Tegan & Sara @ Bowery Ballroom, NYC 11/19/12

Canadian sisters Tegan and Sara played to a sold out crowd at New York's Bowery Ballroom on Monday night.

The 10 Biggest Band Beefs Of 2011

Back in the day, when two artists didn't like each other, they'd deal with it in relatively low-profile ways: A snippy backstage comment, or a pointed interview comment. Maybe they'd toss in a lyrical jab, the way Lynyrd Skynyrd did toward Neil Young on "Sweet Home Alabama," but that would be just about it. That'… More »

Theophilus London & Sara Quin on Letterman

You might have already heard "Why Even Try," the slinky duet between Theophilus London and Tegan & Sara's Sara Quin. The pair visited Letterman last night to do the song live. I like the band's LVRS hats, a hat tip to London's new EP. Watch:… More »

Indie Rockers Eulogize The King Of Pop

It wouldn't be all that risky to say everyone of a certain age has a Michael Jackson moment. He was a cultural phenomenon on a much larger scale than almost anyone else making music today (in some circles he'd get a little competition from sometime singing mate Paul McCartney, but not really).

Stereogum’s Favorite Artists’ Favorite Things In 2008

We love year-end lists, it's really a shame that no one made any this month. To remedy that, we asked a handful of our favorite artists what music they dug most over the last twelve months.

Canadian Indie Rockers Tell You How To Live Your Life

Not generally. Generally they just shape our lives by being arty and so great to listen to while wearing our tight jeans and other stereotypical things of that nature.
