The Unicorns Reunion @ The Forum, Inglewood 8/1/14

By Molly Bergen / August 2, 2014 - 1:00 pm

What does one hope for in a reunion show? For the band you loved to be fossilized and perfectly preserved at the time of its demise, like an ancient bug in amber for thousands of years? A perfect copy of what they were in their glory days? Or perhaps it is preferable to have a… More »

This past weekend brought the 2014 edition of the Newport Folk Festival. Headliners included Jenny Lewis, Jack White, Jeff Tweedy, and a very special appearance by Mavis Staples.

By Miles Bowe / July 21, 2014 - 11:16 am

This past weekend, Pitchfork Festival went down in Chicago, and it included a great deal of excellent acts. We sent our photographer Max Herman to capture some behind-the-scenes portraits of artists around the festival. Above you’ll find photos of DIIV, Deafheaven, Giorgio Moroder, and more. More »

By Miles Bowe / July 14, 2014 - 11:58 am

This past weekend, 4Knots Festival 2014 took place in its usual location at the South Street Seaport in NYC. It’s a great festival for a few reasons: The location is incredible; admission is free; it’s only one day so there’s not much of a time commitment; and it always manages to cram in a to… More »

By Miles Bowe / June 30, 2014 - 11:50 am

We finally got to hear some new Robyn songs, recorded at her performance in Hollywood last night. And this past Saturday, the singer (along with her buddies Röyksopp) stopped off in San Francisco for a large show at the Bill Graham Auditorium. We sent our photographer Moses Namkung to capture the performance, and you ca… More »

By Peter Helman / June 27, 2014 - 11:40 am

Timothy Showalter aka Strand Of Oaks just put out the powerful, cathartic HEAL, one of the best albums of 2014 so far (and we recently spoke with him about it). Last night he launched the tour for the album at NYC’s Mercury Lounge, and we sent wagz2it to document the show. Check out the photo… More »

By Miles Bowe / June 26, 2014 - 3:48 pm

Last night Beyoncé and Jay Z kicked off their On The Run Tour in Miami. The couple switched back and forth between their respective songs over the course of a sprawling 43-song performance. Check out some photos above and the epic setlist below. More »

By Miles Bowe / June 23, 2014 - 12:20 pm

This year, their original Veruca Salt lineup got back together. We already spoke to co-frontwomen Nina Gordon and Louise Post in their first joint interview in 17 years, and last night the band began what will be their first tour in just under two decades. Veruca Salt performed at the Mississippi Studios in Portland to… More »

By Miles Bowe / June 20, 2014 - 1:19 pm

The 2014 iteration of the Danish music festival NorthSide took place this past weekend and hosted a large number of exciting bands. There were the major rocks acts such as Arcade Fire, the Pixies, and the National, but there was a lot to be seen beyond that, too. There was Franz Ferdinand, Mount Kimbie, Roby… More »


The 10 Best Sets At Bonnaroo 2014

By Ryan Leas / June 16, 2014 - 2:07 pm

It has to be a toss-up between Coachella and Bonnaroo as to which is our most iconic currently active American festival. Growing up in Pennsylvania, I found the earlier years of Bonnaroo somewhat mythic — I had friends who would make summer trips down to the festival, and they talked about it like it wa… More »


How To Dress Well’s “What Is This Heart?” Had A Spectacular Live Debut

By Miles Bowe / June 12, 2014 - 11:33 am

Last night in New York City, Tom Krell debuted most of the songs from “What Is This Heart?”, the highly anticipated third album of his influential experimental R&B project How To Dress Well. Yet the most significant moment of the evening came from a throwback to one of the earliest songs of his career. Krell… More »


The 10 Best Sets At Governors Ball 2014

By Ryan Leas / June 9, 2014 - 12:40 pm

I recognize this is an issue of taste, but Governors Ball 2014 was a little bit of a mixed bag for me. There were two headliners I loved, and they conflicted, and I had no interest in the subsequent four on Saturday and Sunday. After being impressed and surprised repeatedly on Friday, I had a… More »


BottleRock 2014 Sunday: Thee Oh Sees And Deerhunter Deliver Strong Sets For Small Crowds

By Ryan Leas / June 2, 2014 - 1:59 pm

It’s not uncommon for a festival’s last day to be something of a comedown. It’s Sunday, and everyone’s sunburnt and hungover and staring down the barrel of a work week — the return to reality matched with the physical fatigue of having stood out in a field for three days. It takes a powerful and… More »


BottleRock 2014 Saturday: OutKast And Weezer Deliver The Hits, No Age Open For Smash Mouth

By Ryan Leas / June 1, 2014 - 3:38 pm

Every now and then, it’s good to reorient your perspective. At any given more established or mainstream festival stocked with your usual indie mainstays, No Age wouldn’t come across as too out there or jarring, but between BottleRock’s semi-bucolic surroundings, laidback tone and pace, and generally more rustic or easygoing lineup (the band was playing… More »


BottleRock 2014 Friday: TV On The Radio Debut Three Songs, The Cure Get Cut Off

By Ryan Leas / May 31, 2014 - 3:19 pm

The second year of Napa Valley’s BottleRock festival got off to a slow start yesterday, as a modest crowd milled around through some of the festival’s lesser known acts. By the time TV On The Radio started off the evening, however, a more sizable group of fans had gathered to see one of the Brookly… More »


Panda Bear @ Warsaw, Brooklyn 5/18/14

UPDATE: You can download a fan recording of the concert at two-sails. Here’s a sample:… More »


Lykke Li @ The Apollo, NYC 5/15/14

By Claire Lobenfeld / May 16, 2014 - 11:03 am

A “pathetic fallacy” occurs when, in a story, nature reacts to a human emotion: when everything is going wrong and a character says something like, “At least it’s not raining,” and then BAM! it rains. Lykke Li, the current queen of heartbreak, had the opposite effect on New York City last night. A rainy morning… More »


Photos: Lily Allen @ Highline Ballroom, NYC 5/15/14

By Miles Bowe / May 16, 2014 - 10:50 am

Last night Lily Allen played her first show in the United States since 2009. The controversy spawned by her new material didn’t stop her from selling out the Highline Ballroom in Manhattan, and being hospitalized for food poisoning didn’t keep her from delivering a strong performance. We sent our photographer Luis Ruiz out to capture… More »


Photos: Austin Psych Fest 2014

By Miles Bowe / May 5, 2014 - 4:33 pm

This past weekend Austin Psych Fest hosted a ton of great bands that generally would fall under the umbrella of being psychedelic. That is a gratefully wide definition which led to a varied and far-reaching lineup. Current psych masters like Panda Bear and of Montreal performed alongside old guards like the Zombies while stranger, more… More »


Photos: The Knife @ Terminal 5, NYC 5/1/14

By Miles Bowe / May 2, 2014 - 4:56 pm

After putting out one of the best albums of 2013 with the gargantuan Shaking The Habitual, the Knife have been touring an equally bombastic live show that finally came to New York this week. You can check out photos of last night’s dance-centric performance at Terminal 5 by photographer Erik Erikson above. And below you… More »
