In some good news for your Friday, Bonnie Tyler will sing your drunk karaoke go-to “Total Eclipse of the Heart” during the actual solar eclipse. However, “Total Eclipse Of The Heart” is in fact longer than the total eclipse of the sun, which will last for 2 minutes and 40 seconds. (There are several versions of “Total Eclipse of the Heart,” ranging from in length from 3 minutes 49 seconds for a 2005 re-recording to 6 minutes 59 seconds for the original album version.) No worries,...
Even though Kesha’s nearly-three-year legal battle to free herself from producer Dr. Luke continues, our wildgirl is finally back in the game, and as someone who has loved basically every single song Kesha has ever put out, I’m ready for shit to get lit. I flung my limbs around mosh-pit-style to “Dancing With Tears In My Eyes” after my high school boyfriend dumped me. I cried to the “The Harold Song” on repeat when my 9-month fuckboy dumped me. I drove around blaring “Last Goodbye” as...
We stopped by the Bowery Ballroom to check out the all-star female super group Guns N' Hoses as they celebrated the 30th anniversary of Guns N' Roses' Appetite For Destruction (July 21, 1987).

When did this obsession begin?  Erin Marsz (Axl): I wanted...

  One the coolest concert tours happening during this hot summer is made up three female-led bands, Deap Vally, Garbage, and Blondie. At their stop at the Beacon Theatre in New York on Tuesday evening, Deap Vally hit the stage first. This dynamic duo, compromised of Julie Edwards and Lindsey Troy, got the audience primed for an electric night with their bluesy, garage punk sound and ferocious growling vocals, featuring songs from their latest album, Femejism. Next up were Garbage. The great Shirley Manson, Butch Vig, and Co....

ARCADE FIRE Everything Now(Sony/Columbia)4/5 BUST rating Can Arcade Fire live? Their fifth LP, Everything Now, is convinced that the internet – and its infinite content – is hijacking our existence.

Defy and Enlighten. Those are the best two words to describe Solange's presence at Pitchfork Music Festival. The entire festival was jam-packed with high energy and activist-themed performances, and the common theme of the this year's lineup was the intersection of music and activism. It was present in Pitchfork's Beats>Bullet initiative, and in the performances of artists like A Tribe Called Quest and Madame Gandhi. Solange’s performance, however, went beyond entertainment or spectacle. Her performance was a work of art worthy of any contemporary art museum. In...
Miss Eaves gave a first listen of her new album Feminasty through NPR, and it couldn’t be more amazing. She let us have an early listen, but the official release date is August 4th. The Brooklyn-based rapper killed it with tracks like “Fuccboi Salute” where she raps, “Me and my clique, when these pricks coming through/ Yelling 'FUCK YOU' it's the fuccboi salute!” I knew it was going to be good when I first heard “Thunder Thighs” earlier this summer, and she did not disappoint....
