Queens Of The Stone Age celebrated the last show of their ...Like Clockwork tour with a Halloween extravaganza. The event -- called "The End Of The Road" -- took place in Los Angeles last night. The Kills served as the opener and there was also a performance from SuicideGirls, a haunted house, and a costume… More »


Photos/Videos: The Allman Brothers’ Last Concert @ Beacon Theatre, NYC 10/28/14

By Miles Bowe / October 29, 2014 - 12:19 pm
The Allman Brothers Band have called it quits after four-plus decades making music. They performed their final shows at the Beacon Theatre in New York City, but saved last night for a big finish. The band played three sets and two encores, which amounted to just under four hours of music. Above you can find… More »


Led Zeppelin Albums From Worst To Best

By Ryan Leas / October 29, 2014 - 12:11 pm
Led Zeppelin is a formative experience. They're the kind of band you discover early on, that kicks open the door to a whole bunch of other things. It's hard to separate those experiences, eventually. I can't tell you the last time I listened to Nevermind or Appetite For Destruction the whole way through, and for… More »


CMJ Photos: DJ Dodger Stadium, Blue Hawaii, Adult Jazz @ Brooklyn Bowl, Brooklyn 10/25/14

By Miles Bowe / October 27, 2014 - 3:57 pm
Brooklyn Bowl's Saturday CMJ showcase was a stacked lineup of exciting bands. The biggest name was DJ Dodger Stadium, who released the fantastic album Friend Of Mine earlier this year. As Tom explained in his review, that album worked as dance music, but also hit with a strong emotional quality. The entire showcase carried that… More »


Run The Jewels Announce Global Graffiti Project, Rough Trade NYC In-Store

By Chris DeVille / October 27, 2014 - 12:39 pm
Run The Jewels is nothing if not an example of how old-school foundational hip-hop can adapt for the future without compromising its essence. So it makes sense that in addition to the duo's MC-and-DJ-based musical onslaught, they've commissioned a worldwide graffiti project called Tag The Jewels. More than 30 artists across six continents were invited… More »

By Peter Helman / October 27, 2014 - 11:58 am
Orange County's eclectic Beach Goth festival, organized by surf-rock weirdos the Growlers, returned for its third year on Saturday. The fest included a diverse lineup, some wandering Oompa Loompas, and -- for some reason -- an incredibly awkward Pauly Shore on hosting duty, who somehow managed to piss off Alice Glass enough that she reportedly… More »

Perfume Genius played Portland's Mississippi Studios on Friday night, and our photographer Colin McLaughlin was there to capture it. Mike Hadreas gave a characteristically great performance -- his setlist was geared mostly towards songs from his fantastic new album, Too Bright, but he also dipped into his back catalog as well. Matteah Baim opened. Check… More »


CMJ: Girlpool, Jawbreaker Reunion, Amanda X, Bent Shapes, & More @ Silent Barn, Brooklyn 10/24/14

By James Rettig / October 26, 2014 - 3:37 pm
If I didn't know any better, I'd say that the lineup for the Miscreant & Father/Daughter CMJ showcase was tailor-made for me. Pretty much every artist on the bill has been in my high rotation all year, so I was insanely excited to see everyone live, most of them for the first time. The lineu… More »


CMJ: Blue Hawaii, Ballet School, Lydia Ainsworth @ Glasslands, Brooklyn 10/24/14

By Ryan Leas / October 25, 2014 - 3:22 pm
Ever since we named Lydia Ainsworth's dual EP debut Right From Real Stereogum's Album Of The Week almost a month ago, I've been hooked on it. Going into last night's PopGun showcase at the not-long-for-this-world Glasslands, Ainsworth's presence was the main hook for me. And, well, unfortunately I ran late and only caught the last… More »


Check Out Revealing Zoomed-Out Views Of Classic Album Covers

By Michael Nelson / October 24, 2014 - 5:40 pm
In this era of Instagram, we all know just how easy it is to crop the hell out of a picture to remove from the fringes all unwanted detritus (i.e., our friends) and maximize the attractiveness of the image's primary subject (i.e., ourself). But back in the day you needed a degree in graphic desig… More »


CMJ: Twin Peaks, Happyness, Nai Harvest @ Rough Trade, Brooklyn 10/23/14

By Ryan Leas / October 24, 2014 - 1:11 pm
Yesterday was a disgusting day in New York, and this is coming from someone whose favorite season is winter: wet coldness due to the obnoxiously persistent rain, and a particularly bone-cutting kind of wind (especially if you were, like me, near the East River). Given that, spending the day indoors, at an afternoon showcase at… More »


CMJ: Ryn Weaver @ Bowery Ballroom, NYC 10/22/14

By Ryan Leas / October 23, 2014 - 1:40 pm
Chances are, if you read this site or anything about music on the internet, you heard about Ryn Weaver this summer. Back in June, Weaver appeared, seemingly apropos of nothing, on SoundCloud with "OctaHate," a song that garnered considerable buzz because A) it's a really great, infectious song, and B) the murderer's row of people… More »


Trash Talk Get Their Own Converse

By Miles Bowe / October 22, 2014 - 2:58 pm
Converse has a history of getting bands to design custom sneakers, from Metallica to Big Boi to Pink Floyd (check out our official band sneaker guide for way more). Now, Trash Talk are getting their own official Converse design, and the kicks are inspired by the LP released by the band earlier this year, NoMore »

By Miles Bowe / October 22, 2014 - 12:43 pm
Jessie Ware has made major pop music strides with her second album, Tough Love, but it pays off, as Tom explained in his review when he called it "an example of how hard this soft-pop can kick you in the gut when it’s done just right." Last night, Ware played her album-release show in Sa… More »

By Miles Bowe / October 16, 2014 - 12:39 pm
Alt-J released their anticipated second album, This Is All Yours, to an army of eager fans last month. Since then, the Leeds-based psych-rock band began a North American tour that included a stop at the Paramount Theatre in Seattle last night. We sent photographer Eric Tra to capture the event. Check out the photo gallery… More »


Cheap Girls, Beach Slang, Chumped @ Saint Vitus, Brooklyn 10/14/14

By James Rettig / October 15, 2014 - 9:48 pm
Midwestern rockers Cheap Girls kicked off their tour last night at Greenpoint's Saint Vitus along with Beach Slang, Signals Midwest, and Lee Corey Oswald. Brooklyn-based Chumped kicked off the night with a short but sweet set that included their recent tracks "Hot 97 Summer Jam" and "Songs About Boats." Later, Beach Slang played songs from… More »


Rave Of Thrones: A Night With DJ Hodor At House B.B. King

By Ryan Leas / October 13, 2014 - 3:04 pm
There are few things that would convince me it's a good idea to go to Times Square on a Friday night. Let alone the Friday preceding what is, for some people, a long weekend; the area seemed extra clogged with drunken tourists this past Friday. And, hey, that's good for them, it's just not where… More »


Aphex Twin Albums From Worst To Best

By Patric Fallon / October 10, 2014 - 9:42 am
As any dyed-in-the-wool Aphex Twin fan worth their weight in trivia answers will tell you, there's really no such thing as a bad album written by Richard D. James. Sure, some are better than others, and there are probably some you don't even like that much. But a bad record from modern electronic music's preeminent… More »


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 »
