The Heavy do Coney

BY Laurie in General

  Summer is certainly here, which means the music festival season is upon us.  If merely thinking about these all-day events makes your ears ring, feet sore, and eyelids sag, you aren't alone.  Still, all music fans can agree that there are a few can't-miss fests that are worth enduring. The music fest at the top of my to-do list is  coming up this Friday and Saturday in Berea, Ohio, a suburb of Cleveland.  Now in its fourth year, Berea Fest features every genre from acoustic folk-punk sing-a-longs to the grinding sounds of thrashcore.

Girl Band BBQ!

Mamma Mia!

BY Lisa in Music

    I'm a sucker for cool gals playing that good ol' indie folk rock so Mia Riddle's album, Tumble and Drag, gets a lotta play on my iTunes. Check her music out and if you're in NY, catch her and her band tomorrow night at one of my favorite Brooklyn venues, the Bell House. And if good jams weren't enough to bring you out, they'll be serving free Brooklyn lager from 7:30 - 8:30. Read More
I just ran across this while looking for summer songs. I know there is a bit of MJ overkill going on but this seriously gave me chills. Man, he could really belt it. It's the acapella version so there are some silent breaks but wait them out. Seriously, whoa. Read More

Two White Horses

BY Sarah J. in Music

Who doesn't love Fridays, right? And what better way to end the week than checking out a new band? In this case, it was Two White Horses at the Mercury Lounge, perfect for unwinding after a long work week. Read More
I don't know about any of you peeps, but I love the Fleet Foxes. Their self-titled album and Sun Giant EP are both great, plus they are fantastic live. If you haven't had the chance to see them, you totally should. They're playing at All Points West in about a month (along with Vampire Weekend, Ra Ra Riot and the Beastie Boys), plus a whole host of other tour dates including Chicago, Philly, DC and Toronto. If you get the chance you should definitely check them out in concert. Read More
