"Twenty-thirteen marks the thirteenth anniversary of what we 'round these parts like to call The Last Great Classic Rock Album, one slab of plastic and ink labeled Thirteen Tales From Urban Bohemia. You guys know that one, right?
To celebrate the occasion, and in anticipation of the forthcoming reissue on cd, vinyl and ltd edition vinyl boxset, The Dandy Warhols have a few somethings… Read More

Stage AE Outdoors - Tickets For The Outdoor Show Are Now Sold Out - Thank you!!
Fall Out Boy is back.
Ending a three-year hiatus that commenced following a 2009 greatest-hits set, the popular emo-rock band announced Monday that it would release a new album and launch a North American tour in May.
"This isn't a reunion, because we never broke up," the group said in a statement. "We needed to plug back in and make some music that matters to us."

The best rock 'n' roll, the kind that gets under your skin and makes all your senses heighten, is simple and comprised of hard work and unrelenting passion-all of which JEFF The Brotherhood embody and exemplify on their Warner Bros. Records debut LP, Hypnotic Nights. Brothers Jake and Jamin Orrall have been playing together since they were little kids and formed the group when they were… Read More
Bloody Beetroots: From Electro-punk to Evolving Contemporary Music
Bloody Beetroots is Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo, the Italian producer/DJ born the same year as punk rock, a fact made clear by the"1977" tattooed across his chest. In fact, that tattoo is the most identifying public feature of Rifo, whose preference for wearing masks (like other cultural provocateurs from techno militants… Read More
Marina and the Diamonds, really just Marina Diamandis, was born in Wales to Welsh and Greek parents in 1986, although she has often claimed to be from Ancient Greece. After dropping out of four different music courses at four different universities, Marina decided to make her own way in music, and began writing her own unique brand of left-field pop songs under her new stage name. Early… Read More

Getting to Where We Belong: The Making of Passion Pit's Gossamer
Hundreds of hipsters, college kids and music biz schmoozers gather under a massive white tent to see Passion Pit. It is an afternoon shindig hosted by the blog Brooklyn Vegan, at the 2009 South by Southwest festival. The sun is setting and it is a classic make-it-or-break-it moment for Passion Pit,… Read More
On January 27, 1979, at a Moose Lodge in Redondo Beach, California, Black Flag took the stage for the first time. Whipping up as much meat energy as possible, they didn't so much play songs as create rapid-fire, rhythmic drives.
Everything was short. Stripped-down. A wall of distortion, built on a relentless series of riffs. And vocalist Keith Morris ran around the stage like an… Read More
California Guitar Trio's stunning virtuosity and sly sense of humor have earned them a rabid following and wide notoriety, with significant crossover in the progressive, acoustic and classical music scenes. If there was a Most Valuable Player award in the bass world, Tony Levin would be a top contender. Peter Gabriel, Pink Floyd, Paul Simon, and John Lennon are just a few of the legends… Read More
Cold War Kids means International Blues. We began in August '04 with friends, jangly guitar, hand claps, and a Harmony amp in a storage room atop Mulberry Street restaurant in downtown Fullerton, CA. For the first practices, having instruments was secondary to stomping and chanting; Clanging on heat pipes, thumping on plywood walls. Hollering into tape recorders. Slipping and swaying into… Read More
Neck of the Woods sees Silversun Pickups lighting out for the territories, stretching the boundaries of their exhilarating psychedelia with confidence, invention, and undeniable ambition. Having long made their bones as masters of widescreen power, the Los Angeles-based band's third Dangerbird Records album takes their filmic vision to another level entirely - this is full-on IMAX rock 'n'… Read More
The National's fifth album, High Violet, was released on 4AD on May 11th, 2010. It was the first to be recorded at the band's own studio in the Ditmas Park section of Brooklyn, with mixing by long time associate Peter Katis at his Tarquin Studios in Bridgeport, Connecticut. Pulses and impulses pull against each other creating a balance of tension. Let's call it musical tensegrity: engineered… Read More
Of Monsters and Men is an amiable group of five day dreamers who craft folkie pop songs. But last year, the normally mild-mannered six pack transformed into total rock stars after stomping out their competition during Musiktilraunir, a yearly battle of the bands in their native Iceland.
"We just kind of...won," recalls co-singer/guitarist Nanna Bryndis Hilmarsdottir. "We weren't… Read More
Say Anything has been making odd, unclassifiable indie rock music since they were 14 or 15 years old, playing strangely literate and loud rock, characterized by what one might imagine if Larry David fronted a Fugazi cover band with the members of Queen. Not that that's a stretch or anything.
Having been birthed from the indie/punk boom of the early twenty-first century, Say Anything… Read More

The Flaming Lips are an American rock band formed in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma in 1983. Instrumentally, their sound contains lush, multi-layered, psychedelic rock arrangements, but lyrically their compositions show elements of space rock, including unusual song and album titles-such as "What Is the Light? (An Untested Hypothesis Suggesting That the Chemical [In Our Brains] by Which We Are… Read More

One of the seminal figures of new wave, Adam Ant (born Stuart Leslie Goddard) had several distinct phases to his career. Initially, he explored a jagged, guitar-oriented post-punk with his group Adam and the Ants before giving way to a more pop-oriented, glam-tinged musical direction that brought him to the top of the charts. After that had run its course, he refashioned himself as a mainstream… Read More
The xx exist in a time and space of their own making. In 2009 the south London trio's debut album 'xx', quietly made at night over the course of two years, bled steadily into the public consciousness to become shorthand for newly refined ideas of teenage desire and anxiety. Articulated with a maturity beyond their years, its hallmarks were restraint and ambiguity. In the age of the over-share,… Read More
The voice is unmistakable - immediately identifiable by those that know it and intensely intriguing to those that don't. It belongs to Dallas Green, perhaps better known as the man who writes, records, and performs under the moniker of City and Colour.
Already renowned across Canada thanks to the success of his previous two full length albums - 2005's Sometimes and 2008's Bring… Read More
