Dave Grohl Announces Foo Fighters’ Hiatus

Last Saturday a free concert was held in Central Park to help stop poverty, called the Global Citizen Festival. Neil Young and Crazy Horse, the Black Keys, K’naan, and the Foo Fighters headlined the festival, and despite all the noise, Dave Grohl somehow managed to say a few words that really caught fans’ attention. According […]

On the Verge: Morning Parade

On the Verge: Morning Parade

“I actually prefer touring with bands I don’t really know that well,” said Morning Parade’s vocalist and guitarist, Steve Sparrow. “I think if we toured with our own heroes, we’d just constantly make fools of ourselves every day.” The UK rock band played shows in support of Walk The Moon, which Sparrow described as being […]

“Enjoy the Company” by The Whigs

“Enjoy the Company” by The Whigs

Despite its mid-September release, The Whigs’ new album Enjoy the Company reminded me of summer. The Whigs have mastered the art of feel-good rock and roll. Each song would be perfect for a road trip, late nights with friends, and summer barbecues. Of course, the album cover, which features a lone hot dog and a […]

Lavender Diamond Live In Studio

Lavender Diamond Live In Studio

Becky Stark, Lavender Diamond’s singer, is a perfectionist. Actually, to be more accurate, the whole band could fall under that category. Their warm up session was almost as long as their in-studio performance during which they performed their first two songs twice, to make sure they had the best take possible. Normally this would test […]

Adele to Write Song for New James Bond Film

The James Bond movies have quite a reputation when it comes to their theme songs. The franchise is notorious for using big name musical artists like Paul McCartney, Duran Duran, and Nancy Sinatra to perform the theme that plays in the opening credits of the famous spy series. And with the new James Bond film […]

The Wallflowers at the Paradise

The Wallflowers at the Paradise

It’s almost easy to see why ‘90s alternative roots rock group The Wallflowers changed the band’s name from The Apples all those many years ago. Fronted by Jakob Dylan, the band’s understated confidence brings with it a presence that is both relaxed and mesmerizing all at the same time. For those who attended last night’s […]

“The Elle King EP” by Elle King

“The Elle King EP” by Elle King

Lately, we have been used to the female crooner, but Elle King has something genuine to offer. Her tenderness comes through with honesty and her ability to piece together such a punch out of her pain. King has a way of drawing you straight to the middle where it’s all happening and she won’t let […]

Later… with Jools Holland Returns to TV

Later… with Jools Holland Returns to TV

Despite America’s plethora of late night talk shows, we don’t have anything quite like Later… with Jools Holland. Returning for its forty-first season, Later… is a show dedicated entirely to music. Hosted by Jools Holland, the show has been going strong since 1992. Despite focusing primarily on rock and indie music, Later… has featured everyone […]
