Some Strokes, Black Keys, Johnny Depp, Ke$ha & More Pay Tribute To Tom Petty @ El Rey, Los Angeles 11/14/12

“This is a lot of Alpha energy to wrangle,” Guster’s Ryan Miller said in testament to Alex Levy and the Cabin Down Below Band’s work last night. “This is a hard thing to organize.” And that’s probably true of most every tribute concert of this nature, as it has probably been true of the decade… More »

New Little Joy Video – “Next Time Around”

Little Joy might not be the most exciting band in the world, but this video for “Next Time Around” does have at least one thing going for it: It’s not nearly as annoying as Fab, Devendra, and Greg Rogove’s Megapuss (aka the strokes). It’s the first single from Little Joy’s self-titled debut. Thunderbird directed. Thunderbird. More »
