I love Arcade Fire. And while I was one click away from buying my ticket to their U.S record release show for The Suburbs last week at Madison Square Garden, I went against my instinct and bought a bus ticket out of town instead. But it worked out in my favor regardless. Turns out director Terry Gilliam livecasted the entire show on YouTube for everyone who missed it. But the recording of the show is more than just a video recording, Gilliam seemed to layer images ... Read More
Longing for some more MIA shenanigans? Well, in that case, here you go! I present to you the new video for XXXO off her new album MAYA. Welcome to the ex-MySpacer's glittery HTML comment nightmare, kiddies. But seriously, it's all in good fun. I mean, I know she's a powerful lady, but I wonder if she's powerful enough to finally sink that SPAM-infested Titanic. Okay, I kid, I kid...just watch it and see for yourselves! You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to ... Read More

Masshysteri Steals Our Hearts

BY Nissa in Music

Ex-Blondie bassist Greta Brinkman said it best when referring to women in the music scene in the 1980's:"At that time, there was this shining moment in American DIY music when everybody was in their own bands, driving around in the back of a beat-up van and putting on shows in their basement. And every band had at least one woman in, it seemed, it was no big deal. It wasn't until the late 1980s when everything went testosterone-mad that the scene became hostile ... Read More
And here, ladies and perhaps gentlemen, is something I know much less about, but is still incredibly awesome. Check out this new video from Invincible + Waajeed, Detroit Summer/Emergence. First watch analysis? Straight up city summers, sweating the moment you get out the door even though you took a shower 20 minutes ago, wearing as little clothing as possible even though you have more jeans and tshirts than anything else, dresses even though you don't feel dressy, ...

No Doubt and I go way back. As in, Tragic Kingdom could very well be my favorite album ever (yep, I almost said it...it's that serious), and it's the oldest CD I own. I think I asked for it for Christmas or something when I was in 5th grade. It got scratched all to hell and only finally stopped working and started skipping about 2ish years ago. As in, the first song I ever sang at a talent show was Suspension Without Suspense from Return of Saturn. As in, when we ... Read More
If you like women, rock, and women in rock (which…let’s face it, who doesn’t?), then you should probably make it a point to head to Le Poisson Rouge on Bleecker on August 18th. Why? Because they are presenting an NYC Women in Rock show, duh. Doors are at 6:30, show’s at 7. Get there fast for your $12 tickets; seems that this thing could fill up and there’s only so much room! The acts include: Hypodive, Jennings, Lily Sparks, Anna ... Read More

Canadian bred duet Seth Smith and Nancy Urich, formally known as Dog Day, are gracing NYC with their presence on August 12th and 13th.  Deemed "the future of indie-rock" by Coke Machine Glow, Dog Day is made up of guitar, drums and vocals that shake the already fossilized structures of the underground music phenomenons before them.  Their last record, Concentration received stellar praise from all around and it most definitely deserves your ...

I'm behind the times with this post but I was driving in my car and almost choked on my granola bar when I heard Eminem, a man charged with domestic violence, and Rihanna, a survivor of domestic violence singing a duet about domestic violence together.   And then I almost threw up my granola bar when I listened to the lyrics.  Not because I hate the song but simply because the lyrics of the song are so raw and visceral.    "Come inside, pick up ...
