Jul 25 Action Bronson, Ab Soul, Danny Brown At Best Buy, Wednesday, July 23rd, 2014, Reviewed
t is 11pm on a Wednesday night at Best Buy and while it doesn’t say “Sold Out” for the third annual Peter Palooza, I have never seen the club busier. Peter Palooza is Hut 97′s Sunday night new rap DJ Peter Rosenberg and the birthday celebration is his, but the people want Action Bronson.

Jul 25 Oliver Sykes of Bring Me The Horizon Addiction Admission
Alternative Press Magazine Music Awards was the stage in which Sykes decided to let us in on his addiction. There is something about winning an award that makes people want to spill their beans. We could have done without this but hey it was all for good purpose I suppose

Jul 25 1981 – A+ List
At the # 1 spot, American artist: “Angel Flying Too Close to the Ground,” Willie Nelson. One of Willie’s best – a beautiful lyric of self-less love matched with equally inspiring guitar work. A #1 country hit.

Jul 25 Beck’s Brother, Channing Hansen Is Making Quantum Knits.
If you don’t appreciate modern art, you obviously will have a hard time to appreciate anything over there, and I was quite confused about a lot of things (if not everything) presented in the exhibit. Beck’s brother makes hand-knitted constructions, stretched on wood frames, like the one you can admire above, and he builds them from scratch

Jul 25 Jon Bon Jovi Solo Gig For Charity
It seems like a good deal to me because it is at least one for a good cause and you don’t have to actually go to New Jersey. The last time I did it, for Maria Taylor, the PC kept freezing but I’ve invested my $50 and I will be watching.

Jul 25 Jack White Performs Three Hour Set In Chicago (About as Long As The Last Three Times I Saw him Combined)
Lazaretto is one of his worst works to date, and three hours of his metallic shredding woulda had me ready to kill him among others. below you’ll find his cover of “Manic Depression” -just what the world needed. White has worn out all the good will his radio city residency had with me and then some

Jul 25 Westboro Baptist Church vs Panic! At The Disco
We all know that bands like Panic! and fun. have received a lot of backlash for supporting gay rights, which is ridiculous. It’s like receiving backlash for speaking up against racism or sexism. Regardless, the guys turned the controversy into a selfless way of revenge, which was pretty clever.

Jul 25 rock nyc top 10 Songs week of July 21st, 2014
the question is, what is generally considered to be one of the best albums of the year by La Roux, will it be enough to get her back on the charts? The other question is, why do so many albums only have one good song in em? The answer to this and other questions ill be explained after we stop listening to Four Years Strong.

Jul 24 Corners’ Residency At The Echo W/ Levitation Room And Mr. Elevator & The Brain Hotel, Monday July 21st 2014
I spotted a few people who were already at Corners’ first week residency, and even talked to two of them,… this wasn’t a surprise, I was certain people would come back to experience Corners’ awesome sound. This time, I didn’t dropped my camera, but the Echo was as crowded and as rowdy as ever

Jul 24 Wrapped up in the Darkness (or spending your life waiting for a moment that just don’t come) (Bruce essay from a maturing teen)
The years have passed and I still think the “Born to Run” and the “Darkness” LP’s are about the best back-to-back albums ever released by an artist. I still hadn’t seen the man live in concert yet. I lived vicariously through bootlegs, live radio concerts and my brother Jack’s photos of Bruce’s show at The Forum.

Jul 24 Steven Tyler, Sticking Up For the Farm Animals
Massachusetts holds a very special place in my heart. That’s why I was thrilled to learn from my friends at The Humane Society Of The United States about a critical bill that would ban the extreme confinement of animals used for food”

Jul 24 Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark Throwback Thursday: We reviewed The Julie Taymor Version In 2010
No messing: the end of the first act, when Spiderman battles Green Lantern, every promise Julie Taymor has made as a savant of the theatre is potentially answered. To say it is eye popping is to understate: Lantern and Spidey literally swing from the rafters and while the wire are visible, it is beautiful in ways Cirque De Soleil never ever is.

No Middle Class In World Of Pop 2013

These people are dead

At this point I have more than my own fair share of friends in the music business and I have no answers, zero, as to how to make a damn living at it. It is a mixture of dumb luck and extreme talent: you need both, the right song, the right time, the right place. You need to have a licensing agent of super natural gifts, lowered expectations and your fingers crossed and recrossed and all of that? Who knows? How can you tell these things?
