By James Rettig / April 20, 2015 - 5:23 pm
Another Record Store Day has come and gone, and now we get to sit back and watch the lucky few who managed to snag exclusive releases turn them around on eBay for much more than they originally paid. We looked at auctions that had at least one bid -- meaning that they will more tha… More »

Faith No More's comeback tour is in full swing, and last night they made a stop at Portland's Keller Auditorium.

Some nights, there are just too many shows in Brooklyn. I'm not complaining! But it's a blessing and a curse -- obviously, it's great because you get to see so many awesome bands, but the downside is that you have to make some tough decisions. Imagine the agony you go through choosing between what artist… More »

The 9 Best Moments Of Coachella 2015 Sunday

By Tom Breihan / April 13, 2015 - 10:37 am
There were headliners on all three days of Coachella, as there are every year. But this year, there was really only one headliner, and that one headliner was Drake. People talked about that Drake show all weekend. People rapped Drake lyrics at each other every time there was a conversational lull, or asked strangers who… More »


The 8 Best Moments Of Coachella 2015 Saturday

By Tom Breihan / April 12, 2015 - 1:27 pm
If this year's Coachella had an off day, it was Saturday. Of the festival's three headliners, Saturday night top draw Jack White is probably the least exciting, though he's still an electric presence with a deep catalog. The festival's organizers seemed to sense this, booking White to play second-to-last on the big stage and throwing… More »


The 10 Best Moments Of Coachella 2015 Friday

By Tom Breihan / April 11, 2015 - 1:04 pm
There's every other festival in America, and then there's Coachella. Every year, it feels like it matters just a bit more than the others. It's the oldest, dating back to the final moments of the '90s, so its infrastructure is tight and its organizers know what they're doing. It's first, so all these bands are… More »

Last night, Tame Impala performed at the Fox Theatre in Pomona, California. The Australian psychedelic band will release their highly anticipated third full-length, Currents, later this year, and we've already heard the first two singles, "'Cause I'm A Man" and "Let It Happen," both of which made their live debut last night. You can watch… More »


Nick Cave, Courtney Love, Devendra Banhart, And A Million Others Paid Messy Tribute To Allen Ginsberg’s “Howl” In L.A.

By Molly Bergen / April 8, 2015 - 11:13 am
It was an unusually wet evening in Los Angeles, and soggy Allen Ginsberg fans lined up outside the Theatre at the Ace Hotel to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the publication of Ginsberg's legendary poem, "Howl." They chatted excitedly about the show while glaring at the sky. Drought be damned, they were taking the sudde… More »


Karen O, Sky Ferreira, Duran Duran, And A Dozen More Artists Paid Tribute To David Lynch (And Die Antwoord Heckled The Whole Time)

By Molly Bergen / April 2, 2015 - 11:05 am
Amongst the shabby, shuttered vaudeville theaters that line Broadway in Los Angeles, the Theatre at Ace Hotel burns bright. A line stretched from the theater doors all the way down the street, with fans dressed to the nines waiting to get in. The event? The Music Of David Lynch, a concert at which a galaxy… More »

The two-day fest featured appearances from bands like Together PANGEA, Fidlar, La Luz, Gang Of Four, Public Access T.V. and many, many more.

H&M’s Coachella Clothing Line Is Here

By James Rettig / March 24, 2015 - 10:32 am
Earlier this year, we found out that Coachella and H&M would be extending their long-time partnership with a new venture: H&M Loves Coachella, a clothing line inspired by the California music festival. Coachella has become a place where aspiring fashionistas can trot out unique new looks, so it only makes sense that a massive chai… More »

SXSW 2015 has come and gone. As Scott noted over the weekend, it was an altogether less corporate, less celebrity-infused, less insane experience than in recent years, though of course it was still at least a little corporate and celebrity-infused and insane. (We never did make it to the McDonald's showcase, damn.) As much a… More »


Good Thing Makthaverskan Made It To SXSW Because They Were Awesome

By Gabriela Tully Claymore / March 23, 2015 - 11:55 am
After undergoing a series of unforeseeable visa issues that brought their long-awaited debut US tour to a standstill, Sweden's Makthaverskan finally made it to SXSW. The band appeared at venues all around Austin, but most of our staff caught them at Run For Cover's stacked showcase on Saturday night. More »


Mitski Silences The Rain At SXSW

By Gabriela Tully Claymore / March 23, 2015 - 10:57 am
SXSW is exhausting. If you throw yourself into it, by the end of the week your feet hurt, your ears are ringing, and you probably contracted a cold. But if it's tiring for industry people to be at SXSW, then being a musician at the week-long festival is downright hellish. You traipse from showcase to… More »


Shura Take Their Dancefloor Synthpop To Church At SXSW

By Caitlin White / March 21, 2015 - 2:30 pm
It's easy to get lost in Shura's '80s-channeling doe-eyed pop without realizing how sad the songs are. The British trio is fronted by Alexandra Denton -- who also writes most of their lyrics -- and it wasn't until I was sitting in a pew at Austin's Central Presbyterian Church that the undertow of brokenness really… More »

Yesterday, we threw a 14-hour unofficial SXSW showcase at Austin's Hole In The Wall alongside the Brooklyn-by-way-of-Boston label Exploding In Sound Records. Thirty-one bands played two stages, from established names like Speedy Ortiz, Alex G, JEFF The Brotherhood, and Pity Sex to breakthrough acts like Wand, Girlpool, Dirty Dishes, and Krill. New Orleans' Caddywhompus kicked… More »


Tobias Jesso Jr. Taught Piano Lessons At SXSW

By Chris DeVille / March 20, 2015 - 6:03 pm
Last week Tobias Jesso Jr. shared sheet music for "Just A Dream," the first song he ever wrote on piano. It was an unusual move for a modern musician, but it turns out there was good reason for it: For one of Tumblr's IRL events at SXSW Friday afternoon, Jesso taught a roomful of fa… More »
