    Tonight: Boxmasters at Scout Bar, Part 1

    Yung Chill: Stop Talking and Listen

    Any time we got into trouble as a kid, we called our Uncle Rick. If the bully up the street took our bike, he got it back. If the schmuck bus driver made fun of our sweet rat-tail, Rick made him apologize. He was like a large, ill-tempered, sporadic...

    Xiu Xiu

    While major-label bands can always look forward to the career-spanning greatest-hits cash-in, bands that labor in the upper limits of indie-dom have their own brass ring to reach for: the remix album. Emo/art-rock band Xiu Xiu was so honored with l...

    Wale Introduces Seinfeld to Hip-Hop Culture - Yada Yada Rap

    It's not every day a rapper pays tribute to his favorite sitcom with an entire mixtape devoted to the show. Isn't that honor usually reserved for movies like Scarface or American Gangster? It's even more unusual when said rapper's favorite sitcom is ...

    Ex-Gangster Cantina Turned Heights Wine Bar Boom Boom Room - Out Go the Lights

    "Fuck you." We've just asked Heights resident Bill Curtin for a quote about why he likes coming to Boom Boom Room (2518 Yale), the neighborhood's quaint, two-year-old wine bar. "Fuck you and the goat you rode in on," he elaborates. "That's my q...

    Nas: Untitled

    On Untitled, Nas is clearly hoping that, by name-dropping big issues (reparations, single motherhood, media control) and dazzling you with his acrobatic flow ("I'm over they heads / Like a bulimic on a see-saw"), you'll gloss over the fact that he's...
