    Drenched In Blog: Goin' Out West for ACL Fest

    So I've made the journey out west to discover celebrity gold in them here rolling hills of Austin. On the way here down Highway 71, I saw pretty little Jettas all in a row, with girlies rocking out to the new Rilo Kiley, smoking menthols. I lit a few...

    Calling All VJs. Calling All VJs.

    You think you're better than Kennedy? No, not the president, we're talking about the former MTV VJ with glasses and the annoying voice. (Is that reference too dated?) Anyway, MTV2 will be hosting a VJ search tomorrow at Warehouse Live. "We are on ...

    You Should've Been There: The Mathletes at the Proletariat

    Joe and his Mathletes (which includes all four Dimes) danced, jumped, joked and rocked their way through a set of original tunes and cover songs. Joe's style is like a combination of They Might Be Giants and Atom and His Package. His lyrics about abs...

    How (Not) to Name Your Band - The Adjective Nouns

    Ya know, there are worse things in the world than naming your band something annoying -- things like killing people, or donning a diaper and chasing some astronaut cross-country or, I dunno, literally getting away with murder, only to years later bu...

    Tuesday's Gone - An unexpected adventure starts at Late Nite Pie

    Tuesday is Nightfly's unofficial night off. The best service-industry nights are usually Mondays, while bars and clubs begin their descent into the weekend on Wednesdays. It's unwise to expect anything great out of a Tuesday night -- you might scam ...

    First with Austin skronk-punk legends Scratch Acid and then with Chicago's abrasively heavy Jesus Lizard, David Yow had the perfect voice to channel his bands' caustic noise. Pitched between a sneer and a scream, it emanated anger and contempt -- wh...

    Minus the Bear

    Even when he was branded a genuine danger to decent society by hysterical critics in the '70s, the man born Vincent Furnier always maintained that "Alice Cooper" was nothing more than an exaggerated horror-movie character he played. The fact that to...

    Bruce Springsteen, Magic - CD Review

    Let's be honest: The critical hosannas hailing Magic as Bruce Springsteen's "Return to Rock" are a bit much; it's only been five years since The Rising. Magic is a solid, often transcendent, effort closer in quality to Darkness on the Edge of Town t...
