Shut Up, Dude: This Week’s Best And Worst Comments

By Scott Lapatine / May 31, 2014
This week's Shut Up, Dude comes a little later than usual, but I have a good excuse. I'm at Napa Valley's BottleRock ("The strangest festival lineup of 2014?" -Stereogum) to find out what happens when bands like Thee Oh Sees, Deerhunter, and No Age are booked at the same event as Gin Blossom, Spi… More »

Sorry for the delay on this, guys. It's like 3AM here. Really epic night, though. Lana did three songs and the escargot is like, the G.O.A.T. escargot. My table is me, Bret Easton Ellis, Andre Leon Tally, Jodorowsky, Ellen, Lil Terio, Rick Rubin, the CEO of Adidas, NeNe Leakes, and Rob Kardashian. I'm… More »

This week the Black Keys and Lily Allen were in NYC to promote their latest albums. Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney stopped by SNL, Letterman, and Colbert, and might end up with next week's #1 album for their trouble, if they can keep that "bullshitXscape from the top. CornettoMore »

I walked by Barclays Center earlier tonight and saw some kids outside with lint rollers. Take that, Canada! Not that I don't appreciate the levity; it was a rough week.

There was a point during last night's minimally audacious Rock & Roll ceremony -- maybe halfway through the E Street Band's interminable shoutouts -- when I remarked to the guy from Billboard that this was the opposite of Coachella. But boy did that Nirvana coda make the whole thing worthwhile. It was surreal and thrilling… More »

We started off this week with news from Ultra Music Festival, which sounded like a bit of a disaster. Hopefully vibes are more mellow at next weekend's Coachella (don't forget your Hydroxycut). Hot off his SNL debut, rising UK soul singer Sam Smith was the subject of The Week In Pop. More »

I bet you guys thought I was skipping Shut Up, Dude this week. I would never! Just because much of the music world has reconvened in Austin does not mean Stereogum's commenters shouldn't be celebrated and chastised in list format like normal. (Although, yes we skipped this week's 5 Best Songs/Videos countdowns. Weak week.) Of… More »
