Did You Say Foxygen? They Are About To Drop A New Album
that’s a bold way to say we are here and we are big
Kevin Morby Goes Home With His New Video ‘Dorothy’
‘Dorothy, my guitar, represents the people I’ve encountered and experiences I’ve had over the past 7 years of touring, because she has always been there with me.’
FIDLAR And Bully Cover The Magnetic Fields’ ‘Absolutely Cuckoo’
Never mind, the two punk bands decided to cover the Magnetic Fields song and the result is actually fun, while giving to the ’69 Love Songs’ earworm an Island vibe, yes the tune would actually go very well with Carper’s Hawaiian shirts
Morrissey Announces His 2015 US Tour
We shall breast the tape at Barcelona and Murcia (Spain) in April and May, and then we square up for four nights at the Sydney Opera House in Australia. Good times for a change. Is it illegal to be this happy? Thank you, also, to everyone who has managed to download “Kiss me a lot” from iTunes. We value your interest and encouragement beyond measure.
Must See: David Crosby At the Town Hall, June 25th
During the tour, Crosby will be performing selections from his latest album 2014’s Croz, and his 1971 solo debut, If I Could Only Remember My Name, as well as songs from his bands CSN, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young and The Byrds.
10 Reasons Madonna Ticket Sales Are Soft
In 2012, for the MDNA, she sold out Yankee Stadium in 20 minutes and added another date and she added two nights at MSG are on the back, so consider it the equivalent of selling out MSG SIX TIMES. This time she can’t sell out two nights? What happened?
Madonna’s “Rebel Heart” Tour Tickets On Sale March 9th (She Plays NYC in September)
I am looking longingly at that September 16th, 2015 at Madison Square Garden. A Wednesday. I know it is probably gonna be an expensive piece of crap, with her waddling on stage at 11pm, and doing one lousy set piece after another before re-arranging “Like A Virgin” so it sounds like a dirge.
ILOVEMAKONNEN On Tour, Spring 2015
“I’m a not so regular person in a not so regular world, and I’m just making the most of it and embracing myself,” explains Makonnen (born Makonnen Sheran), who signed to Drake’s OVO imprint in Sept. 2014. The success of the gold-certified “Tuesday” has been explosive: it topped the Billboard
The Rolling Stones North America Concert This Summer?
“Oh yeah, we had a meeting in New York with the boys, and we’re gonna come to North America again in the summer.” That’s blabbermouth Ron Wood telling GMI Rock News that, indeed, the Stones will be playing the States in 2015. Tidings of great joy no doubt though
Steely Dan And China Plate Elvis Costello Hit The Road
Why is Costello opening for Steely Dan on what is a really pretty big tour? What sense does that mean. To be fair, Costello has played a whole lot over the past two years, you can’t throw a brick without seeing him and I personally have seen him something like five times since he opened for the Who at a charity gig a coupla years ago.
Mark Knopfler, New Album And Tour 2015
Here in New York it is Tuesday afternoon, that is a State of Emergency and I am rushing like crazy to hit the road and get home… just like Mark Knopfler (well, we are both hitting the road. So this cut and paste from Sacks and Co PR firm should be forgiven because if I die…? Right?
Joan Jett – the Who May 2015: The Rock Show of The year?
Elvis Costello opened for the Who a coupla years ago at a benefit gig, but you’d have to go as far back as the Clash to find an opening act as great as Joanie for these cats. Because, yes indeed folks, Joan Jett is the opening act at the Who’s 50 Anniversary gigs in May 2015.
Lana Del Rey And Courtney Love: A Hole Lotta Shaking Going On
However, I love both of Lana’s albums and it should be something of real interest Love opening for her. It could be the worst thing ever seen by man, or it could be better than it has any right to be. Either way, Lana and Courtney are touring next year
Must See: Taylor Swift 1989
I will be going to both Jingle Ball and Metlife, I mean of course, since her one chance, the chance I mentioned in 2010, to tour theatre size rooms performing acoustic sets are just about over now, is completed. Indeed, even the Tay I was friends with on Facebook has disappeared. In 2010 she is way too big, that’s all.
Dropkick Murphys To Play St. Patrick's day In Dublin 2014
They are playing Dublin the next St. Patrick’s Day, a somewhat stupid idea since March 17th is much bigger in nyc than on the Emerald Isle, but we will still get em for three nights at Irving Plaza.
The Who At 50: I Know What It Means But I Can't Explain
My bet is they will be back in 2016 as well and end it all in London around two years from now, Pete and Roger make 50 million a piece and live happily ever after. I also really hope they get Wilko Johnson, if he is still kicking, one of the great disappointments in the Daltry-Johnson tour didn’t make it to New York. The film I saw was superior to the Who last year.
Diana Krall Delays Album And Tour Due To Illness
Both of the songs “Desperado” and “California Dreaming” are useless. “California Dreaming”? it isn’t deep harmony why bother and Krall has zero, nothing, nada to add to “Desperado” if you’ve heard Linda Ronstadt’s version. Why is Gaga and Bennett singing “Cheek to Cheek”, by the way
Bob Dylan Playing Beacon Theater This November, 2014? Must see? You Have To Ask???
To quote the great man to the great man, I’d see him in anything, I’d stand in line. But even by those standards, four nights at the Beacon Theater? Wow!! Friday November 28th, Saturday, November 29th, Monday, December 1st and Tuesday December 2nd, 2014.
Gwar Tours This Fall
A band with no real purpose in this world but to make 40 year old dads and 11 year old boy fist pump and scream “yeah!’ like primal animals. A band with a gimmick will rarely get any positive response from me mostly because what you sound like is more than what you appear to be
12 Months To Summer For 5 Seconds Of Summer, 2015
we already almost nearing the end of NEXT SUMMER… well, I guess you’d consider that smart planning ahead of nothing else. The band and management gains interest on the money for 13 months and the fickle tweens who might easily loose interest in the band have a vested interest in still following them. Sounds like an awful awful good idea to me
Morrissey Speaks!, Not To Us… and not much.
Twitter lit up like a nuclear reactor as people started scrambling to tabulate airfares and ticket costs and jump the line scenarios. See those crazy Brits haven’t had a dose of Mozza in years and well this is their big chance. Its an endearing thing to watch the excitement mount but didja notice there is no dates in England
Holy Ship! On The Water Rave 2015
The Holy Ship! Cruise is a great opportunity to party it up on the wide open sea this go round there are two tours of duty January 3rd – 5th with a stop at Half Moon Cay, Bahamas, and from February 18th – 21st with excursions at Nassau, Bahamas and Coco Cay, Bahamas
Glen Tilbrook Happy Ending US Tour
Squeeze was and will always be one of the most memorable bands of the 80s to this day I adore their work and find myself belting out random lyrics at the oddest times. Granted, this tour is not Squeeze but just the blonde guy but still- he was the pipes so you can be sure he’s throwing in some classics and that alone is reason to attend.
Shinobi Ninja Ready To Drop Second Album
There was an App, Mike Machinest fed me the occasional demo, including a killer track “Rusty Stab”, videos have dropped, concerts have been played and of course, the awesome “Amped To 12” made an appearance in the Wayan Brothers movie “Scary Movie 2”.
Hatsune Miku To Support Lady Gaga North American Tour
Who the hell is Hatsune Miku? No one, its a hologram that sounds like a helium infused twiddle bug. The pitch alone should star a riot but in consideration of Gaga’s fans, this may just work
Devo On Tour 2014, One Man Down
I do understand that its a job that needs to be done but there is an eerie sort of disrespect in it taking place so soon. Will they install a hologram? I mean they do have that science nerd schtick.
Black Flag On Tour, Uh Oh
the band with vocalist Mike Vallely hit the road and actually make it all the way to the East Coast and better than that all the way to Western Connecticut where I intend to be there amongst the upstarts to see whats new from these geezers.
