Musicians Featured In Olympics Closing Ceremony

Musicians Featured In Olympics Closing Ceremony

A while ago, I reported on the suspected opening ceremony playlist for the 2012 Olympics. While the opening ceremonies were more of an abstract fever dream rather then the pageantry and pure unbridled extravagance that was Beijing, they had their own quirky (34 million dollar) charm to it. The closing ceremony, on the other hand, […]

New Music From Conor Oberst’s Band Desaparecidos

Conor Oberst must have a hard time keeping track of all the projects he’s involved in, but after ten years of silence from Desaparecidos, he started paying attention to them again. Desaparecidos takes Oberst’s music in a much different direction than his other projects. The songs are driven much more by anger than thoughtfulness (and […]

Chicago’s Lollapalooza Evacuated

Chicago’s Lollapalooza Evacuated

I’m sure most music fans wish they could be at Lollapalooza. However, I doubt they would elect to be there this Saturday when severe storms in Chicago forced the festival to be put on hold and the crowd to evacuate. Not necessarily a day of music-loving fun. The festival orchestrators urged attendees to take refuge in underground evacuation […]
