If you’re looking to breakup with someone you don’t really want to talk to ever again, or want to upset your parents, CHILDBIRTH is the band for you. The crass-as-fuck trio hits on themes traditionally abandoned by the punk community, such as menopause and sister wifehood, and they're performing in Seattle on Monday.  I saw CHILDBIRTH during their summer tour at the Third Space Art Collective in Davis, CA, in a venue small enough to see the waxy texture of their token hospital gowns. So I was...
An Indian university erupted in protest early this week, following the failure of administrators to appropriately respond to a student’s report that she was molested during a campus event on Aug. 28.

But as someone who can’t even hear about The Ring without bursting out in tears, Elsa’s optical illusions bring me right up...
GWAR, the horrific metal band infamous for its blood and guts-stained performances, may have just made metal history. It now has a female frontwoman leading the band: Vulvatron!  If you've ever seen the band live you have probably been sprayed with fake blood, and if you're the squeamish type I wouldn't recommend Googling GWAR.
