March is the ultimate “blah” month when you spend half of your time cursing the end of winter, hoping desperately for those warm days to pop up sooner rather than later. But the end of the month promises brighter days-- and good times! If you’re looking for something cool to do once spring arrives, the self-described 90’s glam-punk group Voluptuous Horror of Karen Black is playing an all ages (!) show on March 31st at Santos Party ...

While some people might celebrate becoming octogenarians with lunch buffets at Charlie Brown’s Steakhouse, Yoko Ono has something a little different in mind. Ono will be celebrating her 80th birthday with a concert at the Volksbühne in Berlin on February 17th.
Ono will be backed by the Yoko Ono Plastic Ono Band, led by her son Sean Ono Lennon. The legendary performer has been as active as ever these past few years, with #1 hits on the Billboard ... Read More

It’s a sweltering summer day in New York City, pushing 100 degrees, when Paloma Faith and I decide to take a walk. Luckily, the 27-year-old British singer is, in her own way, dressed for it: she’s wearing a gorgeous two-piece sunsuit that’s straight out of the 1960s. She’s further armed with cat-eye sunglasses, a sky-high beehive, and her unique blend of smarts, sweetness, and grit. It’s her idea to do our interview out on the street. ... Read More

It’s not often that at a concert, the artist encourages you to take photos and film the performance, but that’s exactly what David Byrne did at his recent show in Brooklyn.
Though the Talking Heads frontman, who teamed up with St. Vincent for his latest release, Love This Giant, announced right before going on stage that he didn’t mind people using their phones to take a picture or two, he wasn’t interested in seeing any iPads waving ... Read More

K. Flay (aka Kristine Flaherty) has built a reputation not only as an up-and-coming independent hip-hop artist, but also as an unflappable interviewee. Before her show at Boston venue T.T. the Bear’s Place on July 11th, we had a chance to sit down with K. Flay to discuss Bay Area hip-hop, Gavin Rossdale, and to play an unusual game of “Would You Rather.”

Having never lived in the suburbs, I view them as extremely foreign yet undeniably romanticized. But unique visions of life in suburbia come alive in Ssion's latest music video, "Earthquake," which was filmed in Kansas City, the hometown of the band's lead singer Cody Critcheloe. If you haven’t yet had the pleasure of peeping a Ssion (pronounced shun) video or hearing one of their tunes, the best way I can think to describe them is as something between a ... Read More

Lady Gaga is known for her preposterous outfits (both on and off stage), her risqué dance moves, and her support of the LGBT community. Now the pop star will be known for being the first foreign artist to be denied a concert permit by the Indonesian authorities.
According to the Jakarta Post, authorities cancelled Lady Gaga’s June 3rd concert because various groups were afraid that the singer’s sessy dance moves and nearly nonexistent ... Read More
