February 28th, 2011 · Comments Off on Who took the bomp? A Le Tigre Documentary?

Odd, but potentially entertaining. I still remember seeing my first Le Tigre show at the old Justice League in San Francisco. Absolutely blew my mind at the time. I had flirted with Kathleen Hanna’s music in the past, but nothing from her had ever punched me in the face quite like that live show. And […]

VIDEO: Radiohead “Lotus Flower”

February 18th, 2011 · Comments Off on VIDEO: Radiohead “Lotus Flower”

Prince Kicks Kim Kardashian off the Stage at MSG

February 8th, 2011 · 1 Comment

When Prince tells you to dance, you dance. Otherwise, you get booted off the stage, even if you’re a talentless famewhore with a gigantic ass. In other news, Prince played “Pop Life” and “Sign O’ the Times” at this show, which makes me extremely jealous of those in attendance. [via Rolling Stone]

February 4th, 2011 · Comments Off on Death From Above 1979 Say YES to Full Blown Reunion

I suppose only death can stop a reunion these days, and even that’s a maybe depending on who’s dead. So, it’s safer to assume that your favorite broken-up band will reunite than it won’t.
