    One of the hottest topics in Americana these days is the sizzling Cajun roots-music scene three hours east in Lafayette. As good as young bands like the Red Stick Ramblers, the Lost Bayou Ramblers and the Pineleaf Boys are, they owe a huge debt to B...

    Bring Me the Horizon

    Man, young people today are morbid. Take British five-piece Bring Me the Horizon, whose new album is called Suicide Season and features images of a girl clasping a knot of internal organs and the band dripping blood from their frowning, sneering mou...

    Dave Alvin

    Dave Alvin has been one of the enduring pillars of American roots music for the past 30 years. One reason the seasoned Californian remains evergreen is his knack for reinvention and reinterpretation; Alvin never lets his massive catalog or his stage...

    Whether you were born with a tail or a pair of angel wings -- or neither -- the Supersuckers' fire-and-brimstone rock and roll circus is guaranteed to get your blood up. From early punk blasts like 1994 Sub Pop classic La Mano Cornuda (translated: T...

    AC/DC: Black Ice

    AC/DC's first disc in eight years, the 15-song Black Ice, is also the longest in the Australians' 33-year career. Rip out much of its lazy middle third, and it starts approaching For Those About to Rock levels of goodness. Which means that if you, u...

    Eric Taylor: Hollywood Pocketknife

    There's a great story about Eric Taylor being intoxicated at a party a few years back when one of our local folkies was expounding ad infinitum about "being on the road." The guy went on and on until, according to my sources, Taylor finally had enou...

    Bloc Party: Intimacy

    Transitioning from overhyped buzz generator to perpetual powerhouse ain't easy, even for figures as charismatic as the Bloc Party men; the strain shows on the Brits' third LP. "Ares" is the sound of a band trying too hard, albeit with assists from s...

    Led Zeppelin Pulls a Van Hagar

    As Gomer Pyle used to say, well surprahs, surprahs, suprahs. Billboard and several other news outlets reported yesterday that Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and Jason Bonham (son of John) will tour next summer as Led Zeppelin, which was pretty much gu...

    Aftermath: Alkaline Trio and Thrice at House of Blues

    It's troubling why I don't enjoy Alkaline Trio's newer albums. Everything through Good Mourning is lovely, but the last two not so much. But why not? The band hasn't changed. Its two original songwriters, Matt Skiba and Dan Andriano, are still behi...

    Aftermath: Tina Turner at Toyota Center

    Halloween Video Week Pt. 2: Welcome to Alice Cooper's Nightmare, Muppets

    They let this kind of stuff on television back in the day? I mean, this was filmed in 1978. At this point, wasn't Alice Cooper still a degenerate cross-dressing rock star who put his wang in a donut? And it's on a children's show with puppe...
