A powerful riot grrrl combination is brewing and by the time they hit the road this spring, stages across the country are likely to explode. Hip-hop artist (and one of our fav girls) Lizzo will be  joining Sleater-Kinney for the first leg of their spring tour officially starting in February. Read More
This past Monday at Terminal 5 in New York City, Alanis sang some new songs, some old songs, and most surprisingly, her beloved secret song! In case you don’t know about the secret song, it’s at the very very end of her first and most popular album, Jagged Little Pill. There are a few seconds of silence, and then all of a sudden, without any introduction, explanation, or track number, the heartbreaking final song begins—a cappella style. Check out the performance below. Note her adorable slip-up right before the second verse. Read More
Choosing to see Fiona Apple live is definitely a gamble. On a bad night she might rant about her recent drug arrest in Texas or she might decide to hide under her piano or she might just decide to cut things short completely. But on a good night--and Tuesday night at Terminal 5 in New York City was a very good night-- Apple proved why she’s worth shelling out a few bucks for.   From the moment she sang the first words of “Fast As You Can” Apple was in full control.

Vive La Justice

BY Molly Simms in Music

I’m embarrassed to admit it, but I should come right out and say it: my name is Molly, and I’m a Francophile. Clichéd, but true—I read French street-style blogs, I am an obsessive stinky-cheese fan, I’ve visited France on multiple occasions, and I studied the language for close to nine years. (Which means I can speak it well enough to order something complicated in a restaurant, but not well enough to have a discussion about Truffaut.) So I was easily won over by Justice, the French electro-pop band whose tunes you can hear virtually everywhere nowadays. Read More

Cold Cave @ Terminal 5

BY Jen Hazen in Music

If you've been to New York City's Terminal 5 venue, you know that it's essentially the cage in the apocalyptic film Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome. Hordes of people are crammed into a two-tiered concrete arena with weird cable "fencing" on the 2nd floor to keep them from falling a few hundred feet to a live soundtrack. But it was actually not a bad place to see NYC-based band Cold Cave, now on tour to promote their sophomore album Cherish the Light Years (Matador). Then again, I wasn't being shoved around in the pit on the 1st floor, either. Read More

Holy Ghost! @ Terminal 5

BY Jen Hazen in Music

  They're young. They're super cute. And they're coming to a dance floor near you. Actually, Holy Ghost! is probably on the verge of taking over every club's sound system around the globe. Okay, not every club, but tons of them. I checked out the five-piece Brooklyn-based band Saturday night at Terminal 5, wondering how their infectious club beats would translate to a live stage performance. All I can say is: Holy shit! Holy Ghost! is one of my fave bands right now.   I'm not a huge fan of club music, but these tracks transcend all of that. Read More
People use a variety of things to combat the grumpies. Booze, bad television, shopping excessively, and arguing with strangers is just a short list of things that can be brought into play to chase the blues away. But nothing quite does the trick like conjuring up an image of Zooey Deschanel in a sun dress, jumping up and down while banging on a tambourine - which is exactly what she did for about an hour and a half at the sold out She & Him show at Terminal 5 in Manhattan a few nights ago.

Love her or hate her, Hole front-woman Courtney Love has a knack for keeping herself in the headlines. This time, it's because she's gotten the band back together since disbanding in 2002 (with none of the original members) to support a new album with a handful of tour dates. What was originally going to be released as a Courtney Love record, the new Hole album, Nobody's Daughter, is scheduled for release on April 27th, the same date as the band's New York show at Terminal 5.  Tickets go on sale tomorrow through Ticketmaster but are available now until 10p.m. Read More
