I’m a sucker for catchy bands fronted by badass ladies, so when I heard CHVRCHES was going to be headlining Brooklyn’s Northside Festival, naturally I had to be there… Along with every other New Yorker. The free, sold-out show took place in Williamsburg, on the edge of McCarren Park. Booked as a “rain or shine”
After a sleepless 24 hours of musical challenges, Fancy Reagan was announced as the winner of VH1’s “Make A Band Famous” competition. Held at the Liberty Warehouse in Red Hook, Brooklyn, the event featured 24 bands competing for one life-changing grand prize: a record deal with Republic Records, exposure on VH1’s “You Oughta Know” program,
Last night’s audience at the Nikon at Jones Beach Theater kicked off their summer with a beautiful night under the moon as they were serenaded by the incredibly talented Jack Johnson, the king of surf-infused folk rock. Johnson, being the kind of performer you respect for his wholesome morals and philanthropic habits, had Amos Lee
Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds’ talent took flight last night before an intimate, 200+ crowd at the Bowery Ballroom in Manhattan. The lower east side venue played the perfect host, leading concertgoers through a mellow lounge space before reaching the main stage.

Saturday night, the 90s were resurrected in decadent fashion as the Goo Goo Dolls and Matchbox Twenty brought their summer co-headlining tour to Atlanta’s Lakewood Amphitheatre.
Mayhem descended on Atlanta’s Aaron’s Amphitheatre Tuesday afternoon. The traveling metal festival has become something of a fixture on Atlanta’s summer calendar scene since its inaugural visit in 2008. Last year, they packed the bill with the likes of Slipknot, Slayer, Motorhead and Anthrax, making this year’s lineup a bit of a step down. Rob
I’ve had Tame Impala’s show at the Tabernacle dog eared on my calendar for quite some time. Their latest album Lonerism sits right alongside Frank Ocean’s Channel Orange and Dawe’s Nothing is Wrong as my addiction discs for the first half of 2013. Lonerism is a beautiful and ambitious effort, employing psychedelic rock that seems
All good things must come to an end. We are closing out our final day at CMA Music Festival on a sizable down note. We were supposed to be treated to full sets by Carrie Underwood, Brad Paisley, The Band Perry and Jake Owen tonight, but we got two song sets with a side of
The CMA Music Festival may look like a musical fanfare, but it’s actually a mad scavenger hunt to try to piece together which surprise artists will find their way to the LP Field stage each night. Already this weekend we’ve seen impromptu performances from Tim McGraw, Kid Rock, Sheryl Crow, Kenny Rogers and Jason Mraz.
