10 Bands Who Banned Photos In 2013

She & Him Are The Latest Act To Ban Camera Phones Via Patronizing Signage

Camera phones have been interfering with sight lines at concerts for years.

Debut Turns 20

At this point, Björk has been so esteemed for so long, and she's followed her own muse down so many rabbit holes, that she basically exists outside the context of circa-2013 music.
