    Summer Swoon - Proudly independent, recent Grammy nominees Silversun Pickups aren't ready to hit the "Panic Switch."

    Since releasing a rhapsodic, fuzz-laden debut, Carnavas, in 2006, the Los Angeles-based Silversun Pickups have assiduously chiseled a name for themselves in modern rock's pantheon. Carnavas's hissing kickback set against lead singer Brian Aubert's b...

    They Might Be Giants - D&W Lounge takes the East End's sudden trendiness in working-class stride.

    The East End's D&W Lounge (911 Milby) looks like it's an awful, tedious, dreadful spot for nightlife. It's an unattractive building on an unattractive road in a part of town that, despite whispers it's becoming the "new Heights," is still pretty unat...

    The Mother Truckers

    You know the old saying "a little bit country, a little bit rock and roll?" Austin's Mother Truckers are more like a whole lot of country, a shit-ton of rock and roll, but the two halves of that soon-to-be clich aren't mutually exclusive. Sure, the ...

    Scumbag Karaoke

    Friday nights at this two-story West Gray watering hole, the upstairs space turns into the most drunken and debauched karaoke party of the evening, if not the week. Lone Stars are sold by the bucket and the bar slings out cheap mixed drinks to coax e...

    Toadies

    With 1995's Rubberneck, the Toadies became radio mainstays across the country and hard-rock icons at home in North Texas. But somehow they couldn't keep the attention of label Interscope Records. As was the plan, the band went into the studio, sure ...

    Fleshtones

    Almost 35 years since starting out in the wilds of Queens and soon after landing on the wild stage of CBGB, the Fleshtones are still out in the garage thrashing out raw, perhaps surprisingly vital rock and roll ensnared in a serious time warp. The Fl...

    Weird Al Yankovic

    If you dig around on YouTube long enough, you'll find footage of Weird Al Yankovic's first-ever television appearance on NBC's Tomorrow with Tom Snyder back in 1981. It's a strangely harrowing version of "Another One Rides the Bus" done solely on acc...
