces and Red Fang. We sent photographer… More »

Merchandise just released their new album, After The End, which we’ve covered in depth, and now they’re out on tour. The band stopped by the Echoplex in Los Angeles this past weekend, and we sent photographer Jasper Bernbaum to capture it. Check out photos of that in the gallery above. More »

By Miles Bowe / September 23, 2014 - 11:39 am

Riot Fest has grown into a gigantic music festival that occurs in three different iterations throughout the year. For the Denver edition this past weekend, the lineup featured bands from all over the spectrum: Weezer, Rise Against!, The Flaming Lips, TV On The Radio, Wu-Tang Clan, and a whole lot more. We sent our photographer… More »

The New Pornographers are back with Brill Bruisers and last night they played a special performance in Manhattan’s iconic Brill Building, just a few blocks from where they rocked Letterman on Wednesday.

Wilco @ LC Pavilion, Columbus 9/3/14

By Chris DeVille / September 4, 2014 - 4:32 pm

“We haven’t played in about a year,” Jeff Tweedy smirked, “so you guys are getting us fresh.” It’s true; the concert Wednesday in Columbus was Wilco’s first of 2014, and at first it felt like a dusting off. They began with a batch of their oldest tunes — “Misunderstood,” “Forget The Flowers,” and “Passenger Side”… More »

By Miles Bowe / September 3, 2014 - 12:30 pm

Earlier this summer, Interpol announced their fifth album, El Pintor, and began dropping singles including the opener “All The Rage Back Home” and “Ancient Ways.” They sounded like the Interpol we’ve always known preceding an album that stuck to what they’ve always done, something Chris examined in depth in his recent review. Last night the… More »


Made In America Philadelphia In Words & Photos

By Ryan Leas / September 2, 2014 - 3:47 pm

Made In America has always struck me as an odd festival. In these still early years for the event, it’s a somewhat small entity. Two days as opposed to others’ four or five, or others’ double weekends; four stages in somewhat close quarters on a shut-down Benjamin Franklin Parkway; a lineup of a size where,… More »


Stereogum’s 9 Favorite Sets From FYF Fest 2014

By Miles Bowe / August 25, 2014 - 2:32 pm

Los Angeles’ FYF Fest was one of the more stylistically diverse festivals of the year. Its lineup blended major headliners (Phoenix, the Strokes, HAIM) with some of the best electronic musicians in the world (Flying Lotus, Todd Terje, Four Tet), and managed to throw in some choice heavier stuff (Boris, Deafheaven), hip-hop (Earl Sweatshirt, Ru… More »


Report & Photos From Ceremonia 2014

By T. Cole Rachel / August 21, 2014 - 2:23 pm

Staged in Toluca, nearly an hour outside Mexico City, the Ceremonia festival takes over the grounds of an enormous go-cart track, which not only provides a fairly panoramic mountaintop view but goes a long way toward making you feel like you are exactly in the middle of nowhere. This is the only festival I’ve ever… More »


Blood, Sweat, Tears: Scenes From GWAR B-Q 2014

By Tom Breihan / August 18, 2014 - 2:39 pm

On Friday evening, Oderus Urungus burned. Dave Brockie, the Gwar founder who played the Oderus character for 32 years, was laid to rest soon after he died this past spring, the victim of his own heroin addiction. But one funeral wasn’t enough. And Oderus, the once-frozen alien overlord who led his band of scumdogs o… More »

By Miles Bowe / August 18, 2014 - 1:20 pm

This past weekend brought the Pioneertown edition of the Woodsist Festival, now in its second year. The label delivered several bands to the Southern California desert location, including Foxygen, Cass McCombs, the Fresh And Onlys, Peaking Lights, and (of course) Woods. We sent photographer Jasper Bernbaum to capture the event, and you can take a… More »

By Miles Bowe / August 13, 2014 - 5:43 pm

Øyafestivalen has now entered its 13th year, and last week, the Norwegian festival’s 2014 iteration filled Oslo with excellent artists. There were folk musicians like Angel Olsen and Bill Callahan alongside electronic artists like Todd Terje and Darkside alongside major headlining acts like Outkast, Robyn, and Queens Of The Stone Age. We sent photographer ClintMore »

See our photographer Wilson Lee’s live photos above and check out… More »


Stereogum’s 14 Favorite Sets At Outside Lands 2014

By Chris DeVille / August 12, 2014 - 3:36 pm

Nearly 200 years ago, back when the shoreline dunes of San Francisco were considered uninhabitable, they came to be known as the Outside Lands — terrain fit only for the bravest pioneers. These days that territory is a lot more comfortable: Among other landmarks, it’s become home to Golden Gate Park, an oasis of urba… More »


Mikal Cronin Takes Requests, Debuts Solo “Better Man” At Stereogum #Soundwave At Outside Lands

By Miles Bowe / August 11, 2014 - 12:32 pm

The charm of the first hour or so of the first day of a music festival often comes from the fact that no matter what plan or itinerary or schedule you make on some helpful “official app,” you will almost immediately forget all of that and experience complete stupefying shellshock. It’s nice, though, because it… More »


FKA Twigs @ Webster Hall, NYC 8/6/14

By James Rettig / August 7, 2014 - 11:44 am

To dance properly to FKA Twigs, you need to hunch, to pull your shoulders inward until you collapse into yourself. As a former professional video girl, I can’t imagine Tahliah Barnett didn’t think about how people would move to her music, so I can only venture to guess that this was her intention. Back arched,… More »

By Stereogum / August 4, 2014 - 3:49 pm

This past weekend, the 2014 Pickathon Music Festival was held, as always, at the Pendarvis Farm in Happy Valley, Oregon, just outside Portland. Major draws this year included the War On Drugs, Mac DeMarco, X, and People Under The Stairs. We sent photographer Colin McLaughlin to document the festival in pictures. Check out what he… More »
